    The 2 year mark is from when the list is published. Your original list was published 3/7/12 and the supplemental (amended) list was published 3/22/12.

A word to the wise: sign up for it...if these classes fall through, you don't make it, or you get kicked out for some reason, you'll at least have a chance the next time around.

    If they do hire in late July early August that will have been 6 months after graduating the last classes. So if noone is hearing anything about more new hires by the end of September I'd guess this list is finished.

    Would you say the majority of those selected for hire and that pass the physical will get into a class? How may people are alternates?

    Fixxer - first off thanks for all the info. Believe me, its appreciated.

    I notice you said "if these classes fall through".... what do you think the chances of that happening are? I'm sure that I am just one of many people who are literally rearranging their lives for this.

    How likely do you think it is that the classes will actually start on the August dates you mentioned before?

    Again, thank you for taking the time to help us out.

    Very unlikely that the classes would fall through, but stranger things have happened.

    Early to mid-August is still the current (realistic) target timeframe.

    I have pretty solid verification that classes start early August. I just hope I get a letter. Any idea how far down the list they interviewed?
    Have some people failed the physical. I didn't seem to notice anything during my day There.

    The instructors are all ready picked for the classes. They are putting two classes through again and they are slated for mid July

    Over 90 FF retired this month that's a lot of vacancies they need to fill.

    The classes will definitely not be in mid-July. Early August at best.

    I was told early August recently by a good source.

    Does anyone actually fail the physical?

    Yes, the number varies randomly with the pool of applicants. Usually most people fail because they are overweight, which is a good thing. Can't say I'm a great physical specimen, but if you really wanted to get on the department, you should have at least trimmed yourself down to moderately overweight. At this point it's over a year since you knew what your rank was and if you had a shot at it. No excuses...
