    Its a lap and a half around these baseball fields on Randall's island right next to the Rock. I marked it in runningmap.

    1 full lap is exactly a mile hence the loop and a half.

Plus if they let you do all other steps, I dont get why they wont let you do the run.

    Do you have any idea how many EMS are left and how many out of that total are in your situation.

    Good luck man,hope this changes in your favor.
    Thanks, just so frustrating when they tell you your good for the class and then they said ...oh wait never mind mind you have to wait. You get mentally prepared for the the class so its a serious let down. I believe between my EMT top class and the Tour 2 class had about 15-20 guys that are on the promotional. If you factor in the EMT dropouts, Id imagine less then 75 left.

    Dude,,, you dont have to tell us 6019 guys,,,,, Getting the run letter and passing with the offer only to have it rescinded and wait another 6 years with haveing the test cancelled and retaking the new one prob one of the most grueling frustrating things in the entire world......


    Waiting another 6 months is a wlak in the park compared to the mud we went through

    Are you referring to EMT dropouts from this current class? 55 out of the 60 dropouts are EMS?

    No, I didn't get that email the other day, but I think it may be the same one that was sent out a couple weeks ago. If anyone can chime in, but it was sent in one of those recruitment newsletter emails, correct? If so, I've pretty much stopped reading those.

    I just tried looking through my mail boxes but couldn't find it. So, I have no idea what's up with that email. It seems like the people who posted about it are further down on the list, out of range for this upcoming class or the next, who knows?

    I am one of the 6019 guys that did the run and there was no class. Then I joined EMS a few years after. Maybe that's why I'm so ****ed off. Just another bad dream all over again.

    No. I factored in the dropouts plus the people that were held back for the July class for whatever read. So I say on average probably a little less that.

    Dumbass in the current class who posted stuff on instagram earlier in the year posted something again. Wearing uniform + the classic flat rimmed baseball hat. Uses everybody's favorite N word. Comes off super ghetto. Everybody on the job knows about it. Don't be that guy.

    im assuming he is talking about the isometric at the top of the push up position. If you dont know what isometrics are simply look that up. I dunno why an isometric[at top] hold would help...

    Im doing this for next six weeks twice a week ... (pull up, dip,push-up and row) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRZMJYTCS9E
    If anyone can this for the full min and half you are a beast. I can only do max 22 seconds hold in each position for pull up

    Im guessing they make you hold the up position for long periods of times.

    Correct. And sometimes, if you're lucky, down position as well.

    say:
    20 EMS
    50 out of 60 recycles
    50 PH

    Thats 120 spots there and leaves 200 spots for OC. At a 3:1 ratio that would put them up near 600 on the OC list. Remember all these numbers could be higher or lower, including the ratio.

    I'm still praying and hoping for a 1:5 ratio ... What's the highest list number that has completed everything so far on the oc ?
