    I just got hired and am reporting to the preacademy in a week. The whole process takes a long time. Your BI has to take a microscope to you and then write a report basically summarizing his/her findings. The BI then makes a recommendation. It gets sent back to Salem and waits for the next selection board. Here they look at all of the applicants and decide who they want. After that you will get a call saying yes or no. If yes you go to an interview. 8 of 10 times you will get a conditional offer. They set you up with a academy date and set up a psych/ physical date. If you pass the psych and physical you're good to go. It took about 1 1/2 months from the background to the board. So my advice to you is patience. It sucks. Trust me I know.

Im an out of state applicant and was informed by my BI recently that my investigation will be a while and that the process has become far more competative. Perhaps because im an out of state applicant my process is a lot more difficult, but thats my story thus far. Any new word from anyone else?
    My BI is done. I am just waiting for the phone call.

    Crag-
    Had my B/I investigation interview last night, I think it went very well. In regards to your question I can only provide this...
    The investigator said that there is an academy in January and one in March. She said that she is pretty sure that January is full but not 100% sure. She also said that they are considering batching Marches academy and the late spring academy into one large class. So off that information I would expect that if selected you should be getting a call soon.

    Does anyone know how soon after they finish the BI that they call you to have you head over and do psych, medical, and interview?

    Well I hope it works out for you, I also would prefer OSP, but I may need to decide on WCSD if selected in Dec. as their Academy date is Jan. 6th. You sound to be in the same OSP group as I, which I was told academy date would be late spring/early summer start date. I imagine that selections would have to be made by late march.

    So did you have to do an essay? I want to be prepared, any info would be appreciated.

    So what was your essay question? I meet with the BI next Wednesday, I also face a similar potential decision to make with OSP and Wa. Co. Sheriffs Dept.
    Funny how they all hit about the same time. Gut tells me go with the first offer, cause you never know......

    Well I had the interview and it went well. I just wish I could predict the future so that I can make the right decision. Go with the county department that is offering or wait and see what happens with OSP, the department that I really want.

    Hmmmmmm.......

    Weird I had the exact same thing happen to me. OSP called a few weeks ago to schedule my final interview and a few hours later the Forest Service called offering me an LEO job. I thought about it till Monday and took the LEO job with the Forest Service. Funny how these things work out

    That's cool. His name is not Brian.

    On a side note I received a Job offer today from a county department here in Washington. I would rather work for OSP, but at the same time I don't want to give up a job offer. Geesh, I knew something like this would happen.

    Wow, as if the "plethora" of essays you wrote for the background packet wasn't enough . Can you tell me what the essay is about? or is that off-limits for asking?

    Thanks again!
