    Just a heads up. When I first turn in my paper for residency it was from 2010 and 2011. When I spoke to my new investigator I fax over the same paper that I turn in the first time. He call me back and ask for bank statement and my lease for 2013.

    That is probably to confirm that you are living in the city or other acceptable counties at the time of appointment.

    I've been a city resident from 2007 to present, the last 2 years being independent from my parents financially. When the time comes I'm going to cross my fingers and hope what I got is good enough. The bottom of the NOE says the fdny can accept other documents in leu of what's listed. I have 2 of the 3 they want. I'm hoping they accept a transcript or rent checks as the 3rd. I feel they will get more leanient as time goes on. It's obvious I was a city resident when u look at the papers, it's just not EXACTLY what's listed. Sorry to ramble, but I get crazy when I think about it.

    I know how you feel, I have several pieces of proof I lived in the city during that time frame. I even have 40 something of the 52 weeks worth of pay stubs during that time frame. But I moved to Long Beach last September so I'm incredibly nervous they will come and say you don't get the points because your not in the city anymore. I know guys have in the same situation have gotten the points. I called candidate investigations before I moved last year and they said I'll get the points as long as I have the paperwork but I'm still very anxious about it.

    I know this is far in the future, but can someone tell me when they project the next notice of exam will come out? Do you think it will be before February of 2018? To put it in perspective the NOE for 2500 was December 2011.

    Funny you should mention "Firehouse," I took it out of my local library last week randomly. I haven't got to it yet because I'm reading "Strong of Heart" first - have you read this? I got it because the summary on the inside jacket talked about the great work Ray Downey did, and I've run in the annual 5k they have in Deer Park benefiting his scholarship fund.

I don't mind doing it again, but it makes you wonder if they made any mistakes on their part. I have the receipt, and emails as proof. I'm going to print them just in case. I asked if this was due because I might have a shot at this July class, but he couldn't tell me yes or no. Anyone else have this happened to them? Anyone know if this is routine before an academy class especially since we heard a few people failed the run?
    i received a similar call about two weeks ago, my investigator basically said they were scrutinizing all claims for residency and that i was missing documents. caught me off guard because i thought i was all squared away in that department. i went to metrotech the next day with whatever additional documents i could find within 24 hours and turned them in. like i said this was two weeks ago, called a few times with no definite answer. i did hear mention that the OC guys they were looking into were possibly for last minute additions to the July class, if needed. last thing i heard was that there were talks of sending out emails to OC candidates starting Monday. Haven't received mine yet, if i even will, and by the looks of it neither have you. We're in the same ballpark as far as list number. so basically turn in what you can ASAP and hang tight..AKA Hurry up and wait...

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to metrotech tomorrow to go hand in those documents. I'll try asking him if he knows what is going on with the OC list and this class. I doubt he'll say anything. I'll post anything I hear tomorrow after I'm done at Metrotech and with class.

    I am also close to his # (prob no more than 10 off), so I assume you are probably close to mine as well. I have not received any email yet either, and my investigator also contacted me about getting a couple pieces of paperwork into her asap as well because as she said "I am being considered for the July class". I sent it in and have not heard back yet, and that's with trying to call her, and leaving a message. So my guess is if I am in the July class, I will get an email this week. If I don't, well then January it is.

    Good luck to all you guys and girls that have their run tomorrow. I will keep you guys posted about the two Oc guys that have their run dates tomorrow with me. Hopefully I can get more information from them after the run.

    I am curious as to the list number of the 2 OCs you say are running tomorrow. Are these guys also PHs? Because my list number in in the top 20 and I have heard nothing. Talked to my investigator and she outright told me no OCs had been processed for the runs yet.

    Furthermore I was told that the list has been established and the 4 year life span on the OC has begun already when we got our list numbers. So there is no reason to hold OCs back from this academy. I also am very close with a guy in the top 5 on the OC list and he received nothing for the run. So I find it very curious that OCs would be running tomorrow without also being PHs. If they are solely OCs please let me know their list numbers so I know if I've been mistakenly passed over.

    You have a transcript so you went to college in the city? If so your college mails you tax forms every year with your address and they should have it on file if you don't still have it. That would probably work in lieu of the w-2s

    That's a good idea to use. I just emailed for a copy of my original enrollment letter back in 2010 to use as proof plus my transcript as I was under 21 in 2010. I have gas, electric, and lease/rental agreement back that far and now that I'm older have bank statements, credit cards, license, w-2 etc to present time, but not that only these items as far back as mid 2011. I'm trying to get as much together as possible. I am in the same area as Brian Patrick as I was and still am a college student in NYC

    My tax forms went to my house on Long Island. It's a weird situation because my apartment was a dump and I wanted all important documents going to my parents cause I didn't want them stolen/not get there. I'm hoping the lease, cable bills, transcript, and rent checks made out from my bank acct is enough. I plan to get the electric bill with my roommate at the times name on it with a notarized letter from him saying I lived there and contributed to the bill. Who knows what will happen, but this is the reason why I'm getting my emt certificate and applying to fdny emt in sept.

    I have a checking account and joint checking/debit with a relative as well as joint credit with the same relative who has lived with me this whole time. Does this sound like I meet the requirements? never lived in another house and I have a drivers and security license with my address along with several W2's. thanks

    Dude I'm almost in the same position as you because I just graduated from a school in the city, but also live here and always have. But anyway, have you EVER worked on campus at any point? That's how I got my W-2. Should be on one of those central websites or university information system sites. Even if that isn't the case, I'd scroll through those things since they save and store basically all documentation from the time you enroll to the time you graduate.

    It sounds like many people are in a similar situation as I am regarding being a college student at the time and may not have picture perfect proof. The bottom of the noe says fdny has the right to accept other documents for different circumstances. They can't penalize us for being college students. I think/hope we will all be fine.

    I think we're all as paranoid as we can be when it comes to keeping the points and our list numbers. I also graduated from a long island high school and then went to NYC right after high school. At least I'm not the only one in this situation.
