Wow those 6 weeks just flew lol

Good luck to everyone. I decided not to go to the open house that led to this phase. Decided to stay at NYCT subways.

Good job today steve and others, probably the most nervous I've been after taking an exam...that wait was like an eternity lol. I really feel bad for the 3 that didn't make it, everyone really put in the time and work in our class....medical#2 then phase 2, I'm ready, I absolutely know phase 2 will probably be exponentially harder, but I know we are ready as a class to tackle it....

Likewise @Lirrdream It was quite the journey and it’s just beginning.  Congrats again to all that passed!  Those waiting on a call, we were told that they will be planning out the future classes soon.  I’m guessing most likely beginning of next year.  Patience is key, as it has been said before, and then making the most of the time when you get the call.

Can you tell me if it is worth studying the Phase 1 Quizlet info? I understand it will be different like it was for S&D.

Always go with what is given directly to you.  Things can change from one class to the next.  Don’t rush it, enjoy the time you have now.  😬

Got the call for phase 2 today.  So excited!!  We begin next Wednesday.  I can’t believe we are here.  It feels so good.

Tell me about it, that background process was absolutely brutal, very very in depth and thorough...that part gave me more anxiety than phase one did, truthfully.....but feels excellent to be moving on to phase two,  can't believe I'll actually be operating trains sometime in the near future...😁🚉

It’s truly exciting to think of actually operating trains.  I’m so stoked.
