Okay, I tested, passed, and have more or less been (unofficially) assured I'm going to be getting an oral with BG, but being that I'm 3 states away, I don't really know much about the community. I'm hoping someone can help me find out about what the department's like, what the community is all about, anything and everything I can get. Personally, the Chief seems like a pretty cool guy, and all of the PO's I talked to seemd thrilled to be working there, but I've spent exactly 3 hours talking to these folks, so I'd like some other perspectives. Any help would greatly be appreciated! Thanks! P.S. What's the I hear about a "group oral board?" Is this a common practice? How's that work? I've personally never heard of such a thing, and the tool shed I was talking to didn't go into it as much as I would've liked, so any info anyone can provide me on THAT would be appreciated, too!
