It's funny because myself and someone else had exam B and we thought we had the tricky one lol.
In general all these scores seem pretty great and at first that was making me nervous. "Oh God everyone is gonna have a 99 or better on this friggin test!". I was worried that 10,000 people would have 99 or better with residency, vet, etc. But honestly think about it, not many people are gonna come on this site and brag about getting 10 NC's and 40 PC. Aside from the fact that those people probably dont care enough to find a site like this, no one wants to stick their neck out and say they bombed a whole test.
I just got back from my review. I had form B and got three wrong in the first part which I protested all of them because my answers made sense.. But I got a lot of partial credits on the second part. That part of the test was bull**** you had to be lying to get full credit!!
hey dont post on here very much but try and keep up with the post. I didnt go to my review because of living out of state and down south. wanted to say congrats to all who did well. I took a class this week with a very very good source(some one pretty secure with info who is a fdny member ) and this was his info to me.
short about 6-7000
hiring about 3-4000 off the list
for every 1 they put into the acadmey they go through 3-4 people(due to cpat and other factors)
in good times thats 12,000 in this economy more people will take the job so figure about 9000
what it comes down to is if you get your list number which should be out by JULY if you are under 10000 you have a shot in the top 5000 you are in really good shape since im a fireman down south just keeping my fingers crossed for july and hoping it all goes well. just wanted to share the info good luck to all
really like how active the forum has been lately.. keep it up guys, and good luck to everyone.. While you wait for your lists number just keep on training, nothing beats good health and staying physically active
1 nc on first 4 sections, 5 pc on personality w/ all protested on the personality. Soo ****ed at my stupid mistake to get the one NC. Oh well, gotta roll with the punches on this one.
Hey guys, I have my review tomorrow at 12. Anyone know if they'll give me a problem if I show up a couple hours early?
You guys getting 5 or less pcs on the back end killed it, idk how you did it lol
I scrolled the last two pages in trying to catch up. Hope someone hasn't covered my thoughts yet:
A wise man once said that these personality tests are built to find leaders and followers. From that, they can choose one, the other or both. What if it goes deeper? What if, based on partial credits and full credits, the put us into groups of personalities? Say I got nothing but FC's and they call me a leader. Another candidate gets nothing but PC's on the low-end (as each PC would be weighted differently) would be a follower and a third candidate gets a mix (might be labelled as something like "follower with leadership tendencies"). Then, they find out in which group a majority of the minorities scored and put the most weight on that group of personalities. From this group, they would start the list numbers. Remember, the test won't be validated until after the judge takes a look and approves. It's easy to throw together some statistics like what I've described
I feel like the conspiracy theories can only get crazier... lol
On the personality section to get a perfect score you had to of lied... maybe they were looking for the people who got in the "middle" since they were probably more truth full
Joinfdny said that the psi administrators stating that we will see our scores in July are incorrect. They also said that the courts have to approve the results before they send them out to candidates.
One way or the other, I wouldn't freak out about how anyone did on the personality questions just yet. You may know if you got FC or PC on a question, but who knows how each question will be weighted. The powers that be can weigh each question however they want and you'll never really know how they did it, so long as it achieves their desired agenda.
My best advice would be to work out and enjoy the summer! All this speculation is just gunna drive everyone mad.
Just finished. 2nc and 9pc. I guess all those x girlfriends were rite about my sh***Y personality
All I know is that after acing the first 4 parts, I'll be one ****ed mofo if I don't get on the job because "I lose things much less than others" lol.
Does anyone know how the list works if your under 21? Do they just skip over you? or are you just called to the first class available after you turn 21? Also, am I the only one that thinks it's complete BS that volunteers don't get any extra credit?
Sdeluca they will make you go through the whole process and put you on hold till you reached the required age to get in the academy. About the volunteer part, i dont want to offend anyone here or anyone whos family member, close friend or what lever but no I don't think is BS, there's not much requirements to be a volunteer firefighter so to me there's no reason on why they should, actually most volunteers that I seen are obesed or close to it. Just my opinion anyways others can think differently.
Ok thanks, that cleared up a lot.
On the volunteer thing, I mean your right on some aspects but most of the young guys like me are in shape, and are the ones taking the test. And I mean you get points for living in the city, but no points for already being trained and experienced as a firefighter? Doesn't make sense to me but it is what it is I guess
