I see. Yeah I don't know where I got that many people quit. Must be my imagination. In terms of background, I'm sure I'm qualified in that regard since I have a Top Secret clearance. In any case, I'm pretty sure I will take this opportunity and apply. Although I won't be in the country when I do, so I hope things work out.
My last question is:
So the academy is 27 weeks long. I live in Sacramento/Elk Grove. Do I have to live at the Academy the whole 27 weeks?
