    I am in the same boat as Big Griff. The way the military points page was written in said to receive military points you had to be a residence of NY state at the time of appointment. But what appointment? The 2000 list appointment or the appointment to the job? Doesn't sound like if you are an out of state resident you will get military points. Anyone have any experience with this?

    I called DCAS and got transfered to the FDNY personel dept..and the man who answered, who wasn't helpful at all, defined "appointment" as starting the academy..now, considering that myself being from out of state would have to live not only in NYS, but in NYC or 1 of the surrounding counties at the time of "appointment" he said that to follow it as it is written..and since the deffienition of "appointment" is the start of the academy in order for me to even start the job I would have to comply. Technicalities..but thats what I got. If you called, im sure you may get something different...also like I said earlier, I saw the scores from 6019 and some of those that claimed veteran/disabled veteran points did not claim residency status but if it says that then thats how I'm taking it....I checked box for "disabled Veteran" because if The points get me " appointed" I'll be living in the city..If the points don't get me hired then I guess it really dosn't matter..ya know?

    In reading the other FDNY thread, I had no idea they were having race issues and lawsuits with their exam process, too. Same thing's been going on here in Chicago the past 15 years on and off and that got dealt a terrible ruling a month or two back. Guess you can't escape it no matter where you go.

    Thanks Mom.

    WHAT I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND.... *pause* is...

    HISTORICALLY, what is the lowest possible score one can get and still have a chance at getting hired? 99, 98, 97? That is if, someone takes the test who doesn't have any preference and misses only one question, do they stand a chance? Or is even scoring 100 not enough.


    Catch my drift?

    Question? I know usually civil service exams are pretty easy and common sense, but does anyone know when they would come out with a study guide or some sort? I just would like to have an idea of what would be on the exam just in case i need to brush up on some stuff. Also, I know on the previous exams they would hold sessions like tutorials prepping you for the exam, I wonder if they are doing that for this exam?

    they will have those free classes eventually but as of right now they are not announced. I don't think many people know exactly what the test is like yet.

    Your question was answered. 100.13 was the score of the last list number reached for the hires of 6019. There will literally be tens of thousands of people taking the exam. Many of these applicants will have one or both of the credits. If you have no credits, you cannot afford to get anything less than 100% of the test correct

    To get the veteran's credit, you do need to be a NY State resident. I believe also it would have to be established at the same time as the City Residency for it to be accepted.

    Yes. This has got to be illegal. Who's talking to the pro bono lawyers?

    The special consideration said that in order to qualify for Veterans/disabled Veterans points you need to be a resident of NYS by the time of appointment or promotion..
    That is the same requirement as getting the job..in order for hiring you need to be a resident prior to appointment..It did not state a specific time line like the residency credit..

    It's not that the FDNY didn't aspire to look past #886 but due to budgeting woes then a strangle hold on hiring by a judge who wanted a quota based hiring system the mayor decided to not hire at all if hiring wasn't based on merit. List #6019 only seen one class hired way back in July 2008 i believe. Another class was prepped and ready to go (and still is IMO) but we're still waiting for a final decision from this judge. There are a few news articles which sum up the last few years if your looking to do research, just search under "FDNY disparate impact," that should do the trick.

    Although there may be many that get both credits, that doesn't necessarily mean that those same people will get perfect scores. Sleepy Hollow can probably help me out on this, if I recall correctly, on 6019, I think there was only 1200-1300 list numbers with a score of 100 of better.

    If the physical portion of the test does increase in difficulty, are they looking to increase the mental and physcial aspects or just the physical. Will they change from an obstacle course to an endurance test? Right now, I like the CPAT because it makes you use your brain and follow directions while you are tired unlike its counter-test of "run this far, do this many push ups."
