    So that guy with the 103 that lied about his residency isn't going down to 98 and getting a 2nd chance to get hired later in the life of the list. He's gone for good, at least according to the NOE.
    You didn't quote the entire thing

    Eligibilityfortheresidencycreditwillbeinvestigated andverifiedbytheFireDepartmentofNewYork.

    Inability to produce the required verification of residency documents for the continuous period of residency will result in the forfeiture of the New York City Residency Credit and an adjustment in the final score. Under no circumstances shall a Post Office (P.O. Box) address be accepted as proof of residency. As in the case of any intentional misrepresentation of a material fact on an employment application, candidates who claim New York City Residency Credit and who are determined to have intentionally misrepresented facts concerning New York City residency shall be terminated if they have already been appointed and/or disqualified and their names shall be removed from the eligible list, and they may be subject to criminal sanctions.

    There going to bump people down not throw them off but I'm my friends cases it won't make a difference My friend going from a 98 to a 93 is basically getting thrown off because there never gonna reach him

    I would guess that most of those people would pretend they lived in NYC but just dont have the proper documentation. So I doubt they will be throwing people off unless they see fake documents or something.

    I don't know. The guy with a drivers license, W-2 and bank statements that all say some address in Nassau County but he clicked yes for the residency credit and hoped he would get away with it - to me that's an intentional misrepresentation and should be dealt with accordingly.

    Perhaps they see an intentional misrepresentation as you have all the required documents because you use your aunt's address in NYC, but when the investigator goes to make a visit your aunt's neighbors all say they have never seen you there.

    Who knows, I guess we will find out eventually!

    Yea no one knows for sure I think a lot of people in range are going to lose points or get kicked off because its going to be a lot harder to prove this time around

    What's up fellas, I've been lurking this thread since its inception and I must say I've gotten a lot of good information from it so I figured it's about time I contribute any info I can.

    I actually went through my medical on 10/31 and I passed. Out of 11 guys (so few showed up bc of the hurricane) only 3 or 4 passed, and from what I've heard all the days that have followed have garnered a failure rate of more than %50. Hope you guys that are serious about this are doing what you can about your heart rate.

    My investigator also has everything they need, so as far as I know I'm only waiting for my CPAT date.

    If you were not charged with a felony then you are not automatically disqualified. Your investigator will take into account how long it has been since your robber offense and if you have repeated the same offense again. Also they take into account everything that shows the type of person you are including but not limited to your summons, misdemeanors, driving violations, school records, drinking history, psychological state etc. and even check your social media. Those are all factors that they look at to determine if your character fits the job description but they are definitely going to question you intensively about the robber offense so be prepared to speak about it and show that you have changed.

    Manhattan or Brooklyn medic, do you know if you guys are allowed to take both exams on the oc and promo list? Because I found one guy who is an FDNY emt for sure and his name is on both lists. On the promo he got a 98 and on the oc he got 103.
    I will not tire, I will not falter, and I will not fail!!!

    Yes, I did. We just filed for both. You can not get residency credit on a promotion, but can claim it for the OC.

    Wow, that's good now you guys that do make it in the first class, benefits people like me on the oc list because by June you guys will be firefighters already lol. One less thing I gotta worry about I guess.

    How does that really benefit you? The fact that a few dozen names on the OC are duplicates?

    I know of an EMT that will likely get hired off the OC before he is eligible for the promotion, due to the 2 year requirement. And that is just about the only advantage to doing both lists.

    This is just my advice so feel free to ignore it, but with a list number in the 7000's you and everyone else in that range probably have a good 2-3 years before getting called so worrying about a handful of numbers from the first or second class is getting ahead of the game. My suggestion is to look at your process like a marathon - don't blow your load getting all anxious and excited on mile one. You've got time, just stay in shape and stay OUT of trouble, check in on the thread from time to time to stay informed, and go about your life. Otherwise you're just going to drive yourself crazy waaaaay before you even get to the Rock, much less on the job.

    Thanks for the advice dude. From what you know was it the heart rate thing that makes or breaks it for someone who is in shape and training? Or did the other guys seem to not be in shape altogether?

    hey guys i have a few quick questions.. first of all i got a 96 on the test with a list number around 11,800s.. at first when i found this out i thought there was no chance in hell of getting a call.. i know the commissioner said he was going to hire at a rate of 600 for 4 years totaling 2400.. he said he would be hiring at a 1:3 ratio i believe i read.. what exactly does that mean is he estimating out of every 3 people called 1 will end up being hired? or will 1 HAVE to be hired? i dont understand.. my good friend was talking to a bunch of FF's and he told them my situation and they said i should be expecting a call in 2 years or so.. i read what one of you guys wrote about more than 50% of people failing the medical and if that is the case i think i can see myself getting a call.. i just want your guys opinion on what you think my chances are

    the 1 in 3 is a estimate of how many people it will take to get one body in the academy

    and the city said they might get up to list number 8500. i personally think all the numbers the city put out are conservative but no one knows for sure but if i were in your shoes i wouldn't be expecting to be called at all but hoping for the best

    also on list 6019 it was closer to a 1 in 4 ratio. they previous never reached passed list number 6500 but they are currently down 600+ people and this will be the first list to use a pass/fail (besides the one class of 6019) physical. i think this means that more people will fail the stair master of the medical
