The packet asks for details on everything and I have no idea how to come up with all of the info. Anybody have any experience with packets like this?
    Yeah it is a lot to remember. I think we have some time to return the information. I know it is not due when we go to orientation. I guess the best way is to look for old bills or maybe online for your old residences. I know some of those sites that you use to find family members show old known addresses. I know I did a search for an aunt that I haven't seen in years.

    Wow I thought it had to be done by orientation. Yeah, after looking at it again, it doesn't say that you need to bring the questionnaire completed. It will still take some serious digging.

    It says on the CPAT Information Sheet..."If you passed the CPAT during the period of Novemeber, 1 2012 to the present, you may produce your CPAT card at CFD to proceed to the next phase of the hiring process."

    I wonder how many envelopes were sent out. The fact they sent them to old addresses could change the amount of people who actually show up May 7th, 8th or 9th.

    Pretty sure they don't dig too deep into past employment or where you lived..i put my last house and last job, that's it..they never checked any of them...so is anybody else getting the Dr page filled out if u passed the CPAT recently?

    I wonder if the sooner you can show completion with a passing score on the CPAT, the sooner they will process you further?

    Or would they wait until the Aug 1 cutoff and process everyone further at the same time?

    Based off this..."If you passed the CPAT during the period of Novemeber, 1 2012 to the present, you may produce your CPAT card at CFD to proceed to the next phase of the hiring process."

    It sounds like the sooner you get it done the sooner you move along to the "next phase" of the hiring process.

    If we do the CPAT on our own and fail can we continue to take it until we pass? Obviously that becomes expensive but i was just curious. lol

    From what i've read here it looks like they're up to around list number 2100 on the recent packets, and have gone up to the Jan 2010 PAT candidates.

    Has anyone from the April 2010 PAT group received anything?

    No. Moved a couple times since then

    Did your original interest card/PAT notice from a few years back go the same address this current packet went to?

    Mine did and I have since moved twice. I also went to the office on Clinton and filled out the change of address form twice. What a waste of time. I'm just glad my buddy still lives there. I was checking my previous address but I definitely wasn't looking for it to be delivered to the address that I had put down during the written exam. I would have just assumed I never got a letter sent to me.

    Heard from my two sources, this processing is for an October academy and January 2014 academy.

    I believe it may have been mentioned prior but throwing it out there anyways.

    I haven't Harry, and I'm 2350's. I just hope we get swooped in before they retest. I'm thinking that they may send out more letters if needed depending on the response/fail rate of the cpat. I don't think we'll be getting anything in the mail for awhile. Thoughts?

    Heard this round of processing is for oct/jan academy from the 06 list, and these classes would finish off the list.

    BUT you never know....heard they wanted 2-3 more off the 06 list - if thats true, that would leave one more academy left after the oct/jan classes.

    Plus if they dont get the numbers they need, they would pull from the April 2010 PATer's i would think.

    They puled more names than just those who have done the PAT. I'm just over 2400 and missed the Jan 2010 PAT by a couple of numbers. I just received my packet, which is the first thing since getting my list number.

    So looks like we have guys that were waiting on FP (2009 group), jan and apr 2010 PAT'ers, and sounds like a few who havent even taken the original PAT that are all grouped together and pretty much starting over.....

    Then you have the FAILED group now taking CPAT
