    Well that sucks. I sign up for medical tomorrow.

    Hi guys last name V, vet and turned in CPAT last orientation, started process this year. Still waiting for call. Any one from some of the last orientation classes who did CPAT on their own who is still waiting for BI. I also live in burbs if that makes a diff. Congrats to all the guys who made it so far! Can you guys share any info from 2moro, especially on the order people are picked for BI and medical. Would really appreciate. Kinda starting to feel discouraged at this point. Have a buddy who started this process with me and city paid for his CPAT, cleared BI and finished medical already. Thanx guys for any info.

    Pretty sure the group that goes in tomorrow has a very good chance..got more than a month to take care of whatever needs doing. There were guys, close friends, and a neighbor of mine who did his Medical two weeks before the start and made it into the class.
    Nobody knows procedure definitively, on the job or not..it's all rumors..I'd say they're somewhat close to 150 but it's definitely not over yet!

    "And btw, it's a definite start date of the 18th" this is what was told to me by an instructor for this class coming up. I told him, "I heard that 3 years ago.."

    ^Nov 1st doesn't seem to make sense because its a Friday. I thought they go by the start of a pay period. In that case Monday, Nov 18th would make sense. Either way it's happening I guess

    Pay period is the 1st and 16th of the month regardless of the day of the week. The city typically gives 2 weeks to one month notice (job offer) prior to the class starting.

    Pretty much what Keefus said. Though I will say, Ms. Hammond was pretty certain and ver difinitive when she told us "pass this step and you will be in the November class". I would say there were about 45 people there today. Good all around.

    Also had the pleasure of meeting Keefus and Shadez today. Hope to see you guys at FP.

    i wonder what this means for all of us on the crisp of our medical exam. to me, pushing back the start date means they must be trying to fill some spots yet.

    i guess if we get called down sooner rather than later may be telling.

    thanks for the update.

Now over 5 years later I see everyone talking what I was talking about back then and on pages 200some of this forum. So DO NOT get ur hopes too high. Not be a Debbie downer. Just a realist who has been in ur shoes. Wish all of u the best. Or at least 134 of u so there's still a slot open for my for nov. If I don't hear from Hammond by next week I know I'm being given the shaft AGAIN.
    I agree with you 2ndGen. Not letting myself get excited. I was just passing along what she told us today. Seems like things are moving forward but again until I am in the drill hall day one, I will not be overly excited.
