    I agree. I'll believe it when I see it. We see so many (sometimes wild) rumors you really can't hang on every one of them. And if it's 26 weeks instead of 18 so what? We're still gonna take the job anyway.

    The academy was 18 weeks long once, 6 years ago. They did a full CFR-D cert. for that class. I would assume that they'll do the same thing again.

    Look, does it really matter? If you get in, you get in and you'll stay there as long as it takes.

If they didn't have what it takes to study for a written test, they won't make it through 26 weeks of misery.
    Maybe the PH's will have wake up calls and shuttle busses to make sure their alarm clocks don't discriminate against them.

    I'm sure they will.

    I highly doubt there will be any overlap or 26 week academy. I wouldn't take stock in either of those rumors. Longest was 23 weeks and it was a waste according to all those involved.

    Just can't wait for this class to go in so I can get my paperwork.

    Assuming the senior drill instructor is the same I can assure you there will be no coddling.

    Looks like I just missed the cut for this upcoming class. Kind of upsetting, but just means more time to prepare and be in the best shape I could possibly be in. Good Luck to those going in July and looking forward to beginning this great journey with some of you in January.

    I wouldn't count on anything just yet. Along with all the info the gentlemen gave us at BHS on Thursday, they added that nothing is for certain as of yet and they are not sure how exactly things are going to play out.

    To add, we were given an approximate number of people they have put through the medical for this class: 680. It was stated that the pass rate was approximately 60%.

    The information I posted before was given to myself and several other candidates, the end of the medical, by two members of the BHS staff.

    However, it does seem the people are getting a variety of information from people at HQ and it seems to be a little different each time!

    There's only so much he can do. I can tell you right now that if the staff at the Rock are told to make sure certain people get through, those people are getting through, no matter what happens. The class from 6019 had someone who never did complete FST; they removed obstacles that person was unable to negotiate so they could pass that person. That person also happened to be a squad leader and ended up going to a 15th Division engine company. The job is now under scrutiny from all sides. Have no doubt that every PH who doesn't quit on his own is definitely going out to the field. They WILL NOT be weeded out by the DI's because the chiefs and Commissioner won't allow them to. And also have no doubt that they WILL NOT be leaned on as hard as the rest of you. So at least with the 26 weeks they'd have to endure it a bit longer.

    I've seen people pushed through as well. As long as they don't out right quit, even if they can't do an evolution, they WILL get into the field. Damn shame

    U weren't rude. To think about it, yeah, it is funny. But, just trying to figure out if people were getting this type of treatment before this lawsuit stuff came about. More than likely it has and if so it is ironic that people are talking stuff about the PHs getting special treatment.

    This isn't the first time there were priority hires. The vulcans and women's groups have been making certain sexes and races a "priority" for a long time. There was a court mandate a long time ago for x numbers of "blacks" for X numbers of"whites". Forgot the years and the actual ratio. And another time the list was help up for years if I remember correctly because the physical was found to be sexist. Keep in mind thou that all the while "minorities" we're making it through on merit.

    Three academy classes were 26 weeks, not 23.

    True AND false. There have been people pushed through who couldn't hack it. There have also been people who were told that resignation was the only opportunity to come back, otherwise they'd be fired. 40+ people started the last class and didn't graduate. There probably should have been more....but not all of those people left on thier own, some were ushered to the door. It's not a great situation, but all is not lost. Many who don't cut it will find themselves at HQ resigning.
