    Email's were sent today with band and band score info. Anyone have further insight into what the process is like going forward? They stated in the email that applicants were separated into two bands and that all applicants in those bands were equal. Why even have a band score then?

    I was in the last process for "BAND A" but did not make it to interviews. If the process is anything like the last one, its going to be resume review for selection, biddle test, interviews, backgrounds.

                  A or B band. They usually get 3300 that apply/test.

                  Pretty good read
