    From 9 Metrotech today:

    There is a run tomorrow to fill the last few spots for the 14th. They reached list #1346.

    (this information came from earlier today. A few more people could have been contacted later in the afternoon)

    BHS is procesing up to list #1873, currently. More will follow.

    They currently anticipate reaching 2,000+/- for January.

    Lean on the guys who have the military background, and just keep your eye on the prize. There arent any tricks or anything (ok thats a lie, tylenol PM to guarantee me 8 solid hrs of sleep when i walked in my house at night seemed to help).

    Thanks for the information!! I know there were rumors floating around a few months back about a class every 20 weeks. Have you heard anything about that? Seems like they are sticking with the 2 class a year, based on guys I've talked to, but you seem to have better information than the people I know OTJ.

    Thanks, again for sharing and helping out new and potentially new candidates.

    Whatever you want. Guys wear black knee highs because 1. you need black socks when in regular uniform 2. most guys experience chafing if they wear the rubber bunker boots with PT shorts. With nothing covering your calves you get bad chafing. Black knee highs take care of both. I wore em all the time through the academy. Throwing those ****ing socks out at the end was an amazing feeling.

    Regular lockers fine. I probably wouldn't in bunker gear lockers.

    It is an adjustment, but just put your head down and focus on the day to day. Before you know it you'll be at the halfway point. No joke: early on I was having pretty big second thoughts. I really wasn't sure that I could do it, and I thought for sure they'd weed me out. I would not quit though. Being an all EMS class there were too many friends/coworkers and I couldn't be another one of those jerkoffs that quit 2-3 weeks on, so I just kept going. My thought was if it wasn't meant to be I'd probably end up hurting myself in some dumb way like falling off a ladder. Before I realized it I'd made it past the 6-8 mark and was doing well. That was when I got some confidence and stopped worrying about that ****. It was still tough, but it was manageable.

    It's going to be hard, just remember it's worth it and there is a reason for everything.

    Far as I know we're assuming that we'll be heading to PERB.

    Hey, if I have metal screws in my hand from a previous surgery, would that disqualify me from the fd? Someone told me that recently and now I'm panicky.

    Is your friend referring to the "prepare yourself" email for the academy/countdown to the academy. Thought it was a mass email, but seems some people arent getting it

    I've been getting those messages too. Should I be concerned. Never heard from my investigator. I've got like 3 of them that say things like " countdown to academy" " the academy is around the corner, are you ready?? Commit to be fit" lol. I was thinking they sent those emails to candidates that were 100 +/- to the current list just Incase they get called. It doesn't mean your in, right?

    He said that crossed his mind but it was personalized and said his name specifically etc. I would rather not guess and let him tell me as he figures it out.

    Those emails are personalized. I have been getting them since early june. I would assume they send them out to everyone finished with the process, i could be wrong?

    Does it actually say for him to appear at a specific time and place? If so, i would definitely show up; if it does indeed say so and is not a vague statement about the academy approaching and getting ready.

    And he hasn't done his run? Has he tried contacting his investigator?

    He says she ignored his emails etc. I talked to him over the phone so I could be missing something.

    I would rather not speculate. I feel I am intruding.

    Lol, no joke. I read that the list is based off the last 5 of SSN, rather than last 4... that cost me 4 digits. And hundreds in my list #
