I'm not laughing at your downsouthdep, but I don't even pay attention when people bring this topic up. It's nothing but rumors that contradict one another.
I'm not sure why but from what I've been told and what I've experienced in the past, it is like that every year. Troopers and admins deny deny deny that there will be a class for the next 5 years then all of a sudden they have one. I'm not sure why it's so secretive but they keep a tight lid on it then everyone out there pretends like THEY have the "inside info" on the next class.
Everyone says oh my buddy, he's a trooper, he said such n such, then another person with a "trooper buddy" says the opposite blah blah blah (as if troopers on patrol are in the inside loop with the class planning and legislation, budgeting etc).
Last I heard, some one told me that the state of MS just sold a jet to purchase 75 MHP vehicles for the next class but it was contradicted by a bunch of other BS rumors that there wont be a class till 2014.
One month before class 60 was announced, an MHP recruiter told me face to face (at a JOB FAIR) that it would be two years minimum before class 60 would be opened up.
I guess all you can do is sit and wait for the official word. Nobody seems to know what they're talking about.

Right, I understand all that VERY well from my experience also. However, I haven't heard anything since the last class graduated and just wanted to know if anyone has heard ANYTHING, even if it's just a rumor.
