    Know the coverage of the Troops, know the divisions, be able to name the units of MSP. And make sure you know who the Colonel is. It's an interview with scripted questions. The background is only an issue if they find things you didn't mention or don't have legitimate reasons or explanations for any negative things they find.

    Anyone have any Intel on when the list might be compiled? I tried to go back through previous threads to see when the list came out based on the Academy start date. Most likely waiting for budget approval?

    Most of the 83rd has already completed the backgrounds. Do you think that they are selecting the 83rd candidates off the new test... Because that's not happening.

    I'm in the group who just completed the background investigations, I'm trying to find out around what point does the appointment list get made for the ticket to the happiest place on earth

    Orientation for the 81st that started 12/2/2013 was in October. Orientation for the 82nd that started 10/19/2015 was in September. If you get a golden ticket, you probably won't know about it until a month / month and a half prior to the anticipated start date...

    Appreciate the info. I had assumed it would be something like that. From what I'm hearing August is the preferred start, although I've been told to plan on October. Having to check the website everyday from now until September will become tiresome. Not a bad problem to have I guess. Thanks again.

    83rd RTT website updated. Good luck to all - looks like background checks are about to kick in to high gear.

    Does anyone know who this is looking for guys who didn't get invited to the first wave of med certs?

    I'm sorry, I was a victim of auto correct.

    Initially, a number of candidates were invited to go the medical appointments. There were a number of candidates who did not receive an appointment date.

    I was just curious if anyone knew how it was looking for the candidates who didn't get a medical appointment the first time.

    Thank You

    Helpful hint: Proofread before you submit. Will come in handy if you become a "chosen one".

    Check the website . . .it was recently updated and so was the list. If your number no longer appears, you are no longer being considered.

    Website updated . . .dates in July for Orientation and uniform fittings were provided. Also the second wave of candidates are no longer in contention (score of 97.75 or lower). Best of luck to those who are still in the running for the 100 to 175 spots.

    That was a pretty drastic cut down in estimated class size! Let's hope it's on the top end for everyone's sake

    Thaleoking MassCops Member

    If the top number which appears to be 175 is what they go with. . . Any idea on how many will get called in on the 1st day and how many will be placed on "HURRY UP AND WAIT" status
  18. HuskyH-2

    HuskyH-2 G-Rap made me do it!

    Probably something they will elaborate on at orientation

    If memory serves... based on historical stats of day 1 no-shows, drop outs, following Monday no shows etc... I'm thinking it'll be between 200-210.

    Spare parts of about 30, just in case.

    A lot of variables in place, and my numbers could be far off, but it's from memory from past classes.

    If the current estimated size I s 100-175, I would think that's the number they want going in, no? Or do you think they meant that they want to graduate that many (based on the release from 6/19)
  21. Bloodhound

    It would be the amount they want graduating. The 82nd had 220 slots for day 1, graduated around 160 if I recall.
  22. Thaleoking

    Thaleoking MassCops Member

    So if 175 is the top number . . .then 175 will show up on the 1st day? With a standby count of about 50 or so to backfill depending on how quickly people drop out along with the few who just won't show up?
  23. MrCapias

    MrCapias MassCops Member

    So given that they want to graduate 100-175 (a pretty large range) how many do you think wind up being invited to the Academy?
  24. unexpo

    unexpo MassCops Member

    (220/160) = (x/175)

    X= (220x175)/(160)

    X= 240.6

    So about 240 given they want to graduate 175

    Even if you wind up being completely wrong, I just love that you made a formula out of this
