That said, has anybody received class dates that got placed in the hiring pool during the AK hiring event Apr 28-30?
No one I know from that group has heard anything yet

Yes, since that came out, I've heard that as well. We shall see.

That is great to hear! Is there any method to the madness of figuring out who they determine gets which class? Also, how much notice do they typically give folks for going to class?

You're stacked on a list (pool). About two weeks prior to 30 Jun they will take their top 24. Next class scheduled tentatively around 21 July.

Previous posts have indicated that the order in which poolies are stacked is where the "recommended" vs. "highly recommended" distinction comes into play. If so, I assume then that it's conceivable for HR's to be passed over for R's for a certain class date.

Can anyone confirm that's how the system works?

Does the pool sort like the EICAS, priority group then chronological?

The old system gave everyone a numerical score, and the pool was re-stacked following every interview group. Thus, a lower-scoring applicant could be passed over many, many times. (The longest I knew about personally was 1.5 years until getting a call - he declined.)

The new system is HR, R and DNR. Supposedly the pool is shallow and with the large classes lately, it would appear that you might not have to wait more than a class or two. That's how they tell us it works, anyway.

They have the HR, R, and DNR List. But I know guys who were R that were in class before HRs (same interview Group). No one really knows how class dates are assigined.
