    Same here. Everyone that I know is getting some low scores. Strange.

    Maybe this test was scored tougher than the last? I am not really hearing about any high scores like last test...

    Good luck to you.

    I also have to consider that I have a good opportunity elsewhere and perhaps this score helps me not have to make a difficult decision in the future.

    Status now says "placed on eligibility list". Does this mean they have the rankings? I don't think the points have been added for paramedic, ect. First I heard we wouldn't know until 8/22, but yesterday I was told nothing until 8/27....

    Does anyone know whether or not because we all have made the eligibility list, will we automatically get selected for the background check?

    Ranks come out some time next week..u r ranked in the order of ur score starting from 105 to 0...the higher ur score the better ranked u r...there is no failing score..but if ur in the upper hundreds I wouldnt get ur hopes up, that's why everyone is on the lost...but no one knows what score is a bad score because the ranks r not out yet...no one knows who got what..if the average is 80...and there is only a handful of people above that then they will be high on the ranking list nd then it will go from there...will know where everyone stands once u get ur ranks...

    I believe its in the order you turned in your application. So if you are tied with someone else and they turned their app in first they would be ranked ahead of u...

    Not everyone goes through the rest of the process. Say we are hiring 20 off of this list for the first class. We might put 5 people for each slot through the background, psych, etc. Still, that is a 100 people right there and we will be hiring again off of this list within the year. Also remember that a lot of guys will be eliminated through backgrounds, psych test, voice stress, etc. This is a good list to be on guys. Good luck.

    Usually though the first 20 rankings are extremely good canidates so there isn't to much wiggle room to get picked up in the first class correct.

    every test is different..im hearing alot of low scores so no one can really say what the high scores are...it all depends on where everyone is ranked

    Thumbs up

    The 22nd is the day they mentioned at the meeting. I called HR when a buddy of mine who took the test with me and my brother who took it the next day Both had they're scores and I still didn't. HR said that they were putting people in ranks and that all the information should be available the 22nd.

    I got a 92.22 but I'm not "celebrating" anything until I get threw the rest of the hurdles and someone hands me gear. Psych , lie detector, voice stress all those sound like no joke and With the luck I got the guys who showed up late, in shorts or and injured veteran are going to be higher than me in the process. ( didn't the HR lady mention that injured vets
    Go to the top of the list no matter what they score in the BAP?)
    In other words.. The grass ain't any greener on this side brother. I know guys with higher scores than me who r just as low /nervous/ or negative. Keep your head high and keep fighting because at the end of the day it's all you can do.

    Good luck boys

    The #1 ranked guy from a couple of classes ago was eliminated in background. Another guy in the top 10 was eliminated during background. A guy who actually got hired went out on South Beach to celebrate and got drunk and started trouble. When Beach cops got involved he started babbling about being MBFD and was arrested. Needless to say that he didn't make it to the first day of recruit training. Point is all that you can do is keep your head up and let things fall into place. You just never know how things are going to unfold.

    Does anyone know whether or not the initial scores that we received included bonus points?
