Just out of curiosity how long does it usually take from the time you fill out the application until you find out whether you are approved to attend the school. My recruiter is working on the file now. I've spent the last 3 years having to hold off on trucking b/c of some issues with my house but now that it's finally all settled I am finally ready to go for it. Just sent in another application to FFE. I was approved last year but don't remember the length of time it took to find out I was good to go.. I'm hoping to get rolling within the next few weeks.....mid Oct at the latest. Going to their 11 day refresher in Lancaster TX.

Like...a day. At most. I think it's a fairly quick process.

Like Seppo says. I called a recruiter (Swift) on Thursday, sent in my docs, on Friday he called, I got a start date for the next Monday. (That was second week of December, so the class was small.)
