Just found my email in my spam box. I was wondering how many of us there are. I am not able to apply for the current experienced bid, but will be on the lookout for the March one. Did you apply for this one?i got an email telling me I qualified to apply under the age waiver, did anyone else? Not sure how to answer the 2 age questions though. Anyone know who is hiring since you can't pick states this time? Thanks.
I did, first applied in the August 2012 CTI bid that was thrown out after the whole sequestration mess. I'm real excited but apprehensive to still have to get past this new Bio-Q, obviously I failed the Feb 2014 one. I really want this to happen this time...Did you apply to a bid before 2013 , mgcb? I'm assuming that email is your ticket to being eligible to apply?

Reading comprehension is a key requirement in order to become an ATC'er. BTW, the link you posted was from last year.
