    Between the class I came out of and the one after mine, I'd assume 100-150?? And the recycles from this current probie class. Also whoever deferred? Idk to much to speculate

    I believe that's in the ballpark JerkAlert thought would be eligible as well

    So that means there might be 200 eligible for this class (which we suspected already) AND another 250 left for the January 2014 class? Wow I hope this isn't true.

    # eligible and # that make it to the final step and are offered the job aren't the same.

    Oh yea without a doubt. It's just that if it only took 420 guys or so to get the first class, then that's a crazy low ratio.

    More than half the July class will be EMS promos. The rest will be 3:2 quota hires: open competitive. That leaves room for 60 from the O.C. I'm guessing, but an educated guess.

    Really hope it isn't true that they still have around 450 EMS promos to go through. I really had my heart set on that third class, was even practicing in the mirror how I would give my notice to my current employer lol.

    I wanted to add for guys paying for private cpat classes, its not worth it. Work out regularly with light weight high reps and run and you'll be fine. I've heard of guys paying around $400 for these practice classes, the city lets you practice at the academy for free when your number is called. Spend that $400 on a vest and sign up for a gym with a stairmill.

    Exactly how I feel. I was hoping for that third class in January and this very likely will push me back.

    Try not to stress the numbers and predict anything. Remember for the current class there were rumors saying it wasn't even going to get filled and look what happened. I'm just running and training and gonna be ready for either scenario. Who else is under 12min for their 1.5? I'm not a distance guy at all but was able to consistently take time off my runs each month with running 4-5 days/week.

    The best thing to remember about the numbers being posted here is that a majority of it is speculation.

    The only thing that's certain at this time is that there will be a 3:2 ratio of priorities : open competitive.

    The rest is left up to the actions of the people on the lists - and people vary in their actions. People put in varying levels of effort. Some people take things seriously, others don't. While the CPAT is a joke, people do fail. And the medical is not something you can 'push' your way through. You're either in shape and healthy or you're not.


    If you're in the running for July and you don't make it, that's 6 more months of training time. If you're further down the road, same thing, more time to prepare, to be ready, to succeed.

    I had my second medical today, I wanted to get it over with asap, so I scheduled it for today after doing my initial medical last tuesday. Anyway, I was super nervous going into it, not because of my physical ability to complete the 8 min on the step mill, but I was nervous I would trip on the machine and fall or something dumb like that to get myself disqualified.

    Luckily, I didn't do anything stupid and I smoked that test, barely worked up a sweat and wasn't out of breath at all. My work leading up to this did me well. To train I used my school's 50lb vest and would put in 20 minutes on the step mill. While I was there a couple guys dropped out of the step mill because they couldn't hack it. My recommendation for those of you that still have to do the step mill for the medical is just put all your effort into staying on that machine, if you are having a hard time and feel like you can't go any further, just keep pushing. It is literally 8 min of your life and you don't want something as simple as walking on a glorified escalator to stop you from getting on the best job in the world.

    Yeah, if you stop for any reason other than them turning off your machine and telling you that you're done, you fail.

    Does anyone have the main number for CID office? I've been trying to get in touch with my investigator for too long now and haven't been able to do so. I don't have the main CID office number though and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Can anyone help out? Thanks in advance...

    718-999-2213 or 718-999-1146 I've had luck with both, but the second number is better than the first.

    Any idea if a slight stutter would be a problem? It's mostly just due to anxiety(Not intense situations, just overall), public speaking etc

    A friend of mine is 6 years on and has a horrific stutter. I wouldn't worry about it unless you plan on becoming commish down the road.
