    Yea, I was pretty surprised by the guy that came in at the end of the class and screamed...CONGRATULATIONS!!!! to all of us, and then Miss Hammond giving us the in between the lines approval that we would be in the next class if medical went good. The gentleman instructor that was assisting throughout the day also chatted with us while we were in the **** test line and told us if we couldn't read between the lines of "you got a good chance if medical goes good" he didn't know what else to tell us. I also knew some people working in medical and even they said congrats to me. It was a bit bizarre but my mind has been trained not to assume. I will be excited on November 18th if it happens.

    That's why I asked you if you heard that from anyone here before. Mrs. Hammond said, "The people in this room, if you pass medical, you are in Nov.18 class if its not delayed." And at the end she was saying see you at FP.

    One of the guys in the room even asked if he could pull out his phone to record her saying it. LMAO It was hilarious how the room got quiet when she said it. No one believed her or we're were all stunned she actually said it. Hahaha

    I sort of believe her, because she expected some sort of everyone jumping up and down reaction. But her faced showed disappointment that she got nothing.

    Hey fellas, I didn't get to stay with you guys until the end because she was able to fit me in for my medical that afternoon, so I think four of us left early. Kinda surprised me with the medical too. Curious if you guys had anything.

    Anyway, teddy I think you were the bald guy sitting behind me, nice to at least be around everyone.

Didn't expect to take it so my travel diet my throw off my levels.
    My question is did anyone ask how many groups have gone to medical? We were all speculating 3-4 I think but no definite number. Also can anyone fill me in on how to clear up any medical issues. Basically I'm worried about my cholesterol. If it throws a red flag do you have your doc write something up then take it to them? Or do they send you the necessary paperwork for your doc to fill out? If they send the proper paperwork I'm worried it'll take too long and I'll get pushed back, vs just having a doc write something up you know?
    Also after the medical did you guys just check with the front desk an leave? They didn't give me any paperwork or anything, just said I was good and took off. Curious if you guys had anything.

    LOL Yes I was the bald guy. You must have been the guy who kept putting eyedrops in. Ms. Hammond said if any red flags come up on medical, you will be able to get a letter from your doctor stating he checked you out and has a plan for you. She told us , and take from it what you will, that they will throw just throw you out because of some medical issues. Now for serious issues it may not be as easy but if your cholesterol is a little high, you wont be shown the door.

    Ha! I sat next you during the first drill hall meeting Dino. I was one of the early guys also to the right of teddy. I wanted to ask you what was up with the eye drops. What teddy said is true. If you have doubts make an appointment with your doctor now.

    If you fail the medical do they notify you or just leave you hanging, I know no news is good news. But if you straight up fail it you get a letter or something?

    That's what I'm worried about. I don't want to wait for a letter, I feel like this is so time sensitive that if I have to wait for a letter I'm outta the process. Made a doc app for Monday, I'll be hand delivering a letter Monday/Tuesday as a back up. Anyone have the number for the medical dept at fire academy south before I head down there? I'd look pretty stupid dropping off a letter if all was well and good lol.

    Mrs. Hammond said wait 7 business days and if you don't hear anything you're good. If there is red flag I think she said you will get a call. Mailed letters were for FP dates.

I'm going above her on Monday to her boss to get to the bottom of this. Hammond obvioisly doesnt know ****. She strung me along and held my file and now I'm part of the grouo getting called that did cpat THRU cfd. I paid for my cpat and shoyldve been close to the front of the line.
    2ndGenCFD, you are right we have all been told things and been led on, but I really don't appreciate when I share something you don"t want to hear, that you say I am speaking a line of ****. if you get upset everytime something is said you don't like, and go off on people, than people will stop posting and no information will be shared...good or bad.

    2ndGENCFD, I agree with Goldie. He was just sharing info, take it for what it is worth. You have been going on for months about your connections and going above people to their superiors, that not only is a poor practice in the chain of command, and has not even with all of your comments and threats you seem to be in the same place. I also don't appreciate all the bashing of guys like myself who just started this process in May 13. Sorry you guys were left in the cold, and sorry some of us who weren't 2009 FP ended up getting called and processed before you. But if one thing seems to be true over time with the CFD, not just our 2006 test, is it is all uncertain...and it is really winning the lottery. I am grateful I was called so quickly and that I have had everything done for awhile and it looks like I am going in NOV 18. But I think you are wrong, you make it seem like you have been waiting years and some of us a few months...when the truth is all of us have been waiting over 7 years now. So if we are all going to work together one day and take pride/tradition in this job, we should support each other and not bash each other.
