    Any Idea On The Next Announcement?

    I think that is a good idea charging a application fee. That way the FAA might be able to test more people on the AT SAT since it was partially subsidized by the applicant.A lot of state jobs charge an application fee here in the tri state area. Shit i may have spent close to 200 dollars in...

    How Many Potential Canidates Are to Be Hired?

    maybe 800 i think. For some reason a lot of people here are assuming that no one has a Bachelors Degree and is unqualified.I know for a fact that many Vaughn graduates are applying and a good majority of them have Bachelor's degrees.I was at Rutgers University last week and word got around that...

    The Opinion Article on the WSJ: The Fall of the College

    I don't think ITT Tech and Devry is ABET accredited though so that is what most employers look at. I have some friends who went to Johnson and Whales University and got degrees in engineering and can't find a job because most won't take their degrees seriously because it's not ABET...

    Any jobs similar to ATC?

    Re: What Other Jobs Are Available to a Controller That Are Similar? Just check maybe once a week on MTA.INFO/Careers usually they pop up the announcements. Train dispatcher jobs in MTA are usually hard to get from the general public not impossible but hard. I have a friend who was a veteran...

    Hiring in 2014 and Beyond - Not a Rumor

    I think that they will hold one panel every year and off that panel hire the 1000+ controllers that they need for the year it would make sense this way I think.

    Quick Summary of All the New ATC News?

    Yes Aviation degree can be an advantage and i think it should. What i meant was a Degree in Air Traffic Control probably will have the same weight as someone with a degree in Air Craft operations or Aviation Management.CTI degree as in Air Traffic Control Degree looks like wont provide much...

    Quick Summary of All the New ATC News?

    You forgot to mention that CTI programs were basically kicked in the nuts also and really wont provide any type of hiring benefit against someone with another degree.

    So What Was the Environment Like the First Day of School for CTI Students?

    I give you props in grinding it out and hopefully it works out for you. As of right now there is no new student cti form so there's no way to even be considered a CTI student now. Like someone said before i think it will now be just an air traffic control degree and just that no hiring advantage...

    You know i was going through the BLS GOV website and looked up Air Traffic Controllers and saw the following passage on job prospects.

    Some Help on My CTI with Kent State

    Yes at this point you're better off finishing off the degree. You are already pretty deep into the program and transferring means you will lose a lot of credits and money. Just finish off your degree and then maybe transfer for another bachelors if you have the money of course and start from...

    So What Was the Environment Like the First Day of School for CTI Students?

    Vaughn also offers a CTI recommendation not a degree but most people that are in the management programs are ATC hopefuls so most will probably transfer to another school thats cheaper since it puts them in the same position.

    Any VRA Panels After 15 Jan 2013?

    I doubt that they will have a separate VRA panel. As much as i agree with most that VRAs deserve the best chance in getting picked up if they open up another VRA bid i think it would be giving way to much preference to vets. Now i don't have a problem with getting passed over to a VRA cause i...

    So What Was the Environment Like the First Day of School for CTI Students?

    For me personally it felt weird I came into class and nobody talked to anyone even some students that i knew didn't even say hi. THe professor came in and you could see in his face he was dreading a massive exodus from the class.Overall i would say there were around 13 students far less than the...
