    On the last test we received two different scores, one for msp (with decimal) and the regular test with just a whole number score. Do you know how they did the rounding up and down of the scores i.e. ( was a 95.4 a 95 and a 95.6 a 96 on the regular civil service test) And if the msp is going to use the decimal for the list, it makes a huge difference in my placement on the list. thanks

    To my knowledge (based on the 10+ people I know who took the exam), the CS score is rounded up or down according to your actual score (the MSP score).

    .01-.49 rounded down
    .50-.99 rounded up

    will the msp be going by decimal point scores for the list?

    You're a rocket scientist, aren't you? Just a guess.

    Can someone explain something specific about "2n+1" IN PARTICULAR, EVERY CANDIDATE TIED WITH THAT LAST PERSON.

    Example: If a town is looking to hire two officers, they send out five emails + everyone tied with the last person. (If that fifth person is a resident vet with an 88) Who will receive emails? Only resident vets with 88's? Only resident vets with 88's and above? or anyone regardless of preference with an 88 or an 88 or above?

    If the 5th person for selection on the list placement is a vet, with an 88, that's the lowest they are going to go according to preference/score.

    I didn't get 2 scores for mine. I just got one score with no decimal points.... Anyone know why?

    Sounds like you didn't fill in the MSP bubble dark enough.

    Hypothetical question here. Has anyone accepted a position with a PD that was not your first choice and either pre academy or during....been offered to begin recruitment with another PD that you would prefer? What would be a professional way to handle that situation? Thanks

    also...the PD where one has already accepted employment pending mptc graduation is NON CS...the PD now looking to recruit is CS

    I wouldn't say or do a thing until I had my offer from the CS PD and I went through psych medical and PAT.

    But that depends on the time frame of when you start the academy with non CS PD.

    Shosh328,

    You do realize that by posting your exact ranking on a list that's publicly posted you've basically removed any anonymity you had on this site?

    Also, you use the same screen name on just about every forum you're on. Kawasaki, NEShooters, you name it. Actually believe it or not, anyone with half the ability to search the web, can come up with your name eventually. I know I did. Took a total of 3 minutes. Get my drift, ZM?

    Bro just be thankful and lucky these guys are helping you out before Hank The Tank saw this first. There'd be screenshots of your house from Google earth, FB photos up, etc... ;)

    Here's what baffles me...

    Last exam in 2009- there were 2000 people that scored 97 or above. Roughly.

    This exam... 4500. Roughly.

    Did everyone suddenly get ultra proficient in these shitty CS exams?? How the hell does the scoring pool for 97+ DOUBLE between exams, with the same amount of test takers? Something doesn't smell right... I know idiots that can't walk and chew bubblegum that scored higher than I. Can't figure it out...

    Also... Pretty awesome that I'm slightly over 100 in the dirty woo's list, but I'm TOO FUCKING OLD.

    I'm gonna go kick my cat...

    What you don't see is the other side of the coin. My department is flying through the candidate list. The score is the score, but people are washing out in the background process. We are pickier than most places. Our BI guys, look very closely at each candidate. Yeah, it is possible that we are too picky. I think in some instances, we may have missed out. But most of the bypasses have been right on the money.

    Has anyone heard anything about MSP? Are they taking classes?

    Take the great bay test in NH. Much higher chance of getting on. Don't need to be a resident, and only one Academy in the state.
