Lets all get the 3rd and be awesome together! Wheres Niagra? She needs to get on this too.
I'm here I'm here! Thanks to Bumkin I went into a panic attack in training class! Okay, not really, but I hope we didn't learn any important info that last half hour b/c I was checked out!I, like mbalunda, attended the PEPC in Chicago and also received this new email. Anyone heard from Rossta? Niagra wants to know if he received one also. She is currently at work so I am her link to the World right now...LOL!
I agree with one small problem: my 31st birthday is coming up soon so I need my TOL ASAP. Then my age is locked. After that, I will chill. And people who fall between the cracks don't take action and are surprised when they are left behind. Taking an active role in the process is important when dealing with the government. My call will be innocent enough. I am not expecting much but making sure I have not been lost in the process is fine.this is a long process as we already know, and calling never accomplishes anything (ok rarely)...just chill out and wait your turn just like all the previous applicants did.
That is exactly along the lines of what I was thinking. I would be flying across the country to do the screening only, as I have my interview this week. I don't know if it will be any quicker.Just someone tell me to decline the PEPC, continue going on the traditional route and save my money...
I just have screening as well. I know flying accross the country to ATL will cost more, but I think taking the PEPC will result in less actual time off from work and thats more important. If I end up getting Tue or Wed, then I will be taking a red eye as well.However, I was thinking that if I were to do the PEPC I could fly the redeye out of SEA and arrive the morning of the screening, and fly out that night. This would save me the cost of the hotel, and I would only have to miss one day of work. Anyone see any issues with flying the red eye the night before the PEPC? I won't have to worry about the interview since that would be done, so it would only be for the other portions...is it worth it?
Good point about time off of work. Has anyone seen any information on how long each part takes for the traditional route? For example, when you go to take your physical the traditional way, will you need to take a full day off or can you do it outside of work hours etc? Any insights?I just have screening as well. I know flying accross the country to ATL will cost more, but I think taking the PEPC will result in less actual time off from work and thats more important. If I end up getting Tue or Wed, then I will be taking a red eye as well.
