    I have not been contacted after turning in my packet as well....I don't know if that is a good sign or just a matter of having patients...It would nice to receive a notice of rejection if I am not qualified...but Ill just keep my hopes up and wait it out.

    If your having patients, then you need to be in a hospital. You need to have patience since your more than likely starting the BI phase.

    Got an email today confirming I passed the Psych interview and to come in for fingerprinting on Wednesday. Still no info on the medical. Hopefully this is promising.

    I went for fingerprinting and was told that the background was not finished. They mentioned that someone would be sent to my moms house to talk to her. But no specific mention about coming here to my dads house. I moved in with my dad to save money while attending the academy so I don't really know my neighbors at all. I hope this doesn't count against me. Any information on these home visits would be great. It sounds pretty intimidating to be honest, since I have no idea what to expect. I did get the feeling that things were moving along and that I may be close to the end. I've made it this far and don't want to blow it.

    Unless you or your father stuck out with the neighbors, they probably wont say anything negative.

    [QUOTE=Yeame2;2532942]"Possible January Academy"


    I hope this is the case. I have been going through the hiring process since May 2009 For Boston. I have completed every step so far, my last step was my BI and that was done in June 2010.

    My investigator called me in August and told me something might come up in October. Now I came accross this thread and I know this isnt for Boston, but I am hoping, my hold up is that they are trying to send everyone together. Anyone that has any insight on this please advise.

    I have had lots of patience and have waited a long time, I have heard lots of great things about the department, and really hope to get on.

    Good Luck to all does folks going through the process now.

    Yeah everything is finished for me also. I'm wondering what will happen with all of us who do not need to attend an academy. Also, DEEDEE....have you had a home visit by the investigators yet?

    I would love to work in the Metro station (DC)

    What are the residency requirements? I have family in MD and would commute in.
    Check Amtrak.com.

    Amtrak police DO NOT police the metro station as that is under the jurisdiction of the WMATA police/

    No residency requirement and you can ride both Amtrak and MARC for free. Just realize Amtrak only has 2 stops between Baltimore and DC and that very few trains stop at Aberdeen.

    If Philly has done their budget and allocations have been made for hiring, then December if everything is done.

    Interesting....on the bright side December is right around the corner. Does being certified and not needing to attend the academy play a role? Only reason I ask is that I was told mid way through the process that having PTC cert is a plus since it saves money on training up front. Or do you think that they will do all the hires at the same time? To my knowledge there are 5 certified applicants out of the 15.

    More than likely being certified means they can put you through about 3-4 weeks of training vs 14 weeks (unless the app lives in NYS then its 24-28 weeks). More than likely they will bring all the people who are being hired on board at once.

    Selections are made in NY but Philly runs the purse strings since the Capt reports to the Inspector in Philly.
