Hey everyone, it looks like I am going to this class as well. I did my drug refresh on wednesday and should get my FOL shortly! I can't wait! I am staying at Isola Bella.

I am really up in the air about the place I want to stay, I hear that IB is not the best place on the map, but that a lot of people pick it as other classmates are there. I am looking at the Candelwood.

Suppose to be attending this class as well and then headed to ZJX. Hope to get FOL in hand this week. Still looking at places to stay, how quickly do I need to secure a place if I stay at IB or Candlewood ? Am I running out of time or are they usually available anytime

At the risk of sounding like a recruiter, I'm sure Michael could get you in Bella.

Hello. I just received an email today that I was cleared to go to class. I think my class date is still 2/18, but it could be pushed back. I will also be going to ZOA. Any advice on where to stay? I'm thinking Isola Bella (can't pass up free food lol) And should I contact them ASAP? Thanks!

OKC
the cheapest liveable place sounds good to me.
Depends on your living situation.

I have minimal expenses at home so I can pay more out of pocket up front.

Look on craigslist... housing is affordable in OKC.

I found a 1 bedroom for 520$ a month. I can fit everything but a couch and tv in my car so that is all I will need to buy in OKC.

Somone who has expenses at home and has not saved up might want to use the Gov credit card somewhere.

Where are you headed?

I was pleasantly surprised to find that my estimated class date of Mar. 28 turned out to be wrong. Looks like I'll be heading to OKC for this class with the rest of you. I got my drug refresh done last Thursday and should receive my FOL this week. Is this wait over yet? I'll be heading to ZOA redirected from ZSE.
Where are you coming from? I live in Seattle and plan to drive to OKC.

I live in Utah right now. I'll be driving down there with my family. I am married and have a four year old and a six year old. Right now I am planning on staying at Kim's Place. I'm still waiting for my official FOL before I make any firm plans though.
