    3 week fast before medicals. In all honesty, I think that's a range to shoot for as it looks like it aligns with a standard BMI chart. I'm in the 6'1 category and right at the upper limits with an athletic build. I'm sure during medicals they will have some leniency if you exceed the range but are in great shape.

    you’re going fast 3 weeks prior? Hahaha! I think I’ll join you if I get there! Same boat for the 6’3” category, but hitting 210 will be a challenge. Doing work now...

    Yeah I wanna say I remember reading someone posting they sent out 1500 letters..and then shortly after everyone got their score. But yeah literally everyone I know and everyone they know is in band 1. I’m not sure if some people are just saying that because they’re embarrassed or what.

    The speculation was majority of people landed in band 1 due to how easy the test was and how they weighted it. Also going off here and Californiafirefighter, everyone posting has been band 1 and it seems everyone they know has been band 1.

    I think if your over the weight, you have to be less than 22% body fat..and I’m sure they use calipers to test that.

    Mine is scheduled for 4/29. Regardless of speculations, I'm going into this as if it's "a million dollar interview." I'm just thinking, maybe County's initial thought was interview=CJO, but with making the test slightly easier, and widening the score range for Band 1, maybe County wasn't anticipating this many people to place as they did. Prove me wrong County!

    I remember back mid-last year during one of county's application info sessions, the Captain had mentioned if you make it to interview, you're basically in line for a CJO unless you really bomb your interview. And I remember earlier in this thread that there was speculation that the written test was 100% weighted and the interview none. Considering how many people were placed in Band 1, and some of the guys I know getting interview dates, it kind of seems like a pipe dream to get handed a CJO just for making it to the digital selection interview. Hopefully I'm wrong and we're all going to be part of the Sept. towers!

    navymech honestly I don’t know anymore. I’m hearing so many different things from people. Some people are saying that these selection digital interviews are just a screening process for the department and others say if you’ve gotten to this step you’ll get a CJO. As far as timeline goes, I think you’re right about the v banders being in 157 & 158. So that would leave us in band 1 for the 2 academies in September. From the looks of it, people who already got CJOs are getting them about a month or so after their interviews. Let’s just hope we get that offer sooner than later.
    Do you think they did a lottery for interview selections? I can't imagine all 2,500-3,000 or however many are in band 1are all interviewing, at least not yet.

I’m wondering if they’re planning on pushing the first group of people who interviewed faster so that they can get them for one of the June academies. Everyone else who is scheduled towards the end of April will most likely be for the September academies. What’s your thought?
    I believe 156,157, and 158 are going to be primarily vband with some band one. I think that with most of vband spoken for in terms of cjos, back grounds etc, there is a real potential for the people who have interviewed to be hearing something soon. I think with in the next couple of weeks. I have a friend who went from the background orientation in late February to June 8th academy job offer. So the timeline was a month and a half of processing. I think that if the ball get rolling we stand a chance to be in one of the later two academies.
