    According to their calendar on their website oral board invites don't go out until July 25th specifically. I posted the link below.

    Nice. I lived in Webster Groves and went to UMSL. When I got my EMT-B, I did my clinical hours with Clayton FD. Awesome group of guys that got me hooked on this whole firefighting thing.

    Sorry for the hijack guys. Back to the regularly scheduled thread.

    Anyone know the dates for oral boards? I got a 90 on test and 5:08 on PAT. The proctors were fantastic and really help push you. The run took everything I had...legs were spent and the last 1/8 I could barely see. Whew!

    They'll probably let us know after the PAT retakes have been finished.

    Still a good score...for $35 and 4 weeks to train, might as well shoot for that 100.

    I'd take you up on the offer, but I'm in the Springs. Like Duron said though... tape recorder.

    I second this. Of my group today several of the guys had 100s. I told myself today I was leaving with a 100% or 35$ less in my pocket. I would do it.

    I ended up with a 5:13- 3:16 section 1 and 1:57 section 2. I was really happy to hit my times. I was shooting for 3:30 for the first part and 2 mins for the run.

    Now where's that tape recorder...

    Well, just got an email today giving me an oral board invitation. I was thinking that it wouldn't happen until after the retest PATs happened but I guess they are getting an early start on it for some reason. Anyone else get a date for the oral boards?

    88 on written and 92 on physical... did you meet all the requirements outlined in the application? If so, that's wierd.

    So how did they pick interview times? Did they rank everyone or is it random?
