    If the class doesn't start on the 1st or close to that date ill be really disappointed. I started to plan my pto hrs at work with my manager to end the last week of march. I got faith on april 1st.

    Just to clarify, this was a rumor. At this time it's completely false. The paramedic list hasn't opened up, and you can check cityofchicago.org to see for yourself. Sorry

    Well then I stand corrected, but a paramedic friend of mine said he went online and actually did put his name on the list. I'll ask him again.

    He may have just signed up for a notification list. But, if he knows something that I don't, then please share the website address if you can. thanks

    Unfortunately, it looks like something has changed. Last week got word that Chief's were notified of April 1st start date from the horses mouth...some of the rest of you also heard. Yesterday heard from a good source, but passed down thru a couple of diff. people, that the class is postponed till Rham gets in and gives the go ahead. Just called down to medical and was told basically the same thing...."NO date has been given", and "let's put it this way, it's going to be a while". If there was a class soon, I would think he would have just said he couldn't tell me anything.

    I'm in chicago and nothing today either. This two plus years of "processing" is brutal. I think what really gets me is they get us moving along just enough to get some hope and then back to waiting and the unknown.

    I thought patience was the mantra for us? Yes the carrot sucks, but Don't plan on a career change until you get the letter. Patience

    Out of all the rumors I've heard in the last two years, this one I believe most. I knew something like this would happen.

    Wow everybodies kinda losing it on here. For us that were just processed were good were gonna get in, if not April 1st it will happen! Remember the nation just bottomed out financially that is why they didn't put more classes through, we're still comming out of it. It will just give me more time to get in better shape. Stay positive!
