Let me know how that works out. Remember the person's name that does it for you if it happens so everyone can call him/her from now on for arbitrary swaps.
I'm serious, I'm going to ask. It cant hurt and the worst they can tell me is no, and then ill just say "ok no problem" But ill let you know how it works either way.

Questions for anyone with answers!

1. I'm semi familiar with the Longmont area, and am actually flying out this weekend to preemptively apt hunt - suggestions? I love Boulder but figure it'll be cheaper and more convenient to do my first year or so in Longmont. Thoughts?

2. This may have been answered else wear on SM but I'm not finding a satisfactory answer, what do we make pay wise upon graduating the academy? Maybe this is answered on your FOL but I've yet to receive one of those bad boys. I'm curious so I can budget what I can afford in rent etc etc.

Thanks for the input!!

Ive been avoiding SM like the plague but just logged in after a 3 month reprieve because I Just got off 20 minute phone call with RJ. Not a lot to report. Colorado in general and ZDV are well staffed at the moment which is slowing down ZDV class dates. Slight possibility of a redirect. Still trying to get everyone in by the end of the FY but some might spill over into next FY. Check back in in a couple months.

I talked to RJ a few days ago and she's putting a fire under the security people in Renton and the archive people in STL to get all that stuff done so I can get a class in May before my medical expires in June

I wouldn't even accept a redirect to another Center. My life is set in Colorado and my family can't pick up and move. I hope that doesn't happen.

Has anyone heard recently that they still plan to get all TOL holders at the academy by the end of June? My drug test will expire July 7th and I don't think they'd want to pay for a 3rd one. I see people getting class dates for as far out as May 23rd. People seem to be getting FOLs 5-7 weeks in advance for people who got their TOLs much later than all of us, so I'm figuring we'll all hear in the next month or so, or at the very latest we'd all hear by Memorial Day, for the June 27th class. But I'm getting really worried about a redirect now after previous comments.

She told me that CO is pretty full...I am terminal but she said its across the board tower and radar/enroute. I was supposed to be going to PUB but am now being redirected to another terminal facility in CO or possibly something in WA. My clearances expire in Jul, hoping to hear something soon.

1, Boulder isnt all that, in fact it is quite a pain in the ass. Insanely high taxes, rent/property taxes, higher gas prices, more bicyclists than should even be in existence, etc. As for places to live, there are a ton of apartments all over Longmont. The southwest side has Legacy which looks nice, Grandview Meadows (which is a lousy place to live, take my word for it), and a few other apartments but being 'closer to Boulder' is generally more expensive. I paid about 1100/mo for a one bed with a garage in SW Longmont. On the East side near County Line Rd between 9th and 17th there are some really nice looking places but I dont know what they go for, PM me and I can get the names if you want on my drive by.

2. I cant quote what yours will be but living in Boulder County (SW Longmont), 5% to TSP and paying insurance on myself (med/dental/vision), my take home ranged from 1250-1350 every two weeks (creepy thinking back on that now). This is roughly what you will be bringing in until you get to D1. Each of the raises amounted to roughly 525 per check (take home) added to that amount.

Hope that helps
