    Between the cost, and the relatively fast healing time, I would not consider corrective eye surgery just for this job, until you are told you need it by a doctor at HQ. Do it for yourself if you really want it and have the money, but you can definitely wait till your medical to get it done, especially if there's any truth to the rumor stated above.

    If I'm going to the court to postpone jury duty this week, do you guys think I should just pick up my summons copy for background? I'm at #21xx. Figured I could kill two birds with one stone and start gathering the pain in the *** paperwork now.

    I have the 50# vest and extra 25# addon from http://weightvest.com/. Can't say I've used it much, is in good shape, PM me if that model interests you.

I'd go out on a limb to say that most adults living in NYC in a given year could scrounge up plenty more than the minimum three from the required list. It also makes it fairer than the process has been in the past by making it harder for people to cheat on residency credit.
    They're VERY specific... The thing I read specifically mentioned the paperwork that needed to have your name on it... I assumed where it wasn't mentioned it wasn't required... But you know what they say about assuming... I have paper work going back to like 05' thats gonna be a bitch to find but Im gonna start digging asap... I need an effin secretary gahhh

    Dude just call up your bank and order those statements. Same thing from the CC accounts you have. The W-2s if you don't have it order then from your HR at your job. Simple!

    I'd be pretty worried if I were you guys.....
    .....those guys have been running stairs for the past 13 years just WAITING for the bright light of justice to shed light on their plight!

    How'd you like the rhyme? Just like Rev. Al, right?

    Not for nothing but I bet any of you guys with **** list numbers would take that opportunity if it was offered to you, I know I would if I was in their position. Just because someone might end up benefiting from the Vulcan lawsuit doesn't mean they agree with it or care. They also were not the ones who decided the city should have 293 priority hires, that was our friend the judge.

    While it'll be a pretty sweet package for the guys who get that, I feel bad for them in a way because they will have to prove themselves quite a bit more than regular candidates, due to the stigma.

    No, because I'm not hired because I earned but rather because I represent it. And yes I have a bad list number.

    no, don't get it. They may request a report with a date of print closer to the date of your meeting with your investigator. Wait until our asked so you do not waste your time.

    I am not sure that's true. You need an Honorable for it to qualify as work experience or for Veteran's Credit, and a Dishonorable disqualifies you. However, I have not found anywhere that you are DQ'ed for other discharges (Other Than Honorable, General, etc).

    Agree with you. If you claim veterans points you need a honorable. If you don't claim them then it shouldn't matter what you have. It would be like being DQd for being fired from any other job.

    Wait are you suggesting that one can be DQ'd for being fired from a job in the past? Or am I reading that incorrectly?

    I disagree. Get it. The disposition date on the charge is what is important, not necessarily the printout date of the document. Since you'll already be there, I'd get it - it's probably somewhere between free and five bucks. It doesn't hurt to have that stuff in your records, anyway. If your investigator wants a new one, deal with that then. At least you'll go to your interview prepared.
