    i got two scores too. if you read the emails the first score was for the town/mbta and the second was for state police. It seems like they make two seperate lists. to me it looks like what you are getting on your state police score is your actual score and the state police must rank you based on actual score. the score you received for the town/mbta is the same just rounded to the nearest whole number

    It minus well

    Is that Ebonics for a good calculator?
     
  7. I tend to agree...98-100 is an A IMO, 97-B, 96 and below....better luck next time, but I'm a noob so who knows...that's just how I have always thought about it.

    Chances are pretty slim brother the lowest state police goes is 97 not any lower.

    96 isn't great, but it's not an end-game. Want to be a defeatist? That's completely and entirely up to you. Somehow I managed to get a job with my lousy little 95 back when I got on. Took the test the year I got on, again and got a 99. But by that point and time, I was already headed for academy.

    The lesson here is that you don't get hired on score alone. I have seen people with 98 and better get eliminated in the process because other than the test score, they sucked. And I am far from a n00b.

    I haven't gotten my scores yet. Non res, non vet, but I have a few questions about my retirement though.

    You are still in academy I take it. Mu suggestion to you is delete your account, and lock down your FB page. I found you in about 30 seconds flat. Not a bad bunch of info that you posted up there, But you aren't in until your past all probation period kind of in. I would also familiarize myself with your department's Social Media Policy.

    I can never understand anyone who either has one foot in the door, or just stepped over the threshold, still posting on these pages. You are not on the job YET. You still need to err on the side of caution

    So this is my first time going through this process. As far as municipalities go, do we only go on the list for the town in which we reside? Or may we select additional towns as well? At what point do we make that selection?

    Thanks!

    This is entirely true. I got on with a 94; like him I took the test after I began the process and got an 89. I was still getting postcards after I got off FTO.

    That decimal score of the State Police side is your first clue - microscopic details - get used to it - they'll be counting the hairs in your nose and ears on Day 1 - better have the right amount.

    MSP has so many candidates - scores have to be broken down tighter than two digits - hence being carried out to hundredths.

    Aye yi yi !

    That's some hardcore shit right there yo ! Does the MSP really count hairs in your nose and ears? What happens if I don't have the right amount?

    I'm already stressed out because I haven't heard from anyone from HRD yet and this will make it worse.

    The most bad ass job in Massachusetts Public Safety is to have the privilege of tearing up the pike doing 80 in a 10 year old SUV with disaster plates on the way to the Brimfield Antiques Show and have the siren and amber lights cranking like a boss.
