    Sure why not? Haha, I'm thinking they ping the OC list for 200 spots this class and do so at about a 4:1. Seeing as how they already got to 102 I just added 800 to that. Might be a bit optimistic but we'll see.

    They've always done a certified list, just I don't think back then you could call DCAS and get that info.

    A certified list is basically a new list of all the candidates who are ready to be hired. Your list number on a certified list is always higher too. Lets say your 1000 on the OC list, and a couple hundred people don't make it through the process, then on the certified list your number will be up a couple hundred spots.

    yea exactly what i meant. I figured they always had the list, I just dont remember it being publically available like this. I dont recall in past forums discussing the certified list and knowing a "number" (388 in this case) before hand lol

It is a shame, because the department will surely suffer from these groups pressuring the department and city. A lot of people in the city won't be sleeping well wondering if the fireman coming to save them earned their spot rather than given their spot.

    I see why it's an easy target. The old physical was incredibly tough from what everyone says. Women had a tough time at it. Now the physical is the CPAT, and for good reason. So instead the job introduced FST at some point (it was definitely in use in 2008, not sure when it was actually introduced), which is kinda like what the original physical was. Women have a tough time at FST so it must be another sexist barrier to their entry in their department. It can't just be that FST is tough and that women and a lot of guys have trouble with it, gotta be a conspiracy.

    Unfortunately, no. These women in the department have earned their spots the hard way. I really can't understand why they would want lower physical standards for new women to get on. And this goes for the Vulcans too. They all got in through hardwork and earning their spots. Why would they fight to lower the testing standards?

    got an email from my investigator saying i needed to submit a few pieces of info to her..i submitted all my documents back in april or so. list # low 600's. just a heads up, they ask you for more stuff unless they are reviewing your folder for the upcoming academy. doesnt mean i'm in but it does mean my list number has been hit, at that rate they may get the 800's as some of you are stating

    Not that I agree with them but, their argument is not with the FST itself but the new standards.

    In 2008 you did the fst and as long as you completed the course you passed and even if you failed it wasn't a critical failure that could prevent you from graduating or even just continuing the academy. It was timed but that was it.

    Now, probably because of the cpat getting easier, in order to pass each fst you have to do it within the time limit, not run out of air which never mattered in the past, and on top of that it's a critical pass/fail which means if you fail it you can potentially be kicked from the academy and left to recycle.

    I personally like those standards better than the old ones but this is why they're annoyed.

    True barometer of my age, I equate this more with Happy Gilmore that the actual show.

    Alright gents, I have a single piece to the puzzle as to what number they'll hit with the run letters...not that I found out in a good way. My investigator sent me an email that she's missing residency docs (trust me, she has them) and it "is very important that I get them to [her] ASAP!"

    I'm #53*, and will me at 9MT in the am.

    Is that current proof of residency or actually residency documents?? You just have me a bit more hope. I'm in the late 500's and am feeling on the fence.
