    Thanks. I must have been so distracted by the guy flipping his pencil around his fingers for twenty minutes.

    Any word on when they're expecting to start an academy from this process?

    When the whole process was announced it said that classes won't start until 2012/2013 from this list. However that was before the Governor announced his new budget, so who knows if they'll even hire in 2012/2013 or just let attrtition save them money that they're gonna be losing from the state.

    Hi guys- Can anyone who took the test on 5/14 tell me how much of the exam was based on the study guide? I hope most of it as I have it pretty well memorized and am still going over it for the hell of it. See some of you guys saturday at 1:00. Maybe we can have a forum bar crawl after the test.

    Dont worry the test is made to be easy. Plus it's only pass/fail. The bpad or foam or what ever its called is what matters.

    when i tested, was chatting with a civil service guy, he said over seven thousand were in attendance over all the days.
    not sure how much water that statement holds, just putting it out there in case anyone else heard something.

    Yea that would seem like quite a bit to me. I tested at 1pm on the 14th and I'd guess there was about 75 people there. Maybe they had 7000 applicants but if I had to guess without going back to their site if they had 7 test days with two tests a day that would be about a thousand people unless the my test time was just underrepresented.

    I was at the 8 am test may 21st and only 150 showed up. They had seats set up for around 500. Also had no idea this was for a possible job 2012/2013. I was unaware you have to go through their emt-b and paramedic school. Seems like it would cost the city a lot of money to put paramedics through emt-b school...doesn't make much sense to me?

    mine on the 19th was about 9/10 the way full. Two Tests a day, either way we are looking between 4500 and 6000 folks for however many spots are available.

    i took mine on the 13th, and maybe it was 7000 that applied online or whatever, but depending on how many showed up is up in the air; my test session was seven rows full of people

    Yea maybe 7000 applied but with the mixed turnouts at testing times maybe the number tested was closer to 4500-5000? Strange that some people had full rooms and others had very little people. Like I said I think there was less then 2 full rows when I took it. Guess we'll have a better guess when we get back our scores and get physical dates.

    Awesome and congrats on passing. Now I will be checking my email every 5 seconds.

    Passing was anything over 70 right?
