    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.

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.
    Turn on your private messages please. I haven't been scheduled for my medical yet, got a few questions for ya.

    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.

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

    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

    It was DEFINITELY the heart rate, I met an EMT today that was in pretty good shape that failed strictly because of his heart. He told me more than half of the guys he was getting screened with failed the stair master, and this is what I'm hearing constantly from multiple people, including the group I went with. I'm 5'11, 175 pounds and have been training on the stair master with a vest off and on for 2 years. One of the other guys I saw pass was about 215 pounds and looked out of shape but he passed, most are failing but you'd be surprised with some of the people that have passed.

    What I can tell you WITHOUT A DOUBT is that the stair master is ALL ABOUT BREATH CONTROL, I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. If you belong to a gym with a stair-master and have any means of monitoring your heart-rate simultaneously, you will notice the faster you breath the higher your heart rate will go and vice-versa.

    My time WITH the 50 pound vest was actually 10 points lower than without all because I was actually controlling my breathing.

    Great list number. I'm not sure what the vision requirements are but I myself had corrective eye surgery done during the summer of 2011 for the purpose of passing this exam.

    It being a requirement is really based on your eyes, only you know how good/bad they are. What I can say is that I was not even a candidate for lasik because my cornea was too thin, I suggest at least getting a free consultation and seeing if you qualify for the surgery. I had to get PRK, an older form of corrective surgery which has a much longer recovery time.

    With a list number like that it'd be a shame to be DQ'd over something you currently have control over.

    I'd suggest the surgery, which is worth it regardless. If you decide you don't want to shell out the cash just yet just get a consultation to see if you qualify for the surgery if need be.

    yes a little more than %50 of people are currently failing the stair-master the FIRST time, but they all have a chance to come back in one month and just do the stair-master again or ultimately for 8 minutes in which I know ALOT more people will pass fine.
    Of course I base this purely upon estimation but I think it will take more than two years.
