    Academy Leave of Abscence

    I was given a very rare 1 day of sick leave to go home over a weekend and be with my 2 week old son who had contracted bacterial meningitis. This was 3 years ago. I knew my facility beforehand and got approval from my ATM. My class was also between academics and the labs so I didn't miss...

    NEST Question

    Not being sarcastic. I found a priority placement list on stuck mic updated in January 2016 (basically worthless) but when I looked at pointsixtyfive.com I found one updated May 20, 2016. Valid and updated sources are very appreciated

    NEST Selection Question

    I've recently washed out of a level 7 up/down for radar. I have my tower certification and will hopefully be on the 6/8/16 panel to determine my new facility. I'm told it will be level 6 (or lower) tower only. According to the NEST Placement SOP they will use the Priority Placement List to...

    NEST Question

    MJ thanks for the pointsixtyfive source! I can't tell you how many pages I've had to sort through on stuck mic to find a bunch of this information and a lot of it is outdated. Updated and accurate information is greatly appreciated!

    NEST Question

    Do you know if you'll be on the 6/8/16 panel? I'm hoping my facility gets my paperwork in on time for me to make this panel

    04/23/2014 Tower

    I also accepted 4/23 class date. November 2011 panel, 3/2012 TOL. I was originally selected for ZDC but was redirected to KALB. Why stay at Kims over Isolabella? I'm having a hard time choosing

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    I don't think we'll have an issue selling thankfully. Lol I really was starting to consider other career paths, as several of my fellow CTI friends had done, but I'm glad this one ended up working out. At least you had some kind of inkling that things were going to change before you bought one...

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    I just got my redirect yesterday from ZDC to ALB... While I'm extremely excited for this, I just bought a house not even a month ago to make room for my second child due in April. We just barely hung family pictures up and now we've gotta turn around and sell the house, pack it up, and have a...

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    Maybe check and see how things are going with the current developmentals? Earlier in this thread there was talk of there being somewhat of a backlog at ZDC because they went from 8 areas to 6. Maybe this sequestration will be to our benefit in that the facility might not be so backed up when it...

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    Talked to a guy at ZDC and got a little info for those who aren't up to date with sequester facts that pertain to us TOL'ers. The academy is closed at least until the new budget is set in October. From what I was told, even people who received dates were turned away. So the line of people...

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    My news is very similar to what everyone is posting but this just more confirmation that things aren't looking good. Here's some of my timing with things so maybe this helps some of you get an idea of where you may be at? NOV 2011 Panel TOL email 4/26/12 Can anyone tell me if that's my...

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    Not that it pertains to TOL dates or classes, but since someone mentioned tier 2 MMPI .... I had to do this as well only to find out from the psychologist (2 hours from where I live) that I was "too happy" and they thought I was trying to 'beat' the first test. So basically I got a 6-8 week...
