    Seriously, this is all straight up bull****. What are the chances any action will be taken against the Vulcans and what are the chances the news even reports on this?

    Somebody with a copy of the manual please do the right thing and put it on the internet and give everybody a fair chance. I was there tonight and could not believe what I was witnessing. Also I was one of the last guys to leave and when I was leaving I saw a guy that was with us giving NY1 an on camera interview, hopefully it'll be on t.v. and show the world what the hell is going on.

    Or at a bare minimum, maybe someone who managed to attend one of the classes can give us a rundown of the main points (i know math was talked about, but other specific subjects covered, and especially any tips or suggestions they gave for the personality portion)? That would still be a big help.

    I can't believe ny 1 was there. This is getting out of hand. Was only whites being rejected or were they rejecting other races as well?

    If we can't get anyone to upload the book maybe we can organize a study groups with those that do have the book.

    For those that made it into the prep class can you go more in depth on the math portion of it. Like I know square roots but was it just figuring out square roots or was it addition and subtraction of square roots. Was it multiplication and division of square roots as well ? Fractions same situation. Any information would help greatly. Besides Math and the personality sections, what other topics were discussed ? For those of us going tomorrow if they don't let us in we all should contact as many media outlets in the area as possible at the same time. Force this to be a story if it comes to that.

    Call the press in advance if your gonna go tommorrow this way they can catch them in the act. And to the previous poster, if you did not check off african american as your ethnicity on your application then you wont be allowed access, at least thats what happened in queens tonight.

    It just aired on ny1 and the vulcans response is that they let everybody in three nights in a row and today they had to reject people that was not invited because they ran out of supplies. This is true because when I went they had mentioned that more people showed up than they expected. I figured that was the case today but wasn't sure. It's a lot of competition for this people are showing their interest in the job.

    So how come they just stopped white guys ? Shouldn't they have been stopping everyone and ensuring they were indeed on the list ?

    Excellent point, Tom. And another thing to note - they're charging $20 per person. That should be more than enough to make all the necessary copies.

    Merit matters is gonna have a field day with this.

    One thing everyone has to understand is that they don't have to do this for anyone. Yet alone for free, of course they have to pay the school for the usage of there facility and pay for copies. Put all of yourselves in their shoes I mean I wouldn't do it for free taking time away from my family and all I would want to make some type of change out of it. Believe me they are making a lot of money out of this but they didn't have to do this for candidates it not like it was mandatory or anything.

    Every person other than african americans were NOT on the list. We had proof with printouts from the website showing confirmation that we registered, yet not one singe person that wasnt black was on that list. On top of that I did not see a single black person get turned away like we did. And the worst part is they were coming in over 45 min late!! And we had to all stand there for hours and watch all these guys show up late and cut right in front of us. I cant describe how much restraint we all had to show.

    $50? I saw where you endorsed it on the other thread but that's some money. I guess comparetively, it's peanuts. Are there others you recommend or is this the most helpful?

    Straight from the mouth of the Lt. who was there, they had more than enough materials for us, that was not why they were keeping us out. Originally they wanted us to wait to make sure they had enough hand out's for the people on their list, then they'd let us in if they had left overs. Before they could even get an accurate reading on if they had enough hand out's they told us we were not getting in, no matter what, and it had nothing to do with how many hand out's they had. This was right after the Lt. got off the phone with Washington, and the Lt. Andrew Brown said "I am a firefighter, I follow orders. Those were my orders".

    He also said "I had a plan, you guys screwed it up". Referring to his idea of letting us in after they allowed the people on their list to check in. I guess he was implying we forced him to call Washington who told him we couldn't go in, no matter how many hand out's they had left over.
