    negative, I was planning to get it as soon as the BI reaches out to me. You think that would expedite my file?

      • I don’t think anyone after March 6th has had a BI yet but I could be wrong. I think they had 3 initial processing’s a week for 4 weeks. With about 50 ppl avg. so they got about 600 ppl to do BIs for

            Figure 100 per processing day. Count up the days they have processed. That gives you a rough estimate of how many they have gone through. Remember half or less are showing. I think one processing day had 63 and that seemed like the highest number of the days.

              Processed the 25th and turned in Cpat a couple weeks ago. Haven’t heard from BI either. Was thinking about emailing them next week if I don’t hear anything

                  Like I said I haven’t heard anyone that processed after the 6th getting a bi yet. There’s 600+ ppl and only a few BIs gotta be patient

                  • I highly recommend for EVERYONE to get their CPAT ASAP that’s all they say when you’re at the academy because they don’t move forward if you don’t have it!

                      I’d get it ASAP if I was you, I got the feeling that they moved everyone forward who had it done. Makes it easier for them

                      • They will not schedule a medical unless you have a CPAT.
