Ha so true........stupidity at its finest!!

Hello to all-

I'm applying to 9E (notice my l33t speak proving I am not a n00b) even though according to this thread:

1. 9E sucks
2. 9E rocks
3. 9E is a great place if you want to "flow" to AA, WN, UA, basically anywhere except DL
4. I will totally get to DL if I just stay here for 4 years
5. I'll be stuck in NYC for the next 30 years and I should just commit a violent crime in Manhattan so I can get a room at Rikers instead of paying for a crash pad
6. I'll be awarded ATL right out of training
7. Don't even think about getting ATL out of training. You're going to NYC. See above regarding Rikers.
8. I'll be told to wear a hat even though I don't have to wear a hat, but not wearing a hat may influence getting two "no's" at DL vs being told to "come see us in 12 months"
9. There's a button in the 200 that will kill rampers when they connect ground power unless I push it in at the right time. Or don't push it in. Or something. It's one of the two.

So, with all that being said, I have a couple of questions:

Assuming I get an offer and accept it, where is the CTP course held?
If I'm living in Huntsville, AL is it better to drive 3 hours to ATL or fly on one of the 8 DL flights each day?

Thanks in advance.

Follow up questions (super serious, totally not sarcastic, literally no one has voiced an opinion about this stuff anywhere on the forum):

Which regional is the best?
What headset should I buy?
If I live in Anchorage, can I commute to work at Piedmont?
Can you recommend a good suitcase?
Did you know that 175 time is basically the same as 737/Bus time!?!?
Are Heelys approved as footwear while on duty?

Close the thread, nothing more to add!

CTP is at CAE DFW. For HSV, the early flights look decently full at a cursory glance. I know folks who stomach the 3 hour drive as lineholders, so it comes down to your personal preference. When senior enough you can bid five day trips and get it down to three round trips per month. It's a decent drive to commit to, but you'll always have a seat home.

Best post on thread by a metaphorical head and shoulders distance.

Endeavor is going to be lucky to have you. I don't think the above post can be topped. Im officially retired. There's nothing left to see here.

You've given me hope for the future young man. Enjoy endeavor.

Now that is some good thinking. You can always just apologize at your interview with Delta or united and say you're sorry and learned your lesson. But remember you have to be a terrible stick with no personality to get that treatment.

You know what I've found from reading various forums? People who are happy don't generally go on the internet to voice their happiness. Miserable people, however, do.

Look around this forums enough, and you'll find that every airline is the worst. Terrible conditions, awful bosses, scheduling is stupid, etc... There is not, apparently, a single good airline out there.

I just try to sift through the poo and gain whatever helpful nuggets I can.

Well scheduling is stupid, but I'm generally happy here. Pilots that haven't been here too long and actively trying to leave for career progression are happy. Pilots that have been here for years and can't get out are bitter. Probably a reason as to why they haven't been able to leave. In addition to that, all of the folks I know that are "lifers" are fairly happy too.

It's not all negative. Sometimes the information provided on here is extremely helpful. I know I've helped many new hires find crashpads. Some of the negative crap needs to be advertised. Like how long a DTW or MSP 900 CA will be on reserve.
