    I have a question. I live in North Carolina (moved from the NY area just after the test) and I am 3xxx on the list. I can't quit my current job and move back to the NY area unless I know I am definitely hired which from what I understand doesn't happen until 2 or 3 weeks before class starts. The way I read the residency requirements that I don't need to have my NYC or surrounding county address until appointment. My question is when exactly is "appointment"? Also, will the fact that I live in NC slow down my investigation process? I'm sure some of you are in the same boat as me. Can anyone provide some insight. Thanks

    That's for your investigation, you get to do all kinds of fun paperwork when you get back from vacation, congrats and good luck. You will be processing for the July class so you got a few months before CPAT rolls around.

    I'm also #20XX. I haven't gotten anything yet, but I live in Chicago, so it might take a few days to get to me. Looking forward to moving real soon.

    took my cpat today and passed with 2 mins 15 sec left, was surprised to see a guy in front of me laying on a stretcher receiving oxygen when i finished. guess he wasn't in shape.

    anybody with list #'s around 1400 get anything on the medical or psych yet?
    Low 1300's and I had my psych 2 weeks ago.... still no word on the medical though. I took the physical yesterday too..... you got me beat by 10 seconds lol, I had 2:05 left on the clock. I'm gonna start running every day for the next 4 months or so until January.

    Hi fellas. I also passed my cpat today with 2:53 left. I know a guy in low 1500's, and he's got his medical next friday. I'm sitting in the upper 1300's with no word on either the psych/med; I've emailed my investigator today regarding this but haven't heard from him, yet. I'll let you guys know once I get something in the mail.

    Boombahtz,

    How long are you on vacation for? I believe they usually give you 1 month before you have the appointment to go turn in your documents.. (At least that's how it was with me back in February). Good luck with your background investigation and the rest of the process.

    Same goes for all of you who have received investigative packets. Get on that ASAP.. Time flies by and before you know it, you have to turn it in at MetroTech.. Make your lives easier and makes copies of EVERYTHING for your selves and make sure that the appropriate documents are notarized.

    So, Tomace, here's what i can offer you in terms of insight. If you are not applying for residency CREDIT on your written exam, I dont think you have to be a resident till your appointment (i.e. when you get offered the job and accept it.)

    The 5 point residency credit required all of us to have bills from march 07 to 08 or something like that, i cant remember the actual months. After that period, im not sure if you need to maintain residency while you wait, but i dont think you do.

    The only thing that makes me question what i just said, is that the investigators recently contacted us (the people who were on the fringes of the recent june class) to get a CURRENT paystub and bill. Im not sure why they did this or what it means. Maybe somebody else in the forum can tell us.

    The fact that you live in NC wont slow the investigation. Just be super careful that you dont miss a mailing and that you reply to your investigator ASAP. In fact, ive found that if your investigator has your email, this makes things much less reliant on snail mail, which would be good for you given the chance for errors and the increased delivery time.

    Best,
    AAL

    Appointment is the day you raise your right hand and take the oath...this, for most, usually occurs 1 week before the accademy class offically begins. You need to have all your paperwork in order prior to swearing in. NYS DL....bank account or other bills to prove residency.

    That's weird... I'm 22XX and didn't get mine yet... hopefully it's on the way. I live in staten island, so it shouldn't take that much longer to get it than others... should it?

    Default Medical

    I heard that you have to take the medical again after you finish the academy and that is the last step to getting on the job. I believe you do the medical once a year after that.Can anyone tell me if this is true? thanks a lot. Shanny

    You take a medical almost every year of your career... If you are hiding something they will probably find it.

    since roughly 880 people went in the first class is that a decent number to base future class list numbers off. i know nothings for sure but in the past is that how it worked?

    I highly doubt it. I think many in that 880 who did not enter this class will be in the next or subsequent classes.

    Further, I'm not sure attrition numbers will require classes of 300+ after the next class or two.
