So the video says they are especially targeting those 24 and under. What about those of us who are "base to final" for 30? I say this because I've already submitted my application and I'm currently waiting to see if I make it to the referral list.

Tell me this is for real...
In the early 90's I was enrolled and accepted to an ATC school (In Minnesota if I remember correctly) but the waiting list was so long for the actual ATC position that it wasnt worth the wait risk. I chose A&P school instead. Too bad this wasnt available 15 years ago!

Quoting ShyFlyer (Reply 3): What about those of us who are "base to final" for 30?
I couldn't agree more!
If they are willing to hire "kids" right out of high school, what's wrong with those of us that are 30-35 who have had "real" job and life experience? And I may get slammed for this, but those in their early 30's are usually more mature than 18-24 year olds.
