    Didn't make the cut, dang. Ranked 115 with just emt cert and senior in college. This is my second year trying and it won't be my last. Good luck to the guys who made it! Congrats

    Full uniform was a dead give away. My best guesses would be the ambulance and changes to the retirement for some of the newer hires.

    Some in full uniform, some with shirts. I spoke briefly to a guy with a Dallas fire rescue shirt on who said he and a bunch of guys he worked with in Dallas were there testing for Fort Worth. Before I could ask him why, we got interrupted.

    Looks like Dallas will be testing again in 2014. Any idea on how many recruits Dallas is looking to pick up? Reading the above messages, looks like a lot Dallas guys/gals are jumping ship. Thanks in advance.

    Anyone looking for a room? I am renting one of three bedrooms at the Reserve at White Rock for $375 + utilities (about $100 month) from the beginning of January until the end of March (3 months). It is 5 minutes from the academy and room comes with a personal bathroom, balcony door, and pool view. Below is a link to the apartment website. At the end of the three months, the two other tenants will be moving out and you can renew with two of your own roommates if you so wish. Both the guys living here now are super low key. PM me if you're interested. Thanks!

    I still haven't heard anything. I talked to a guy that is in the first class and he said he thought they would be graduating in May. So assuming they don't overlap the first and second class then it could be at least May before the second class starts. I thought they originally said we were starting in April though??
