    Sorry to say, but the attitude from some guys here is that hiring them is inevitable and we should accept this assault on all of the hard work we've put in ourselves.

    Stand-up for merit.
    Free loaders, nice term. what other term can you come up with?!!

    Always have a second, third, fourth option in life. Of course go for it, just in case.

    Almost there. No need to reply to every single post in the forum. You will have 20 years to talk about it.

    Come to a Merit Matters meeting, they said they want people who disagree with them to show up and speak their mind. I assure you they will treat with you respect, but be prepared to speak your mind and explain your position. If you show up, you have my respect, assuming you care.

    1- No, I don't care if you respect me or not. Who are you!!

    2- I am going for the ride in regards too this lawsuit. If I was in your shoes I will somewhat feel the same way. I will feel cheated, etc. But, I would not assume that someone is not capable of performing any duty or wish ill will based on an uncontrollable situation.

    3- I have class tonight

    4- LOL at they will treat me with respect. WHATEVER

    5- This is a message broad, why should I only be required to reply to a certain amount of post. STOP IT.

    I really hope you are a female. Because your responses to Jukez is suspect.

    I didn't say you needed my respect, nor that you wanted it, thats why I worded it the way I did.
    But you do seem to be hung up on others "respect" since you quoted and replied to several comments.
    You can post as much and often as you like, I was just saying that the meeting tonight would be a better Forum for the disscusion. I think you took my post as negative or sarcastic, when it wasn't meant to be. I realise your position and there is no point in me being negative about it, nothing I can change via this message board.

    More than likely, you haven't read most of my post or you are so emotional that you are taking what I say out of content .What is the purpose of debating when there is nothing to debate about. Post one post of mine stating that I disagree with you guys on the hiring process/lawsuit. All my post was in regards too, the negative attacks that where posted on here, such as (The priority hires are not intelligent enough to have this job, not capable of performing this job, are FREELOADERS, ETC.) Come on, stop inviting me to a conference where nothing will be resolved. I am still going to pursue this opportunity to become a firefighter. I wanted to be one since high school, this is why I took to test in 2002, passed the test, passed the cpat and went on an interview.

    You do realise that you will be taking the job from others who scored higher than you but unfortunatly are not the right Color? Literally one person will not be hired because you took his spot.

    You said you have class, whats the point of going to school?

    You can't be serious to ask such a silly question. What is the purpose of going to school. If I have to answer that for you, than you have a problem.

    I have no idea. after the intake interview, I didn't here back from them. I called, never got a call back. I even went up there to talk to my investigator and he wasn't helpful at all. So, i just took it as a close and moved on.

    The point of school is to educate yourself so that you can compete for a job, correct?

    Ok i would go but again why? I was happy with my position on 6019 and I'm happy with my position now. Why drive drive all the way to the bronx to argue something you can't change. As a candidate you take the test in front of you and hope you prepared well enough to get hired. What are you angry about? Do you have cousins or nephews thatdidn't well on 2000? Regardless of the testing methods the academy still stands and every ff has to go through it.

    1- I always make sure that I have options in life. And one of them is to have as much credential as I can.

    2- I have kids. I have to be a role model to them and that entails being an educated man who believes education is the foundation for success. Most kids follow their parents foot steps, so hopefully my success in school will motivate them to follow the same path.

    3- I like to challenge myself. So, after I get my Master's degree, I am going to pursue my PHD. So, if I am hired as a firefighter, this job will not obstruct my path and reaching that goal.

    4- If I am not mistaken one of you guys said you where pursing a degree in chemical engineering. That person was not questioned, what is the point.
