    I'm on the same boat as you, low 8's and no invite. Need to work on my fitness so I'll be ready for the next process. Saw a lot of low 7's and high 6's at my test date.
    One guy from my group I think scored in the high 5s and some 6s. I feel like working on a hand crew, FF1 cert and military really helps too.

    8:15 which is pretty slow compared to the other guys I tested with.

    Gotta be hearing something soon. PAT's ended Jan 31. They have to be reviewing/selecting now because Captains Interviews are Feb 10-20.

    anyone hear anything back? The rest of the process was so quick I assumed we would've heard back by now.

    Lol - 6:34 is better than some of their active FFs get, and is better than 95% of the candidates will get. The Biddle is known as being harder than the CPAT, and Long Beach's Biddle is specifically a bit harder than the Biddle for other departments. If you got a 6:34 on the LB Biddle, you are in excellent shape.

    Any pointers I know being fit is one but is there a strategy on running the course?

    Do you know if 6:30 and faster is still their desired time?
    Good Call! Was thinking LGB this whole time. Yup, LAX definitely longer, but it depends on day you're traveling. Call and ask for guidance on what to do.

    There's always a rumor of the time they "want". To be honest, I did the Biddle and didn't push myself too hard and scored in high 7 minutes. I was still sweating and my proctor said I definitely should have gone a lot harder with my effort. I told him I was saving it for the tower and definitely exploded the last 2 minutes, but he wanted explosive effort the whole time and said I could have received a much lower time. I'm closer to 40 y/o and have that "dad strength" and been doing the job for a while, so I rely a lot on technique and "smooth is fast". I still received an interview and so did everyone I tested with that passed. Maybe 4 or 5 didn't pass the biddle during my afternoon session.
