    just talked to my investigator today. she says i need my official transcript from my private HS and then my residency credit paper work is good. I also need 3 proofs of current residency. She said that i can give both credit card bills and bank statements but they need to be from different banks, which i do not understand because i only use one bank. I lived at home all my life so i do not have cable of phone bills. she said that i can also provide a w2 form from 2012 and that will count for current residency. I mentioned about notarized letters about my current residency and she said that is not acccepted, only by the EMT position which doesnt make sense as well. She said just look at the list for acceptable documents and thats all i can use. I also mentioned if i can provide car insurance bills, but she denied that as well. I feel that she is not sure what is accepted.

    Just a FYI, when the investigator says you are good, it just means that they can start processing the paperwork. They can still come back later on asking for more paperwork, happened to me and others.

    Hey all. Glad to hear that the machine is moving and to all the guys whom make it to the Jan class: All the best. I have a quick question, I know there is no way of getting a definitive answer but I'll settle for an educated guess. I am thinking of volunteering with either Team Rubicon or another similar group this summer. It's a disaster response team always in need of medical professionals(any other Veterans out there who are paramedics, nurses, P.A's, physicians you should look into it) the only issue is they require a 36hr response commitment time. My number is in the 1500's. Is there any chance I could be called for the summer academy? I don't want to sign up and not follow through but I also want to be here for the academy if there is any possibility of it happening. Any suggestions, thoughts, comments would be greatly appreciated.

Once i hit the 6 minute mark, i was able to do an extra minute the next time. Key is to NEVER do less than you did the last time. If u did 6 minutes on ur last session, then you can NEVER do less than 6 minutes ever again. Never look back. Even if all u can do is an extra 10 seconds, then do it. Dont ever say anything like "Damn, i know last time i did 6:20 but today im tired, so im only gonna do 5 minutes". If u did 6:20 last time and today u are feeling a little tired, then just do 6:30, as long as its not the same or less. Also gave myself 2-3 days rest between each session. Rest is also key. First time i actually reached 8 minutes, i had'nt hit the stairs for a whole week prior.

    P.S: one time i tried to be Hercules threw in 5 sets of heavy leg presses after the stairs. Great workout but i couldnt "get it up" for wifey later on that night lol. Definetely DONT overtrain. You'll lose too much testoterone.

    lol another investigator that does'nt like to accept car insurance. SHE IS WRONG! I just gave my investigator my car insurance bill and she said im all good. But make sure you stress the fact that its the car insurance BILL and not the car insurance auto ID. The girl probably thinks you're referring to the auto id card. If she still says "no" in reference to the BILL, then request a different investigator or make her ask her supervisor. Worked for me.

    But of course, if you actually CAN retrieve your H.S transcript then just give her what she ask for. The next candidate who doesnt have a transcript will put her in line if they know better.

    Wait so notarized letter works for the residency period, but not current? And are you using the under-21 at time of application for residency?

    It sounds like every investigator tells their candidates something different. You would think they would all get together and confirm what's acceptable and whats not lol.

    to tell you the honest truth, I am so confused with all this. she tells me different things each time and i can barely understand her accent and she speaks so quietly. but i will get what she asks of me and whatever i cannot get, i will bring other things that may work and ask someone who is of higher authority. I am using some of the under 21 application for residency. but a bigger problem is current residency.

    I'm sure everything will work out. From what I'm hearing from all of you guys and people I know going through is that some of them are really a pain, but if you actually lived/live here, you'll find a way to prove it that works. I better start praying now that I get a good investigator haha.

    Hey guys, hoping for a little input here.

    I'm at list number #44xx. Based on how the list has been moving along, how realistic is it that I'll be called? Thanks, guys.

    Unless things have changed,

    Notarized letters for residency are only good for Ems applications as someone already previously mentioned. For firefighter it is not a generally accepted item.

    And everyone here I hope realizes as far as current residency that it doesn't have to be within nyc limits. This can include Nassau, Suffolk, Putnam, orange etc. you just have to prove you live where you currently say you live. One piece of mail, a credit card statement, a bank statement, any bill that has your name on it, that's easy.

    Just as an FYI you can add a name to pretty much any bank account be it checking or savings, then print out that months statement and it'll have your name on the account. It doesn't show the date you were added or who the primary account holder is(which doesn't matter), but your name is then on a statement registered to that house. So if you live with a friend or parents just have them add you and then take you off later.

    The nysc discount is $30 a month instead of 40 but you can't go peak hours from 4pm-8pm. Definitely sign up there or some other gym with stairs because the medical stair session will be longer and harder than cpat. Cpat is more weight but only 3min. Chances are for medical you'll be walking for 8min

    If you can ace the cpat the medical for 8 mins should be no problem.

In only 5 weeks i went from being able to go for just a little over 4 minutes to, now, a whole 10 minutes (give or take a few seconds lol). How long can u stay on right now?
    Im using a 60 pound vest.. My 60 pound vest feels alot more challenging than the 50 pounds not just because its 10 pounds heavier, but because it goes over your shoulders, where as the 50 pound vest you wear on test doesn't go over shoulders and is worn like a jacket. So Idk that makes the weight feel more like its weighing down, which is a good thing for me to train with a harder vest.

    Right now I can stay on about 4 minutes at 60 steps a minute.
