    I think it's awesome that he's already worried about his packing list...

    Few things... Only some people get a packing list, so hopefully you're one of the lucky ones. Second, sometimes, the underwear is worn on your head, so try a few runs out like that to get used to it. Lastly, DEFINITELY post your status updates here to keep us posted. Good luck!

    I wouldnt worry about the gear list so.much. If you can't find the exact items on the list just try and get a close substitute it will be fine. Now listen closely, here's the catch to make it kosher, When your d.i. who will obviously see you had a little trouble with their list and will be quite concerned about you and comes to gently express their concern for you, all you have to do is just politely tell them your all set bc you got all your instructions in advance from masscops. believe me You'll be gtg.:)

    Is anyone able to shed any light on what the background investigation meeting/interview looks like? I'm just trying to get a feel for what to expect.

    Know the coverage of the Troops, know the divisions, be able to name the units of MSP. And make sure you know who the Colonel is. It's an interview with scripted questions. The background is only an issue if they find things you didn't mention or don't have legitimate reasons or explanations for any negative things they find.

    Anyone have any Intel on when the list might be compiled? I tried to go back through previous threads to see when the list came out based on the Academy start date. Most likely waiting for budget approval?

    Most of the 83rd has already completed the backgrounds. Do you think that they are selecting the 83rd candidates off the new test... Because that's not happening.

    I'm in the group who just completed the background investigations, I'm trying to find out around what point does the appointment list get made for the ticket to the happiest place on earth

    Orientation for the 81st that started 12/2/2013 was in October. Orientation for the 82nd that started 10/19/2015 was in September. If you get a golden ticket, you probably won't know about it until a month / month and a half prior to the anticipated start date...

    Appreciate the info. I had assumed it would be something like that. From what I'm hearing August is the preferred start, although I've been told to plan on October. Having to check the website everyday from now until September will become tiresome. Not a bad problem to have I guess. Thanks again.

    83rd RTT website updated. Good luck to all - looks like background checks are about to kick in to high gear.

    I'm sorry, I was a victim of auto correct.

    Initially, a number of candidates were invited to go the medical appointments. There were a number of candidates who did not receive an appointment date.

    I was just curious if anyone knew how it was looking for the candidates who didn't get a medical appointment the first time.

    Thank You

    Helpful hint: Proofread before you submit. Will come in handy if you become a "chosen one".

    Check the website . . .it was recently updated and so was the list. If your number no longer appears, you are no longer being considered.

    Website updated . . .dates in July for Orientation and uniform fittings were provided. Also the second wave of candidates are no longer in contention (score of 97.75 or lower). Best of luck to those who are still in the running for the 100 to 175 spots.

    That was a pretty drastic cut down in estimated class size! Let's hope it's on the top end for everyone's sake
