    It's basically just like a full physical with your doctor, a treadmill stress test and hearing, vision etc.

    Me either, but fortunately I received a conditional offer of employment from one of my other top departments last week. So I wasn't going to be able to continue on with this process anyway. Good luck to those who made the top 120

    Are people ever contacted if they fall just outside of the 120 range? Any people with experience that can chime in? Thanks!

    So how many from the list should we expect to get hired? Is the city planning on doing two classes of 40? I'm ranked around 60th on the current list so I'm guessing I won't be part of the class of that starts the academy in January if they only take the top 40. Does anyone know when the second class of the year typically starts?

    Also, congrats to every moving on and best of luck those who weren't so fortunate.

    I think they take the top 120 to give them a cushion because some individuals will fail the remaining tests. They usually do 2, 40 classes per year.

    If you don't mind me ask, what department did you get on with?

    I feel sorry for the guy that scored a 100 on the test and a 34 on the interview. That's gotta hurt.

    I was told yesterday by someone in the department that there will definitely be more than one class going to the academy from this hiring process....awesome news. The first class will now be starting in November...anyone know if there is any overlap in classes or will the second begin after the first is completed?

    From what I was told, they budgeted for two classes. 80-100 total cadets. The first class would start in November 2012 and the second class would start in January 2013. Good news indeed. No guarantees of course, but let's hope they stick with the plan!

    If you failed any of the remaining steps you'll be notified. No news is good news. That's all I know.
