    No, I haven't heard anything, I know how you feel though. Basically my entire future relies on if I get this letter for the run or not.

    That's not that early, if the run is around 2 weeks after the letter arrives that's sometime mid January which is around the 2 weeks before the Academy would begin.

    Are the run letters send out in waves? For example, If I don't receive a letter around the 23rd, is it possible I could receive one at a later date? I can't imagine they know the exact amount of letters to send out because some people will fail, some won't take and some will take it. I just pray I get that damn letter. Like chad, my life is depending on it as well haha. If I have to go another 6 months with this dead end job just barely making rent, I'll go crazy.

    How are you so sure? (not to say that i'm doubting you. I pray that you are right)

    Also, do emails also go out on the 23rd? That would mean we would know the day of, instead of waiting a few days for it to show up in the mail

    My future also depends on this run letter getting here. this job is everything to me..I need to get in man.

    Yeah I remember back in January some of the guys on here were saying that they got their run letters via email. Not sure if everybody gets an email or not.

    I head the same thing. And other people have posted the same date. It seems that's the date that everyone's inside guy is saying. It's consistent.

I have faith the process will pick up and we'll all get our shot within the next few years...
    The city generally hires on a 1:3 or 1:4 ratio from what I understand so there's no reason to expect something different, assuming there are no hiccups of any kind. It's likely that the further down the list goes, the larger the ratio will grow, due to a number of factors (disinterest in the job, content with current career, failure to prove residency [which will drop candidates significantly further down the list], etc.)

    From past lists, the city usually hires on a 3:1 or 4:1 ratio, so I think that will hold true again, especially when the list starts moving further down.
    The very top of any list is always going to contain the most serious of candidates who want the job. that's probably why they aren't going that deep. plus there's people recycling and all that crap.

    won't really know the true ratio until they go lower and lower and the lower they go the more people they'll probably need to process for each class.

    BTW i can confirm dec 23rd is definitely the date letters emails calls are going out.

    With all these definite rumors of the 23rd is it possible anyone has any other definite rumors? lol I'm desperate for some rumors that this 388 number is BS and this class will get past it lol

    Hey guys, I had a question in regards to stair training for the medical. For guys that passed the medical exam on the first shot, what was your routine like? Did you monitor your HR? What was your HR at the begining of your training? How long did it take to get your HR at the passing requirement (Under 90% of max HR)? Also if anyone has any good info on how to train to lower your HR or past experience with this I would really appreciate it, thanks guys, happy holidays.

    Heartrate is a tricky beast because there are a couple suggestions:

    1. Buy a quality HR monitor. Preferably the wireless linked wristwatch/chest combo.

    2. INTERVAL TRAINING. INTERVAL TRAINING. INTERVAL TRAINING. INTERVAL TRAINING. REPEAT.
    *This is the key to lowering your heartrate during exercise*

    3. Find a gym with a stairmill and a weightvest and train to complete the event in a time that exceeds the minimum.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Polar FT1. Its the cheapest of their HR watches but it gets the job done, it has the chest transmitter. Do you think its good? Its been working good for me lol. Also I have been doing 100 flights of stairs with 50 pounds 4x a week. Im just hoping I can get my HR down lol.

    I'm over 388 and mine says "not on outstanding certification." I have heard the rumors that it means that I'm just waiting on the run letter, but who knows.

    In my case I always train on level 6 on my stepmill which is equivelant to 60 Steps/ Minute (FDNY Medical Stepmill Speed)...I counted 15 steps a minute when I first started training on the stepmill.
