DISASTER is not just their plates. It's a way of life.

Sigh.... Yes, you are; what's ironic is you and all the other kids like you that have proliferated this site are the reason why I rarely log on...
Jeez, I don't know how PDs have been hiring cops off CS all these years w/o the internet. How in the hell did guys/gals ever get on the job before? Hmm, I, like more than a few before me, waited; we didn't go around telling others what our score was, because no one cared; or panicking about not getting it when Joe Blow did. We waited.. Patiently and quietly.. I realize it's a new concept with you younger guys; it's readily apparent with every class that graduates an academy.. You guys aren't trying to glean info or learn something; you're whining like children. If you have a legitimate question, not the inane drivel here but legit stuff, call Ashburton Place, otherwise standby for further instructions...
Long time no see broseph..
Looks like they just approved the budget for 180 new State Troopers for a recruiting class starting in December. They sent out letters already, too bad it wasn't for this exam.
Looks like you just came out of a cave and subscribed to da interwebs today.
Been spending the weekends in the Caymans with Heff bro. We'll catch up soon.
This lately has been as good as the 80th RTT thread. Anyone wanna put together a youtube vid like the 80th? That would be funny. I would but I'm a putz with that stuff
Udders are udders ked !!!!!!!!!!
I was wondering if anyone could offer some assistance in regards to the military make-up exams. My timing with this is clearly terrible as I see scores were recently released and contacting HRD is seemingly impossible at the moment. I figured I would try here to see if anyone could offer clarification as I am trying to figure the situation out in a timely manner and it seems HRD will be backed up for some time.
The civil service site has a "NOTE:" under the military make-up exam link that says you must have applied by the original deadline. However, on the HRD site, it also has a document that states:
"Military applicants who have not filed an exam application as a result of being in active service, must request to file for the military make-up exam in writing, not later than six months after their discharge/release from active duty.
Military Make-up requests must be accompanied by:
• documentation of dates of service (a DD214 Member-4 Form, military orders, or a Commanding Officer’s Verification Letter),
• contact information: mailing address, daytime telephone, and email address. (Please note that for ongoing monthly military make-up exams, HRD sends Notices to Appear to applicants only by email)..."
That comes after the wording that states military applicants that registered for the exam by the deadline need to just call and schedule a makeup via a phone call. I am just trying to figure out if that is an old document that contradicts the current policy or not. Anyone who has gone through this process and/or has any insight they could provide - it would be greatly appreciated.
yes, my trooper score was hgiher than my town/mbta score
My eyes and head hurt from reading all of this.
When they send out cards are they clearly marked? What color are they?
don't forget, Deuce has a job you may never get.
one shouldn't comment on a job they have no experience with.
alot of wmass is hiring
Looking for advice. Scored a 98 of town/city and MBTA and 100.16 with veteran points for MSP. I did not get any residence preference so I know that will hurt me. Is there any shot with a local department or should I start hoping they get down to the 100's for next MSP class?
Get down to the 100's? The most anyone can score is 102, I believe. You should be GTG to get a letter.
Ya I also believe 102 is highest you can get, but still don't know how many people got 102-101's. I just was wondering if the no residency anywhere will give me a slim chance anywhere but MBTA or MSP. I do live in a civil service town, but not for a year prior to test.
Shooter, register and message me. I have a friend going thru the same crap.
I doubt he will be back. He requested to have his account deleted and we honored his request.

i have a quick question if anyone could help i would appreciate it, my father was killed on duty..due to state legislature the state of MA declared he wasnt "killed in the line of duty" but his department lists him as dying on duty, i took the test and score in the low 90's i was wondering if anyone knows or has a idea of my chances getting on his department? thanks
Without the 402a or 402b preference and without any veterans preference, you are going to need to have at least residency preference to have a hope of getting on...even then, the department will probably need to have lots of open positions for that to happen.
I used my detective-fu to figure out who you and your Dad are, and your best bet is going to be to get on the legislature to have some sort of death benefit paid to the family to hopefully increase your chances. Good luck and sorry for your loss.
