    Poudre1183,
    Any idea on how many they are looking to hire? I see you said trying to get to ~180, I think PFA has just under 170, so my guess is about 10 new hires.

    All my stuff is in, super excited about this prospect!

      Poudre1183,
      Will you require all of my college transcripts by Feb4th? I am having difficulty getting one of the transcripts in time due to the university being closed because of weather. I transferred universities during my college career. Will an official transcript (83hrs earned) from the university where I received my degree suffice? I have that one in my possession right now.
      Thanks!

        J.W,
        I saw on the PFA website that all material must be in by Feb 4th. I spoke with Bev (the person that we are supposed to send our transcripts to and she was really good about answering my questions).

          j.w.fire- PFA only requires that you have completed 60 college hours with a 2.0 GPA or greater. So if you have an OFFICIAL transcript for 83 hours and it's 2.0 or greater cummulative GPA then absolutely send that in. Depending on where you live you will want to drop some money and send it like next day air and certified so you know it was delivered by 5:00 PM Friday the 4th.

              I was just about to ask the same thing. I have yet to get an email regarding PVF, there are still a few hours until the end of the day so I'll hold on calling HR until the morning. Just really excited to get moving on this process!

                        How'd everybody do? What do you think the cutoff will be. I think I probably got a 90%.

                          I think I did pretty good. I know I missed about 4 on the "book" section, the last portion was easy.

                            I am a terrible judge of how I actually performed, I always think I have the right answer! Only time will tell but my guess is that you probably can't really miss more then 8-10 to move on...

                            Let's hope we find out soon, I hate the waiting game...
