    Ms Quinn told the late 101s 1800-2200 during intake that we were being processed for 2015.

    And on another note, I passed my CPAT!
    Yeah, I agree; the early 101's are most likely slated for the july class. I myself have already taken my medical, however, I have not received a notice for the psych; will be asking my interviewer about that soon. CPAT coming within the next week or so.

    Congrats on the CPAT, can not wait to get that out of the way; how did u find it compared to practicing at the rock?

    Watching the the news, they're covering the building explosion in Harlem. A reminder of the types of emergencies we are all signing up to deal with. My resolve to become a member of the FDNY just become a whole lot stronger! Iam going to super hard on that stair master today..

    I was so excited to get it done that I ran to get the hose and I was warned once before they failed me. At DCAS the hose drag and dummy drag felt easier because of the wooden floors. It took me 9 hits with the hammer to get it to buzz and in the rock it took me 20 hits to get the tire across the table. The breathing was a bit easier because you are indoors instead of breathing the freezing cold outside at the Rock. Also, most failures came from the ladder raise. Don't let the rope slide through your fingers.

    Wow, ppl failed because of letting the rope slide?! Thanks, that's good to know..I will be making sure to hold on to that rope with a death grip. Also won't be trying for a speed run, Iam planning to go at a controlled pace, concentrating on doing the proper technique.

    Yes, control of the ladder is a critical part of the test. Like you said, the CPAT is easy enough to complete in time that you should be taking it at a controlled pace. You're more likely to **** something up like the ladder if you rush.


    Went to the rock recently. Still a lotta roll ups hahaha. You guys looked good though.

    Yeah man, that's one thing they particularly have been stressing at cpat practice. Don't rush through the ladder extension. Control it and slow down a little if you have to. There's no need to break records with this test, you just need to pass. And if you're in any decent shape, you've been knocking it out at the rock and will still pass even taking your time at the extension.

    Edit: MM beat me to it haha

    Quick question for those with a score of 101. Anybody hear anything regarding people receiving the reference letters, from employers or friends? Had my intake in january, as of yet i Have not heard of anybody receiving any letters. I am only asking because i am not entirely sure my boss would let me know.

    Did you have all your papers and your investigator didn't give you a checklist of things you were missing ?

    Thank you. The majority of us want and deserve to be there. The few INDIVIDUALS with roll ups do not. Hence the roll ups haha.

    PT tomorrow in 26 degree weather. Can't wait!

    A standard length of 2.5" diameter hose folded so that it can easily be carried into a standpipe building. They are used as a motivational tool in the academy.

    Went back through the last 10-15 pages and tried to see where in the process I am. My list is #3000ish, so I'm looking to get my first contact letter in Nov. 14 and looking to get processed for July 15 or Jan. 16?

    From what I gather it seems like give or take 11 months at the longest before you get into the academy. My friend who got his paper work march of last year went into the January class with a list number in the range of 33X. It may be sooner going forward with promotional/priority being done with and less people still wanting the job. Also my friend who is 92X started his process early sept 2013 and is slated for the July class. See the trend going with? I'm no way 100 percent sure but it's the only thing keeping me sane at 263X

    If it were my guess I'd say you'd be good for July '15 dude.

    How's It going fellas?
    Any info would be appreciated on this.
    It was touched on but couldn't find an answer on previous pages.

    1. - So, I was cleared from the medical, but like many failed the stairmaster challenge due to exceeding my target heartrate.
    2. - I was allowed to retest on the stairmaster a few weeks later. As I was testing, I decided to look down at the time (7 minutes in). This caused me to accelerate my step and stumble forward. I quickly regained my posture but was to far to the left. I tapped the rail with the back of my left hand to readjust my position. At this point I was ushered off the stairmaster. Testing was concluded - Proposed Medical Disqualification
    3. - Has anyone experienced this, and successfully appealed?

    =/

    I know =/
    The way it works;
    If you show signs of disorientation, lack of control, or extreme exhaustion the doctor at hand can stop the test at any moment.

    From an examiners perspective it easily seemed as though I was losing control.
    Which I did, but it was due to nerves not exhaustion.
    Which is irrelevant at this point =/
    my concern now is if by appealing I still have a chance at this prestigious career.


    My Advice;
    take each step in this process as your last, so you can intensely prepare for any unforeseen challenge.
