does this refer to the number of people they're going to pick up in panels? or the number of people they're actually going to send off to OKC/facilities?

I believe these numbers are for people budgeted for OKC rather than those being offered a TOL.

I am new to this, and maybe it's just me, but do those numbers seem kind of low? Or are those around the normal numbers of years past?

FAA hired 824 total in 2011, and estimated it woul hire 981 by the end of 2012, so no these numbers are not low. From the CWP.

Texas on my mind
If the number for enroute is to be believed that means 28 people for each center (including Hawaii) if all of the spots are allocated equally between the centers (which of course is not how they will be allocated).

Right, big centers with high need like ZDC/ZAU/ZNY will probably see in the 40s. Others will see less than 20.

That may actually not be the case, ZOA has been getting a lot of the spots in FY12. They are probably getting close to the limit of trainees they can handle.
And they are sending them back to OKC just as fast as they are getting them.....there are 7 there now, and 7 more on the way waiting for a class date for tower option, ZOA is still critical staffed facility.

I've been asking for a redirect to ZOA and they told me they they have filled all of their slots. Is HR lying to me?

lol you don't want a re-direct to ZOA..... are they lying, prob not, maybe they used all the new hire slots for 2012, but that doesn't mean they wont get 50 more in FY 2013. See even if someone washes out at OKC, they still count as one of the X amount of new hires each facility gets each year. And the people that do make it to ZOA are washing out at 80-90 percent, dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

Hey Shaba what can I do to make sure that not one of those 10-20% that wash out of ZOA. And please dont say that I should try and go somewhere else.

They still sending you to SCT? That's where I want to go but I'm going to a Lvl 6 tower instead. I'd rather not go to a slow facility. -VRA OCT '10 TOL
