I’ve been in the same spot with the BI for the past month. I know some people that are 18-3 are going to training in dec - March. I’m guessing they probably won’t make another class until March.

I got my official final offer letter yesterday. I begin at my port on November 18th. Training is from Dec 3-March 18th or something like that. Not 100% sure but I believe our training is back to back with another group so they could very well have another class beginning in January. Again, I'm not 100% on that but when I first got called my training was initially said to be earlier but since I had to think about it for a day I called back later and that class was full. I think that class started in November.

I initially wasn't keen on moving to Michigan but we are really excited now. My Fiance actually found a job right after I did and he begins his job on the 1st. We're moving next week :)

Received the Phone call this evening! I was offered many locations including several in California, Arizona, Washington State, Alaska, South Dakota, Chicago and Detroit. I choose Detroit seeing as it’s only 4 hours from where I’m originally from in Ohio, plus I have some family in that area as well. I report to my location on March 3rd for two weeks and then training is March 18th - June 25th. I’m pretty excited and can’t wait!

Dang. That means 19-1 won't probably see movement for an entire year the way things look.

19-1 here.
I applied July 2019.
43% completed.
I got notification that my BI will start, haven’t heard from the investigator yet. Looks like it will take some time.

Still at 57% looks like the BI has halted a bit. Just curious how many of you really enjoy the ag specialist position now that you started working. I’m 29 and been teaching hs science for 7 years and since it’s all I know and have already invested in education. I’m just curious because I’m nervous about making such a drastic career change.

18-2 and just got my offer for St.Louis today! I cannot believe it as this is my third offer and I’m finally getting my location! I start March 3rd. Does anyone have advice with a newborn? My baby girl will only be two months and I plan on feeding her(vs formula) so I’m not sure what to do? Mothers, please help me out!
