    Anybody have any news? It can't be looking good for the majority of us without offers. Ahhhhhhh, I just want to know one way or the other so I can move on with my life or start getting prepared for academy. Sorry to vent my frustrations, I know I'm not the only one feeling this way. Let us know if anybody has any info. Thanks

    SFD was calling alternates today to let them know they are, well, alternates. So I would assume all calls are out (per HR dept.)

    But who knows for sure until you receive a letter...things could change.

    Keep an eye on your mail box, no the other one. I am 99% sure Dori said the notification would come snail mail and that it would have a ranking. Others have said otherwise but this is what she told me, because I asked. Aside from that you have to believe all calls including alts could be finished in two days.

    Keep your lines in the water, it will happen. If you give up, thank you, you are one less to compete with next time, to the rest...
    ...see you at the next written, wherever that may be.

    KTF, good luck with TV.

    Happy Holidays to all.

    Friend of mine spoke with HR today and was told calls were being made "through tomorrow"(Wed). Not trying to rile up false hope just repeating what was told to me, but I think after tomorrow it's time to admit defeat, at least for this round. Thanks everyone for all the info, again congrats to those who made it, make us proud, and good luck to everyone in the future rounds for Seattle or other departments.

    Thanks for the info washedup, well at least I can breathe a little easier now. Good to know the rankings will be attached to the letter we receive. Guess it's about time to start thinking about the next test, and what I can do between now and then to make myself a better candidate. Thanks for all the help and info you guys. Maybe see you in August....

    Info from conversation with Dori in HR this morning. She said all calls went out Monday for top 24, waiting to hear from 1 person and alternates were being called today (Tuesday). She told me in my PHQ review they intend to use this list through 2012 since they won't have a written next year. BUT, as we all know in this game the rules and rumors change often so good luck to all. Hope the rumors are true and they use this list for Recruit Class 99 in August 2011.

    I've been told by some insiders that there will be a fall academy from this list...As is the case with these things, nothing is certain. Hopefully some more from the forums get a call later this year. I'll do my best to kill it in February.

    I would just remind guys that there's a high probability of an Aug class and this list is still going to be used through 2012 (and possibly 2013) as well. You're sitting pretty if you made it to the Chief's interview. Hang in there. And this comes from a guy who was told my list was dead and that I'd died at the top. Got the job. Keep doing what you're doing and good things will happen. Congrats to those hired. We'll see you at the Sat sessions once RC98 starts.

    Just to second many of the previous posts, there are tons guys retiring this year from SFD and they are already running way under par on staffing. There's been more overtime this year than guys have ever seen that have been with the dept for 30+ years. There are strong rumors of a second class being pulled from the list. With the budget cuts it only makes sense to save money by pulling guys off an active list than going through the entire testing process again. Good luck to everyone, and if you make it into an August class if they have one, enjoy the weather because this February is going to be awfully cold and wet. I'll enjoy every minute of it though.

    Strong work KTF! Saw that you had an offer with TVFD as well, you mind if I drink some of your kool-aid? Keeping the faith seems to have paid dividends for you, good job.
