    I don't think so. I read in the investigation package that they may not investigate you right away, and there was a box to check if you wanted to delay appointment until your investigation was complete... Take a look at the last page of your application, where you signed, if you have a copy. Not 100% certain though...

    Does anyone know if they really go digging around your medical history looking for things?

    I got this ache I want to get checked but I'm honestly nervous it'll end up screwing me some how.

    Did you really ask that 3 separate times hours apart? And also not include what your score is?

    Hey MM, I know you passed your CPAT on the first practice but do you remember how much time they gave you between all 3 cracks at it?

    Not that much... a week AT MOST. All 3 attempts were scheduled within a 1.5-2 week period.

    MM - do they really go searching through all your past medical history?

    I have no idea how much they go through however I'm pretty damn sure you sign over consent for them to look at any medical records as needed. If you've never seen a doctor about it though... how would they know? PM me if you don't want to share the details of your 'ache' here.

    If you have a medical issue you're concerned about enough to think about seeing a doctor, then SEE A DOCTOR. You're a human being, and human beings break and get sick. You're much better off being able to show proof of treatment and a clean bill of health than allowing an issue to get bigger than it is now. I don't blame you if you don't want to put your business online, so I won't ask what's going on, but most aches are treatable things that can be fixed. And if it is serious, wouldn't you want to know that early enough to get a jump on it?

    The academy is very physically demanding. You want to make sure you are 100% healthy to take the challenge. You don't want your "ache" to get worst and force you to resign from the academy and then you will have to wait until you heal and getter better to get recycled (if you are given that option). Instead you can use the time to heal now.

    A question for FDsouthbronxNY or anyone otj:
    Our psych letter says to show up for the written psych in casual dress. Would kahkis and a polo be appropriate?

    I can relate to the desire to avoid documenting any potential injuries. I had chronic back pain that I dealt with for a long time, but I didn't go to a doctor because I knew the primary cause of that pain was sitting on my *** in a bus. Not surprisingly within a few weeks of finishing EMS that back pain was gone.

    That said, the above quote is definitely true. Everybody is going to get banged up at some point in the academy. Take care of yourself and make sure you enter at 100%.

    Yes, kahkis, and polo is fine, you don't meet anyone, it's all done in the auditorium. Just dress neat, and you'll be fine.

    This has been talked about for some time. No definitive answer, but since they are drawing names from that list and beginning to investigate those on it, I'd say the clock is running. Some will most definitely be hired come July.

    I somehow walked away from my investigation with my reference sheets. I called my investigator and she said I need to mail them back to her then she must mail them to my references. I called her today and she said she has received my references but she hasn't sent them out yet. Does anyone know if this could possibly hold me up? Someone on here just said their friend of 3xx just got a letter about a physc. I'm 4xx, So it must mean I'm coming up soon and I don't want one silly thing like reference sheets holding me back. Does anyone here know if the references they put down have received and sent back their sheets? Thank you!

    Investigators has not worked on packets yet due to a high volume of candidates. My investigator stated they are going to start viewing packets next week. That is when things will lighten up in regards of intake interviews. I went to cpat yesterday and they where stressing that they r definitely going deeper on the oc list because a lot of candidates are failing the medical. They also stressed that despite what dcas is saying about a January class we are going in the summer class because there isnt enough candidates for that class
