    The worst part, besides the wait itself, is the daily questions from family or friends about it. They all get a "you'd be one of the first to know if I heard anything" in response, but it doesn't stop them from asking way too often. I'm really, really hoping for Friday results because I have a big family thing on Saturday and I'd like to not have to explain what's going on to everyone one at a time.

    Those military points are a crazy good advantage...if I would've had 3 points put on my score i could have moved up 37 pages of numbers...crazy

    Hit refresh. It came up on my phone 1st, then when I went to my computer it did show up till I hit the refresh button. Are the military points counted towards you written score ore you overall score?

    You get 3 military points total, not 3 added to each section.

    Candidates who complete both the written questions and the oral interview will receive a composite score based on the written questions (20 out of 100 points), oral interview (80 out of 100 points), and any applicable military points (3 points).

    16.923 for me. Was expecting to do better, but I guess I can't complain since everyone is moving forward.

    Everyone moving forward to interviews is going to make interviews REALLY hard. The interviewers are going to be more stressed and hurried and we have to make an even better impression on them to stand out from the 4,999 other people they're interviewing. Start drafting your answers now so you can practice making your best impression.

    Yeah i guess this goes to show what type of influence the DOJ had on the hiring process. This decreases the chances of people complaining about discrimination.

    Hey that's me!!

    hahaha...I got a 17.8 which is good but not as good as i was hoping. I've been doing a lot of SOI this year so I'm hoping that really shows. Regardless, time to buy that ticket, book the hotel and get the suit tailored!!!

    Congrats to everyone (literally) and everyone who got a good score

    I know I missed a few so I will take it. I'm in the top 25% of the 4 thousand interviewing....

    Why did we take the test?

    Get tx ff certified as if possible paramedic and you cut out about 4250 of those people if you apply at other departments
