Weird, I talked to HR and they said they got my drug test but they're waiting for my medical still. Fuck me, I knew it was too good to be true. Drug test refresh apparently doesn't equal medically cleared.
Typically your med rep sends the stuff to hr so I would be checking with them daily because they might have it in their inbox. A lot of ppl are probably getting cleared. These things come in waves

Congrats!!!
Did HR contact you or you contacted them?
I got an email this morning from RDC saying I was medically cleared too and that he notified HR.
HR emailed me. It was LM. My original poc HW is on break until January 7th. Thanks!! Might see you the 26th. I wanted enroute so bad.

Why the strong preference for enroute?
I just want to settle in the city I relocate to for 3-5 years (I hate moving). The facilities offer more amenities, pay is better without moving, and I don’t want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere knowing I’m only going to be there for a year. I heard enroute was tougher, I like a challenge. ( idk for sure, all sources come from these forums. 😂)

Hey 2018 bid, I was cleared from tier 2 purgatory last week, medically cleared this morning and got a class date an hour ago.
02-26-2020 Enroute!!
Congrats man. We will grab a beer when you arrive. There are a lot of people coming in soon, so lock in housing asap. Been at kims for 2 weeks and its been great. Helps that my whole class is here so studying is simple.

Quick question, at Kim's do you share the dwelling with others?

1 roommate in a 4 br house and your housing per diem covers everything, plus they have shuttle pick up. This helps you save your food/incidentals. Best thing to do is figure out who your classmates are gonna be and try to get somewhere together. It makes things a lot easier. We had 1 guy staying at anatole and he switched right away so he could be here at kims with us

So you pocket like $30/per day by staying at Kim's?
Yes, everywhere else with the exception of one other place can’t remember who’s the provider. You’re responsible for your own food, meaning you’re spending your food pier diem.

Housing per diem is use it or lose it now, so definitely pick the best place possible. You don’t pocket any extra cash staying at one place over another now.

Several of the housing providers maintain listings in the resources section. You can post in those threads or message them for information.

They take all your housing pier diem, not incidentals.
