    I'm on the same boat as you!

    I would have to check with guys at my house but I think a decade ago the academy was 5 weeks shorter, which changes things pretty drastically. That's 15 less weeks of training if you were trying to do 3 a year.

    It can insomuch as the first week of 1 class and the last week of another could reasonably overlap, though they don't really have 2 large rooms that can fit a whole class at a time, just the one. This assumes that the instructors and everybody else that make the academy function aren't human and don't need time off from the schedule there.

Have your 3 references that you put down received anything in the mail? Also, have any of your prior work places received anything? I know someone around our list numbers who said his CURRENT work place got something in the mail.
    Hey dude, if you don't mind can you personal message me who your investigator is? I have heard from many people with higher list numbers that their references have received the letters. I haven't been informed that there is any problem with my investigation and my references haven't received anything. Anyone know if this is a reason to be concerned??

    yea I remember the LT. who runs the academy saying that there is a class going January and the class after would be going in in late May early June. He also said that the plan is for the department to hire alot for the next couple of years.

    Hey man, I rather not only because I haven't said the most kind words about him/her on this page. I'm calling my investigator tomorrow to figure it all out. Hopefully all is well.

    No problem completely understand. I called two days ago and got one word answers. Just trying to figure out when the reference letters are going out and can't seem to get an answer from mine. Good luck.

    Just a random investigation question if anyone has any insight, on the residence part of the packet I obviously am writing my home address, but I went away to college and bc I lived there for over 3 months I will write my addresses at college from the 4 years. Just wondering if this will have any negative effect or if they just take into account I was at school but I was the whole time a NYC resident

    I don't see the big hurry to get them to send out the reference letters, they have so much on their plate. If you are on the list to get in, they will get them out to your references. That is something you can't control, you guys need to concentrate on the things you can, like W2s, bank statements, drivers abstract, and SS printout, etc.

    I don't seeing that being a problem, since you were (most likely) under your parents support at that time. I feel like a lot of people went away to school but were NYC residents and were also being claimed as dependents by their parents at the time. But then again, I don't know. I commuted -_-

    The Rock cannot accomodate 2 classes at once. One class of 300+ stretches accommodations to the breaking point. There are only so many lockers for both firefighting gear and personal affects.

    I feel like they needed to make it a little more clear how they will deal with situations like this. I kind of have the opposite situation. I was a college senior in the Bronx at the time they are asking for residency. At this time I was "supported by my parents financially", and my parents and I are from Long Island. Its just such a weird situation because I had an off campus apartment (with lease and bills) for the whole year they are asking, thus being a new york city resident while being supported by my parents on Long Island. I have also since maintained city residency in hopes to show consistency. Who knows how this will play out...

    Yea they definitely should've been more clear. I was 19 at the time of app and luckily went to school/lived here. I'm guessing they gave that u-21 option for residency for that reason, but who knows when it comes to the city's way of thinking. I guess if you have the bills and stuff though, there'd be no need to show you were a dependent, right?

    Well I've been through the whole investigation process already. I've done every step in the hiring process minus the 1.5 mile run. I'm just making sure zero paperwork goes missing, as its happened in the past and can easily happen to any candidate who's not on top of their investigator.

    If I can remember correctly, that was one of the last things done in the process. I had most if my stuff in, anthem my references let me know that they received the letters.

    I overheard instructors at the rock talking before the cpat orientation started.

    They said cassano wants to do more than 2 a year but they are waiting on approval.

    That makes sense being the the Lt. said the next class after this January one, will be "starting in the spring- late May or early June." If that's the case then that means they are trying rush a class in immediately after the January one because the January class would be ending in mid to late May.
