    Good luck to all you guys getting packets lets get this thing started.

    IIRC don't the priority hires have the option of taking the job, or taking a lump sum for backpayment?

    You gotta think the majority are gonna just take the money and run. Just my .02.

    Everyone (except maybe Jukez) should consider going to the CPAT training. Beyond just running through the course you'll get extra work that will help you prepare for what PT/FST will be like in the academy. Also the training is run by the Health & Fitness staff (the guys who do PT/FST). They're very knowledgeable and helpful. I wish I had gone to more, but I had some mitigating circumstances that made it difficult to get there.

    Also with a grand total of 3 weeks under my belt all I can say is that I'm quite sure the department has no plans to make the academy easier for the priority hires, and that it will eat many of them alive.

    I am sure my conditioning is better than most on here. I don't workout only based on an academy I will be in soon. It is a lifestyle for me. Yes, I received my packet today.

    I'm sure you're the pinnacle of fitness, hell, you've been training day in and day out for this for the last 10 years. I hope you have a great time at the academy, im sure you'll do great, we're all pulling for you.

    Funny. Those exact words come out my mouth all the time. Just by you saying that I believe you when you say you might be in better conditioning than alot of people here. Still doesn't make it right though.

I explained to him he'll have to explain how he's been working in Baltimore for 4 years but a resident of NYC. Got the deer in the headlights look! Like a few others on here, I came up short on list 2043 and 6019 well, we all know about that circus. I'm hoping persistence and the fact I've done everything with integrity will pay off in the future. Keep your heads up and stay positive! I live right next to astoria park and run there on the regular if anyone wants to join.
    You've got to be kidding me that someone did that?!

    You eat and sleep right, and TRAIN HARD to get through the academy.

    Doesn't it say in the packet what you need to bring?

    The investigation meeting is really simple. You show up, they talk to you a bit, then you get assigned an investigator. That person goes over what documents you've brought, and then explains what (if anything) you might also need to provide to them. You're fingerprinted, and that's it. Wear a suit. I believe you need a money order for the fingerprinting, so make sure you bring that. It's not the end of the world if you don't have all of the necessary documents on that date, but you'll have to mail or hand deliver anything else needed so it's obviously in your best interest to try and get as much of it done now as possible.

    the join fdny page told someone to dress "business casual" to the cpat orientation. This can't be the case though, right?

    The background investigation meeting (whatever is in March) isn't the same as CPAT orientation. Business casual to me would be nice pants, button up shirt and tie. Because I'm a slob that's never worked any real jobs besides EMS, I don't have a lot of business casual, or even many suits, so business casual for me has always meant I just throw on my cheap suit. Do whatever pleases you. No one is going to yell at you for being over dressed.
