    No, I didn't get that email the other day, but I think it may be the same one that was sent out a couple weeks ago. If anyone can chime in, but it was sent in one of those recruitment newsletter emails, correct? If so, I've pretty much stopped reading those.

    I just tried looking through my mail boxes but couldn't find it. So, I have no idea what's up with that email. It seems like the people who posted about it are further down on the list, out of range for this upcoming class or the next, who knows?

    Waiting another 6 months is a wlak in the park compared to the mud we went through


    that said i do hope you get in,,,,, just after me

    I am one of the 6019 guys that did the run and there was no class. Then I joined EMS a few years after. Maybe that's why I'm so ****ed off. Just another bad dream all over again.

    No. I factored in the dropouts plus the people that were held back for the July class for whatever read. So I say on average probably a little less that.

    Dumbass in the current class who posted stuff on instagram earlier in the year posted something again. Wearing uniform + the classic flat rimmed baseball hat. Uses everybody's favorite N word. Comes off super ghetto. Everybody on the job knows about it. Don't be that guy.

    im assuming he is talking about the isometric at the top of the push up position. If you dont know what isometrics are simply look that up. I dunno why an isometric[at top] hold would help...

    Im doing this for next six weeks twice a week ... (pull up, dip,push-up and row) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRZMJYTCS9E
    If anyone can this for the full min and half you are a beast. I can only do max 22 seconds hold in each position for pull up

    Im guessing they make you hold the up position for long periods of times.

    Correct. And sometimes, if you're lucky, down position as well.

    say:
    20 EMS
    50 out of 60 recycles
    50 PH

    Thats 120 spots there and leaves 200 spots for OC. At a 3:1 ratio that would put them up near 600 on the OC list. Remember all these numbers could be higher or lower, including the ratio.

    I'm still praying and hoping for a 1:5 ratio ... What's the highest list number that has completed everything so far on the oc ?

    even if this class doesnt reach a 1:5 ratio, I think its definitely possible for most of the classes in the future to have that ratio.

    I think just about 1000 on the OC list have completed everything including their medical. Maybe even just above 1000.

    My mentor keeps telling me I'm on the borderline for January so to be ready just Incase, but I guess well never really know until we get the run letters, till then fingers crossed and keep running

    does anyone know what the physical award winner for the previous class achieved?

    1.5 mile run time, pushups, situps and pull-ups?

    From what I heard, 121. Given the ratio, I literally should have been the next person in the academy.

    After Doing my intense math I need the ratio to increase periodically as the classes go by 1:6 1:7 1:8 it's the only way my number would be reach "/ ...it would also help if these mules stop resigning 3 times and wasting what could be my spot

    did he mention where he heard this from, or is it just the word going around?

    Run letters should be going out during Christmas week. Best Christmas present I can think of... lol. I actually spoke to my investigator last week who told me they'd be doing a final check of people soon which i assume means those who have a chance for January.

    Also I found out through sources that your reference information isn't a deciding factor about whether you get into a class or not. if they send them out they send them out. If not, it doesn't mean you aren't going in. Why they wouldn't send them out i don't know except that they are probably swamped at this point or they feel they don't need to.
