    Well, well. If we had a Forum Bar, you would FINALLY be buying! Welcome to the DEA Family!

    Now, looking back on the waiting, it wasn't THAT bad, was it?

    All the best Kristin. You've been a trooper. DM

    Congrats! Oh boy - now you will gain some insight into this whacky world of law enforcement - and even more so, the whacky world of narcotics. Good luck!

    Thank you everyone.

    I cannot begin to tell you how good this feels. All I have done my life is fight for an aspiration that has beckened to me, through paying for my own education, hardwork, constantly working at it, etc., etc. And I have finally accomplished it. But I now have the task of working hard for the DEA and obtaining as much knowledge, skills, and abilities as I can.

    For anyone out there that is losing hope....DON'T. You never know when your application may be the winner. I had countless rejections before I finally got my oportunity.

    Also, many of you should consider the DEA. Everyone that I have dealt with has been just wonderful. Very methodical, organized, answering any questions that I had, and keeping me informed.

    My EOD date is December 6!!!!!
