      I'm in the low 40's so depending on how many drop there's a chance but I would guess I'll be in the second

          I've done everything for them the background medical psych drug test but haven't got anything offical from them yet so I'm just playing the waiting game and it's brutal. I know some other people in the top 50 including one in the top 5 and no one has officially recieved anything yet.

                No one has received anything official yet. I'm #9 on the list and they still can't give me a for sure because they are waiting on the backgrounds. We may not get an official offer without contingencies until two weeks before the start of the academy.

                They did say I had passed the physical and psych so it may be possible that they have had enough people fail the physical, psych, or CPAT that they know they will have to go at least that far down the list for the first academy.

                Just guessing though, I have no evidence and have heard nothing one way or the other if that is the case.

                    • I was told official offers will come on July 13, after the hiring list is approved at the July 12 meeting.

                            • So when is that second academy supposed to happen? Unfortunately didn't make the cut. I saw something with 5 alternates on it. Numbers 39,40,42,43, and 44.
