    I think once put on the spot I might have strayed from game plan and answered a few of those differently then I wanted to.

    I think that was their intention. Not sure what they are trying to accomplish, and what direction they are trying to take the department into.

    There is something to be said about a candidate who studies, prepares, and strives to do as well as they can on a exam, whether it be the SATs or a civil service exam.

    in my opinion, i think they want to see consistency in your answers in the personality portion, i think in the end which was said before here, stay honest and be yourself and you wont have anything to worry about

    i only wish everyone here that took the test did very well and can only hope for the best for everyone here!

    Not that any one has said anything, but just reminding everyone to hold off on specifics for a little while longer.

    Have anyone heard how many people tested? I felt like there were a lot of empty seats when I tested.

    I wonder if they will tell us for sure exactly how many people tested out of the 60,000 people that applied. Not that it matters but It would be fun to know since no one is really telling us anything.

    I would just like to know if the recruitment efforts and test were a success or should we start planning for another exam. I guess they won't know until list numbers are given

    Yea they'll need the numbers to see which percentage of "groups" passed and which didn't. This is far from over. My advice? "Set it and forget it." Wait for that next piece of mail but otherwise, find other productive things to do with your life. Stay positive but not naive. I hope you guys that are hoping for an academy in a year aren't holding your breath the whole time. Things haven't even begun to get dirty.

    As long as we're all different colors, there will be people pointing fingers; further threading the quilt of racism that blankets the world. Hopefully, in a couple of hundred years skin color won't matter.

    Guys, relax. No sense of worrying about all this bs about the test, race cards, etc. When you're notified of your results or the next step, then your questions are answered. Everyone is going to say different things are taking place and 90% of them are talking out of their @$$. Stop stressing, relax and when you hear back, you hear back..

    Other then the whole test being thrown out based on race why is everyone talking about race during this test. I wasn't asked what race I was and I don't think any of you were either. Correct me if I'm wrong but they have no real way of knowing your skin color.

    We were asked when we signed up for the exam.

    Bensonhurst,

    I believe the reason why race is being brought up is because of past litigation involving the vulcan society. Home Page and the results of the test will not be posted until approval of the judge and representatives of the vulcan society.

    According to the NOE from the city.

    "This examination process is being conducted under the supervision of the United States District Court for the
    Eastern District of New York and is subject to that Court’s approval as a result of litigation captioned United
    States and The Vulcan Society, et al. v. City of New York, 07 CV 2067."

    As far as the identification of race you had to state that with the initial application I want to say.

    I think your 1st comment about "Other then the whole test being thrown out based on race why is everyone talking about race during this test" is reason enough to talk about it. It, along with some dickwod judge, are the only reasons alot of guys aren't 3+ years on the job right now.

    You had to answer mandatory what race you are during the application process back in July to September. I remember because I couldn't skip that question when I filled it out. So yea they all know what we are plus you had to enter your ssn before you took your exam. That alone is enough info to figure who you are.

    whatever, sorry for my thought. this isnt really important anyway. when is the last test date so we can all discuss this f uckery of an exam. The math was a joke. everyone was sitting here worrying about the math as if it would be college trig and it was basic bull*hit. i for one think in four years for the next exam they should hand out word searches and whoever can find the most words in 20 minutes gets to take the physical.

    The reality of that statement just felt like getting sucker punched in the gut. Best of luck to us all. Lord knows we need it with this "judge".
