    No, it takes a lot longer than a couple of months. Try around 6-9 months.

    I took the PAT and written exam for MNPD on May 31, got a combined score of 10, but havent heard anything from them about the BI yet. I read on here somewhere that it seems to take about 2-3 months for you to hear anything about it.... Then, as c-7 said, several more months after that to do all the other stuff (psych test, physical exam, polygraph, etc etc etc)

    I took my PAT and Written at the same time as you. I got a combined score of 9, I missed a score of 10 by one question on the written. If you don't mind Pm me when you hear something from BI.

    I took my test May 31st as well. I was contacted by recruiting dept today and told that letters will be going out to references this week. I was told that the October Academy is set and that the next academy is in March, but once processing is complete, I could be offered a pre-academy position as early as this fall.

    So by my count there are three on this board that are trying for the March 09 class. And one that might be trying for that class. Keep the information flowing, the more you know the better off you are.

    They just sent me an email this morning saying that the surveys are being sent out to my references. Looks like finally there is some movement in my BI.

    I thought you had to be hired within 6 months of applying or you would have to reapply.

    I believe what you are thinking of is. If you are not hired you must wait six months before resubmitting your application.

    bigj8550, are you trying for the March class?
    That's what they do, it's a trailer park.

    Noticed that this thread has slipped to the second page and just wanted to refresh. I am still waiting for my conditional offer. I was told by my BI that I would receive it by E-mail in a day or two, two weeks ago. Go figure. Have not heard anything since. How is everyone else progressing?

    I just had my interview today and my B.I. said he wanted to say it would be 10 days before I got a conditional offer, but also said it would probably be longer; they are running behind.

    Does anyone know how long the MNPD's constant hiring is going to be going on?

    Quick question: I finished all my tests four weeks ago and my BI called a few days ago to make sure she had everything in my file. Assuming my file is before the review board, I guess it's still anybody's guess as to whether I'll make it in? And how long does the review board process usually take before they'll notify you?

    psyQ, CVSA, written, physical agility, etc. Now in my sixth week of waiting for a response, no word other than the BI's phone call last week to ensure everything was in the file. She said I'll hear something very soon, but how soon is very soon? I heard they're running behind...

    I'm going to do the worst thing possible and assume you are going into the Oct. class??? I don't know when that is starting but they have always said they would allow you to give 2 weeks....I sure someone has gone through that and would be able to give better insight.

    gatsby,

    I was wondering if you could tell me about the psych. I don't need to know any detail only how many visits it took? I took my psych with Rochester NY and it took two visits. Is it the same for MNPD?

    Two visits. First is the written then have an interview with the psychologist. The worst part of the process is the CVSA that thing isn't worth jack.
    Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

    JDCOP,

    Two questions, are the two visits on two separate days and what is so bad about the CVSA?
