    And you are right about taking the test over and being placed back in the line again, but hey thats just how things are now. If they were still doing 1,000+ classes you wouldnt even have to worry about making it into Jan. If you re took the test today, and if they keep up this current pace of 250 or so guys, you might not see the academy until 2 or so years from now just for the fact that they really havent even finished with the 6000 exams or even cracked the 7000 ones yet.
    Understandable....thanks.

    taking the test again would put you in the back on the line.... but atleast you'd be in line in case this january doesn't happen for you. good luck
    I understand now....if for whatever reason it doesn't pan out for me in January could re-taking the exam put me in contention for the July 2010 class or would it be too early?

    By the way; I just found out that it expires on January 11th of next year, ironically....lol. That's the second Monday in Jan; wouldn't the new academy classes begin at the start of a particular month - for example and in this case, Monday January 4th?

    Could the fact that I have received numerous letter's (generic) in the mail about joining the force play to my chances? Again, they do have my information on me passing all of my exams.

    Again, all I am waiting for is my college transcript to arrive in the mail and then I will be off to Lefrak.

No where on my sheet with my list number does it say to go to Lefrak City and schedule fingerprinting and the other stuff? Should I be waiting or should I schedule this stuff? (mind you I am exam 8322 so I realize that I have no chance at getting on anytime soon, but if I can get the initial stuff done with and out of the way I'd like to).
    It wouldnt hurt to ask. I would call the APD, explain your situation and exam number and just ask if you should be waiting for a letter, or can you schedule Lefrak City yourself.

    By the way there is no way they will put 100 people into the Academy. At least 250. They probably mean there will be an extra 100 on top of what there was going to be. And if your saying "They cancelled the Jan academy and now it's back on", I don't think they ever cancelled it, it was a political stunt for Bloombergs re-election. They never cancelled the class they just didn't schedule one until now.

    I was fingerprinted when I took the exam. They do it again?

    (They must really want those 75 dollars!)

    Alright, i ment no one has contacted me about going to the academy. My process is done. Just waiting on that elusive call.

    And whether its 100 or 250 or 300 guys they put through, its a far cry from the 1,000+ they use to have.

    I have received generic letters in the mail through-out the year asking to see if I am interested in re-enlisting.
    Im really not even sure what testing numbers they are on right now, they might still be in the 8,000's or even the 9,000's by now. If they continue at this pace of sending only 250-400 guys through every Jan/July its going to be a long wait because i dont think they even finished the 6,000's or even cracked the 7,000 list exams yet. My exam number is 7042 and i have yet to be contacted.

    The problem is that when the NYPD spiked up their pay, alot of guys whos test number was in the 4,000's or 5,000's started opening up their cases again, and that pushed alot of us back.
