    Didn't get a letter or notice to go to post office. Took PAT in 2010
    I also haven't been able to reach any of my people for latest rumors...
    Anyone have any idea how much of this reprocessing thay are doing?
    I'm assuming all of it...PAT (CPAT), BI, Medical...

    Does the letter say when the cpat has to be completed by? Reason being, I thought it was only offered a few times a month. I'm an april 2010'er so not even sure if I'm getting a letter.

    CPAT MUST be completed/proof of passing by August 1,2013

    Heard they will start processing us for med/BI while we are getting CPAT's

    Was told by my source of an October 2013 academy for this round.

    Your letters will arrive today I'm sure. If i recall when first round of letters went out many moons ago, some got theirs one day and the rest the next. Easier said than done but breathe easy.....

    It has to be on it's way - they are sent certified with signature required. if your not home, postman will leave an orange signature card that can easily get sandwiched between other mail/inside flyers....double check bro

    from what i heard is that people that passed the original PAT are getting letters directly from CFD. My wife has a female friend that FAILED the PAT and got a letter from an attorney's office.

    So it turns out that my letter was delivered yesterday to my buddies house where I used to live 4 years ago. I personally went to change my address twice for two different addresses and I guess they never updated my info. He's on the department already and of course of all the flippin days he's off he was working yesterday so this morning he was going through the mail and found the Orange certified card. He just called me to let me know it came. Looks like I'll be heading to the post office tonight...

    Hope the rest of you guys get them in the mail today. Also make sure your info is correct if you know a number to call and check on that. Good luck!

    I got mine at my parents house and I know for a fact that I updated my residence in person at the personnel dept. Make sure you guys check old addresses if you can

    Yup, mine went to a house I lived in 4 years ago and have since moved twice and updated my address twice. Must be another way the city is screwing this up and eliminating people.

    Seems like these letters are going to the same addresses that they sent the very first letters to.

    Just be aware guys, since this current process did not include those people that failed prior to 2006, they have now set themselves up for another lawsuit. They seem to be really good at that. And the right attorney can and will stop the entire process. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but if there are any guys reading this that failed prior to 2009, keep your ears open.

    Maybe they're trying to avoid that by sending out the letters to as many people they can who failed. Might be a first come first serve to reply type of deal to get another opportunity.

    I'm confused, so everyone that recently took PATs are getting these letters? Do the people that failed have the backround packet also?

    Are you even on the CFD list? Everything you contribute here is negative.
