Congrats! Was that the first date offered or did you push back?
It was the first date offered. I will have to wait for my FOL now but I know by looking at the class dates it’s for TRACON. I’m in NY so I was expecting it. The next class date for that is 6/22 so I’m just gonna go for it.

Just a general question, can you eventually switch to a tower after working in TRACON? Or do you stay where your placed for the entirety of your career?

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.

Wow that's fast...I'm assuming you didn't have any hiccups along the way? lol
Nope, none! I’ve seen as fast as getting a class date two weeks after completing their medical though. Apparently this bid has been monumental in terms of clearances times. No complaints from me haha

From background check to completing medical and getting a class date was under a month for me. I guess if there are no major issues with credit/background/medical stuff its pretty quick!

Edit: May have been actually exactly 1 month lol

Any update on how long everyone is waiting to hear from the medical email? I've been waiting for around 2 weeks and haven't heard from them. I read that people were waiting a while longer than that

Got mine on day 22. Scheduled for 4/9, and got the medexpress/drug test email this morning and DT is scheduled for 4/10.
