    For all those posting theirs scores/towns you may want to post if your vet, dvet, 402A/B, etc as thats what really seems to determine your ranking

    Be sure to be upfront and honest if you ever do get called about that.

    oh of course. i've had dispatcher interviews about it. i had an internship with a local department and i told them about it and they said its ok as long as when the time comes to get hired you disclose it in full and be up front about it.

    Thanks for the replies. I have a couple more questions since everyone here seems extremely knowledgeable on the topic. Is a 96 a good score for the exam? I am not considered a resident because I lived out of state the year prior for school. Does anyone know the total amount of people who took the test? What if I really don't care what department I work for, I really have nothing tying me to the area I'm in now so i would be willing to travel to / move to whatever area I'm needed. Thanks for all the help everyone!

    It's impossible to say if a 96 is a good score until the range of scores is known, since every test is different. For the test I was hired from, you pretty much had to get a 98 or higher to be considered, but in other years, a 95 would make the cut.

    As far as residency, there is an exemption for military where your home of record is considered your residency, and there may be something similar for full-time students. Call civil service and explain that while you were at school, you considered your Massachusetts address to be your permanent residence, and see if they'll grant an exemption.

    I'd suggest looking down south. If you don't get the residency thing figured out and you're not a veteran, you aren't going to be at the top of any lists...even though a 96 is a good score.

    how long do you guys think it will take (approx) for the state to make the up the lists?

    Whenever someone within CS figures out how to click "In descending order" within Excel; I'm assuming another 5 months.

    He's actually being serious. I've never seen a certified list come out prior to Nov.

    put me up in that office and i will have your lists ready tomorrow....i guess i'm going to have to be patient. i would think they would come out quicker because of how fast the test results came out. i feel like they were on their game this year...tho this was my first time taking it.

    You can be optimistic, the rest of us will continue to be realistic.
