    As much as I can't stand the priority hires, I really wish they just go in the academy already. The worse that happens is we lose 293 spots.

    If the second circuit overrule judge *******, the worse that can happen will be 6019 again.

    It blows my mind that a) people don't meet the physical requirements for this and b) people are sticking up for them. 30 sit-ups in a minute is not hard. Especially when you've had a year plus to prep. Stop making excuses and get it done.

    It is SO, SO much more than just 293 spots. That's definitely not the worst thing that happens.

    How is the FDNY ACADEMY COMPARED TO THE NYPD ACADEMY? I know there are plenty of guys that have done both

    Meaning 293 guys from the OC list who have a passion and would do anything for the job would not get it.

Of course, if justice is ACTUALLY served and hiring goes in merit based rank order, that could change.
    Are you hearing there will be more than 2 classes per year? The way I read the above quote I think you're implying a 2nd class this summer, and a 3rd class before year-end with a mix of promotional/OC/possibly priority hires before an all OC class in early 2014.

    Let justice be served.

    Look, I understand you're anxious to get into the academy, but this is a frighteningly short sighted outlook. It's not 293 schleps....its principal and a slap in the face to nearly 150 years of dedicated service. If hiring has to be delayed to prevent these no good freeloaders from joining the ranks, so be it. That might be hard to swallow, but when you do get on, you'll be joining a job with a stronger future and better present.

    It's not about how many classes they'll have a year. If they intend to run the schedule as they did in the past, there won't be any downtime. They'll run one academy after the other. That means you'll see a new academy class every 18 weeks, give or take.

    Couldn't agree more - from someone who would've been hired in '08, I don't want to eventually get into a dept with guys and girls that never earned the spots. It's a disgrace and even worse, dangerous.

    Just because you score higher on a test doesn't mean you would be a better firefighter then anyone who scored lower than you, BUT me being someone who would have also gotten hired in 08' it would just **** me the F.ck off that someone who scored less then me would get hired first.

    BY the way I got curious and tried to do 30 sit ups in 1 min so I made my brother grab my feet hands locked behind my head, elbows to knees... And failed. I did 26 sit ups in 37 secs but then had to go take a crap so I stopped. I guess I would be in remedial too

    Sorry but when people are scoring as low as these people did the first time, I would feel nervous letting them park my car never mind having my back in a life or death situation.

    What do you expect when the physical is pass/fail? This is no shock to me. This is the breed of people fdny wants in the department nowadays.

    ...and someone who scores better on the SAT isn't necessarily a better college student, yet we use that as the admissions measuring stick. It's a test, you get a score, higher=better. Such is life......the only people that don't like the measuring stick are whiny Vulcans.

    True. I feel like any comment we make will make us look like that kid making burgers at McDonald's talking about how he's going to be driving a Rolls one day.

    We won't know until we're there. Armchair quarterbacking, I think they call it. Until we are there, we should appreciate any advice/insight they give us.

    Agreed dude. The media covering it, along with the people retaking it don't understand that "a strong candidate" signifies someone actually in contention for the job. Not someone who obtained a 90. 90 may have been fantastic on a 10th grade English midterm, but in this context, it separates about 15,000 people, literally. If you want a job where all you need to do is pass to get called, take the PD exam. (no knock on cops, but kind of still haha.)

    Does anyone know what tier the 318 guys are part off? Is it Tier 6 or were they in a different Tier while working as an EMT? I guess a better question is what Tier will the OC guys and Gals be in? What are the major changes to Tier 6?
