    The minorities from the old lists, do they have to just pass 2000? or score high? I guess this is a stupid question, because I am pretty sure they just have to pass.

    This Daily News article is sicking, trying to make their failures sound like hard work.
    oh you got an 80? wow they screwed you, lets give you a second chance because of the color of your skin. It's suck a set up, say anything about the quality of these people and you are a racist.

    Thank God I'm only 21. Anyone see the 38 y/o who has "always wanted to try firefighting"? We're mostly guys in our 20s who prepared physically and mentally for the past few years. This isn't something you do for a paycheck or because you wanna try your hand at being a fireman only because you're getting the chance. What about the guys on here who didn't score high enough? They're swallowing their pride and moving on, and preparing for their next shot. It's also scary that one day the guy next to us one day might be a 40 y/o rookie, not only lacking in experience, but unable to perform at the level a younger person might be able to.

    omg.. I do not normally post to message boards because I normally just lurk and check in every so often. But this really gets me boiling... from the Daily News article;
    "Latisha Davis: Not looking for special favors
    “I took the test in 1999. I was on public assistance and through the WEP program got placed in the FDNY’s recruiting department. The women firefighters really encouraged me to go for it, especially Brenda Berkman. She told me what a great job it is. I was helping the department recruit women to the job, so I thought, ‘Why not me?’ I missed the cutoff by five points. I was so disappointed."

    Does this woman realize that 5 points can either make or break you when it comes to open competitive exams??? It separates THOUSANDS of people. I took 6019 and got a 89, then took 2000 and got a 97. I did not get any additional points but I am not complaining. Do I wish I would have gotten perhaps a 98 or 99??? Hell yea but it is what it is. This was the first person on the article and after reading just that part I was fuming. Why the hell does race or color of skin matter??? I am Asian and I'm not looking for any handout. Im pretty sure the Asian numbers in the FDNY are by far less than Black and Hispanics. But there is no society that I know of that will point the finger because of race. It should NEVER be about RACE/SKIN COLOR...
    After reading about the other people in the Daily News article, I felt disgusted and sick. I have come to the conclusion that people cannot take blame on themselves. If you did not pass an exam or score high enough to become a FF, how is that the city's fault? Its the city's fault bc the exam was not written well enough for a person with a perhaps HS or GED reading level to understand?? Oh yea I forgot that the min requirements are at least 15 credits in COLLEGE. I have come to the conclusion that society is a bunch of "say-ers, not do-ers"

    Sorry for the negativity if any guys. But as I wait for the opportunity for my list # to be called, do not pause your life. Im gonna continue on as if I never took the exam but its perfectly ok to "Hold on to that DREAM" whatever it may be.

    I hear you man. Unfortunately contemporary society is one in which people are no longer expected to take responsibility for their own actions and performance, or lack thereof. Damn shame.

    To be fair, some of us have reached 30 since the fiasco that was 6019. I signed up for that test at 24, and here we still are. Don't sleep on us "old guys"!

    From the rant.

    funny how this little SCAM works. I am hispanic, I took 7029 and scored a 97. I passed my physical and I went through the entire proces until I got held up because I did not have CFR-D. I called everywhere to get the class and they were not easy to come by. I was already on the job down south, was on the Captains list and knew I'd get promoted within the year. I was ****ed I didnt get on back home because of a BS cert. But the rules are the rules. Later I took another test just to leave my options open, I took the written scored a 97 again (consistant) LOL. I never finished the process. I had 11 years on, was a Captain and my wife was not moving back. Then one day I get a letter saying I was discriminated against and may qualify for money or a job. I wrote a letter to the judge telling him he must be mistaking. I was given the same oppertunity as everyone else and I didnt wish to take part in this garbage. I then get a second letter saying that because I scored too high I wouldnt qualify for the money or even a job but I can send in my objection and ask to sit for this up and coming test. How the Hell can you say a hispanic who failed was discriminated against but one who passed was not, are we now putting minorities into groups. What a bunch of BULL ****!!!!!!!! sorry for the language. I was very unhappy that I was unable to find a CFR-D class. I looked all over NYS and none were available, all booked and were very few to choose from. I was coming from 750 south of NY so it wasnt like I could pack up and take a month off from work and make this happen. It also ****es me off that the very next test did away with CFR-D, but in no way does that mean I was discriminated against, nor was anyone else.
    you want to talk about having your back against the wall.... Move down south, be hispanic, make Captain in 9 years and be president of your Local for 6 years. This judge is a joke... sorry for the RANT, Thats All!!! be safe Brothers.

    Yea but there's a difference between you "old guys" who are on here obviously willing to do anything to get the job, and the folks who are getting a second chance and wanna "try it out." I'm sure there are many of you who could run circles around me haha

    Quick question just to get a consensus from guys OTJ. Paperwork/processing/swearing in day is tomorrow. Suit, money order, notebook, pen, and relevant documents/information is obvious. My question is just about everybody I know seems unsure as to whether or not we need our duffel bags with probie manuals, combination locks, duct tape, etc. for tomorrow. What's the deal?

    I ask because while I don't mind bringing it, I can see bringing all that extra stuff when you weren't told to being just as bad as not having it when you are supposed to.

    I'm very surprised that they didn't tell you what you needed to show up with. Go through any paper work again, call someone you know from that class and see if you're missing something. If you aren't and you still aren't sure, bring everything. That's going to be a motto for your career. It's better to get yelled at for doing SOMETHING wrong than for doing NOTHING. If you have too much stuff, things you don't need, it's a whole lot better than needing something and not having it. Bring everything, see what other people are doing that morning, what they're carrying. You'll figure it out, just be prepared for any scenario. Did you have to shave your heads yet??!!??

    My memory sucks, hence me being an idiot and asking here. Looks like I'll be bringing everything I've got. Head got shaved today... it's quite a different look for me.

    I'll be bringing everything and then I'll just see if people are walking in with a bag or not, the DI's weren't very clear about as to what day to bring the bags.

    Just curious about the priority hires. One guy scores and 88, and how exactly does that qualify as a priority. If you scored an 88 on 2000, or most of the previous exams, there is no way they would have reached your list number.

    The priority hires are a separate list than the OC list. They will take the same FDNY exam #2000 and only need a 70 to pass. A list of about 700ish priority hires who pass exam 2000, CPAT, Medical, Background etc. will be established of which up to 293 of those 700ish can be hired. It's expected that they will be processed for the summer 2013 class of which for every 5 candidates that FDNY hires 2 must be black and 1 hispanic from the priority hire list.

    I wonder if its 293 hired or 293 invited to the academy?
    I know they project only 10 percent of us to fail the academy, but something tells me the percentage of dropouts will be higher for the priority hires
