    I think the classes are supposed to be like feb-march.. So maybe mid December would make sense.

    January, February, March, these are all big rumors. Does anyone have anything reliable with regards to a possible academy start date? I am debating whether or not to pay for another semester of college right now, it starts in mid-January and I don't want to waste a ton of money if I have to withdraw from classes if I am lucky enough to get a spot in the next academy. It would be a couple thousand dollars down the drain which I would do in a heartbeat for the job, but would like to avoid losing that much money if possible.

    Rumors yes, however all indication points to February being reliable. I suggest you contact Personnel, however the answer you get from them will be as non-committed as this reply. If you would like some more reliable information, contact your City Councilman or the Coucilman-at-large and see if they can obtain an answer for you.

    My advice? You obviously cannot get the money back halfway through semester. You can always go back to college at a later date. I wish there were a better answer for you but this is the City of Philadelphia you are dealing with. Seek more substantial information and then make the decision to defer college or not, which is what I would do.

    So a feb. class would mean orientation in the next month or so? Right?

    I would think so. The last orientation letters went out in may, roughly 4 months before the September classes. I would think letters would go out very soon IF they are looking at February classes.

    It will be at least 6 months from when the last class started and thats if they were to start right when the last ones ended

    Talked to Personnel again today regarding some things that I needed to update. Was told to check back around turkey day as things may start moving. The medic class that is in now will end sometime around January. Stay in the gym, keep your noses clean, and see you in 2013.

    Just curious, does anyone know if the department has switched over to the 4 12hr shift schedule yet? I know it was considered, but I'm unsure if it passed.
