    None of the candidates are very good. It's amazing how many elections, on the national and local level, just flat out have poor candidates.

    Liu... The guy is bad news.

    The only thing I saw was that a candidate protested his test (answers), and they called him to retest.

    This is copy-pasted from the facebook page. The underlined names are the comments left by other people. The original post was by John O'Brien

    Found two John O'Briens on the FDNY list. There's a chance that's not his real name on facebook but who knows. Here they are:

    27603.000 JOHN J O'BRIEN 89.0000

    35109.000 JOHN E O'BRIEN 84.0000

    JD Mac Kinnon Really, this just got more interesting. I thought that they couldn't rescore your exam and that upon review "the test followed the correct correlation and scoring method as created by PSI, hence we cannot rescore your exam."

    I would love to know this guys circumstances, especially because he claims to have gotten "screwed" in the last section of the exam and is finally "catching a break in this whole mess". I feel the majority of these people who claim to have gotten screwed did not deserve it in the first place. Most of these individuals cant even spell or form sentences. Its these people who are ignorant and feel so entitled. People forget that this job has standards, and not to mention that all civil service jobs are crap shoots. I am sure most of you all were told the same thing as me, take every test. Most people who claim to have gotten screwed on this test should just go back to school, learn how to form sentences, then take every test.

    hey guys, a friend on the job told me that COD Kilduff (Chief of Department) said that there most likely wont be any OC guys in this class. That info we already know, but he did say that COD Kilduff also mentioned them trying to do 2 1/2 classes a year when things get going with the OC list. I know some people have mentioned hearing stuff like this earlier so I figured Id add too it with what I heard.

    Again Im just passing on what a friend told me, but who knows if its true and how it would really work out. Some of you guys seem pretty bright, so take a crack at working the numbers and detail haha.

    They could do 3 a year if they wanted to, and if classes stay at 18 weeks. That would leave 2 weeks of overlap a year which could come in 1 week intervals at the end of 1 academy/start of the next one.

    The option is there for them to do 2.5, depends if they want to do that.

    Just wondering since no OC candidates will be in the July class, does that mean they will push back when the next round of processing packets are supposed to go out.

    Heard something similar to this a couple times recently. Not sure if they intend to do it or are just trying to keep us OC guys sane for another year haha. It would be amazing if it turned out to be true and they started with the first class. The July 17th PH class should end by Nov 20th at 18 weeks. If they start up the first class with OC immediately then after 18 weeks they might be putting in the 2nd OC class by March 26th.

    Starting in March as opposed to when I originally though id go in January only delays me two months and would be a massive relief. I don't have a ton of faith the city can get rolling this efficiently but then maybe after all the PHs and promos are out of the way there's no reason they cant start plowing through classes. Not sure why the status quo of having the Rock empty for almost 2 months between classes makes sense.

    I thought the July class was going in on the 29th ? But if they were to bang out one class after another and we got in March/April it would be a huge relief and I would still graduate before I hit 30 lol.

    Ah yeah you're right, I got it mixed with the January 17th date of last class. But still, an April 2nd start date would be fine by me at this point.

    I'm bored, I'll play.

    40-60 leftover Latino PHs and 40-60 leftover EMTs who will become eligible for promotion/recycle from July's class. Let's say it's a nice round 100 non-OC people. Feel free to question this number all you want since no one knows the true answer but it's just an educated guess.

    220 people off the OC list, at a 1:4 ratio puts us at 880. Isn't that right around the number the first and only class reached on 6019?
