    What kind of leg injuries? We talking about broken bones or like pulled hammys?

    Not sure, but I'm pretty sure leg injuries. Im almost positive one guy tore his hamstring, but none of the injuries are mentioned, and I'm not asking. Just seems like when I see someone injured, they are hobbling.
    Just train guys, and stretch after you run, that it is what they do at the academy.

    Currently in my late 20s. This is my last shot and I'm sitting in the mid 8000s. Considering joining the service just to subtract years off my age so I can sit for the next exam. Breaks my heart to see people drop out of the academy at this rate. Don't throw this opportunity away

    Ok so just to be clear, I have a low resting heart rate since I'm relatively lean and do a lot of cardio, which I like to think translates to a good level of fitness. So, for those of us who are in good shape with a low resting heart rate, we're LESS likely to pass the first stair machine test? Makes no sense haha. I'm not saying what you guys reported back doesn't make sense. It seems like the system doesn't. But then again, look at the scenario as a whole haha.

    Some info I know you guys would be interested in:

    1- We were told the January class would start on the 27th. Maybe Jukez is the comish
    2- Medicals will be scheduled through August and stop in Sept. In Sept they're going to start sending out the next batch of Intake packets, they were guessing out to around #1100 on OC. Intake interviews will be in Oct and Nov, ending before Thanksgiving week. The guy we spoke to was guessing some where around the top 900 on OC have a good shot for January


    That's ok man keep working hard you'll do fine on your next attempt...

    Crap I'm in the 1500 range I was really hoping my number would be reached for intake packets this September

    2. What is the medical composed of?
    3. What is the investigation composed of?
    4. How soon would guys in the 900-950 get called in for these examinations?

    I was hoping if all went well I would graduate the academy before I hit 30. Now I'm hoping just to make it into the academy by the time I'm 30.

    I don't get it - why is some dude quitting because of his grandfather's illness getting everyone down about the time when they get on?

    Just called DCAS to see if they updated the info and see if they put an established date and termination date for the test. So this is what the system said


    original number of eligibles 40982
    this list was established on June 26 2013
    this list will terminate on June 26 2017

    I don't know if this was previously posted, my apologies if it was. So this is good for OC guys, it was just established for this last class as opposed to when it was made public.

    So will they be able to put an OC Class into the July 2017 academy?

    If that date is correct, I would assume no.

    Welcome to my world. And to make matters worse, all the physical training will cause extreme amounts of restlessness do to the fact that you're just sitting there.

    My plan is to eat 10 cheeseburgers a day so that my resting heart rate hovers around 180 bpm. Then, when its time for the stair mill I'll just have to keep my heart rate under 360. Solid plan right?

    Honestly don't know the exact # I missed by, but I finished the entire process at Metrotech so had to be pretty close. I wasn't too bummed at the time because I had done well on 6019. Unfortunately that ****storm didn't have a happy ending.

    1. The intake packets are the first step in the hiring process. It's a packet that's maybe 30 pages long? (don't exactly remember) that is sent to you by the FDNY. You need to fill this out and bring it with you to your investigation date which is the first page of your packet. The packet includes information like your school experience, work experience, prior arrests. Things of that nature.

    2. The medical is labeled a "FULL MEDICAL EXAM". Which I assume will be a drug test, blood work, vision test, hearing test and so on. What people fear in the medical is the stair master portion. You are instructed to walk on the stair master for 3 minutes with no weight vest on. They monitor your heart rate through the entire process. If your heart rate does not exceed 90% of your maximum heart rate (could have worded that wrong) then you will take a short break and continue on the stairs with a 50 lb vest. Again your heart rate is monitored. If you fail this portion you need to come back and re try.

    3. The investigation is basically filling out your packet and bringing the required paperwork (all of which will be stated in your investigation packet.) Also you meet your investigator.

    4. Speculation says that guys in the 1000's may receive packets by the end of September.


    -Hope that helps, Good luck.
