    I think about it as a College Athletic Poll.....Guys that lose the residency credit drop down the line and the ones who have it move on up. I don't think you get a new list # as that's kinda like your ID # throughout the process. Could be wrong though.

    My guess would be there's still about 100-125 left to process if 150 make it to this class. There were 869 promos, 318 went to the first class, if 150 went to this class that leaves 401 left to make up the people who dropped out/didnt pass the process for the first 2 classes, and those left to process.

    pretty sure you're right. I think I remember the joinfdny facebook page saying they don't update their list if you move up or down.

    I don't know man. Your ratio of promo list to hire number seems way off even for EMS guys. The best you usually see out of them is 1 for every 2 list numbers makes academy. I'm pretty sure they got to around the 700's just filling up the last class, meaning that the remaining 170 or so would probably only take up like 85 spots. I doubt there will be more than a handful left for the winter class.

    I agree but about 1-2 months ago someone mentioned a crazy low ratio of how many people they went through and weeded out to get the 318 for the first class. I found it hard to believe myself but if you think about it the background and psych are already done for them. It's just passing the physical and medical. They went to I think 710 for the 1st class but that also includes them passing over people who at the time were not eligible for promo, but will be by July '13, or Jan '14, etc.

    Plan on at least 100 EMS this summer of not almost 150. They did stop at 710 for the last class. There were approx 140 of the 869 not eligible due to the 2 year policy which approx 40 or so still won't have until January of next year.
    As for the people who left last class for academic of physical reasons, the rumor (and key word is rumor) on them is that they will not go into this summer class but next winter and I heard there are approx 30 of them MM can confirm that.
    At this point the ball is rolling. So no need to stress these numbers so hard. Just sit tight everyone. You'll get your chance.
    Hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather. Have a great weekend. Stay safe.

    I was hoping you'd chime in. If there's about 100 that are eligible now do you mean that have passed everything, or there's 100 people who could potentially make it in and then obviously the # that make it to the rock for July would be slightly less.

    As for the people recycling, I was thinking it would be more like 20 and I'm only basing that off of what the Lt.'s were telling us for how many people quit on their own and could possibly come back, and how many were flat out fired. The last time I was there 5 were flat out fired and can't recycle.

    The 100+ or so are now eligible. As of March. The guys I work with had medicals on April. All passed and are ready to go. Plus you got guys like me who just scored like a-holes. That's a good call though Hopeful, some may not pass the medical. Although I haven't heard anything going around about guys failing. Pretty much every guy I know that just hit the 2 years passed the medical and are walking around with smiles counting down the days. 12 for me.

    So on the EMS side of things you have 159 guys that didn't make it into the last class because they didn't score high enough, 140 guys that didn't have the 2 years on EMS to switch, and 30 or so potential guys that can be recycled. So over the course of the next two classes where looking at about 330 potential promo candidates remaining ?

    Just me playing around with numbers but from the looks of things, there are 260 candidates eligible for this class alone. And I'm not good at math but they went up to 710 and 140 candidates weren't eligible right off the bat of those 710. So that 570 candidates that went through to get 320 probies into the academy, that's 1 probie for every 1.8 candidates. If you go by that hiring ratio we're looking at about 144 EMS promo's making it through to the academy this class. Of course hiring ratio's can change and these aren't exact numbers. And I don't know if the 140 that didn't have 20 years are for the entire 869 eligible's or just the first 710 they went through. But thanks to JerkAlert we have some semi legit numbers to play around with and kill time with at work lol.

    Now the wild card is the PH's. We've heard anywhere from 15-60 have passed every step except the run. We have no idea how true those numbers are. We have no idea if the city is implementing the hiring quota with the PH's or just trying to bang them all out at once. If they're doing the quota than those 60 are a lot more than just 60 out of the 470 eligible.

    Like many other athletes on here Im sure you have a list of things that you injured and saw a doctor for.
    If it was nothing serious can it be omitted? Examples for me...
    -Last year I strained my back. Saw a doc she recommended PT so it wouldn't happen again or was less likely to happen again
    -Recently sprained my thumb; saw doctor to make sure it wasn't serious so i could continue working out without doing further damage.
    -When I was 18(8years ago) I had a "procedure" to remove ingrown toe nails
    - I have seasonal allergies. Doesn't affect my breathing I just get a sneeze attack in the spring
    Hey man

    I wouldn't tell the Dr's any of this stuff, it's irrelevant. If you have the operation report regarding the ingrown toenail lol then bring it, but I wouldn't go crazy about it if it was 8 years ago. They want to see if you've had any broken bones or major surgeries that could possibly effect your job performance. I had tubes put in my ears when I was a kid, but I never told them this and how would they ever know? They only know what they see and what you tell them. I had shoulder surgery and I had to bring documentation for that. I also had finger surgery, but I never even mentioned it to them cause it wasn't visible. Again if you have the documentation and feel more comfortable giving them the info on any surgical procedure that's fine you should always be honest, however listing sprains and strains and allergies is getting crazy. If anything telling them you have allergies can hurt you. I was just like you before I got on because you really aren't sure what to expect. I told them I had allergies and they wanted to disqualify me.

    Some **** they might be able to find to through insurance records? couldn't they?

    I know of person who lied on PD about medications they were prescribed and then after they were hired and finished the academy they were terminated, or thats how the story goes.

    Medications are a completely different discussion. That very may be. Obviously if you are taking a medication for something it may show up as an abnormality in a blood test. I was talking about surgeries and past injuries. No one mentioned medications. I don't know anything about insurance records. I'm sure they could, but I doubt it.

    I know. Every family day video has absolutely terrible music. Even though the production values have gone up a lot, the music remains the same.

    Hey guys I don't mean to get everybody all riled up and I know "The Rant" isn't always a good source of information but there's a post over there saying that all future classes are on hold due to the second circuit court of appeals decision. This is the first I've heard this anywhere. Can any of you gentlemen who are currently on the job either confirm or deny this rumor. As always, thank you for your time, it is greatly appreciated.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the court decision really had nothing to do with PH or classes so it shouldn't make a difference..

    But then again..
