Kind of, the academy list gets chosen from this with some other elements taken into account. It gives you a rough idea of what to expect but isnt too reliable from what will actually be on an academy list. You can expect a mix of the first 50 or so that are blank.
what about prior exp bid people? still looking at the top 20-30 or so

That is something completely different from this list I believe, you'll most likely just have to let it gel.
so you are saying that the terminal list that I am seeing is nothing I should pay attention too ?

Take foogys advice. I poured over all of that when I was waiting and my list compared to what I thought was completely different.

Yeah, so a prior experience selection happened between us and the last terminal class so they just had their way with the list. We got a prelim list about a month ago when we finished basics, and none of those facilities ended up on our real list lol. Hoping I place top in class so I can snag Elmira, NY. Half of the class is from the NY tri-state area. I am not from the area, but I track cars and it's only about 20 miles from Watkins Glen. The fastest cert facility is Dayton, but I lived in Ohio for the last 10 years and don't want to ever go back lol.

Elmira's a nice area, and you can live very comfortably on a CPC salary there. I grew up there so PM if you have any questions. However they're losing their approach control soon which will make them a level 4 at best, so if up/down is important to you maybe consider MDT.

Funnily enough no one ended up going to any of those OCONUS facilities.

I have a big turbo VW Golf right now, plan to move into a Shelby FP350S once I get into that CPC pay band. A friend of a friend had one and it's pretty gnarly.

We received no OCONUS options due to the prior experience bid. Bummer, but it happens.

I figured we'd get a crappy list after my buddies who were contract controllers said they basically got to pick their facility at will lol. Planning to certify and GTFO. Looking for OCONUS or somewhere in the KY/TN area.

Don't worry, they'll cpc then bid a facility higher than yours and be out within 6months of certifying 🤣
You kid, but we're told this is likely what will happen.

If that's your plan I'd try to go to DAY. My buddy was ots, went their and certified in 4 months and err'd out and was at his new facility less than a year later. Meanwhile everyone else from our class is still at their 1st facility or still training. ELM might not be a bad #2. They push people through training pretty quick over there and it's pretty much been a revolving door. Worst case is that consolidation will happen in 2 years (hopefully) and they'll get a bunch of releases at once and hope you don't draw the short straw
