Yes, this may be true, but nothing is gonna happen to fix your issue here.
    Racist comments, and comments that they don't deserve it will just ignite your emotions and get you further away from your goal. Posting a article about FDNY banning Christmas pictures does nothing for this thread, just frustrate people. Open another thread and have at it. Physically train if you don't get on now, get a higher score on the written exam. These are things you can do to help yourself get on. Like I said before, you guys should've opened your own thread instead of posting and having guys skim through post like these to find out info they came here to look for.
    Well said. I have my run letter and won't give two craps about how the ppl that will be in my squad got on. There's nothing you can do about it. Judge them on their work ethic.

    maybe i'm just used to things happening like this, because it happens all day in the military, people getting promoted because of who they know, people getting awards that they dont deserve and people taking other peoples spots.

    jky9xx there was no offense meant towards the emt comment, just , meaning we have all aged a bit since we first decided to try to get on including me. i was 225 with 8% bodyfat 7 years ago when i began trying to get on, i am now 7 years older and weigh 228 with 15% body fat, which would certainly increase my chances of injury during the academy

    At this point you should all stop complaining about anything other than not improving yourself. Some of us have been dealt a worse hand than others; I understand, but it is what it is. Pointing fingers doesn't solve anything. Like my boy grok said, judge people based on their character and work ethic. No one knows anyone else to be passing any kind of judgement on anyone else. Worry about improving yourself. When you get into the academy you won't have the luxury of judging anyone, everyone will be on the same level striving to achieve the same goal. That's my two cents for the year, Happy New Year everyone, may it be filled with success, love, and happiness.

    Did anyone else hear that the other 2 days for the run are January 9th and 10th?

    That would mean Monday Jan 20th for orientation and Monday Jan 27th for the academy start date?

    Hope they continue with the emails today.

    Idk. I haven't heard any rumors but at the same time, it feels a little farfetched that all 150 (or 75 if you split them into day and evening) would run on the same track. Either way, I'm ready . No emails from my investigator or crappy voicemails saying I need last minute paperwork.

    The CPAT orientation prep courses are set to start on January 20. I am planning on traveling oversees and I need to book my flight.

    I'd like to know how many days per week and for how many weeks are the prep courses? Is it possible to miss the first prep course and show up only to the last few prep courses?

    Also, will you meet your investigator on CPAT orientation day and can you hand in some paperwork? Thank you.
