    I applied. Sucks you have to go to a mandatory orientation. Makes it hard for out of state applicants.

            Good to know! Was the orientation pretty much just going over the basic information? What time is your test?

              Yes sir. They give you a paper with the dates of each step in the process, go over a few things, and allow a few minutes to ask any question you want.. 8am. Process will move fast.

                    They told us we would get the schedule on 12/20 after all orientations were completed. I turned in my CPAT, so I am assuming I will have 1/12 or the next one depending on the size.

                      I happened to check my government jobs account today and I was able to schedule mine. You should check yours.
