    When I was taking college classes I had a guy in my class he applied scored like an 104 and he was in the 1xx range. He said the turn out was HUGE.

    A co worker of mine was top 10. Passed everything and not hired. So, if you're applying with no preference points, you'll have a better shot hitting a home run blind folding on the first pitch of spring training.

    Correct. Residential produces many hopeful applicants.

    I am going to guestimate about 600-800 people at the orientation.

    There is residential, military and educational preference and a ten point max on that. I believe it is one or the other on education and military plus any residency points.

    Good to know. No preference here so I'll take that into consideration, thanks.

    Correct. 100% is top score on written and applicants are allowed 10 preference points onto their written score. 110% being the top. There will be at least 15 applicants that score at 110%.

    Shifts are 8 hours with the same exact days off for the year (Mon/Tues, Thurs/Fri, ect.). Regular days, noons, and mids. Young department as Cadets get hired before any applicants at 21 and become POs and spend their careers there.

    If you don't score above 105, stay home. 110 is the max score or used to be. Anyone in 110 or 109 range will be put through testing.

    A Cdr. shows to be a speaker at the orientation. She is an author and a routine blogger. Well known in law enforcement and pretty down to earth.

They scored 90+ on the written and were way down the list. I read somewhere some one scored a 100 on written and was 60th on the list. I'm curious if they got to move on in the process. Is that written test really that easy?
    Some written tests are. If they use the NCJSO 1 exam... Unless you score over 90 on that WITHOUT preference, don't expect to be anywhere close to the top. I've seen lists that use that NCJSO exam, and usually the first 10/15 people are all over 100. The last one I did, I had a 96 with preference and I was still 30's.
