      • RagingBull, you might want to ask about that. When I was going through the process, they told me that my wife had to be living with me by the time of the academy.

            Raging Bull - I remember her saying that your family did have to be with you. I think it's ok if it's short notice and they are moving. But not for the whole time.

            • I see the classes are starting soon. Anyone who needs residency, my buddy has a 4 bedroom house on the south side near 109th & western. Garage, driveway parking, large backyard, dining, large living room and connected family room. He will rent out as whole or individual rooms, great for a short term stay and easy carpooling to the academy. Best deal around... Walking distance to the bars, train and minutes to 111th & I57.
              PM,s only please

                          The only thing you will be notified of is if theres a problem with your medical. If not, next time you hear will be final processing.

                          • Has anyone actually went in for medical yet or did you guys only go in to schedule for medicals?
                            And also did they do backgrounds and home visits again for everyone? Seems like from reading the posts that they went from initial processing almost directly to scheduling medicals

                              Some people should have begun to go. The scheduling for my group was around 2 weeks in the future, so I imagine some have gone.

                              And yes, they did backgrounds but as far as I have heard, no home visits or phone calls unless they had questions.
