    What's the possibility of every PH passing the 1.5m run? Hoping at least someone gets hired from the OC list.

    Someone posted on the FB Merit Matters page that they're going to be allowed to retake the written exam.

    What purpose would that serve?

    That's not true. They can not take the written over. It was a one shot deal.

    Not a clue - I'm assuming he filed some type of protest.

    Why wouldn't they give the PH's a second chance if they fail the run? They might as well since they have already been spoon feeding them throughout this whole process. If they aren't given a level playing field with the OC exam then they will just cry racism and the city will bend over for them once again.

    I can't talk for all ph but a lot of ph candidates that I have talk to said they are under the 13min mark. It might be better for the Oc list to start in January which will allow more guys off the list to be hired.

    You might be right. I was told that Ph do not get a second chance at the run at the Vulcan meet that I attend. If they do not have a medical reason for not showing up for the run or if they do not pass they will lose their spot. They are only allowed to defer to the next class for a medical reason and it was not a guarantee they will be place in to that January class.

    Perhaps he's one of the people who had technical problems. I remember hearing last year some people saying their PCs froze or flat out crashed during the test.

    None of the candidates are very good. It's amazing how many elections, on the national and local level, just flat out have poor candidates.

    Liu... The guy is bad news.

    The only thing I saw was that a candidate protested his test (answers), and they called him to retest.

    This is copy-pasted from the facebook page. The underlined names are the comments left by other people. The original post was by John O'Brien

    Found two John O'Briens on the FDNY list. There's a chance that's not his real name on facebook but who knows. Here they are:

    27603.000 JOHN J O'BRIEN 89.0000

    35109.000 JOHN E O'BRIEN 84.0000

    JD Mac Kinnon Really, this just got more interesting. I thought that they couldn't rescore your exam and that upon review "the test followed the correct correlation and scoring method as created by PSI, hence we cannot rescore your exam."

    I would love to know this guys circumstances, especially because he claims to have gotten "screwed" in the last section of the exam and is finally "catching a break in this whole mess". I feel the majority of these people who claim to have gotten screwed did not deserve it in the first place. Most of these individuals cant even spell or form sentences. Its these people who are ignorant and feel so entitled. People forget that this job has standards, and not to mention that all civil service jobs are crap shoots. I am sure most of you all were told the same thing as me, take every test. Most people who claim to have gotten screwed on this test should just go back to school, learn how to form sentences, then take every test.

    hey guys, a friend on the job told me that COD Kilduff (Chief of Department) said that there most likely wont be any OC guys in this class. That info we already know, but he did say that COD Kilduff also mentioned them trying to do 2 1/2 classes a year when things get going with the OC list. I know some people have mentioned hearing stuff like this earlier so I figured Id add too it with what I heard.

    Again Im just passing on what a friend told me, but who knows if its true and how it would really work out. Some of you guys seem pretty bright, so take a crack at working the numbers and detail haha.
