    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?

    August 4th for me. And I'm taking the PAT re-take on Thursday to try to bump my score a little.

    Congrats to those moving on, out of curiosity what did you score on the written? I scored 88 on written and a 100 on the physical and didn't recieve an invite to the orals.
    Thanks

    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?

    @NCalif
    I haven't heard how/if they are ranked, but there is a retake for the physical slated for the 14th and 16th, so that has the possibility of changing the rankings anyway. I remember the email saying we would all receive total scores (not sure if that includes ranking) after 16 July, but even that does not include our Oral board scores (for obvious reasons) so if it was ranked it would be useless.

    I agree. Pretty sure the rankings are determined after all 3 phases are complete.

    I think it's totally random unless of course you are scheduled for the 2nd @ 9 time slot... then you are guaranteed a place in their next academy. [BS alarm sounding in background]

    If anyone is interested in getting together to practice interviews, send me a PM. (I'll be out of town 7/18-7/27, so probably after that)

    Bumped up the old score by 8 points today by getting 100% on the PAT re-take. Pretty happy right now. (3:24, 1:58)

    I disagree. I passed the first 2 phases and still wasn't invited to sit for orals. I find it unfair that people are able to pay for a second shot to better their score for only the pat. I would love for a chance to pay for a retake of the written. Oh well, good luck to everyone who continued on.
    If you aim at nothing, you will surely hit it.

    Hey all,
    Just saw this today:

    http://www.denverpost.com/ci_18548485

    Wonder what that does for hiring off the list being created. Anybody on at West Met that might know when/if an academy is planned for early next year?

    You too!

    Did everyone get that email from Jo on what to expect? Interesting that there could be potential follow up questions. Usually dept are getting away from those.
