Ill present the same question to everyone else with a random number they have thrown out...

FYI IF YOU PANIC YOU CANT THINK. EVERYONE TAKE A ****ING BREATH AND LOOK AND REALIZE THEY ARE GOING TO GET HIGHER

LOL... well,,, someone said their mentor said they are getting just up to 700,,, and seeing as how they got up to 360 for only 1 date,, and there is 3 different run dates,,, then i would assume that there needs to be at the very least another 100 names callled... if they get to 360 or so and if the ratio is the worst 3:1 then your looking at another 300 or so spots add if ppl who dont want it and or fail for some other reason then you get about 350 more names,,,,

ohh and im list #65x, so hoping it will go that high

2. Maybe they'll send out 23 more waves of letters so they'll get to my number...or not...

3. Coldbood92 I hope you get a call because seeing your interval workouts, I know you will be the first one finished at the run. I do hope the letters keep coming and hit a high number for everyone's sake and sanity haha! I'm living the drama with you guys even though I'm sitting at 20xx. Go out for a run everyone it's the best thing we can do at this point

4. DC33017, how does that make sense? Assuming they went from 102-360 someone said was the highest person to get a run letter. If all things being even and that was everyone for first day run wouldnt it be fair to assume they get another 250 names for each day? Getting in the neighborhood of 850? I mean...remember 3:1 ratio means 1out of 4 people...200 spots yields 800 numbers called...just saying...
P.S. think the ratio probably be higher than 3:1

I have no idea what number they will reach, im not trying to be negative, but I don't want to be carelessly optimistic and get my hopes up. but heres 2 different sources im going by:

#1) when I went for CPAT training, 2 different instructors there said if your in the 700's range you better start preparing now because your on the borderline for January's class.

#2) a guy at my gym this week who knows somebody that works in FDNY recruitment, told me that the guy he knows said they are going to call up to the 600's for this class.

I was like a third through it, but I'm starting it again now that this semester is over. During the school semesters I have way too much reading going on. I had a pretty awesome class on Hazardous Materials this last semester.

Be real careful with that ... Specially if you in the west side village !!!

20. So I called my investigator cuz I had to change something with my info and got a little bit of good news.

She said that between today, Thur, and fri they still have a lot of work to do and there will be more letters going out definitely. She said my list number is on the fence but she does plan on submitting it for final review very soon for possibly the January class depending on how many people defer, fail, etc.

Sitting low low 900's. So take it for what you will but it cheered me up.

Great news bro. Does that mean more emails will go out today? Want to know if I should risk getting smacked for being near my phone at dinner time lol

22. Veteran in need of help

Does anyone know if you can get DQ'd if you have a service-connected disability? I'm at 30% and I am trying to figure out if I can still get in. I received my package about 2 weeks ago and i am very excited on becoming a FF. I am also 31 yo will that eliminate me as well? Thank you all and happy holidays!

the age won't dq you as long as you have the active duty time and the % won't matter either. They just will take a look at it. I got in with 60% and just had to see the othro doc to get cleared.

24. I just received my run letter.

25. List number? Date?
