    does the CPAT orientation serve as any sort of work out? I feel like I'm still going to have to hit up the gym when I get home.

    The toes on the stepmill problem sucks. I've found if you can build stronger calfs that'll help because you won't need to land your whole foot on the stair each time then.

    Unless I am looking in the wrong place, I don't think the earnings statement you can get online is the same as the one FFwnt2b is referencing.

    I printed out what was available online, took it to the SS Office and asked if that is what the earnings statement was and she told me " yes, that it was the same thing they can printout for me"

Just make you the documents they have you to fill out are filled out properly. Mistakes are Ok, just make sure everything is filled out. Also, bring all originals with you of everything!
    Did they give you any concrete information as far as the academy start date, appointmenst for medicals, psych eval etc?

    This is the form for a social security detailed earnings statement, for 5 years it's $25.

    http://www.ssa.gov/online/ssa-7050.pdf


    I was able to get another form from the social security website, which was free. All the free one had is the year, and the money made. Is that what they're asking for?

    They want the one that cost money. PD does the same thing.

    Does any one know anything new about the court case?

    Just went back and talked to someone else and you are correct. There is an earnings statement (online) and a detailed earnings statement (have to pay for).

    Also just called CID they want the Detailed Earnings Statement.

    1. Fingerprint fee $75
    2. If ever arrested for a crime or received a summons other than a moving violation, bring: a) a complete notarized statement “explaining” the incident, and b) an original disposition from the court involved.
    3. Residency proof
    4. W2’s and social security detailed earnings statement for the past five years, plus a recent pay stub
    5. Proof of self employment
    6. Proof of unemployment
    7. High school diploma, or GED with scores
    8. Post-high school requirements (college transcript, 6 months full time employment, or active military with honorable discharge)
    9. Copy of Dept of Health birth certificate
    10. Record of any legal change of name
    11. Valid NYS drivers license
    12. Copy of Social Security card
    13. Marriage certificate, divorce or separation papers
    14. All correspondence regarding workman’s compensation claims
    15. Original discharge or separation papers from the military (DD-214) and/or veterans disability claims, and any disciplinary action paperwork you received
    16. Selective Service Registration record (www.sss.gov(http://www.sss.gov/)). If active Reservist, unit name and address17. BP-51 and DP-2488 questionnaire signed and notarized (these are FDNY forms, you’ll get them with your packages)
    18. 2x2 inch photo in business attire
    19. Signed education and employment consent forms (you’ll get these forms from FDNY, also).

    No. This is a list I posted a while back on what we needed for 6019. Use it as reference (you'll likely need it all pretty soon) but the only things you NEED for the initial intake are the things the letter from CID tells you you'll need.

    Why does your entire foot need to be on the step? You can step just as effectively with some of your heel hanging off so your toe isn't crunched.

    Also nows a good time to remember the CPAT isn't that hard.

    Were those part time jobs legal ones where you still had taxes taken out and such? If so, they'll show up on the SS statement.

    SS Earnings statements don't work off your tax returns so don't expect 2012 to be updated for some time. Your employer has to have the W-2 to SS by Feb 28th but it can take them 6+ months to log it into the system. That's a good call going 2007-2011 because you could be in the academy before SS gets around to it.

    Yes, if they were taxed, they are listed.
    Also true on the step mill, one thing I hate is that the steps move slow, I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. It feels like you have to slow your pace down, and you can't get in a rythem. But if you are in shape, should be doable.

    If you practice at that pace enough you will gain a rhythm, albeit a slow one.

    It's a stepmill. One foot after the other.
    It's not rocket science.
