    When were the candidates from the promotional exam first notified to begin processing such as the 12 - week CPAT course?

    Was it in August or September?

    I've got a family and would be leaving top pay to make the switch. So, I kind of have to be concerned with that.

    Dude I wouldnt worry to much about your list number... they ran thru 870 EMS guys and maybe got 220 (and thats if all of them pass CPAT). They will get up to 7000 for sure. I know the city said they will hire 2400 but i actually think it will be more than that. If 50 retire per month thats 2400 in 4 years and add the 650 FF short as it is and thats 3000 new hires. You'll be alright.
    Test: 2000
    Score: 102
    List: 8XX

    that may be a conflict because as a reservist you will go straight to a-school before guys AD. either yorktown or petaluma depending what you wanna do...not e-city cuz reservists cant do aviation rates. anyway if you didnt make the push for a direct a-school out of boot then you would be a proby and a seamen at the same time....alot of toilets to clean, i was 4 yrs ad at airsta borinquen in aguadilla puerto rico and reserve its alot of fun the education benefits are great and you work with a great group of guys . i would say try and do it, if its something you want

    if we both get called there a good chance we could be in the academy together

    here is what the city has came out and said

    TEST RESULTS
    Of the 41,764 people who took the Open Competitive exam, 40,864 passed. However, in light of our hiring needs over the next four years, we expect that – in addition to those who took and passed the promotional exam (870) – only those candidates who scored a 97 or above on the Open Competitive exam (8,548) have a likelihood of being considered for appointment.
    Breakdown of Likely Hires by ethnicity – 9,417 Total (869 Promotional added to 8,548 Open Competitive list)
     White
     Hispanic
     Black
     Asian
     Other
    5,045 total (53.5%) 2,131 total (22.6%) 1,859 total (19.7%)
    351 total (3.7%) 31
    Breakdown of Likely Hires by Gender – 9,417 total
     Male 8,980 total (95.3%)
     Female 437 total (4.6%)
    [It’s worth noting that the total percentage of minorities on this likely-to-be considered list (46%) is nearly identical to the percentage that took the Open Competitive exam (45.7%)].

    Even the guys on the job don't always know what they're talking about.

    Case in point:

    “The cost of a probie firefighter is far less than paying overtime,” said Rush. Stephen Rush is a FDNY Assistant Commissioner in charge of Budget and Finance. You couldn't have a more credible source than the man who crunches the numbers for a living and was put on the stand by city attorneys to prove this to Garaufis.

    I appreciate your valuable input Les....didn't think i'd hear from a coastie...I'm thinking MK and as far as A-school goes...AD wait time for that school is 9-12 months right now...not sure about reservists..I'll ask my recruiter about it, before I received my scores I was going to go AD with the guard but considering I just got married and I want the best of both world..I think FF as my primary occupation is the best deal while i pick up some other skills and reap the benefits...those education benefits could come in handy when I go for my masters in a field where i can get per diem work on the side...Again thank you man.
