    I've got the last 2 stages of the hiring process (psych eval. and uniform measurements) coming up next week. What are the chances of getting through the entire process and then not getting in a recruit class?

    And the cost of living here in No. Va is pretty high. Definitely look into the low-cost recuit housing if that is an option.

      Anything is possible. I hate to be so vague, but it's a fact. Are you ALS? Like I said before, that makes a HUGE difference.

      Can't argue with that. I live in a three bedroom townhouse just outside the beltway on the south side and without my wifes salary, we sure wouldn't be able to afford living in County.

        I'm not ALS, but I already work for another agency within Ffx County gov't. I understand the best chance for me would be if I already had medical certs, but I'm hoping my time in at my current job helps a little bit.
