    Remember guys, once you get your notices that you made it, you wipe your fh.com identity from here and never appear on here again until AFTER your probation has ended. And even then never, ever identify yourself, your department, company, any co-workers, etc. And never post pictures of your company, location etc. when you are on board with the PFD.

    And this includes FB, too. Get off until AFTER your probation.

    GOOD LUCK.

    Medicals are done from what I heard. Ok ow mine is done as I had to visit the health office and the doctor confirmed this.

    The 12th seems like a real time. I just hope the letters for both classes go out the same day!!

    I hope next week we get the letters. I live near Harrisburg and cannot commute everyday. When I get the letter (crossing fingers), I will have to quit my current job, and find an apartment in less than a week. Very stressful.

    It's not pushed back. Letters should come next week. We have been hearing that the final list should be done by Monday.

    Don't get psyched out, sometimes the city doesn't know anything until it is happening right then. There is a good chance they don't have everything they need today, but will in time to send letters monday.

    Just curious, I am taking the civil service test in November. Obviously a number of you guys have already been through the process. I am wondering what rank you guys got on the Civil service exam (If you don't mind sharing) what your test score was, and if you lives out of state.

    I have reciprocity in PA with my EMT, so I can get a maximum of 103 on the test. However, I live right across the bridge in NJ (I can see the Philly skyline from my house). I'm curious as to if I even stand a chance at getting hired because I live out of state.

    Trust me when I tell you that it doesn't really matter where you're from to get hired. However, with the new test and huge number of applicants, I wouldn't plan on getting less than your max of 103 if you want a chance on getting hired. It pretty much seems that the extra points are needed along with a 100 on the test to stand a chance.

    If it breaks down the same way as 2011, you should be good with a 103. But it's not as simple as getting everything "right" on the test. It was pretty much a giant personality test with a pass/fail section that you can study for, so in my opinion it's a bit of a crapshoot. There was some weird stuff with the first class too, where it seemed like they called all vets with no particular regard for who scored higher than them on the test, and then went back to the list for the second class.

    I got 100, and have not even come close to a letter at this point. I'm praying they put one more class in off this list, but who knows. If a class goes in in August, they could process a new group in the late fall/early winter and put them in about the same time scores start coming back from the 2013 test. If they do they'll probably get somewhere between 800-1000 on the list, if not I think they're around 500 now.

    Don't worry Mike, letters won't come until next week.

    I've heard they interviewed up to about 450 off the list so far. Anyone have an educated guess as to how far down the list they'll end up with these two classes.
