I think they have to have a pretty good reason not to hire prior experience folks (failure to meet requirements). The new FAA extension makes it so they have to give preferential hiring to experienced folks. Only after giving preference to them are they allowed to look at other sources.

I thought it was odd that so many people were being told that they were not selected - maybe someone complained about it, so they sent more TOLs, no clue though.

Yeah, I was gonna say, doesn't the law they passed say that prior experience get preferential treatment before anyone else? Would make zero sense why someone would get denied if they're qualified. I have a friend who is qualified and hasn't received one either so who knows.

has anyone called HR after being denied and then got a TOL to see what they are saying?

No news should be good news, next news should be FOL correct? Wait it out a little bit then give HR Rep a cal in a couple weeks to make sure they received everything and see where you stand.
No I still have to do medical. Then hopefully if it goes well FOL

how long after you send the medical people an email does it take for them to respond and assign you a doctor?

Anyone have issues sending their TOL forms in? I saved as PDF and careers said they couldn't print them because they had to "save the file first."

I know during the process that they told me not to use any apple products when sending / making pdfs as they can't open them for some reason - seemed odd, but maybe it's justified

Yeah, the email said not to use a phone to send them in. I used an app called Genius Scan to turn them into PDF's, email to myself then forward to HR. She received them with no issues. I would suggest trying that if you continue having problems.
