    The word on the Facebook page Join Fdny is that only 871 people took the promotional exam, that's kind of good news since I was hearing about 5000 signed up.

    That would be something considering there are only approximately 3300 EMS EMT's and medics.

    We still don't know how their going to grade the exam, so theirs no point getting down on yourself or stressed out about it. We'll have to wait until they send out list numbers, because thats all that really matters.

    That's just it. Even those negative people don't know how it will be scored. Your 16 PCs may fall into the perfect range. Ranges are where my money is being placed. Those FCs are deceptive. Be easy. You can't control anything until the list numbers are released. It might come out and you're at the the number one spot for competitive exam. Just stay healthy and keep your nose clean.

    Wow this thread lost its momentum real quick. The last 20 pages look exactly the same. Everyones focused on FC and PC. This got so dull. I'll be back in a year when scores are sent out.
    Later everyone

    If you look back through this forum you'll find the phone number for the woman who is the Military Liaison - she'll be able to help you. If you can't find it, contact the person on the JoinFDNY Facebook or Twitter page and they'll put you in touch.

    It is amazing to see how people are trying to rationalize their own scores to make it better.. The only way to know is to wait it out. Why would they give you full credit for an answer but consider that a bad thing? It makes no sense. But then again this whole process is ridiculous and who knows what they will do.

    Not true, call Mrs. Ammons at DCAS, she is the veteran's liaison. Her number is 212.669.7280. The point breakdown is as follows:

    NYC Residency - 5 Points
    Veteran - 5 Points
    Disabled Veteran - 10 Points
    Legacy Credit - 10 Points

    All of which can be combined to achieve a hypothetical 125 on the exam, you can't combine Vet and Dis. Vet. Those are the only stipulations. However, I don't know how inclined I would be to claim "disabled" on a job that is already looking for any and all reasons to not hire. It's not discrimination if they can tie a disability to the idea of not being able to perform.

    I don't want to get into the thousands of personality tests that exist in human resources but research the Likert Scale. You'll see that different amounts of points can be assigned to different answers. From this, ranges can be developed. Yes, there was a full credit available but receiving maxium credit may not be a good thing if FDNY is looking for something else. These folks are not rationalizing. They're worried. If after the list numbers are established they are saying the same stuff, then they are rationalizing.

    Hey all,
    I've written up a running schedule and attached it here as a .pdf file. It's 28 weeks from start to finish, which I realize is a pretty long time. The idea is to get a person who has never run before, or at least not in a very long time, ready to handle any running they might throw at him during the academy. I chose a longer schedule because it's better to err on the side of caution when increasing your mileage and workout intensity rather than rush into it and get hurt. If any of you get lucky and end up looking at an academy starting in less time than this, I'll work with you to put together a more rapid progression.

    For those of you who are already running regularly, this schedule can absolutely be started at week 11, or further on, just pick a week that has a similar amount of mileage to what you've already been doing.

    After 20 weeks, I put in 8 weeks of interval and uptempo running to get you from generally fit running to the point that you're developing explosive strength and a big anaerobic running output. This is generally a transition from basic cardio fitness to the "legs and lungs" they'll want you to have at the rock. You'll be ready to crush the stepmill, and any hills, plyos, or wind sprints they have us doing at the rock.

    Just a disclaimer, this is meant to be helpful to anyone who's looking for some structure. I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do or discount anyone else's training. If you guys have any questions, comments, concerns, fire away on here or PM me.

    Also, if people want to try to organize a running group once or twice a week, I usually run in central park.

    great work, rpnyc, it is much appreciated. I'm sure almost all of us can learn a thing or two from this schedule.

    one Q I had though, if you are not currently doing any sort of running, should you jump right in and attempt 2 mile runs?
