    We've been told the academy will be 20 weeks long. They had settled on 18, however they then had to go back and add 2 weeks for peace officer training.

    They seem to set on trying to promote a class in January, and then are projecting that they would put another class in in June or July.

    Interesting. Has peace officer training always been a part of the academy? what is the theory behind all FDNY being peace officer status?

    I believe it's always been a part of it, just the state mandated more training hours so now it's a full 2 weeks instead of however many days it used to be. I am not an expert on why firefighters are peace officers, but I know it's that title that allows them to write tickets for things related to the firehouse/building codes/etc. I've also heard supposedly the peace officer status is the way they are legally able to break into someone's house when it appears warranted? I believe it's also a NYS law that all career FFs be peace officers. I'm not an expert though.

    List in the low 6000's with a 98. Shame I didn't have any points. From you guy's professional opinions is there a reason to post here anymore? (Aside from being a cheerleader for yous lol.)

    Right click your .pdf page. Select "find" at the top left a box will pop up. Type in your last name and click through the material until you recognize your first name. Good luck

    Shew... so we were part lottery'ed in this too? My last four being 9**6 cost me about 1200 spots lol. Ah well, with the 1 in 3 rule (better than the 1 in 10 rule PD side) there's hope. Good luck to you all, brothers! Congrats to all those that scored well. I'm going to back to school until the academy. I suggest others work on their back up plans as well

    Remember, a lot of less-than-worthy people tried out. Let's hope the other parts of the process bring the cream to the top.

    My cousin is Ladder 55 in the South BX and told me his Chief said if you know anyone who got a 97 or up, they'll get in granted they pass the physical and other required tests.

    +1 on this. I expected to do far better than I ended up doing and hoping this is the reason.
    Is this true??

And the top is probably the cream of the crop so the further down the list you go the more candidates they probably go through to fill a class. It will probably be a few years but I would say the dream is still alive for you.
    So the city said 9000 or we are doing the math and figured that out? what did the list before 6019 go up to? I realize its a different situation but just curious.

    they said they are expecting to hire about 2400 people from this list and the promo list. that means they will be going into the 7000s easily i'm assuming. and if things were in the past

Now i have a list number in the 15,000 range so take care guys, best of luck to all who did well. Whats meant to be will be. see you at the next exam in four years. later

    Are you using Firefox ? For whatever reason when I search on FF my name doesn't come up. When I used google chrome it does though.

    By the city's own admission in the law department press release they expect to blow past that #. They said anyone roughly above #8500, or anyone that scored a 97 or higher has a realistic shot of being canvassed from this list. Obviously the people closest to that cutoff are in a real quagmire, but only time will tell.
