    Talked to HR this morning. Still waiting on medicals, still people with indebtedness to the city. They stated that they cannot guarantee that I'm in the Sept 14th class but can guarantee and alternate spot. She said that people have been given notices to clear their debt (utilities, taxes, tickets) and that if they don't do it within the next couple of days they will be skipped. There are around 20 people that need to get their stuff together, and who knows how many failed the physical. This is gonna go right down to the wire.

    Thanks for the update, NP.

    So are you waiting on medicals?

    And I'm guessing no letters have gone out yet?

    I'm done everything.

    From what she made it sound like, there are alot of vacancies still open based on her information. The medicals that she is waiting on have to be the guys infront of me. It wouldn't make sense for her to have to wait on guys behind me If i'm slated as an alternate

    I'm a couple off of 200. I think I was 203 when I talked to her the week before last. She said they are campaigning for a class 188 after the 1st of the year (realistically feb/march).

    I had to tell my current employer "hey this could come tomorrow, the next day, or 6 months from now" Not trying to burn my bridge.

    So much for the 3 candidates to every one hired. Its more like 1.2 to every 1

    In reality everyone who came to the orientation/ hiring process is an alternate technically. I know it's nerve racking but wait on it you all maybe in and don't know it yet til you get the letter!! Don't stress if you don't get a letter then panic. Sorry I know better said then done!

    I honestly can't understand why all you guys who are finished haven't gotten notification for either class by now..regardless if they are filled, or half filled 50/30 whatever..I mean..5 days until the class on the 10th and 9 until the 14th..I mean that's 3 and 7 business days until it kicks off which makes no sense while all those who passed aren't slotted in a seat already..and why those of us who didn't aren't being told see you in a few months for orientation for a spring class...Vets or non-vets special funding or not, they need to fill the seats, so there is no reason why you guys aren't getting letters...someone on here at least.

    They didn't know where I stood to those still in debt to the city, plus lack of medical results. I guess its politically correct for them to say that we are alternates....I guess telling us that we are in a class and failing to get a letter could set them up for some bs. I'm done EVERYTHING, just waiting

    Good luck NorfPhilly and anyone else waiting, I'm hoping you guys get in one of the first two classes. The waiting is the worst part
