Any new examiners know what the actual hours of the training academy are? I'm working on my Masters and need to plan out my courses to fit with commute when I start in March. Thanks.

That's true about the PTA schedule except that, after 2 months, you go on flex scheduling.  We haven't done that yet, but I understand it means you can come in as late as 10am and leave as early as 2:30... provided you don't miss any lectures and stuff... and the total amount of hrs you put in is 40/week.

Anyone know how they determine what step within a GS level you start at?  Do they simply pick one to match your current salary? thanks

Hey guys, I just accepted my offer from the patent office and will start on Feb 20.
 
Im gonna be taking the Metro from Columbia, MD.  As I understand, the metro runs every 15 min in the morning?  The estimated travel time by metro is 54 minutes.  So I figure if I catch the Green Line at greenbelt metro station at 6am, I would then go to L' Enfant Plaza and connect to the Blue Line to King street and be there by 7am.
 
Does that sound about right for classes that start at 7:30?
