    Been out of town, I just received notice this morning that I was recommended to continue to backgrounds.
    Does anyone know how the ranking system works for SFPD?

    Also, my best wishes go out to all of you here that are in contention for the January academy.
    Please don't forget about the rest of us once you start. If you guys have a couple minutes a week to let us know how you guys are doing in the academy that would be great! Good luck brothers!

      I don't think the ranking really matters much to be honest. I wasn't ranked that high but I got assigned a BI and made it through here. I'm hoping that I'm a college grad in criminal justice and a bilingual speaker would help me get selected haha.

              Thanks for chiming in.
              Also got my confirmation email today. Quite a relief.

              Email states I am on a tentative eligible list, and I don't even know what that is. Says list will be viewable after December 11th (online or at 1 Van Ness).

              I'm assuming that having a lower converted/total score in the 700s doesn't bode as well as a guy in the 1000s? Also anyone know how the "Rank" score works -- does a 1 or 2 mean you are top, and an 8 or 10 mean low?

                College grad CJ and bilingual sounds pretty good. I'm also bilingual (but not highly common language), however I have associates not BA. I'm assuming "Rank" will make the big difference on the last stage when being pegged for academy entrance.

                      According to Jen Lo, the rank in the email we just received is based solely on the video portion of the NTN test.
                      My rank was 8. There are 580 other candidates on the E130 list at rank 8 or better.

                      I've read that SF gets somewhere around 3,500 per each eligible list (not sure if that is accurate), if that is true, then 8 isn't too bad in my book. That would be in the top 20%.
                      Once again, I don't know if that number is accurate though.

                        And I'm assuming that education, languages and work experience play a major role in the ranking system afterward

                              • I have seen a pattern of the calls going out two weeks prior to academy, and if it's in January do the math. The hiring meeting is supposedly this week according to a couple sources so who know when we will hear something !!
