    After looking at the scores, I barely missed the cut. From what I could see, 93.01 was the lowest score that advanced. I made a 92.99, 2 100ths of a point! I have taken this test two other times and scored a 96 and change each time...

    Good luck to those that advanced. I probably would have died on the 1.5 mile run!

    Nick, that was the conclusion that I came to on the stair question. I thought 96 was the correct answer, but it seemed that 48 was the next best thing.

    Anyways I made it in the top 250 as well, so I will see yall at the run. It is supposed to be bright and sunny on Thursday so I'm looking forward to a nice jog in that Texas heat!

    I ended up getting a 100 on it, which the test was real similar to mesquite's and ft worths. I wanna think i chose 72 as the answer on the stairs one, but i originally thought it was 90somthing as well, but then redid it and came up with 72. I also know I mispelt one of the words, but somehow made a 100..so not sure how their scoring system works and if they omit certain quetsions or what. I'm running friday at 9am, c yall there.

    Here's my theory on how they do scoring. 105 question 5 of which are sample questions for future tests. that leaves 100 out of 100 possible. The 55 personality questions don't count as negative but you can get extra points from them depending on how many you get right. So lets say you get 97/100 on the test but all 55 personality right they bonus your score up to 100. That just theory though. Thats the only way I see getting 100 cause I'm sure iI missed some as well.

    seems accurate, only one failed at my run and tcc said about 250 doin the physical. thats 6900 bucks if they're test 230 guys. and if 1700 took the original test thats 85000

    I did my PAT on Monday at 9 AM. You don't get to watch the other guys do their PAT, so I'm not sure how anyone else was doing, but mine went well. I think my time was around 2:30 for the revolution (out of the 4 mins), so it wasnt to bad. Just pace yourself slow on the ladder since you have plenty of time there, and save all of your energy for the revolution.

    I have an idea of what to typically expect for oral boards, and have been preparing, but does anyone have any info on what to expect for the Arlington oral boards specifically? Typical questions that Arlington specifically likes to ask? Situational questions? Personality questions?

    Yea interview on the 6th...cant wait. I really wish i wasn't sick through this whole physical process though. The run almost killed me cause i had NO lung volume. Was feeling a bit better for the physical though and it wasnt 8000 degrees so that helped.

    Also, should I ask the panel questions if they present me with the opportunity? I have heard people say "yes" and "no" to this situation...I have done some research and have a few well thought out questions I just don't know if it would be a good idea....I figure if they ask if I have any questions for them it's fair game....maybe not?
