    Unless she is military or something I don't see how that is possible. Once the review process starts they can't also be administering the exam and review/protesting it at the same time.

    like roadrunner mentioned, that's not a lot of hires over 4 years. If retirements are only 300 a year that still opens up 1200 spots before factoring in the department being under headcount now.

    Until the review sessions have started, then they can change anything I imagine. Never underestimate any of this sh1t.

    That's true, but I find this hard to believe. Even if this woman did need to postpone the test to study, she could have 15 days and take it on the 20th. Just sounds a little off to me.

    That sounds like it would be too many. Even at every 20 weeks and 300 guys they would get through list # 7000 with a conservative ratio of 2.5:1. They didn't get that deep on the 2002 test, would be shocked to see that happen now.

    You have to take in the promo guys in each academy as well. Also, They haven't hired in four years. Where 7000 is definitely pushing it I would have to imagine that as long as this test goes along without any hang ups in the court system it would still get pretty deep.
    FDNY Exam 6019 List# 14XX.
    Lawsuit Victim: Completed process, cancelled academy.

    FDNY Exam 2000 List# 6XX.

    You can prob speak to this better than me, but before the lawsuit held up 6019, didn't budget $ pose a problem first? I would think once they hire quick to make up for the shortage now that things would slow down to the city only replacing the retired guys. Even if that is the case though, that should bring the list to around 5000, which is pretty deep, no? Also, like you said, assuming the test is even OK'd to use.

    I just looked on the old 2043 thread and from what it says in there they got between list #'s 5,400 and last appointed was just before the 5,700's.

    That exam was given in December 2002.
    Not sure when the list was established but the last class hired was Jan 2008. That exam(2043) expired around June 2012 because list # 6019 was established June 2012.

    First and only class from 6019 was hired in July 2012.

    how about the fact that after the exam in the survey portion when they asked what radio station you heard about the exam on...the choices were 97.1, 97.9, 105.1, and 107.5.


    thats not racist at all...

    they cant grade the personality questions. i think they will use them as a reference for when they do the background and see if they can catch you in a lie.

    If some one got a 97 on the 2002 test, how many did they get wrong?

    they tend to make exceptions for women. This wouldn't surprise me

    I can't believe no one has confirmed whether or not we'll have any idea of how we did on the exam before we show up for the protest/review. Am I the only one who thinks that's the last place they want to get their results? And what about the people who do get perfect scores, they're gonna show up & find out they wasted their time?

    It's amazing they had damn near 5 years to work on this thing and it's even more of a cluster**** than it was last time around.

    Yea that is aggravating me quite a bit as well. I don't see how that is beneficial to anyone, even them. Do they really want EVERYONE showing up? I doubt that since they are only two review sites.

    I'm not opposed to lettting people take the test if they missed it. When they don't show up again, city lawyers can prove without a shadow of a doubt that those who took the test want to be FDNY and those that didn't show up weren't kept out because of race, creed or sex; they just didn't want to be FDNY.

    Also, can we enact a moratorium on talks of academy numbers? Last time was last time; different than any other time and was five years ago. We haven't even gotten the test results let alone how much the City's budget will affect the hiring. Remember budget > need. These talks only cloud an otherwise useful thread.

    For anyone that has scheduled a review session, did you notice that the required identification requirements state that you need Identification, Admission Ticket, and Admission Notice. Do they mean that you need the receipt that you get prompted to print after you apply for the protest session? Did anyone get slightly confused by that?
