    A few questions for the guys that just recently got their letters. Are you located in the Chicago/Illinois area? I checked my mail today and havent received anything but I figure its because im in California, so it may be a few more days. Also did anyone receive a letter via email?

    Got my letter with my number on it. Let's just say it's about halfway between 0 and 17,063. I got veteran's preference but it doesn't elaborate on how that's going to work.

    Im a Chicago resident................got my letter today......... I believe i've got a good random number,,,,, it is between 1 and 2000..........i've also got Veteran's prefence ,,,,,
    but i've heard that this random number is just for the next steps in the process...........
    i've also heard that once you have passed the next steps ,,, and have gotten on the eligibility list........
    there will be 2 seperate lotterys..... 1 for Veterans.... and 1 for the rest.........hope this can help a few people...........
    but then again.........that is just what i've "HEARD".

    O.K. More for the rumor mill. A friend works for cfd in the office. he says that the random numbers were assigned to all that passed, but the city still does not know how they will use them. for example, they meay start at random #1 and work back, or start at random #1001... you get the point. Also, they may just select random #'s at "random". rest assured in chicago, your best bet is still to have clout. Anyhow, good luck to all, but remember, keep testing. there is noway all 17,000 passing candidates will get called in this lifetime.

    I think I've heard about 5 different rumors in the last 10 hours about what is next, I swear some people just make this stuff up, so with that in mind, I'm not going to believe anything I hear unless it is from an official source.

    also received my letter today and also that thing about the 17,000 getting a call is not true im sure the physical agility, background investigation, and drug test will weed out some more people.

    Well I got mine this evening in the mail. I applied for Veterans Preference but do not remember there being anything written down on the paper about it. I would imagine they would do some lottery system that would further assure there is no bias. I am not holding my breath, but I am interested in seeing how long it takes for Chicago to get to the next step.

    I believe they started with SS#'s ending in 9. Everyone I know who has one that ends in 9 is in the first 1800 or so. Which makes sense. now as far as what that means is anybodies guess.

    Outlet, that is the way to think brother! Nothing is for sure until you see that peice of mail show up at your house saying "report to the fire academy on XX/XX/XXXX."

    I didn't even take the test and I'm #10 on the list and my last digit of my SS# is 14! How did I get a double digit LAST NUMBER you ask? It's Chicago, they are going to hire who they want anyway!

    In all seriousness guys, good luck and I hope that you all make out for the better on the test.

    FDNY's filing period is still open for anyone that doesn't want to wait around: http://www.nyc.gov/html/fdny/html/co...s_080106.shtml

    I called the HR dept today and asked about these random numbers and how this is going to work, they told me that your random number is where you are on the list and that they will be starting at number 1 and going down the list, so if your # is 1-1200 you will probally be called in the next 3 years.
