    Funny. Those exact words come out my mouth all the time. Just by you saying that I believe you when you say you might be in better conditioning than alot of people here. Still doesn't make it right though.

I explained to him he'll have to explain how he's been working in Baltimore for 4 years but a resident of NYC. Got the deer in the headlights look! Like a few others on here, I came up short on list 2043 and 6019 well, we all know about that circus. I'm hoping persistence and the fact I've done everything with integrity will pay off in the future. Keep your heads up and stay positive! I live right next to astoria park and run there on the regular if anyone wants to join.
    You've got to be kidding me that someone did that?!

    You eat and sleep right, and TRAIN HARD to get through the academy.

    Doesn't it say in the packet what you need to bring?

    The investigation meeting is really simple. You show up, they talk to you a bit, then you get assigned an investigator. That person goes over what documents you've brought, and then explains what (if anything) you might also need to provide to them. You're fingerprinted, and that's it. Wear a suit. I believe you need a money order for the fingerprinting, so make sure you bring that. It's not the end of the world if you don't have all of the necessary documents on that date, but you'll have to mail or hand deliver anything else needed so it's obviously in your best interest to try and get as much of it done now as possible.

    the join fdny page told someone to dress "business casual" to the cpat orientation. This can't be the case though, right?

    The background investigation meeting (whatever is in March) isn't the same as CPAT orientation. Business casual to me would be nice pants, button up shirt and tie. Because I'm a slob that's never worked any real jobs besides EMS, I don't have a lot of business casual, or even many suits, so business casual for me has always meant I just throw on my cheap suit. Do whatever pleases you. No one is going to yell at you for being over dressed.

    Ya I know the two meetings are different, but I figured for the CPAT orientation we would dress in athletic clothes, not business casual. I figured we'd need a suit for the investigation meeting.

    any vets here who got your packets a few questions


    1-you dont list military as employment correct? that just stays in the mil section
    2-for residencese you lived in the past ten years if on active duty you can give the base you lived on if you didnt live on the economy

    another thing, i worked in a grocery store for a while in hs then went to college for a semester then the military, i plan on listing the store but dont remmeber any of my managers. it was almost 13 years ago. my employment history isnt to extensive, when i got out of the cg i worked for a company for about 2 years and decided i better get back in school and get some credits so ive been on the post 9-11 gi bill which pays me more than if i was to work anyplace(for the most part) will my lack of employment reflect negatively?

    I know of several out of state people, on the list, claiming residency. I suspect there will be a lot of people claiming residency that don't and haven't lived in the city.

    So, I've been in the Dominican Republic, visiting my girlfriend's family since early yesterday. Before I left, like a lot of you, I received the email about the cpat orientation. That was some decent news.

    Since I've been here, I have eaten all fresh food. Fresh pork. Fresh chicken. Fresh eggs. Seriously, we went into the country side and got it from my girlfriend's family. The meals have been unbelievable. They make everything from scratch. And the fruit, my gosh.

    I also have been training, in the mornings. The weather in in the low 80's and it hasn't too humid. Her family took me to a local college to run. They have a dirt track and pull bars, dips bars and parallel bars. I drink coconut water right from the coconut.To top it off, her mother is paying a masseuse to come to the house to give me a massage each day after I train. I also have swam in a beautiful mountain creek. And ridden horseback.

    Now, I'm figuring I have a packet (2xx) waiting at home. I don't return for a few days yet. I see someone said you have to confirm the 'interview' date. Is there a deadline for that call?

    Is it true that the number 1 guy on the promotion lust dropped out because he was scared to go in smoke house?
