    Remember that not all "classes" are created equal. When you look to previous posts fo reference, remember those two classes were 40 and 50 recruits each, Those were 2 of the biggest classes in TFRD history. As stated on the TFRD FB page, it is not so cut and dry how far they go back on the list and why they go so far back on ay given list. Many factors play a part including demographic requirements being met. But to give all a reference point to this list, the first class went well in the 150's to find its last person, and the next class went into the mid 350's. Again, remember that these were unique circumstances, b/c of how quickly the class tunover was ( each class was just a year apart) and the size of the classes (40/50 size classes are the exception not the normal rule).

    The letters sent out will state no more than your score and rank. If you move on, you will get another letter notifying you of the next step.

    I scored close to the top of the list. Surprised myself really. I'm not taking anything for granted or expecting anything, just patiently waiting for the process to continue. As evidenced by some postings on the Facebook page, people just get rude and impatient. First the results don't come out quick enough, then when they do come out there aren't enough details, then when are they doing backgrounds, etc, etc?

    If I have learned anything from the hiring process at my current department, when they get to you, they get to you. Nothing that you can say or do will speed things up so just go with the flow.

    Congrats backsteprescue123 and trekker!
    The list is usually good for 2 years, but they can extend it if they want. That's what happened from the 2001 list. I got called for an interview in 2006 but couldn't go because my husband had just gotten a job out here.
    So if you are in the top 100, you will most likely get background checked for this upcoming class. The higher you are, the better your chances.

    Default Excited and Nervous at the same time

    I scored a 91.8%. My only thing is, that the last time I took the test, in the letter that we received it stated how many were moving on. This letter didn't specify. Im anxious.

    I wouldn't worry to much about the unknown during this process. Nobody really knows whats going on and. My letter from 2008 did say the top 114 were moving on to the background portion of the process. This recent score card just told my raw score and ranking. I'm wondering if the city is going to wait until after issue 2 is voted on to make a determination on class size. I could be wrong though.

    My letter hasn't showed up yet either. I'm only 60 miles away though.

    Thanks BrownSquirrel. Yeah I guess it makes sense about waiting to see if the bill passes.

    No word on how many are getting checked. I don't get home from work until around 3 AM, so I was asleep when the call came. My mind wasn't functioning enough to ask questions. I actually had a few cups of Joe and then called back to make sure I had taken all the info down properly.
