    Keep the head up mate, still tomorrow.

    Remember the last batch went out and I never got a call until the following Thursday, that was a LONG ass day Friday afternoon, was for throwing the rope up on Friday and come Monday had resigned myself to this intake.

    Fingers crossed for you, I think you WILL get the call this batch!


  • Registered Users Posts: 184 ✭✭ Midgetgem84


    Cheers you lot! Your a top bunch ;-)

    And KevBo, I mind that Friday well!! Lol. I'm nowhere near as stressed - not even close thankfully - but just still how should I put it....

    ...unsettled lol

    Well done AA. Passed medical this week so in theory good to go, likely the smt may mean I just miss out this round, have a score in 80s so fingers crossed it turns round in time!

    Always nice sharing good news but genuine thanks to folk for letting us know when the calls go out, would be utterly torturous otherwise!

    Congrats again AA, appreciate the updates people. I'm second batch, medical last week and will also spend tomorrow feeling a bit unsettled! Fingers crossed there's more calls for boardies (however as mop says you should start a new thread, waiting people have hijacked this one lol

    They'll give you the induction weekend, usually 2 weeks away and the actual start dat, 5 weeks approx from the call.

    Congratulations to all those who got the call!

    Can any that did advise if they also email you / send a letter? I ask as I'm off out of the country for a couple of weeks and won't be able to take calls.

    Many thanks

    You get an induction pack and must also attend an induction weekend 1-2 weeks after the call, it is a MUST and if you do not attend you can't enter the student officer training program. You can always defer your place until the next batch of calls... Given that there will be a next batch!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27 ✭✭✭ jaylu


    So if I miss the call then when I get home there'll be an induction pack? Surely they don't send this out without speaking with you


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 .S.


    I was under the impression they'd leave a voicemail


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27 ✭✭✭ jaylu


    I really hope so, would hate to miss out over a missed call!? that would be gutting


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 .S.


    Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I'm also hoping that's the case as my signal is poor at work

    Yes I'm pretty certain others have said they leave a voicemail if you miss them so you can call them back

    If you miss the call they usually leave a voice mail, sorry should of said that. It is not unheard of for them to send out the induction pack anyway.

    You mentioned your out of the country for a few weeks? If they called today you'd need an induction next weekend or the one after, are you able?

    You have a reply slip to send back confirming your taking up the position within a certain amount of time BEFORE the induction weekend.

    Yea well I'm really anticipating the call in the next batch at the very soonest, which is when I'm away, but I will be back shortly after (the predicted) date. That's IF the call even comes.

    Am I right in thinking you are around the 72 mark? Depends how many are above you still waiting on calls that have vetting cleared. You may get this time or you may not!

    Haha yeah its hard to plan around the dates you think a call might or might not be coming. Best to do what you are and just get on with your life.

    If a call comes say Thursday and your back in the country Monday you can always ring them up and say you will accept a place, they will send the induction pack out or you could drive up and collect it. I know a few people have done that. Don't stress just yet.... waiting game!
