I am currently in the process of completing the requirements to get started at ATP. I have a loan application in place that is under review that I should hear back on some time this week. I also have an appointment scheduled to do my First class medical exam on December 28th.
At what point should I call ATP and schedule a start date? Should I do that after getting the loan approved or do I have to wait until I also have the medical done as well?
Also, I was told that ATP will typically schedule your start date about 1 1/2 to 2 months out. I currently work a full-time job I was planning (and wanting) to leave some time after I set the start date and before I actually leave for ATP. Considering I am planning to take at least my instrument and commercial written exams before I leave and the fact that ATP has study modules to complete before you arrive, when would be recommended to leave my job and allow myself some time to prepare for the move and start of training at ATP?
