    I scored an 84 but the capt at the agility told me after the physical everyone is on the same page. he worded it that they weigh very heavy on your interview. so even with scores not in the 90's if we had clean back grounds and interview good probably still have a good shot. I may be completely wrong. maybe someone from Ptown and give some more input, but that's what I got out of our conversation

    I felt like I did pretty good. It was pretty straightforward. Friendy and professiona.

    We will see. Seems like they are picking up a big class.

    I must say though I think I was pretty relaxed because I recieved an offer last week from another local department. I accepted but am remaining in Ptown process as that is my first choice.

    Good luck man!

    How did everyone's poly go. Mine went well first I've ever done. Definitely nerve racking. He didn't say pass or fail but he said good job and I think we can work with this. He questions me on two questions but i think he was just trying to get me to slip up and say something else.

    Mine was Sat.

    He wished me luck with the job so I assume that was good.

    Said they ran the poly on 23 people. Chief said they were looking to hire 30 people, so odds are pretty good. Doubt we hear anything until end of OCT

    For what it is worth, P-town just graduated a class last week, I think it was.

    I'm in this process as well and had a polygraph. From the sources I've spoke with our information should be in the hands of civil service by now. Also they polygraphed about 25 to 30 of us and are looking to put 25 to 30 in the academy in late oct early nov. Sounds like good odds to me on getting the job. . Also was told that they plan on polygraphing the other applicants as well but first wanted to put their top 30 into an academy ASAP. Supposedly a second academy will be starting around January. All of this info is hearsay but is from very good sources that have been on the money so far. As for the others left in this process, what kind if backgrounds do you have?

    Medicoffire thanks for the info! And if what your source says is true we should be hearing something from civic service in the next week or two right? To give us time to prepare for the academy. My fingers are crossed that this is my shot. Good luck to everyone in the process and hopefully well be seeing you all soon!!
