    Meaning they won't be back? Or are they due for next class? Anyhow that sucks. It only took one guy to ruin another's dream.

    If you miss more than 5 days you get dropped and have to try again. Also who the hell knows how MRSA showed up there. Honestly I'm shocked it only spread to less than a dozen.

    Yeah, I'd assume it would be more widespread. I'm not sure how the academy is physically setup, so maybe it was just one squad or something like that where they were close quarters.

    Yeah, I forgot about that. Guess they didn't clean enough.

    Think they should be getting new bunker gear sooner?

    I know it's all old used gear. Or is it a cleaning thing?

    all i know is its 2014 and you are talking about 2017, i'd look for something in the meantime, when the announcement comes, you and everyone else in the northeast will know about it...

    as far as the next round of packets, im early 99 - 33xx so I will either just be cut out or will know if theyre dipping in to early 99s, hoping to get rolling asap obviously

    All the 101's got packets. The 100s are due up any day now, with another 3 years to go on this list. With that being said I can't believe that the 99's (including myself) will miss the cut.

    I know that they've been distributing packets early by number but I wonder if they will continue to do that because each score down gets a wider pool - 99 has 1400 people or so, 101 had about 900, 1000 has about 1100. We'll see.

    Ouch, I sprained both my wrists at the same time today at the gym while lift the bench lift bar which only had 45lb both sides.

    I'm hoping less people are even interested or have residency at the lower numbers. I know several people who are fat and have no desire and people who outright live in Long Island or have other jobs.

    I remember Frank telling us that we could reschedule the second attempt once. If you feel you can't do the 8 minutes by your next go around, just reschedule.

    I'm hoping you guys on the wait list get on rather than having those who don't deserve a spot. Just seems to me that it isn't fair when you have people who aren't "fit" nor are they prepared to get in the academy just to test their limits or have them dropped. Hopefully they slash a good number of people

    You have a month from the day you took your medical to schedule your second stair master.

    I think going in already expecting to fail the stairs first time around is the wrong mindset. Positive mind means positive results.

    We all took the same test . If someone else scored higher than you . Taking the same test then I don't see what is not fair about it . U get my drift. Shame on them for not brig prepared. But we all took the same exam .
