    Exactly, that's the sure way in if you really want the job

    Again, guys like victim could have tried for the ems route years ago, instead of banking on doing well on the next exam.

    I agree man. Not trying to make excuses for anybody. I didn't mean for it to come off that way, and I think I in fact read the dude's comment incorrectly.

    Carry on...

    It all depends how much you want it. A 70 on the promo beats a 118 on the oc

    Actually attending the court meetings it is those that could qualify for those exams, who can be hired off of these ones currently. Meaning this, if you were 18 in 99 in 09 you were 28 meaning you have easily a chance to be hired, also just because they have jobs now doesn't mean they want to keep them. I took a test in VA last month and the number of office workers looking to leave was astonishing, it was even more amazing considering the amount actually outnumbered fire fighters, both volunteer and career who took that test to be given a better position with a better job. Also some people have been physically fit for years, if you're thinking this will be like Chicago with 40 to 50 year olds being hired, you are incorrect.

    Problem is where they are coming from. Most of these priority hires are from the city itself, meaning that this hurts those minority candidates who spent time and money from out of city/state for a chance on the job. Even better is that they themselves feel entitled due to race and not their score itself, remember most of these groups had two scoring systems, both the written and the physical, compared to 6019 and 2000 who just have the writen. So you could get a 99 on the written but fail an event on the physical and kill your chances. Hence why they have done it this way now.

    Also Manhattan Medic all those being denied a job due to being over age, what races are they?

Like manhattan medic said there are strict physical and medical requirements for the job title as firefighter. Not given a change due to age is unfair especially when 5 years were taken away from 6019 candidates. No one will understand unless they are in that position. Greed and selfishness will overcome ones true feelings about the situation bc everyone wants the job. So if it doesn't benefit them they could care less.
    Age cutoffs are a discrimination that the city is allowed to do for jobs like this, and many others have tested the waters there before. The courts have upheld the system.

    Congrats and good luck.

    Do you have any tangible evidence or have you heard of letters going out soon to guys on the OC?

    Back wouldn't be so much a problem but the meds for depression might be.

    So the city might go ahead and start going by list number order on the open competitive list? This would be amazing news, but didn't judge Garaufis threaten "sanctions" if the city didn't start with the 293 priority jerks?

    I would've thought the second circuit court would have to rule before they could start processing past the EMS promos one way or another? Maybe they are allowed to hire how they want while the appeal is still pending?
    List # 12XX

    Yeap I believe they are allowed to go ahead with the OC class until they figure out what the ruling on the priority hiring is. Also I spoke to an OTJ liutenant and he told me the priority hires are not going in altogether in one academy. They will be spinkled in here and there. Dont know whats the validity to any of this info tho.
    Test: 2000
    Score: 102
    List: 8XX

    The judge specified a quota system to slowly bring in the 293. Something like 1-2 out of every 5 or something like that.

    I've heard different rumor mill stuff saying that the january class is pretty much all wrapped up, or that they may be publishing a list who's going in as soon as the next 1-2 weeks. Exciting ****.
