    Jukez, could you elaborate more on the cut off? I'll be 31-32, if I'm called at all. Is there a maximum age for entering the academy?

    Remember that military veterans can deduct up to 6 years off of their age for time in the military.

    There is no maximum age for entering the academy. You have to have not reached your 29th birthday when you take the written test but anyone who took 6019 got a 5 years extension to that rule for this test and only this test.

This makes me wonder how many other people in this list believe that the age limit is 35 for EVERYONE?? O well. As bad as it sounds but 2 less people I have to worry about.

    I'm aware of that and no they were not military either. I don't want to get anyone's hopes up further down the list but I'm pretty sure they will go through one thousand names just to get a full class of the OC guys.

    Are you sure you were all talking about FDNY then?
    Something isn't adding up. If they weren't prior military, then they would not have been allowed to even file let alone sit for the exam 2000 due to their ages.

    I think DCAS could care less if you meet the requirements, they just wanted the $25 application fee. Lol

    Yes they took the same test we all did and Trust me is possible. When I went for my fdny interview in 08' me and this other guy were sitting in a comference room with our investigator, and she told him that he missed the cut off age by one day. I remember you had to be born August 29 or later, he was born August 28th.... I was sitting there worried that I was too young (20 years old) and this guy missed it by one day!

    I saw some one on the list who I know is too old. I don't remember, but wouldn't the filing app keep you keep you from filing if you were too old, unless you picked that you took 6019 or picked a false birthday?

    Edit: just saw Bams post answering my questions.

    you had to still be 28 when you filed if I remember correctly. Unless you have military or took 6019 then you can be older.

    I know a candidate who took the exam thinking the age limit was 36 for EVERYONE. The age limit was only extended past the 29 cut off for those who took 6019 as we all know. Im not going to be the one to tell him. There is going to be a lot of cases like this one just like there are going to be plenty of cases where people claimed residency but cannot supply the requiremnt paperwork to prove it.

    How do these guys think they can run up buildings for 22 years starting at age 36? If I was in a burning building I think I would prefer someone under 50 saving me... Ofcourse thats just me talking

    You have to be at least a day younger than 29 to file.

    QCfrank, how well did he do?

    You have to be 28 file, I don't know why they write it as younger than 29.

    I would love for you to sit down with any firefighter OTJ who is over the age of 50 and tell them that.


    edit: I personally know 2 guys on the EMS list who are too old. One is indifferent... if he happened to slip through the cracks he'll take the promotion, if not then oh well no big deal. The other is much more vested in it... and going to be in for a big let down.

    He did good enough to get hired. List # in the 2000's.

    On the first day to file for the exam (which was approx July 11 2011) you cannot have reached your 29th bday.

    For those who took the last exam (#6019) the age limit was extended to 36 years old. As long as you didnt turn 36 by July 11 2011 then you were eligible (which was anyone who took exam 6019)

    I know guys in their 50s that could smoke both of us in ANY sort of running/physical activity competition. Age is just a number.

    There must be hundreds of cases like this in my opinion. This is the reason why I say that they will go through 1000 names easily through the first class. You will probably see guys in the low thousands in the same class as guys in the low 2000s
