    Spoke with my investigator today for some random questions I had. Apparently they are still rushing to process people for the class this month. So it seems like there will in fact be another run date before this class.
    List # 12XX

    How out of shape are you ? I'm in the same boat as you .did you complete the run under 12 mins?

    If I had to guess I would assume they give you 30 days to get it done if you haven't already.

    I'm so happy I double checked my card for CPAT training this morning because if not I would have been at the rock at 6 today. Don't know if anyone would have made the same mistake but CPAT training starts on Jan. 20th.

    you can age out on the list...dcas will let anyone who pays to take the test take it. it is up to your investigator to verify age or extra point requirements. the same way people can claim points, but not actually use them unless they are verified by the department. i know this personally because i was allowed to take the test even though i was over age

    It's also up to the individual to read and understand the NOE. I know it gets tricky with people using their military time to extend the age limit, but otherwise it seems pretty clear cut to me.

    that wouldnt be aging out. That would be someone taking the exam even though they are ineligible due to being past the age limit.

    If the first day to file for the fdny exam is jan1st and you turn 29 on jan 2nd then u can apply. Doesn't matter if u dont get hired until ur 36

    I think i did it in 10:50 but not 100 % sure because they were calling out times and i wasnt focused.my problem is i have a lot of belly fat right now im like 185 and 5"11 a lot is fat though.i need to lose like 10-15 pounds of fat because i was really winded even in my jog to the run and afterwards I was dying.the only thing that helped me was the adrenaline and running -keeping up with the in shape dudes in front of me and I have a little bit of soccer history.

    congrats on those who passed the run today. job well done! any word on there being three classes this year? i know that floated around a while back and we all took it seriously and now seems like the feeling is they are going to go with two classes this year.

    anyhow, congrats all around. good luck in the academy

    There's no point in printing out that many pages, just read it digitally and the academy will give you a hard copy when it comes time.

    I used my college's $100 printing card to print out black and white on front and back pages. About time I get my money's worth on reading material that I will teach me things that I am actually going to apply in real life. So long biology slides!

    When participating in Jiu Jitsu, my professor recommended these awesome knee pads from McDavid called "Hex Pads".

He says they fit great under his gear and are very comfortable. I don't know if that helps but they're 25 bucks for one pair.

    just an update for my status... list 60# did not get a run letter after days of trying to contact someone i found out what the issue was. there was a hickup in my veterans paperwork. basically they needed an updated version of my dd214 which i will be unable to get in time for this class. kinda bummed since i submitted all this stuff back in may, and it would have been nice to get a heads up sooner than the last minute. but good thing is when i get back from active duty in oct i should be on the top of the list

    Anyone else in the last batch of psychs and medicals not receive anything ? I have a friend in the 900's that hadn't received either yet. He called his investigator but that was like talking to a wall he said.
