    Does anyone know the date the list 2000 was established? That is, if it even officially has been established yet.

    It was mentioned yesterday that the TENTATIVE date for the July class is the 29th, and in the opinion of the instructor (so not set in stone) the top 500 off of the OC have a shot to be in that class.

    Well I've found on decent resources (mind you this was told to me by an otj member, from a chief meeting, so take it with a grain of salt how true it is) that the July class will be hired as this : on a 2-1-2 basis being; 2 emt promos, then 1 Hispanic, then 2 African Americans, followed by 2 emt promos, 1 Hispanic, 2 African American, and so on and so on, until 293 ph are reached, or they disqualify them or until emt promos are exhausted..so keep training brothers ....motivate

    Plan on July 29th. They know. They have it all planned out. When we started CPAT Prep in September they said the same thing about Jan 14th and it was spot on. We have been hearing July 29th for weeks now. First I heard June 10th with the orientation day being June 3rd (so if you're EMS off the street then). I was really hoping this was true but now it's really looks like July 29th. Makes sense. We will come out right before the holidays then theyll take some time for holidays and prob start another class Feb 2014. So figure July 22nd for orientation, books and quarter master. It's gonna come quick boys. Can't wait.

    Interesting if we follow PSI's breakdown and assessment that means they were looking at 2400, if they go to 3000 or 4000 on their breakdown or 1 in 4 that means people in the 9000s may very well get a call. Do I think that will happen, no not at all but where did you hear that high number from?

    Also coldblooded no worries bro, upset however because technically you can't coach for a uncoachable part of an exam (non-cognitive) so if that is what they sent out then again that is something to be scrutinized over this exam.

    I'm at 2xx and will be surprised to make it into the July Class. Obviously that would be a pleasant surprise. Maybe it's because of the way things have gone over the last several years, but, I just don't feel comfortable.

    I sure wish they would give us a solid idea as to what's going to occur with the priority hires, how the city is going to go about that. That would make the picture a little clearer for a lot of us.

    Meanwhile, one benefit I've found living in the city is that the snow doesn't stick around too long, when it snows, leaving the track and hills I run on clear. Where I grew up, running for wrestling in the morning time, before school, I was always traipsing through slush or ice, often in temperatures 15F or lower, during the winter months.

    July-August-September-October will be warm, but, as I'm sure most you will agree, if they told me to report to the depths of hell for the academy, I'd be there lickity split, no question.

    I just find it amazing that you have all these opportunities in front of you and you don't take the chance to go to the cpat to be prepared. Why would you not take any opportunity to improve yourself and your chances of succeeding?

    I highly doubt many of the priority hires will even make
    it through the physical and/ or the medical. Even if they are able to squeak through that, making it past the academy is a whole different story. They don't care who you are or who you know.....the rock will either make you or break you

The juvenile language being throw around on the forum recently is unbecoming, in the first place, and furthermore has the potential to be used against those of us who are not Priority Hires. Let's not all be so naive to think that people who we don't agree with aren't regularly checking this forum and keeping a record of how we conduct ourselves.

    Or even better, people who might be doing our background and medical history checks, but a lot of people asked questions letting those cats get out of the bag. Also most of this has been civil and nothing here can be used as fire against those who want to see the priority hires on, nothing was of racist, gender, relgious, or sexual orientation. Most of it has been about that thing I mentioned before health or the dirty word; self-entitlement with backpay and a job.

    If you're fearful that this might go to court again, you've missed the point of Merit Matters and their principles.
