    Hey all, just curious if anyone on these forums is going to be in this class. A number of us on .65 have started a private chat group before heading out to OKC, just wanted to see if anyone else was here and wanted to join the group!

    This bums me out. I really felt I did well on the ATSA, but still have not been given a TOL. Hoping they have more slots to fill.

    See, I felt really good as well afterwards, and I didn't get a TOL. The radar sim, obviously I had a handful of mistakes, but I still knew to prioritize the sim. I guess it's hard to know exactly how well the word and logic problems went, but I thought I had a good grasp of them. I know that I...

    I'm right there with you. I have until September, so I might get lucky and have 2 more shots if needed, if indeed there is a bid in Jan, and another in July.

    I mean, you can see my single-digit (big jump to double, with this one) post numbers. Very astute. I get it, it's government. They aren't going to do anything effectively. I'm still going to mention flaws as I see them.

    Just feels like higher education in relevant fields, or references in the FAA, for example, should carry at least a little weight. As you said, not all elements of the ATSA seemed strictly relevant to the job, so if the test is scored as a whole, it may not be as telling as it seems.

    Seems like a poor method... basing selection entirely on numbers, where someone could have scored 10% on the radar sim, but 90% on everything else, and passed. I mean, what was the point of submitting an application and resume besides proving you had the work/education minimums, if a robot is...

    I see. So it's like a pro sports acquisition. "Approved, pending physical." Is this the stage where the selection process is no longer automated? I'm hoping my education level and references actually come into play now, since up until this point, the filtering is all based on explicit criteria...

    That's what I was looking for, yes. I was guessing that there was still one last legitimate hurdle. However, others, including my friend in the business, have said you take care of the physical and psych evals before the TOL, which would make sense - they probably want to make sure you're fit...

    Woo, referred!! Edit: Can anyone explain how the next couple of steps work? I see some saying they did not get a Temporary Offer Letter (I had to ask my buddy what TOL meant) after being referred - why would that be? Will we be told when/where to get the psych and physical evals done when we...

    Yeah, the test monitors were asking people to remove essentially any "loose" outer layers of clothing. Luckily I was wearing a favorite comfy plaid button-up that's a borderline sweatshirt, but since it was buttoned up they must have looked at it as more of a dress shirt. I would have been irked...

    Similar. I think I maybe missed 1 item from each of the 7 memory sections due to mistypes... and it seems like it asked over 100 items for each? Either that or it's timed - I don't know, I was going fast. The equations part was pretty easy too. I missed 1 or 2 on the spatial relations. Had a few...

    July 27th 2018 OTS Bid Announcement

    Did you find the ATCPrep radar sim to have some errors and bugs in scoring or recording responses? I feel that I am doing pretty well on it, but it seems to give me lower than expected marks for noting "no collision" scenarios, or failing to delete a plane when I hit the correct key. I just...

    Let us know. I won't bother them myself, I will wait to try again until they let you know it's been resolved.
