    Any chance a kind soul here might post the list for us. Seem to me the City of Philadelphia didn't see fit to make the list easy to find!

    I understand from Philly Fire News that few of use mere mortals made the first 104 slots without veterans or other points.

    Well, I'm not at liberty to post it, but I can unfortunately say that the first score of 100 is ranked @ 224. Of those with a score of 100, they are ranked 224 thru 1136. Looks like those without extra points are going to have to wait a bit...

    The list is posted on philly fire news.

    The amount of people with a score of 100 or greater is staggering. I take it then the concept is that if there are 1000 pople with the same score, the City then has ranked people with identical scores "randomly." Hmmm.

    Wow. I didn't list too well. I dunno man, this whole ranking coming from the personality section seems fishy to me. Fack...


    Does anyone have the approx. number of candidates that actually sat for the exam by any chance? I forget what it was.

    Don't say that you weren't warned. Several people on here were telling everyone what to expect and to get together and talk to lawyers. As usual, most people only wanted to hear what they wanted to hear.

    Approx total testing was 6000 I think. And as a mere mortal I'm sitting pretty happy in the top 150!

    Hey good for you buddy, nice job. You're a medic or EMT I take it? Also, word of advice. Don't give your exact rank on these forums. You're just better off.

    Oh and thanks for the number on total test takers...

    Uh, yea then you are not a "mere mortal" for purposes of taking a firefighter test. You had additional points added to your score.

    This dosen't make sense..I scored in the 80's and list number was in the 1200s..if list #1136 had a 100 and I'm in the 1200's with a score in the 80s..Are extra points added already or is the score raw?

    There are so many rumors out there that it is hard to keep up with them all. The latest one is two classes this spring/summer, and two this fall/winter. No word on size.

    Then there is the rumor of "can they/will they hire because of the current contract negotiations?" Some say no they wont, as they dont want the new guys on the old contract, under which they would have to place you for medical and pension benefits, and some say that yes they can and will hire you and place you under a new contract with obviously newer medical and pension benefits. But I personally, as a former shop steward in another IAFF local, do not understand how that can happen without a negotiated contract in place.

    It would be nice to know how they came up with the score. I was sure I aced the written test but I must have scored just above serial killer on the second part to have to scroll that many pages to find my name. At least I made the list but I guess we will see how everything plays out.
