    i was told by HR that the new list would be out around three weeks from the appeals deadline, which would be around april 11. obviously things are subject to change or be delayed...

    I would imagine if you did not get extra points for certs, that your current rank number would increase(get worse) due to the amount of people who have appealed for extra points these last several weeks. I'm anxious to know or see if the people getting new points added to their score go to the bottom of their new score rank or if they rescramble or generate new numbers for evryone in that rank.
    Don't be a know it all! Be a know a lot!

    Wonder how this will effect the amount of firefighters they will be hiring. Guess the union didn't stop it?

    I just heard from my buddy whos on the fire department and he said that as of right now they are looking to hire 200 new firefighters from this list. and that it will be 2 classes going in at once just like the previous 2 classes. They are trying to get the classes in somewhere around august. there is no word if they are gonna take additional classes after these 2 though.

    Did the sources you guys had say anything about vets ? Previous rumors suggested a class of all vets, and apparently the last list either hired or disqualified them all. Any word ?

    I have not heard if there will be an all vet class. But just looking at the list right now there are 69 vets in the top 812. then from number 813 to 862 there are 45 vets. So in total there is only 114 on the list. But my guess is that those 69 are most likely gonna get hired and not so much with the other 45 as there was a big fuss over the last list not going in order.

    Was there really? Also, guys, you have to look at the weight requirements, and that some people will just stop being interested. I say if your in the top 250, your still in the game.

    yes out of the first 76 people on the list 69 are vets. then the next vet doesnt show up until 813. And i agree with you redrick but i would say if you are in the first 350 you have a shot as some people will be disqualified and there will be people not even interested in the job anymore. best the luck to everyone and keep faith.

    just out of curiosity, what are these weight requirements you are speaking of and where did you see them?

    Guy that went through the last rotation. When they send you an orientation letter, you get a weight/height ratio card or something similar saying where you need to be to pass the medical

    Hey guys, this is my first post, but I've read this forum a lot and I want to thank everyone for contributing for us lurkers out there. I see a lot of talk about how many vets are on the list. I just want to let you guys know that the city messed up and didn't give all vets their extra points. I'm one of them. Something to do with the online application or something. So the number is likely to increase, but I can't tell you by how much.
