    And that sheet they give you tells you what you handed in and what you didn't so you know yourself if you're 100% or not.

    Sounds a lot like the one I had.

So what does that even mean? Is my investigator not allowed to tell me if I'm good or not? I don't understand.
    My references let me know they got them in the mail.

    Wow your in the 700s and your job got something in from the department? Good to hear, I didn't expect them to get that high already with the letters.

    Doing a full 10 minutes on the stairmaster with the 50lb vest now. Took me a month and a half to go from only a little over 4 minutes to a full 10 minutes. So im gonna go in on friday to metro tech and do the 8 minutes and then its all over for the medical portion. Have'nt heard anything in the two weeks since i took my psychological so i guess i passed it and im not crazy after all.

    Did any of you guys receive a large envelope from bureau of health services with the results of your medical? I havent heard any of you guys mention this so i was just wondering. Its a large envelope with your in depth medical results, along with a few pages full of tips on how to live a healthier lifestyle. I received this last tuesday. Very large envelope.

    For the guys on the OC list who were given everything including the medical just prior to the July class, did they send out your references too?

    And if not, do you guys think it's a good sign that there doing that now for guys in the 700s?

    Can any of you guys otj lay out exactly what the old physical fitness requirements were before the golden age of CPAT? I keep hearing that the old fitness test were a lot harder. Im curious to know exactly what it was. Was there a stairmaster element? What kind of obstacles courses did they put you guys thru and things like that?

    Woops...meant to hit "reply with quote", but I hit "like" instead, lol. Anyway, I don't think there is any rhyme or reason as to when the reference letters get sent out. I am low 300's, and I had my reference's receive their letters back in the beginning of May. Then you have guys in the 200's like Topthrill, who's references might not have received their letters yet. Then you have guys like my brother grok who is around my list # (we have completed everything around the same time) and his references just recently received their letters. Again, seems to be no rhyme and reason.

    Thats great. My white blood cell count was a little high. Had to go to my own doctor and get the blood work redone. My doctors results came back lower and within normal range. Faxed the results to FDNY health bureau and now im cleared.

    Yeah it seems to be little rhyme or reason but it still gets me nervous having such an unresponsive investigator. Someone who I know very well went through a situation similar to this and a week before the academy his investigator told him he had to get in last minute paperwork and if he didn't have it by a certain time he would be deferred to the next class. I'm sorry but I can't afford for something like that to happen.

    I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Do I act passively and risk possibly having the same situation happen to me or do I act more assertive and have my investigator hate my guts lol. Whatta you guys think?

    I'm sure we can all understand the feeling of being so close to something then have it taken away (6019 guys). Hence why I'm so neurotic.

    I say keep calling. This is your career and life in his hands, I wouldn't worry if he's your friend or likes you lol it's like when you go to the doctor and don't ask every question you want too because you don't want too annoy the doctor- but would you rather make sure your ok or worry about annoying the doctor-- that's just my opinion though.

    I would keep making sure everything is ok. Doesn't hurt to make sure, but it can hurt if you don't make sure, and something pops up at the end.

    Assuming you get on you'll get this every year after your annual medical at BHS.

    My understanding is that it was more like FST. Also each event was timed or measured in some manner and scored on its own. All that fed into an aggregate score, resulting in your score on the physical. Generally you needed near 100 on both written and physical to have a good chance of getting reached.

    I had my medical back in may and never recieved any envelope with results. All I did was get that shot looked at by a nurse and faxed back to bhs. Have all you guys recieved results packages?

    You had more than one W2? In My opinion that should be good enough, Why does some other bull**** count more than a second and third W2.

    I don't think most guys ever received this. When i got mine, that was the first i ever heard about it. Never seen anyone post a comment before concerning it and guys usually post ANYTHING they get from the department on this forum. It scared the crap outta me too. I saw the size of the envelope and read the words "Bureau of Health Services" and i was like "Oh my freakin god man are u serious. wtf is this bullsh*t now". Thought they were disqualifying me for some medical reason that i was'nt aware of. Then i opened it and there were like 10 pages simply laying out the complete results of my medical with like 2 pages giving general tips on how to live a healthier lifestyle. No bad news at all.

    Man tell me about it. I had:

    *W2's for 2010/2011
    *12 months bank statement from July 2010-June 2011
    *Direct TV cable bill from July 2010-January 2011 and
    *Time warner cable bills from March 2011-June 2011.

    ....and do you know what she told me? She said "This is all great but you are missing a statement for February 2011". And i'm like "lol seriously. Well um..I know, but its only a one month gap in which i did'nt have cable. I'm sure they're not stupid. Will they actually think i moved out of town in January 2011 and then moved back into the same exact apartment in March 2011?". I actually said this. She laughed and said "I hear you" but then said that she does'nt make the rules, the rules come from DCAS and that DCAS requires EVERY SINGLE MONTH to be covered; NO GAPS.

    I ended up using my car insurance statement for February 2011 in order to cover the one month gap. Also had an debt statement from the DoD for February 2011. But...what if i did'nt drive a car back then...or did'nt owe the DoD??? I would've been screwed. I would have missed this opportunity simply becuz i did'nt have cable in February 2011. This residency stuff is crazy and borderline stupid.
