    I agree. We've been through a lot. I'm easy to spot as I'm probably the only Canadian in the group. Can't wait.

    Congrats to all of you guys. To say that I am not envious or jealous would be wrong. I tried for 11 years and 4 lists to get hired, but that was before the revocation of the Home Charter Rule (the "preferred demographic" clause.) Life changes dictated that I had to move out of the city, and to apply now and get hired (at the age of 40) would mean a loss of $20K+ a year for several years. Started this thread to see all of you guys obtain and share info, tips and ideas- and of course to connect with one another. Which you are doing. Finish up connecting with one another, get each other's numbers and addresses, and get the hell off of this forum before you start proby school. Because there is one mean mutha effer at drill school- he's wearing Lieutenant's bars and eats constantine wire for breakfast and ****es napalm......His head looks like a cue ball. If he finds out you are on here during proby school, he will find you, and he will punish you- severely. So make the connections now, and dump your profile.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

    Mine had gotten lost in the mail when I went through. It got returned to the FAB, and when I called down they had it on hand and emailed it to me. If it's coming up on crunch time don't be afraid to call down and ask.

    I have a neighbor who asked me if two old DUI's would be an automatic no for hire? I assumed so, but wanted confirmation. I'd appreciate any thoughts from people in the know.

    I know one doesn't disqualify you. I don't know about two I would assume it would depend on how long ago they were. It never hurts to try though, the worst they can say in no

    Hey guys
    I have been reading this thread for two years and wanted to thank all of you for the information that you have provided. I feel like I know some if you personally even though we have never spoken with one another. I was wondering if some of you wanted to meet up before the class starts. I am in 189 so we do not have to report until the 17th. The Mayweather Alvarez fight is on the 14th. 188 is more than welcome to come as well, but that is a school night for you guys. Let me know if any of you are I interested.

    I'm in the 189, I'd be up for it. I know another guy in and I'm sure he'd meet up for a drink.

    Hmmm.... What happened?

    Seriously, if you have any questions, PM me. I'll try my best to get you an answer.

    I do have a vested interest in this. I could be your boss next year.

    Call around to uniform gear, McDonald's uniforms, or American uniforms. Also, make sure you get actual work pants instead of getting dickies for the first few weeks. This way your money isn't wasted
