    Process Question - Just Need Clarification

    I don't get it. ATC is your "dream", but you haven't applied the last 4 years?

    DENIED FOR ILLEGAL DRUG USE

    Willfully admitting to this (assuming it is not connected to anything traceable like an arrest) might be the worst advice I've ever heard in my life. Call me crazy, but your "friend" probably isn't your friend or just loves a cruel practical joke.. I wouldn't tell my worst enemy to admit to that...

    7/7 Non-prior Bid

    Depends, if you're hired direct to N90 and overcome all the odds stacked against you, pass TETRA, and certify at the facility, you will never be able to leave N90.

    7/7 Non-prior Bid WAITING ON TOLS

    You're a Band 2 Vet, you scored between a 70-79 which included your Vet preference (If any). You will not be receiving a TOL. Retake the AT-SA next bid.

    7/7 Non-prior Bid

    3,000+ people we're given TOL's last year, not 1,400. Again, there is no need to randomly guess statistics. The academy was in full swing last year. 480ish is not remotely accurate.

    April 28th Prior Experience Bid

    It should be an easy issue to resolve. I've yet to hear of anyone not getting a facility they ranked in their top 3.

    April 28th Prior Experience Bid

    I can assure you that does not happen. Call her rep, they made mistake. Unless...are there extenuating circumstances? Like you're currently in the FAA and the facility she was assigned is close to the one you're currently at?

    7/7 Non-prior Bid

    921, there's no need to correct someone if you don't have the actual data in front of you.

    What Would You Do?

    Veterans have 5 and 10 point preference. CTI has no point preference. The only benefit is not having to take (and pass) the BA. To the OP, your decision is easy. Apply to the OTS bid as you continue your program. Continue working towards graduation with the intent of working at one of their...

    When You’re Offered a Class Date....

    lol, they're getting their number either way because someone else would take your place. Simply put, 2 months is an eternity, if you can't adjust your life to make that happen, you have bigger issues to resolve.

    San Juan CERAP - ZSU

    Are you from there or have friends/family you're trying to go down and help/support through the rebuild? My heart goes out to all the current controllers at STT, SJU, and ZSU, I can't imagine anyone volunteering to go down without an ulterior motive.

    April 28th Prior Experience Bid

    On average, when you receive your list and are placed, you will get three dates to choose from ranging from ~45 to ~75 days out. If you need more time then this, you can coordinate a later start date.

    NEST Question

    Over the past 4 years, 76% of people in your situation were removed from the FAA. All of them were training failures. As others have stated, if a level 7 up/down lost it's TRACON, most would be comparable to a level 4 or 5 tower. In my personal opinion, withdrawing from training shows the TRB...

    This. It's not illegal to disqualify you if you didn't meet the minimum criteria to be considered for the bid.

    New York TRACON - N90

    There's a document on the KSN that confirms it. It lists Vaughn CTI's as their target.

    April 28th Prior Experience Bid

    A lot depends on how much experience you have and what your end desire is as well. You won't have to make a decision on which to take until you have two TOL's in hand. If/When you get a TOL for the all source bid, it will say whether it's for terminal or enroute. If you have any desire to go...
