    Obviously depends on where you live, but go to some place like Jack Rabbit Sports (on 14th St in Manhattan) that offers recommendations based on your stride/foot placement. They have treadmills there that they video tape you running on and give you feedback/shoe suggestions based on what they see. It's free, and I've been very happy with the shoes I got from that visit.

    If you are running that much, you should really understand the different different types of running shoes on the market and make a selection based on your particular mechanics. I agree entirely with Manhattan Medic - Jack Rabbit in Manhattan (on 14th street and also uptown on 85th and Lex) is a great shop staffed entirely by very serious triathletes. I've bought all of my shoes from them for years and I've learned enough from the staff to keep lowering my marathon times.

    Yep, as said above, it's been approved. This is from the JoinFDNY Facebook page:

    Great news for all firefighter exam candidates released by the Law Department. **I do not know more information than this at this time, so please hold your questions**: "Brooklyn federal court Judge Nicholas Garaufis today formally approved the FDNY's most-recent exam, allowing the City to move forward toward hiring a new fire class. The approval follows a motion filed by the City on Monday seeking the judge's sign-off, which ensures that the City can use the eligible lists resulting from the 2012 fire exam (Exam 2000), which was taken by more than 41,000 candidates in March and April Of this year."

    Start getting your paperwork in order - very likely the Department will bring candidates in immediately for investigations. Transcripts, birth certificate, social security card, residency paperwork, DD214 for military - get it all in order NOW. If your list number means you won't get called in during the first few waves, it still doesn't hurt to have that stuff sitting in a folder ready to go.

    Also, if you haven't started a training regimen in order to be ready for the physical / medical (especially weighted stair master), CPAT, and potentially the Rock - stop wasting time.

    For everyone on 2000 I would not start scrambling yet. They probably won't start bringing in even the top of that list until the new year. Still, if you don't know where your SS card or birth certificate are, now would be the time to start looking for them or trying to get replacements. You don't want to have to try and do that on a deadline. Also start running and easing your way into shape now!

    My1goal you sure are very fast. I was also wondering the samething. This makes me even more anxious to find out what our list/score numbers are. Brooklynborn let's have our fingers crossed my man.
    Test 2000
    Score 97
    List#700X
    Do I stand a chance?

    I will not tire, I will not falter, and I will not fail!!!

    Yea, I've been away for a while. If anyone has the info it'd be greatly appreciated. And Brooklynborn, I think you should be more than fine with your residency points if you only had 4 wrongs on the test.

    But on past exams, usually how would they score it? On the 6019 exam was certain questions worth a whole point or half point?

    Dude, you should be golden. As for 6019, it's been so long that I don't really remember. But some were partial while others were whole. Maybe a fellow 6019'er could chime in.
