    Any more talk of a third fire academy? Or is that pretty quiet now with the Paramedic academy happening?

    A friend of mine was in the class that just finished up this week and he told me he heard they are shooting to do final processing for the 3rd class in September.

    I've also talked to some of the guys in the department and they have said that they are still planning a third class. However, they are thinking it would more likely be this winter.

    July 10 2013 - Completed the CPAT (on my own at NIPSTA)
    November 1-November 7 2013 - Background investigation/fingerprinting three times (some glitch caused problems)/home visit for BI
    December 12, 2013 - Meeting at 1338 S. Clinton regarding medical
    January 9, 2014 - Completed medical exam at health works
    ....haven't heard a thing since.

    I've email Ms. Hammond a number of times.

    What do you guys think, should I be worried I fell through the cracks or something? Should I show up at 1338 S. Clinton?
    Not entirely sure I'll take the job if offered, but would still like to have the option.

    One question I have is the following (assuming I get the nod):
    How far in advance of final processing can I expect to receive the letter informing me of the final processing?
    How much time between final processing and the academy will I have?

    I have issues regarding my current job that might outright prohibit me from taking a position with the CFD if I don't have enough advance notice. Hoping I will have at least a month.

    Thanks guys.
    Any chance you remember the random number you were assigned?

    I am not sure, but I think 2700 something. Don't know the exact number. My social is xxx-xx-xx50.

    Does anyone know how big the 3rd class is going to be? I was told it would be a "small" class.

    It doesn't seem that anyone has gotten an official word on a third class.

    If they move forward, it's going to decide on if they just want to use the people remaining from the processing that began last year for a class, which would likely make it smaller than the two classes that ran already, or if they want to begin processing more people who remain from the '06 test.

    I know I'm late to the game but I can't read through 553 pages on this thread. Can anyone please give me a quick run down of how this last list went ? How many hirings, how many classes etc. ? Are there any preferred demographics for Chicago ? Basically would it be worth it for a white male with veteran status to go across the country to take this next test ? Thanks

    Yes, 25% of the hires must be vets. It's a lottery and has nothing to do with ability. Your vet status will let you jump over thousands of candidates.

    I'll definitely look into it then, thanks for the info.

    What is the typical class size? I would hate for them to say something like, "It's not worth putting together a class for just 44 people."
