    To Nutts09

    For your information - I did schedule to review my exam, I am appealing, and I am more than willing to join a suit. Fortunately, the PFD is not the be all, end all for me, so despite doing very well, I will challenge.

    I am more than confident in my abilities and work ethic and believe I'll rank high in any legitimate test. So I would love them to throw this list out. The ppl who are keeping their mouths shut are the ones who scored 100's and KNOW they could never get that lucky again (I am not one of those ppl).

    Check your emails, if that isn't criteria for class action I'm not sure what is...

    You can't just tell someone what their new "rank" is without actually showing us the list..

    I dropped 13 spots until list 4 comes out. Error in tie breakers? Nobody could have appealed the tie breakers right? So they found this by dumb luck?

    Apparently, the city has violated their own rules and have permitted certs to be handed in after their own, self-imposed deadline. Follow the advice of others on here and start connecting and confer with an attorney. Who knows what else they would dig up during discovery?

    this might give us some indication of any funny business
    Absolutely, positively do not share this information on a public forum. You never know who from philly may be watching and could drop all of your info into the trash, especially if you mention the words "attorney" or "lawsuit."

    Ahh thats a very good point. How bout what your score was? And how many spots you dropped? That would save anonymity.

    When will the new "list" be distributed? Or are we supposed to accept our new rank on good faith?

    Should I take my college diploma too? What about my complete sentences and streamlined thoughts? I can take all of them if you want.

    That's cool that you consider yourself educated and placed high enough on the list to probably get hired. Good for you. However, this type of thinking will at some point get you thrown out the second floor of the firehouse, feet first.

    I am sure existing fire fighters are reading these threads with great interest and shuddering at the comments from what will be the new crop of recruits coming their way.

    I dropped over 30 spots with the new email. I can't believe the city does not have a physical fitness test for the fire department. By the time the recruit is in the academy and they realize he is not fit enough for the job, its to late. The city has already invested to much time and money in that recruit. Why doesn't the city have a timed physical fitness test to break the tie and kill two birds with one stone?

    There is a daily PT schedule.....the members of the "preferred demographic" that fall behind are coached and their times are bamboozled until they pass.
