    No, the stairmaster is the only real work out.

    Wow, this month for 4500 medicals?

    Someone MUST know something becuase they wouldn't do all this without reason.

      Yep it is all moving quick. I wonder how far in the list they will get with the medicals? But it will be awhile before they reach 4,500s for the academy. Anyone know how far in the list they reached for March people in the academy? 3,200?

        If 2:1 continues then they will reach about 3700, but I'm hoping that the number of people turning it down will increase. I'd be A LOT happier if they made it to 3800 or something like that.

        Will there be another class of 300 to follow? I've heard fall of '07, but why so late?

          What are the chances of someone getting hired with asthma. I heard that they disqualify people for that?

            Yes they do. You will be around lots of smoke and I'm sure you don't want to have an asthma attack at a job.

              Guys, I have a couple questions.

              How many reference letters do they send out? Two people that I put down for references have gotten their letters. I cant remember how many references we put down, is it two or three?

              Second, do they send letters to all of your past jobs or just your current job?

              Lastly, how do you know if you passed your psych and blood work?

              Do you just wait to see if you get a letter for the academy?

              Thanks boys

                You'll know if you failed the psych or medical. They won't let you know you passed. Just wait about 2 weeks after and call your investigator and ask.

                  SOmeone may have asked this already, but how often do people have a medical and a psych and then not get hired because the list never gets high enough to reach them. Does that happen or not really?

                      4,500's here, went for medical as well. What I heard was the March Class is going to be around 250 guys. Meaning they may run through about 500 names on the list if it is 2:1. That would put the list up to around 3,600 or 3,700 after the March class. I also heard that after the March academy class, the future academy classes will be smaller in number closer to 200 or 150 in each and the next class after the March class will not start until at least September due to some slowing down. Anybody hear anything similar or different?

                          Hey gang,

                          A bit of information from good sources:

                          Feb 26 will be the swearing date for the March class. The class will consist of 300 probies and will last 18 weeks.

                          This will mean 5 weeks of more information to be covered in classrooms above the usual 10 weeks. There will be a larger emphasis on building construction, building inspection, and classes are more likely to be grouped together based around a building construction topic. CFR-D on Fridays, not EMT.

                          Be ready to run the 1.5 mile in under 13 min to stay in the class. You will also be asked to do 30 situps, 30 pushups, and 4 pullups that first week. Be ready to run LONG DISTANCES! 4 mile runs over the Triboro Bridge or into Manhattan are not rare. If you are not prepared, life will be hell.

                          The next class will also be 300 probies, 23 weeks, and will kick off in the fall. Classes are not expected to go longer than 23 weeks.

                          IMPORTANT: Probie pay will go up after 13 weeks, no matter how long your probie school is going to run!

                          Hope it helps...I'm out in 2 weeks! - #27xx

                            What's the time standard for these events?

                              Called the other day to check on an address, was told packets should go out to 4800's in March.

                                I hope they're still sending packets! Thats good news for everyone. It means the MUST need more people and boy do I hope that's the case.

                                FatherPierce, thanks for the info. Do they start you on the long distance runs right off the bat? I've been ramping up my running, but 4 miles is still along one for me.

                                How else has it been? Congrats on moving towards the end, how did it all go?

                                Any word on class after Fall? If they really are moving to a 2 larger/longer classes a year schedule, fall would make sense. It would set them, up for a Late Summer/Fall and then a Winter. Hence 2 classes a year.
