      Does the written score matter or rank you? Or is just more focused on just pass / fail?

        I think it does help in ranking..but then again when you are labeled 'ELIGIBLE FOR HIRE' they put you in a hiring pool and then draw your name..like a lottery for the academy. So with that in perspective...I'd reckon that its 75 to pass and then listed pass/fail in the grand scheme if the recruitment process.

            • VERY disappointed. Hate the personality questions. I'm absolutely certain I got 90+ on the first portion. But overall score from those personality questions was 78. I'm definitely not getting hired.

                      Yeah, but those scores are the biggest factor in how high you place. I guarantee I didn't place high enough to actually get hired.

                          I called and spoke to HR they said that test scores dont matter for hir8ng..just pass or fail.

                          Im in the waiting list of eligible for hire. Geauxing on 2 years in July. Im hoping for spring academy being that I passed everything in July 2017. So far I counted me missing 3 academies.

                          Any vets with advice on what taking so long?

                          • So they scheduled me for a cpat on January 5 2019. I'm taking a cpat with a 3rd party vendor November 7.

                            Will that bump my written test date up or would it still be after January 5?
