    Does anyone know how the test on Saturday is going to be structured? Is it going to be like the CS exam or be something completely different? Is it still going to be pass/fail or scored? Also, how do the appointments work (I get that it will most likely be political), but if they aren't how it would work? Thank you everyone for your help.

    P/f. They can handpick whoever they want. Remember that Guyanese kid whining about the force being too white? It's goin to be mostly minority picked. Being one myself, I still think it's unfair someone can be born with a certain skin color and be privileged. MAMLEO is all over

    Has anyone heard any updates on when the process is going to be moving forward. I heard backgrounds investigations begin in January. Was wondering is anyone heard anything else or any specifics?

    I had one more question. Are Cadets allowed to work overtime or details?

    Both Cadet class AND Recruit class are on hold due to lack of candidates I've been told...both will go forward, hopefully as planned asap.

    Lack of candidates? For BPD? Unreal. Tell them I'll be on Williams Ave for Day 1. I'll even work for free during the academy, if I can have the job when I graduate.
    On a side note, I'm moving to Boston next year. I hope there is a similar shortage of candidates in 2019 when I qualify for residency preference.

    Lack of candidates! It is not true... total bull. Cards were sent to people that scored 95 and above. Some of us in the 95 bracket, have not even been contacted since we turned the application in.... because BI is conducted according to ranking on the list. There are over 1000 candidates on Boston list that scored lower than 95.. they have not even received cards yet... so to say there is no candidates... something funny is going on or about to.. lol.. if many people that ranked higher are being bypassed.. than they would probably have reached 95 by now.. which happens to be the lowest score/group that received cards.....
