    I'm tied at 27th. I think it's like 102.5 or something like that. Vet with disability points really helped out. U?

    If your 27th on the list I wouldn't be thinking about Medic school at Century this fall! If you pass the psych, interview etc. (which if you're are not a complete moron you shouldn't have a problem with) you should be planning on being in the first if not the second Academy class! St. Paul usually does an 1-2 academy classes per year of about 15-25 guys each class FYI!
    Congrats on your score!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed but I gotta have a back up plan if I don't get in. There is still a lot of competition. Plus I get the GI Bill for going to school so it makes sense for now.

    Nope nothing yet here. I have heard interviews may be somewhere at the end of this month or beginning of September. What is your rank number Morgie?

    Hey brother I'm right there with ya with 100 congrats. So how reliable is your source with what you were told about the timeline for interviews? Do you think well have a shot at those interviews too? Just wondering because I'm out of state in AZ trying to figure out days off and annual leave from work. Thanks for any response bro.

    Congrats and good luck to you. My source is usually pretty accurate, and was positive the interviews would be end of month or beginning of next. Not sure on the amount though, it all depends on how many the FD need. They interview 2x the number of FF's needed plus ties.... So it could reach down to us, just not sure.

    FYI the list is updated. Not much change though. Anyone got any letters or gossip about when this thing will get started?

    Haven't heard anything here yet. My thought is after Labor day. Some requirements had a deadline of Aug 31 (today) so my guess is they're waiting to give everyone a chance to get those things taken care of.

    That would make sense if they just changed the list again. I hope your right.

    Wow congrats! As long as you pass everything else you'll definitely be getting hired! Are you a vet with residency?

    I don't think it works like that. From what I've heard the oral is the hardest part of the process. I'm sure I'll at least get an interview (I hope at least), but I don't know much beyond that.

    I heard the psych thing sucks too from a guy in law enforcement. FFL173 don't count yourself out, you never know.......and good luck to you, Corporal. Nice work.

    BTW, does everyone get the background docs, or just say, the top 50-100, depending the number they want for the first class?

    I talked to a guy I know on SPFD. He told me that a dozen or so guys put papers in and plan on retiring by the end of this year, and a few have been promoted, also the supermedic program is running.

    We should hear something in the next week or two.

    I'm not completely counting myself out Kaiser, but I'm #597 on the list, it doesn't look to promising. But thanks for the encouragment, I guess there's always the slightest possibility us way down on the list could get the call.

    As far as medicpaul says, I know a couple guys on SPFD as well. This is a great list to be on. A lot of guys are promoting to FEO and Captain, plus 2 big classes of guys that were hired a while back are going to be retiring within the next 1-3 years. Between guys promoting and retiring, a lot of spots will be opening up which in turn means lot of guys will be getting hired.

    Good luck to everyone

    This is my first experience with the St Paul hiring process. if anyone can explain the complete process from how many guys they interview for each position to what exactly you go through as far as oral interview, psych eval ect... Also wondering if someone gets any interview, but doesnt get hired to they go back to the eligible list or are they done? Also I'm sitting at 113 on the list and sounds like they are going to hire a bunch of people. Do I have any chance of getting a call before the list expires?

    Thanks in advance for the help and Congrats and Good Luck to everyone who is on the list.
