    Exactly how I feel. I was hoping for that third class in January and this very likely will push me back.

    Try not to stress the numbers and predict anything. Remember for the current class there were rumors saying it wasn't even going to get filled and look what happened. I'm just running and training and gonna be ready for either scenario. Who else is under 12min for their 1.5? I'm not a distance guy at all but was able to consistently take time off my runs each month with running 4-5 days/week.

    The best thing to remember about the numbers being posted here is that a majority of it is speculation.

    The only thing that's certain at this time is that there will be a 3:2 ratio of priorities : open competitive.

    The rest is left up to the actions of the people on the lists - and people vary in their actions. People put in varying levels of effort. Some people take things seriously, others don't. While the CPAT is a joke, people do fail. And the medical is not something you can 'push' your way through. You're either in shape and healthy or you're not.


    If you're in the running for July and you don't make it, that's 6 more months of training time. If you're further down the road, same thing, more time to prepare, to be ready, to succeed.

    I had my second medical today, I wanted to get it over with asap, so I scheduled it for today after doing my initial medical last tuesday. Anyway, I was super nervous going into it, not because of my physical ability to complete the 8 min on the step mill, but I was nervous I would trip on the machine and fall or something dumb like that to get myself disqualified.

    Luckily, I didn't do anything stupid and I smoked that test, barely worked up a sweat and wasn't out of breath at all. My work leading up to this did me well. To train I used my school's 50lb vest and would put in 20 minutes on the step mill. While I was there a couple guys dropped out of the step mill because they couldn't hack it. My recommendation for those of you that still have to do the step mill for the medical is just put all your effort into staying on that machine, if you are having a hard time and feel like you can't go any further, just keep pushing. It is literally 8 min of your life and you don't want something as simple as walking on a glorified escalator to stop you from getting on the best job in the world.

    Yeah, if you stop for any reason other than them turning off your machine and telling you that you're done, you fail.

    Does anyone have the main number for CID office? I've been trying to get in touch with my investigator for too long now and haven't been able to do so. I don't have the main CID office number though and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Can anyone help out? Thanks in advance...

    718-999-2213 or 718-999-1146 I've had luck with both, but the second number is better than the first.

    Any idea if a slight stutter would be a problem? It's mostly just due to anxiety(Not intense situations, just overall), public speaking etc

    A friend of mine is 6 years on and has a horrific stutter. I wouldn't worry about it unless you plan on becoming commish down the road.

    Hey guys, new to posting on this forum, been following it for quite a while tho. Best of luck to everybody going through the process. Just wanted to give all you guys a heads up; I recieved a call from my investigator today saying he had to cancel my follow up with him for missing paperwork. He left a voicemail and when I called him back ten minutes later he said I should call him back late June because he highly doubts my list number will be called for this July class. My list number is low 300's and scored a 104. I've taken the psych , and have my physcical scheduled for next week.
