    firerock I know a few guys that did...I’m March 5th, fully cleared to my knowledge,,,nothing yet. 43 processed today. And they invited 7 more for tomorrow to make up for the no shows from today. So 57 tomorrow. There’s always a chance we get into this class last minute due to no shows or people waiving,,,but there’s also a good chance we will be waiting until next academy. It is what it is...our time will come. STAY POSITIVE...worst case hopefully the fall it is for us!
    50 were invited today 7 waived, that’s why 7 more were emailed for tomorrow plus the 50 already
