    I got my email too. Man they must be working some overtime, I got the email after 8pm. On to the next phase. I wonder if this PAE is tougher than the CPAT.

    They are taking the top 30 scores to the interview. The top 30 scores on written test that pass pat will get oral board. Bad odds till you start thinking about this.

    The top score guys may have the flu that day .... a whole bunch of people may have the same score ... then maybe they take more than 30 to the oral board.

    Either way its worth the try because we don't know the rank of the scores.

    definately tough, I practiced without the weighted vest and when you put on that 50 lbs, it definately makes it 2-3x harder.

    It definately was not easy, that weighted vest takes it out of you.

    the test is not easy, I practiced at the academy without weights. Night and day, those weights kicked my butt, good luck. Are you a medic? Have you heard anything on how they are picking the top 30???

    I just got home a little while ago from taking it. Wasn't too bad, got a 5:56 on it.

    I heard a lot of different things saying they were going to hire 30, 20 or 15. Anyone know what the official number is?

    "***Top 30 Overall will advance to Oral Interviews***

    3. The Oral Interviews will be conducted December 7, 2009 through December 8, 2009."

    From the grapevine ... 15 to be hired (just rumor) but as you can see from the email that they will interview 30 ..... to develop a pool to pick from.

    Good luck.

    I have a good source that spoke to Chief Ellerbe and told me that they're hiring 16. I had heard the rumor of 15, but trust my source.

    I'm hoping we hear something today, since interviews start in 5 days...

    I got 6:25 on my test. I felt good up until the sled, and then my grip and thighs just died. The vest definitely made it more difficult.
