Jeff told us to wear the button down shirt also people from National Geographic where coming with a film crew. Not much else tho. We can always say we know MO!

P.S. Mikey your doing a great service with this list, thanks.
I don't think your right about the amount of room available for the August class, I think you definately have a shot. They are only in the low 400's, and there is no way they pulled 100 names from the list already.

They went to the low 300's to get the first 100 guys, so they should at least get into the low 600's for the August class, and hopefully they will reach your number...good luck.

I called HR before to talk to them about whether or not I would be called for August and the guy said probably not. My number is 549. I am hoping maybe he was wrong but I guess we will see.

Guys please , please don't jump to conclussions... just be patient and see what the week brings... The last time they called all week , and its only tuesday so just try to relax and be patient !!! you guys all have great list #'s so if you do not make this class we all know that you'll make the next one when that time comes... As much as it may sound screwed up , thats how it is.. i felt the same way you guys did when Salsan and others made the first class and i just missed it .. lol

Remember guys we even had guys drop from this class after they arrived so be patient(LOL) but they may even call to make up what they lost in this class? Waiting sucks but they say the job is worth it, hang in there.

so there are no repercussions for taking out cones or smashing into obstacles or any other possible ways of messing things up?....i might of heard otherwise,but i figure you guys there would know now firsthand what the deal is.

They say since we came on after the fiscal calendar date of 7-1-08 (we came on 7-7-08) that we won't be able to get any vacation for the remainder of the year. They say we get a full 18 days or something like that starting in January even though we haven't accrued it yet.
