        How did they inform you of passing medical? I did mine 2 weeks ago and I haven’t heard anything.

        S.c.o90 For the Investigative Interview, something came up in my background which was negatively impacting the chances of moving on in the hiring process. BE HONEST AT ALL TIMES! Cant stress this enough! Even if it looks and seems sooo insignificant, let them know about it. Honesty was what got me through the next step in the process. They will talk to everyone listed in your PHS.

        Also, keep in mind the my Initial Interview was a few months before my Final Interview. By the time I got to my CVSA or Investigative Interview, I believe most of my Background Investigation was done. Every division, BI, and applicant is different. For some it may be short because of his/her life experience. Its all on a case by case basis. Looking at your timeline, I do believe your moving on pretty quick! Hang in there.

        831H I received an email from the place where I did my medical. I also called the Cadet Hiring Unit 5 weeks after just to confirm what was stated on that email. You can reach The CHU at (916)843-3760

            JaySS We are in the same boat. Finished my Psych Oral 14JAN19. My BI isn't so sure about me getting a March invite so maybe sometime this summer.

              I spoke with CHU, I was told that there are too many applicants ahead of me. I was also told that next academy is sometime in July. I’m not sure if they’ll keep the academy size the same or push it back down to 50. All we can do is, study and workout to make our first few weeks easy.

              CTC II-19 07/08/2019 - 01/24/2020, look for classes to start at about 100 - 125 cadets. 50 is a graduating class size, not a starting class size.

              Yes looks like we have a few months to get our running in. I'm just grateful to know we made it through the process. I just wish we were lucky enough to start in the Spring when temps are pretty mild! Let me know if you're in the Bay Area. I work out with a few of the guys at outside of the APP
