    As a veteran you get to apply pool 1 to the OTS bids and bypass the BQ. So become a veteran and you have a very good chance of getting picked up

    You're getting a conditional clearance to go to the academy. They will work on your full clearance in the mean time. You might be at your facility before that's complete.

    Yes but it costs the government a lot of money to send you to the academy. Barring they find anything about you by surprise, you're going to get your full clearance. If you do something stupid like get a DUI a week before you leave for OKC, they might not catch it until later, but they will.

    EKG is required. I think a lot of these doctors do not read the instructions for ATC pre-employment. For aviators, an EKG is not required if you're under 34, so that is where they are likely getting confused. Gonna have to get that or you'll definitely get hung up in the process.

    Yes, I would assume so. There is a very small chance a few people might get one later on to replace people who don't pass the background, medical, etc.

    Direct your frustration at the system instead of your fellow applicants who have no control over their timelines.

    Here's to another week of potential calls for class dates... As soon as I know I'm cleared I will rest easier.

    Yes, another person had the same scenario. You could Google your contact for the MMPI and find out which facility they work at, and try calling another line. That person could be on vacation for weeks, you never know. Failing that reach out to your HR rep and see if there is an alternate...

    My spider sense is tingling about getting a class date soon. Hope I'm right

    Are you sure you connected with the right people? The HR reps all sit in the same office together I assume...hard to believe they don't know that July bid candidates are getting class dates?

    Crazy fast and definitely caught me off guard. My stuff is done, I guess they could call me any day now. I hadn't planned on the academy until fall but better sooner than later.

    Probably the annoying bundle branch waves that others have had problems with on here before. On the plus side it's always good to make sure your heart is doing OK, definitely an important body part. Good luck!

    Gee, that's kind of a tricky one. Did you have an abnormal EKG during your physical with the AME? I can see why the doctor's are confused. This is what I could dig up. https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/avs/offices/aam/ame/guide/dec_cons/disease_prot/cardiovascular/

    7/7 Non-prior Bid

    Well in theory they would be backlogged with 2016 hires but they are getting jumped because many of them are not cleared yet. They are still waiting because they had some sort of snag in the process. Tier 2, medical, security, etc. Whenever you clear you are all-system's-go for launch to the...

    Boy oh boy. This is really something. Big congrats to bceltics! I have heard they are having a lot of difficulty filling classes, and are asking people from 2016 bid if they can make class dates with as little as a week's notice. I am sure there are people out there who are ready and willing to...

    If you listed both then the person running your clearance will decide. You don't have to send anything yourself
