January 18
February 15, 22
March 21, 22
April 25, 26
May 24, 31
June 27
July 18, 19, 20
August 15, 16, 17

Has anyone requested for a specific date before? I want to get swore in on February for personal reasons, and was thinking of applying after the December 8th deadline for a chance of getting considered for Feb.

When I sent in my entire packet I wrote a cover letter asking to please expedite but it still took its normal course. I was complete the beginning of July and my swearing in date is November 16. But maybe other people have had better luck and turnaround time.

I'd advise against waiting to submit your materials because the process takes a while. I submitted my materials in late January/early February and was given a September date. I did successfully move my date from September to August but I had a reason for doing so. I would imagine they would be amenable to giving you a later date but your materials have to be complete first.

I took the February UBE in NJ and transferred my score to NY. The character and fitness process is the same when you transfer. I was shocked at how long it took becquse I was complete in early July and got my confirmation towards the end of August with a November 16 date. I think that I was just unlucky with the wait.

Yes 3rd. If there is anything you can do to expedite the signatures, I'd work on it.
