That's good to hear. The only thing is, I feel bad for all the people that were excited to be called and didn't make it. I mean if you think about it, they got 100 out of 600....That's a few hundred people who were turned down that I feel bad for....Considering a couple of hundred didn't show up and didn't want it.....

Well at least they got their chance. Maybe a lot of under 21 applicants. This gives hope to people like me with high list numbers(5XXX). Round 2 of the physical testing should take place late next year hopefully.

SO OUT OF 634 THEY BARELY GOT 100?? IM FIGURING ALOT MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE PASSED THEIR MEDICAL, CDL ROAD TEST AND RESIDENCY CREDITS...IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE THAT ONLY 100 OUT OF 634 MADE IT. THERE ARE ABOUT 35 POEPLE ON AVERAGE IN EACH PRE ORIENTATION CLASS AFTER UNDER 21'S (AGE) AND NO RESIDENCY PROOF ....TIMES X AMOUNT OF CLASSES. SO MY QUESTION IS THIS.....OBVIOUSLY MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE MADE IT FAR ENOUGH TO GET CALLED FOR FINAL PROCESSING SO I FIGURE THEY ARE CHECKING BACKGROUNDS (LICENSE, JOBS, AND CRIMINAL RECORDS) TO WEED PEOPLE OUT, DOES ANYONE AGREE?? PLUS HOW ARE SO MANY OF YOU ON THIS POST SO SURE YOU ARE GETTING CALLED (UNLESS YOU HAVE A SQUEAKY CLEAN RECORD?) I AM # 3** AND PASSED EVERYTHING FROM MEDICALS TO CDL ROAD TEST, JUST WONDERING IF MY BACKGROUND CHECK MIGHT GET IN THE WAY (MY BACKGROUND IS NOT THAT BAD EITHER BUT NOT SQUEAKY CLEAN)

I know i'm squeaky clean... I passed everything ... Never been arrested or processed.. Also never been pulled over , ever.... my list # is low 300's..
It does suck for the people that were probably passed up or failed out.. But such is life !
Hopefully the calls go out sometime within the next week or so .

If you mean cedit for city residence, no doctors note is going to give you that! You need only those items listed on the letter and only those don't try bringing something else they won't accept it.

I don't feel bad for those that didn't show for the pre-orientation, we all did! I feel sorry for those that are not yet 21 but maybe they just get passed over until they are 21? As far as a background check as long as you"did your time" and paid your finds AND TOLD THEM ABOUT IT I think you should be find.

GMAN,

Thanks for this information - It is much appreciated! Anyone else that has orientation this week and hears similar information or anything about if/when the classes are going to start please post.

Thanks,

Mike
