I haven't heard back yet. I think they do everything in groups, i.e. they select / notify all of the EE's (or whatever area) at once. Since the OF 306 was requested back by the 27th, I think it'll still be a few days. I have a hunch that the start date for the incoming class may be after memorial day so hopefully with 1-month notification we will know by Friday. I am EE, detroit. I have a masters in biomedical engineering. UDM / WSU.

I live in the metro detroit area, west side. 96 is generally the least crazy free-way in the AM so depending on budget there are a lot of good options that way; livonia, dearborn, northville, novi, canton, plymouth. I don't know about the east side but there's royal oak.

I sent my transcripts in the mail last week. I emailed Diane and left a voicemail because I didnt ask when I should be expecting something. No response yet although one of the USA jobs things says "hired" so Im not too worried.

I just received a request to fill out an OF 306 form and return it by 27 April. I suppose this relates to employment eligibility or background check maybe? Hopefully an offer is soon to follow.
