    Let me rephrase: The whole process of fingerprinting, drug test, physical and taking paperwork back to the office took that long. The DT/Physical was 2.5 hours. If you go to CareNow, give them your cell #, and they'll call you when it's almost your turn. They didn't share that little nugget of info until I was 1hr 45mins into my wait. On the upside, I got to see August Rush and A Cinderella Story during the wait....

    That's what my interview panel told me too. They explained it that every step was just a qualifier for the interview, and the interview was the end-all be-all.

    hey guys to answer the question of where you ranked you can call the DFD number and talk to Ms. Eldridge she has all the info. I just got the call on Monday so two days ago. I don't see how the rank matter though, just that we all got in!!!!!! I'm so stoked. I'm moving the first week in OCT from Huntington Beach Ca. Can't wait to meet everyone and start our careers! I am so pumped!

    Wow. That's crazy. Guess since I haven't heard yet. I didn't interview as well as I had hoped.

    Hulk, I wouldn't count yourself out yet. Stay optimistic . Call Ms. Eldridge, you may be lined up for the March class. If not, you still never know how far they may make it down the list come March

    There were quite a few certified guys that were getting their fingerprints, drug tests, and physical with me. They were asking me if I had my certs, because they were curious if the first class was fast track.

    Maybe two classes at once, a fast track and a full academy class

    Go back and read the previous class postings

    Congratulations for those who have been given an offer! Dallas is one of the best and I'm proud to work here. For people moving out of state check out The Reserve at White Rock, good prices and about ten mins from the academy. Let me know if you need details, I live here and about ten other guys who got hired last year. Here are a few tips for the academy... Clean shaven, be early, take pride in your uniform, work hard- there is always somebody watching, if you're not in shape now don't expect this academy to get you there, you should have been preparing and last work hard and enjoy a great fulfilling career! Good luck! If anybody has questions on anything let me know.

    Hey Delson, I'm driving out about that time either the second or third, I will be getting a Uhaul w/ trailer for my car, If you want to "smokey and the bandit it" I am down well East bound and down haha. as for a roomate I found another recruit from reno, I can ask if he is down for one more I am pretty new to this site and dont want to give out personal info either contact DFD for recruit Snow's info or or I will try to message you someway on here. @Fire49 "culture shock" haha love it buddy. I'm ready to dive right in!!!! though I have an advantage I spent my summers in the south as kid and gotta little cowboy in my blood already! I can't wait and Am PUMPED! @the guy who with the reply back at me awaiting his rank to see if he made it, I didn't look at from your point of view, sorry if i offended didn't mean too. For those of you who haven't got the call yet stay positive and keep working keep building and making your self a well rounded canidate. for what its worth I have been testing a very long time, testing is a roller coaster of up's and downs. Stay the course and stay motivated and positve. look at everything for as a chance to improve and make yourself better. Every step is a step forward and up. Do vol. work in the community and live life as if your capt is always watching you. believe me it will help. I was told by this old salty retired fireman "Any job big or small do it right or not as all." I made this my credo. words are words I know but live life through actions. I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here but if it helps someone I would love to pass it on. sorry for the book people.

    @slickphilj I don't think so. This is the first I've heard of that. Everyone else has been told to call today, that hasn't gotten a call.

    Today is the day...Good luck to everyone who is calling in to get their rank. Keep us updated.

    I just called the recruiting office and got my ranking. I didn't make the cut. With that being sad, this entire recruitment process w/ Dallas was a great learning experience. Yes I'm bummed out, but I'm not going to sulk in it. God speed everyone.
