Can't tell if you're trolling or if you just don't actually know. Either way. I'm so sorry.

An enroute class will only have center assignments on their graduate list. I'm not sure what you're referencing.

Back in the day when TOL's told you your track (enroute/terminal) ahead of time, I knew many people who applied to both prior exp and OTS bids, and just accepted the OTS TOL if it was enroute. Everyone I know who did that are CPC's at a center now and happy with their decision.
Ive never seen an en route only assignment list if that’s the case. I know people that have gotten assigned “en route” at the schoolhouse, and then we’re either direct hired by one of the crappier centers, or the ARTCC’s were placed on the same list as the terminal facilities and the en route graduates picked their assignment accordingly. I’ve never seen more than 3 centers on one of those lists, that’s what I’m referring to.

That literally doesn't even make sense. Terminal and enroute classes at the Academy are not the same and are not together. There would never be a facility list that has both terminal and enroute slots, it is impossible.

As others have said. Enroute and tower school at the Academy are literally two completely different schools. Different maps, different tests, completely different scenarios. So, when each of these classes graduate, enroute classes get enroute only lists, if there's only 3 in the class then they only get 3 facilities, if there'd 10, then they get 10 facilities. Same with tower, except obviously with terminal facilities. Ya goober

I have officially seen option 3 now, an enroute list from another one of my buddy’s out of the academy lmfao. Which still only has 3 en route facilities on it but I’m seeing each facility has 2-3 slots available. Thank you everyone for the very hostile clarification lmfao. Still doesn’t change the fact I would highly recommend against using the academy as a gateway to the en route environment when there’s much more reliable, profitable, and equally time consuming ways to go that route.

You've proven that your recommendation has no factual statements behind it. You are/were better off by not saying anything. Sorry if you think this is hostile lol

Are you confusing Approach Control as enroute? A tower/approach control is not enroute. Maybe you're thinking up/downs on the academy facility lists are enroute or something.

That's the only thing that I can think of that would make sense of anything you said.

My medical has been with the flight surgeon, for review, for over two weeks now. Not sure if its the norm or a bad sign?

My co-worker just got the Tier 2 email for something medical. The FAA is requesting a copy of ALL his military records.
Why do they need that? and does it mean anything?

I emailed medical to check the status of my clearance and was notified that the flight surgeon is on jury duty this week.
At least yours HAS an excuse, mine has been waiting for review for over 3 weeks now and they just say "delayed due to covid".
