    not sure if you just hope you are on before 29 or if you are confused about the hiring rule. The rule is you have to file before you are 29, so if you filed before you are 29 you get hired you will be fine if you are 31-32 etc.

    I took that test also, passed the written and the physical. I could see people not finishing, and thats what kept me going and I completed it. I remember when I was all set to run through the tunnel as fast as I can, when I bent down to go in, the tank hit the top side of the tunnel. I stopped dead in my tracks, I felt like such an idiot. LOL

    I'm 21 here, 21xx on exam 2000, praying for July 14' as well so I can be on by age 22 and by that time I'll have my bachelors. Thanks for all the information guys, I have been creeping on this thread for a while. I just finally registered. You guys keep me hopeful.

    Having a bachelors degree is the best thing you can do before you get here. You need an associates to be a Capt., or Lt.. And you need a bachelors to make Chief. You've given yourself many options. Keep it up.

    Hey guys, I'm number 8xx and just graduated, been getting in shape for this whole process which I believe will be coming to a start this summer, I was just wondering if anyone has any insight on the physical exam and anything I should specifically focus on for that and if anyone knows if there is anyone getting together and meeting up to train or run in the Brookyln area specifically Bay Ridge or Bensonhurst , thanks.

    I am glad everyone within my same list number range is thinking summer 2014 because that is what I am hoping for as well. We will just have to train hard, stay out of trouble, and wait and see.

    don't think so...almostthere said it would be on the fdny official page and in an ironic twist, the PHs seem to be much more informed than we are.

    Dude I'm in the same EXACT position as you almost. Same age too and just graduated.

    Also, was playing around with cardio workouts yesterday and for anyone who swims I have a good one:

    1.5 mile run at a sub 12:00 pace (ideally TO the pool to minimize the rest in between)

    Swim 5x100 yds/meters. After each 100 get out and do 15-20 pushups. Minimal rest after pushups then repeat.

    1.5 mile run at sub 12:00 pace
