    This is what I got off the Facebook Merit Matters page: "I've heard there are appx 400 people on a list of "discriminated candidates" from which a maximum of 293 candidates (it COULD be 293, it could be 50 after they go through Exam 2000, the physical, the medical, psychological and background checks) would be put onto a list and merged into other incoming classes."

    So heard back from DCAS today regarding my appeal, said nothing about how they scored just that they checked the algorythms and everything checked out and that they will hold a TVB going over how the protests were reached, guess what folks, no information or answer key was released; we now have a MAJOR issue!

    kind of a slap in the face to the OC guys, after all these years of court visits, and bs, that they hire medics first. just sayin. good luck though.

    Hopefully someone from EMS or OTJ already can answer this. I used to use a protein powder that I really liked called Sun Warrior. Good stuff made from vegetables and didn't bloat or weigh you down. Problem was, it has hemp seed in it. When I got my # I stopped, wondering if that would test me positive for a drug test. Can anyone add to this a bit? Should I not use it again? Same thing with hemp seed soap. I'm kind of a hippie when it comes to that stuff haha, but I'd lose my mind if I failed the drug test because of something so f*cking stupid.

    okay i had this same concern(I was a vegan; will go back to it ). I think its like 1% of people will test positive if using hemp protein. It was enough for me not to use hemp knowing that I had FDNY drug test coming up. Even if the number was as low as 1 in 10,000, didnt want to chance it. I dont remember the exact number Im sure you can look it up with a simple google search.

    I did find something that taste great and doesnt seem to give me that bloated feeling. It uses soy and whey(im not thrilled about whey) but its pretty much as good as it gets at the price. http://bolthouse.com/product/proteinplusmango . You can find them at target. They cost less than 4 bucks for a 32oz bottle. I have 16oz a day. So for less than 2 bucks a day i get a pretty good protien shake.

    Thanks a lot dude appreciate it. Yea I read the chances are really low too but it's not worth the risk. And $2 bucks a shake pretty much equates to Sun Warrior shakes too so I'll def try it out. When you get the chance try out some of their stuff you'd probably like it (after the drug tests of course haha).

    Issue is they have not provided a answer key or way of showing us as candidates how the test was scored, more over how they arrived at rounding up or down of our list numbers. They are going to provide a Test Validation Board but does little to quell our fears that this test was rushed through and that they did properly go over our protests but rather used their tribunal to be the end all of protested questions. It means the over 5,000 or who appealed their scores still have more questions than answers; and that this test is becoming and looking more rigged than first thought.

    No answer key, is this standard procedure with PSI? I would think that could be a good place to start. If PSI normally puts out an answer key, but for this test they aren't, there's obviously an inconsistency there. If this is how PSI operates though, that could be a problem.

    Question. When an EMT/Paramedic drops out of the academy, are they allowed to return to EMS or are they out of a job?

    On a latter note. Waiting on this packet in the mail is torture.
