    I went through the process during the last go around. I scored Category 1 .
    Results came out in May 2012 and stated they would expire May 2013.
    I was able to attempt the initial interview twice (August 2012 and September 2013).
    This leads me to believe that they can keep the list as long as the department deems neccessary.

    Man! bourbonstreet. You're on a streak dude. I saw you got your interview with Colorado too and you were pretty high with Burbank last go round, what's your secret?

    I think I did pretty well. The captian that came out and greeted me was a bit intimiding at first but I thought I took care of business once I got in there and started talking. I may have shot my self in the foot for one question but hopefully they understood what I was trying to say. How about you?

    Any idea when the results will be posted? The secretary mentioned a timeframe as I was leaving but I didn't write it down and have forgotten it.

    Yeah, i had an intimidating capt and a nice one. I can't remember when exactly when they said results would be mailed, i thought it was mid april. 300 interviews for 100 spots, odds don't get much better than that for this position.

    Holy smokes. If I don't get an offer I need to seriously reevaluate my interview strategy. Those are fantastic odds! Thanks for the info man, good luck to ya.

    Wow! I didn't know odds were that good! I walked out of this interview with the "I nailed it" attitude. I feel even better about it now! Best of luck to you guys.

    From what I have heard the number interviewed is higher, and each academy typically has 30 paid spots given after interviews, and 6 open enrollee spots chosen by a lottery. From the last academy I think maybe 2-3 recruits who injured out are being placed in the 76th this year, so overall everyone is competing for about 87 positions. Still great chances, but it's about a 1 in 5 shot. Also very interesting several more stations are in the process of being built around the city. The new Station 45 is currently underway with Station 2, 49, 50, and 51 all in various stages of securing funding, and Station 48 still in talks from what it sounds like. Good luck to everyone!
