    at least one person near 1200 got one so who knows how they are picking. It might be out of a hat for all we know.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but from what is being posted above and on the previous pages, it seems we have established that orientation-letter recipients are those with an application status of "in hiring process".

    Hey, I'm in the 1200's and just got my letter...I have a few questions maybe someone can help me out..

    1. Does the letter mean that I'm high enough on the list to be considered for a position for the 2 classes/ I would assume so since i got a letter, just figured with my list number I would be out of the range.

    2. It included a body mass index..is this the "target" weight per height ratio that I need to pass in order to be considered if I get to the medical exam?

    3. Should I fill out the Pa Dept of Health background check form if I am already an Emt? I was going to anyway..but just curious.

    4. Any other helpful tips/insight from others who are or have been at this point in the process?

    Thanks.

    I see your an EMT, when did you send in your certification was if after the first list came out? If so there was a revised list for emt/firefihter1's and so on

    Ant..I never sent in my EMT cert because I didn't receive it until Dec 17th..I had to miss class to take the written..and I went for my FFI the day after the written..so I doubt that it has nothing to do with it.
    Maybe they are giving preference to disabled veterans? I don't know. To be quite honest, I kind of wrote it off for the first 2 classes..figured maybe I'd get lucky and make it into the last class before the test ran out.
