I am going to get the prereqs done this upcoming semester, just moved up here. Hopefuly the classes will not be full so that I can get in...they said it typically does not fill all the way.
It's a great school, the instructors that you deal with are great. I think they said between all the staff there is over 200yrs of ATC experience. so they know what they're doing and will push you every day. There are some typos and what not in the quizes, but they are minor and you will understand why once you get to the residency part. you go at breakneck speed the whole time. actually, the online part is boring, but the residency part is great. you won’t be disappointed in going there. the lab is awesome, you won’t want to leave.So what was experience like Battani? Did you like the faculty/student body/environment, etc? I'm taking the online classes right now.
Yeah, I don't have a very typical story...That is positive to hear! I have heard many good things about this school and their instructors. bass geek, yeah it will be fun to hang out and go to this school, already memorizing the sector map! I start the online classes in the spring so I can finish up before in-residency starts in the summer. What is your story? Coming from previous aviation experience? college? high school?
Really? with all 422 things on it? damn you guys are really getting a head start. we only had like 3-4 weeks. the map quiz weeds out a good amount of people. study it hard.Yeah, I've got mine, too. She added it as a module in one of the online classes, but there's no quiz for it. Just something to get a head start on the residence program I guess.
Wow, that rent sounds really nice but I'm in Duluth til AT LEAST this summer. My whole housing situation is kind of up in the air...I have a brother in Minneapolis that I could temporarily stay with if I have to. Right now I'm just trying to make connections and set the wheels in motion. Also, I have a girlfriend that will be coming with, and two dogs. I appreciate the offer, though.Hey Matt, I also wanted to chuck it your way - I have an open room in my apartment if you were looking for a place by chance, it is 5 minutes away from the eden prairie airport where classes are held... it would be 374 per month of you are interested.. very nice and clean and spacious apartment, you have your own b-room as well. let me know if you want to stop by and check it out if you don;t already have a place.
One is a "tuxedo" colored pitbull mix, the one on my avatar pic is a purebred rednose pit. Yeah, I'm not as worried about the living situations as the job situations...I don't want to have to take out a big loan for housing if I don't have to. Worst case scenario I'll end up working at one of the schmitt music stores down there.Haha, yeah, the security and being able to be at home is a big thing! You would think flying, and getting "away" never gets old, but it really does, and fast. This field of ATC is definitly an exciting one! Good to hear you got some living situations in line man! What kind of dogs you got?
I know...I check this frickin forum obsessively and try to glean info from all of the rumors. It seems like some people get picked up RIGHT out of school, and others end up waiting for months on end. So I guess you're right. Eventual placement does seem pretty much guaranteed, though.Good plan! I am somewhat unclear on what the time frame is that we may get picked up after CTI school. I hear its pretty sparatic?
