    Virginia State Police 119th

    118th is getting ready to kick off soon

    12/3 Was apparently the first round of testing of the new set of dates for the 119th for 11/2012.

    Who was at 12/3 Phase I and who's got their paperwork in for future test dates?

    I'm sure there will be carry over for the guys/gals they couldn't finish out for the 118th. Said they expected to have a pool of approx 1600 applicants.

    Got a packet in the mail today saying I was invited. Being all the way in NY, I'll have to see what the finances are like come January (testing starts 1/28). Hopefully can attend though.

    2 guys showed up Sat in regular street clothes
    Hope they didn't have a long drive home (This is a post from thread 118)

    Read your letter and do exactly as it states, or you'll have a long drive home.

    Heard a RUMOR the 119th will not happen as there will be a hiring freeze after the 118th. Not sure what to think.

    Freezing of that school was NOT listed as a proposed budget reduction measure, for whatever thats worth.

    Yeah but I think only the 118th was actually funded the last time around correct? Either way I wouldn't worry about it. Do the testing, get it out of the way and start the waiting game

    I was in testing for the 117th ..passed everything and told to reapply AFTER Jan 8th which was after my Phase 1 testing day for that class. Reason I wasn't accepted I was told due to so many applications from many more qualified after spending the time and money thru all those 3 phases. SO.... I'm going to reapply once more come Jan9th and see what happens - at least this time I know what to expect and it should be a little easier but guys, don't get you're hopes up for just very reason!

    ran into that plenty of times throughout this experience, especially when you have an applicant pool as large as the ones for state agencies. I expect to pass everything but don't plan on actually getting selected, these things happen

    Yeah, I'm definitely not counting my chickens before they hatch. Just ready to finally get that letter once and for all and know one way or the other. I've gotten rejected twice already so this isn;t my first rodeo. Hopefully it's my last one!

    I've ran the gauntlet through these processes of being optimistic to pessimistic and currently realistic, it is what it is I just go through the motions nowadays. I've been hired twice so far but havnt made the cut for a whole bunch, it's all part of the game just shred the rejection letters and move along.
