Unless we all take a statistics class together and have serious transparency, it would be hard to articulate. I think FFBAM made it pretty clear as did FDsouthBX.
Some people will make it to the top no matter what, deservingly, because they had the skill , but some got screwed out of a few points by not being familiar with last section, which was kept a secret to some to blunt cognitive skills by the vulcans and PSI. A few points went a long way and SOME results are blurred. Right under the vets and very top scorers people were screwed using statical shenanigans. I find it hard to believe you really thought I was referring to vets or legacy or EMS or deserving people in general, but point noted.
It is what it is, hopefully in a few years I will have a fair chance prove my self. Good luck you and the rest of the Veterans ,EMS, legacy and every one else at the very top, because you obviously did well and deserved your score. Some scored badly on the first sections and the last sections put them above some and thats what we find to be the problem. I am repeating myself and rambling now, so I will just wait it out as plenty of info is surfacing on this forum.
Way to go guy claiming the race card who helped the city make the most easiest test to man after 2002, who also now shows we cannot have transperancy. Without you're imput we'd have merit on the job. Slow clap for you sir, slow clap.
Considering all the efforts both the department and city have done for minority recruitment, nothing is more upsetting than seeing comments like this that are both uninformed and lacking any logical thought. Remember that it is DCAS a predominantly black organization that runs hiring for the FDNY and to think they would want to keep their own out? Remember the 1970's with their quotas, the 80's with the Vulcans issues supplying insider info, the 90's with 2million spent on minority recruiting, 9/11 with the biggest hiring pool in history, 2000 with the subtraction of outside CFR-D training, and now with the demise of merit testing and the promotion of points.
But it all points to a conspiracy to keep blacks and hispanics off the job. Maybe, just maybe they don't want it in the first place, or maybe just maybe, they didn't have high enough scores in a competitive environment to get on? Truly the race card is the easiet to play, and sadly only works for a few considering that Asian, Arabs, South Asians, Native Americans, and Eskimos are more underrepresented at city government levels.
You aren't seeing the big picture here at all.
And when a guy fights your fight for you, you can only pick out he didn't score high enough to be hired.
So pick up DJ's torch and make things right rather than be the g-d frakking skells you are showing yourselves to be.
This thread is getting out of hand. We losing focus on what the thread is meant for.
Does anyone know if the 2500 guys had to take the psych exam? I'm asking because i'm curious if they are going to compare the way you answer the psych questions with the way you answered the questions on the personality part of the exam.
"It is a sad fact of life. You try and sometimes fail.
And here is the important part: You move on. "
Not only does this apply to almostthere, but DJReverse and brooklynborn should heed bam's advice as well and move on so we can keep this forum an informative one.
I don't recall you answering the invite to the merit matters meeting and the ability for you to share your views with the group, you know, in person.
Now, on to important things.....
I do not believe that the exam 2500 candidates and to take the psych. Remember, they were FDNY employees already. What I can tell you is that they most CERTAINLY do not compare any answers with the exam you already took. That exam and the psych serve two completely different purposes.
Has anyone heard or read anything about the priority hire # being higher than the original 293?
