I forgot to answer one of your questions.  For mail I think it was going to be mailed in regular US Mail because it was in a plain off white unmarked envelope.  

I got mine through next day Federal Express.

I think normally they do send it by FEDEX because my friend received it by FEDEX too.  I also think it might be based on how quickly they need you to fill out your papwerwork depending on your PTA start date.  Federal government usually does use FEDEX for everything.  They do include a prepaid FEDEX envelope inside the Accession Package so that you can FEDEX back your fingerprint card at their expense.

iSee,
 
You should look at Foxchase apartments, they have a free shuttle to the metro next to the PTO, the ride is about 10-15 min.  Rent is reasonable, not sure how much 1 bed is but they offer a discount for PTO employees.

I appreciate your suggestion on Foxchase.  
 
I did a search on Foxchase to see its reviews by its tenants. Foxchase has a 41% "Overall Rating". Lots of complaints by the tenants.
 
What do you guys think of the truthfulness of these reviews? Are they real? How else can we go by?

I have two questions about the hiring process.
 
Many people said something about being interviewed at a job fair and that helped get the ball rolling.  The problem is that I am nowhere near a job fair.  I plan to apply through USAJobs, wait a few days, then start calling the supervisors for the units where I feel I'd be a good fit.  Is this the best way for someone on the other side of the country to go about it?
 
Also, I did not read anything about relocation expenses or being invited for a USPTO-sponsored interview.  For the people who live far away, is it possible to get a tentative job offer and then go to DC on my own dime for a combined interview/scouting trip?  That way I could meet my potential supervisor, look at apartments, etc., all at once.  How does it work?
