It was unexpectedly quick. No emails between getting cleared and getting the list. I’m hoping your wait is so that they can add more facilities to what’s generally being offered. I got the same facilities everyone was posting at that time, and it was doodoo but I got one of two I’d be happy with.
Thank for the info. Im really hoping for Portland Maine.

The lack of communication is unsettling

I only have tower experience outside of AF tech school. if I get sent somewhere with radar, such as PWM (My #1 choice), do i have to go to the acdemy first?

I think it’s up to the ATM, most guys I know went to the their up/down and got rated in the tower portion then RTF before approach training. Which is weird because they were both RADAR only experience. Lol

You’d probably get sent to the facility and get certified in the tower first and go to RTF after that. I only had tower experience and that’s how it worked out for me. But like someone said, it’s up to the ATM but this is typically how it goes

What region, South West? I see people there are 4-5 months wait
I was southwest region. A few weeks after the physical, HR asked me if I even went to the exam because they haven’t received anything. After telling them that I did go, I followed up a week later and HR said they received the results. About two weeks after that I was medically cleared.

This will sound stupid, but whats RTF?
I believe it stands for Radar Training Facility. You go to OKC for a month and a half to learn how to work radar. For people who have been to Basics/Initial in OKC already it's a pass/pass course, not certain if it's pass/fail or not for those hired on a previous-experience bid.

RTF is pass/pass for everyone
