    Do the interviews have any barring on who gets a letter? I mean, do they have to take the first 160 people that are cleared in rank order?

    I am now between 380 and 400. I moved back about 30 spots it seems. Did everyone get moved back the same way? This was due to some candidates getting certification papers in late.

    That's my info also. I know they are past #400. I have to figure some people have given up and moved on with the delays. They had no shows in the last classes ad they started a year before us.

    This new rank that people are talking about, is this from the original list to the 2nd one or something completely different and more recent?

    the rank I got when I called was my 3rd different ranking. I got the original rank April 2012, then a revised rank once they got my certs sorted out in June 2012, and now this one (which moved me 2 spots down from the last emalied ranking I got).

    From what I know, take it with a grain, they added military and EMT points for some candidates that got their credentials in later. That's just what I've heard. I could be wrong. I moved down about 30 spots as most of us did. This was after the initial adjustment we all had about 10 spots down.

    I know that they interviewed up to number 460.

    I don't know how they could add points after the deadline. Then what is the point to having a deadline? I might end up just missing it then. My second rank was about 420 which means I should be moved back to 450 now.

    I would call and ask Craig. You may not be as far back as you think. I think they'll have to go down the list as people won't show up. Some of the people who moved up might have already been ahead of you?

    A letter would be wonderful. I am working out, but having a solid start date would give me something concrete to focus on. Fingers crossed for the 46th time.

    with all these push backs they should just give us the letters now... No need to make us wait any longer to know if we're in or out...

    That's my thought. I know there were about 3 no-shows last class for my buddy, I'm guessing at least as many this time. How many people just assumed they were passed over and moved on?

    Will the classes be 80 people each for sure?

    Hi BigGuyPhilly,

    What is the most common reason for dropping out? I imagine the physical portion. I don't quit, not an issue with me.
