Thanks for the input guys. Lucky for me, my wife and kid can stay at my parents if needed. I guess I'm already counting on graduating considering I'm the type of person to just not accept failure, but then again this is a total career change for me. I'm former military, so the drive to succeed without failure is still in me.
I am taking a rough $15k cut in yearly pay for the first year. Which sucks but hopefully the cost of living at my first assignment will be much lower than my current city of Nashville.
If I were you I'd stay at IB. Apparently you can save $900 per month if you stay there because they don't take your whole per diem. Some people like IB and many don't. I think I could live in any place for a few months especially if I'm being paid $900 per month to do so.

IB and Kim's seem to be the main 2 from all I've read. Sounds like you can save some good money at either if you really wanted to.

Boy the FAA about gave me a heart attack.. had an email from the Patriots email address but it was just notifying me that one of their ATSS positions was closed due to an error.

Hoping the next email is better news 😂

Supposedly , I guess... look at the bold italicized underlined words. That doesn’t mean it was a firm deadline

Might just be me, but seems pretty obvious that they're done with TOLs for this bid...
I actually have a contact who is an instructor at the academy. Who told me timing is different for everyone and not to write off TOLs yet especially with the shut down. They said there is a person from who received a TOL in 2017 but is STILL waiting on a Medical security clearance.. who knows.
