    if he is, you should become friends with him, after a few years maybe the judge will return the favor and appoint you commissioner lol.

    This whole ****ing thing is a joke and one that is going to cost me a shot at the only job I've wanted for a very long time. The fact that one ***hole in a robe can exert this much power over the Department is beyond me, I'm still in shock over how it all happened.

    This time last week, I was anxious about my List #, but trying to figure out how many classes I may have to wait to get called, with the assumption that with only 1 NC on the parts of the exam that actually had Right or Wrong answers, i may have a decent shot.

    Now I'm trying to figure out what to do for a career knowing that unless they raise the age limit again, the FDNY is not in the cards.

    It's a disgrace, no other way to put it.

    I strongly agree with you 100% on this one. I think we should all push to extend the age limit again. 6019 candidates deserve another shot at this in my opinion. Maybe Paul Mannix can help this become possible.

    Read the NOE, you don't need 15 credits



    You don't have 6 months of full time, paid work exp?
    I do and that's great news. I still plan to get those credits but that takes some pressure off.

    When they say "satisfactory" is that based off of your employers judgement of your performance or does the work exp. have to be in some way relevant to fire fighting?

    Any idea how they assign your firehouse after the academy? Is it at all based on trying to keep you close to where you live?

    And, any idea how much overtime probies get a month?

    I'm considering switching over from nypd so it would be a decent pay cut, especially in the beginning. If you would have asked me a few years ago i'd pick fd in a heart beat, but I have to put my family first (plus I really like my job, more than I would have thought).

    Not sure about how they assign you to a house.. As far as overtime goes, I'm sure there's always gonna be overtime for guys, but nothing like how the guys are getting it now. Everytime I talk to my brother he's working overtime cause he knows once they start hiring off our list it's gonna go away.As far as switching from being a cop to a fireman, alot of the guys in the 9th prec come into my job alot and they say the job sucked at first but as time went on they liked being a cop more and more. It's good you got options tho bud.

    So essentially what were looking at is this. The first class mad up of "promotions" will go to the rock in January. At that point they will begin with the OC list starting at one and going down as far as they need to so they can fill the next class. Oh boy this whole process is nothing more than a good guessing game. There's so many damn factors!

    Hey guys, I've been losing a little bit of sleep this past week and maybe one of you guys can help me. I got a pretty good list number (8xx) but I'm getting a little scared with all thus ratio talk. My medical is perfect, I work out 3 days a week and run on another 3 ( and I been doing this for years not just for this test), I have no criminal record other than moving violations from over a year ago, and I have never touched a drug. Should I be worried abouth this ratio talk?

    So i am somewhat satisfied with my score of 100, i had 2 many PC on the personality section. my list number is just about the same as it was on 6019 - 25XX... how long do you think it will be before they get around this number? .... I'm thinking 2 yrs max. as far as the CPAT - would you suggest running distance more, or doing stair work outs more?

    If you are who you say you are, no. Keep in mind the ratio's they use not only account for people who fail a part of the process but also includes people that are on the oc but are also promos, people who cant prove residency and most importantly people who just don't show up. Also remember that on list prior to 6019, guys had already taken the physical, so they didn't have to account for failures in their ratio's then.

    I think it would surprise most people the amount of people that don't follow thru for whatever the reason might be. Although this time around I'm sure most candidates are much more motivated.

    Okay. Thanks for the peace of mind. I agree with you that more people are motivated especially in the beginning of the list. Most of the folks around me are vets. I guess I'm going to be screwed in the academy lol.
