    I am in Glynco right now. You have a lot of free time. Classes usually start at 0730 and end at 1630. If you are phs you cannot go to the firing range. Instead you are given 2-4 hours a day to study for a cross development course. You can rent a car but it's better to make a friend that has one. They have buses that go into town and surrounding areas for trips. You don't need much cash. I only had a twenty and if I needed more I used the atm in the student center. The vending machines here take credit cards too. As far as class size there are 48 of us but they break it down into two teams.I hope this helps.

    I'm coming up on two years with the BOP as an RN. Glynco was a ball for me. And I love my job. Yes, all nurses go to Glynco. I recommend rent a car because there is alot to do in the area and you have time to explore. Or just hang out at the beach. I'm a pilot so I rented a plane at st simons island and flew over the area with a couple other students. Did the gambling boat cruise. They post things to do for students in the cafeteria. Often at greatly reduced prices for Feds. Again, sittin at the beach don't cost much..and your paid to be there. I staid at "The Tage" with a pool downstairs. We often just sat at the pool and studied. Food was great as well. But after a while you will miss home cooking. By the way, I was a correction officer for 25 yrs before becoming a nurse. This job came pretty easy to me. I just recruited my study buddy from college as the new RN. I'm hoping to work doubles with her and be off more.

    So how was the application process for the BOP?
