    I did't use all of my time either (finished more than a few minutes early). At first I thought that might have been a mistake, but in retrospect, I feel that a worse sin would have been to ramble for the sake of filling up time.

    Good point, thats what I was thinking to. Rambling can lead you to say things that sound repetitive. Anyway, good luck to you.

    Why do you strongly disagree?

    I agree with you Persistence. This oral board is set up to be repetitive and hit mulitple words on different anwsers, so the more time you use the more words you hit.

    Just my .02 cents and I may be completely wrong!

    I agree to a certain extent, though I believe you do need to keep the reiterating to a minimum. It's out of our hands now, so we'll just have to wait and see. Good luck to you all!

    Any thoughts on getting an early jump on reciprocity? There is some online info on reciprocity, most of the links are broken and appear to be out-of-date. Is this something I should be concerning myself with now, or will there be plenty of time pre-acedemy?

    It's a pretty fast process once you need it. I'd hold off until later in the process. The department will help you ensure you get it squared away. they're more worried that you actually have an EMT already, and about getting the right candidates. All it requires is getting your hands on the King Co. protocols and then the Health Services folks give you a test in their office. I had to do it and it was not too big a deal. Hope that helps...Bottom line, I'd hold off until you're further into the process and then you can get it taken care of if so inclined.

    How does it work if you don't have an EMT certification yet?

    You have to have your EMT prior to starting academy, but I wouldn't recommend letting it get that far. You can either A/ Get it on your own through a private company/school or B/ Hope you're in the top 100 after your 2 oral board scores are tallied and the department will extend you an offer to get the EMT program paid for and taught at SFD (prior to academy). I would start a program on my own ASAP if you don't have your EMT already unless you are super confident you're going to be in the top 100.

    And to answer about an academy: they were shooting for sometime this year, but most likely they won't have an academy until Feb 12. Not gospel, but just the most likely scenario.

    As long as they're not discriminatory, or on the face I don't think it's a big deal. We have some inked up mofos, but I've never seen any with ink on hands or face/neck.

    SFD web site posted my written score this morning (4/21) to my "Application Status" page, but no other updates to the schedule. Has anyone seen anything different?

    Got my score also. Like you, I haven't heard anything else. Wish the score factored into the final rank - I did better than I thought.

    Checked my "Application Status" again today at 3:15, and see that SFD posted several times for me to pick for my 2nd Oral Board exam. Hope you all are moving on, too.

    Hmmmm. Just refreshed my screen to pick a time, and status has reverted to blank (only written test score is showing). Anybody see anything like that?

    This happened after the test before they posted whether or not you were not going to be moving on to a first interview...the next day everything, including results, was up. So I expect we'll see the same thing here and have some news soon.
