    I know i passed my physical, but the urine test is taking a long time. I'm not worried about it as i don't even take flinstone vitamins, but i want to be cleared and put into the next class. Any idea how far down the list they are now? I met someone who was about #450!
    the recruits probably not sure about it bc of the wait... Urine test shouldn't take that long it's probably back already seem like the pfd is taking forever. I've been jogging daily can't wait until it start. I just want to know if i'm the class or not dont care about a start date anymore...

    I want this bad and have worked hard to get ready physically.

    I wonder how many candidates have given up or moved onto other jobs?

    Has anyone not passed the physical?

    Did they say why you weren't picked, was it a ranking thing?

    Do they take in rank order from this point forward?

    I'm dying to get a date. I want this too much.

    My rank is under 350, so I'm hoping that wont be an issue. I really hope you get in also Mike.

    We have all waited so long for this. I think the length of time must have cut a lot of guys itself. How many people got out of shape just by thinking it wasn't going to happen? Some candidates I met recently were also I the running for the police. They were likely going that way as the job was starting now for them.

    when i went to orientation we had about 4 tables that was empty this time around all bc people are tired of the bs with pfd... U should be on the 2nd class... Knowing what i know now i would of went into the service for the extra 10 points at least i know i would be doing my dream job already...

    I'm actually just under 270, but I imagine a percentage of people are not candidates still. I'm happy with either class, just want to start bad!

    I had to retake a blood test because they messed up a one part of the test. The doctor told me I was cleared by him. I know my drug test wasn't back yet, but I don't drugs.

    I hear you. I'm physically and mentally prepared. We have waited so long. I wonder how many no-shows they'll be as people have moved on to the police or other fire departments?

    I heard from a reliable source that the end of July or early August is still the timeframe for class.

    What is your generally rank everyone? I'm just under 375
