    Default Apply for Vegas in OCT?

    Just curious as to what the vets think about a greenhorn applying in October to take the LVFD written exam in Jan '08? I am currently working on my bachelors degree and still have about 4 semesters until I graduate. However, I thought I could still apply for the test and I would gain experience in what the test is like and all that good stuff, even though I'm not sure I would take the job if I passed everything and was offered it, because I really want that degree. Wise or not so much? Ideas, comments, thoughts?

    Apply for it, but do everything you can to prepare. If you get the job and take it. Is your whole goal in life to be a firefighter or have a college degree? If you want to be a firefighter and have a college degree you will find a way to make it work.

    If you are dead set on waiting until you get the degree, apply anyway to get the experience. I apply with every dept in my area even if I don't want to work there because experience with interviewing never hurts. But I have found out once I walk into a station for my interview and see the apparatus sitting there I instantly want to work there.
