    I had my CPAT in with my packet at initial processing back in July and also received that email. I went ahead and responded to the email by attaching my CPAT but have not received any sort of confirmation.

          They do the same test but Naperville and the Homewood test site seem to be the most used. I went to Naperville. Great group of guys!

            That’s awesome! I haven’t had my medical scheduling yet but my BI said he turned in my finished packet to HR about two weeks ago. Any chance they’ll do more medical scheduling before February? Or do they only do that everyone at one time , every couple of months.

I was there for a total of three hours. Nothing physical outside of the stress test. Hopefully that helps
              Hey buddy just wondering when your medical scheduling was and then the actual test. Thanks!

                  I got first call from BI last Monday for some follow-up questions on application and to submit a few documents. I also saw my credit report was ran by CFD over the past weekend. I've heard similar things happening with others in the November initial processing group.

                    • I processed Nov 14th. My BI turned in my completed packet to HR a few weeks ago. Really nice guy. Just waiting to hear for the medical now. I would expect for you to receive a call or email from a BI very soon.
