    I wouldn't over analyze these lists unless you are near the top but anything is possible. Brett Favre said it best, there's still hope...

    I got a 97 rank 525. So does that mean there are 525 people who scored above me and what are the chances of me getting called for an interview.

    525 people in front of you for a town with 20 officers is not good. If your on the list for Boston PD, you might stand a chance.

    Common sense, junior. Give us some context--we're not mind readers here.

    Ranked 19 for town like Methuen would be a good place to be during a good economy. Though right now, even being in the top 10 will be tough.

    Just got the holy card....Luckily I am already a non-civil service special and the hiring process won't be too much of a hassle.

    Its all a waiting game, obviously. Everyone is anxious and needs a job. But if you get hired, the years will pass so fast it will make your head spin. Its a different but good lifestyle, but the time absolutely flies once you're on. Enjoy your time while you still have some.

    I was checking my score and where I stand on the Soaris website. What does "total ties within rank" mean? I scored a 99 on the exam. Next to my score it shows where I stand then beside that it says "total ties within rank." Not sure what that means. Can anyone clarify that for me?

    Got a 100 on the exam, non-vet residency in Boston. Ranked 287 with only 7 civilians tied with me. Any chance i get an opportunity at the application process?

    hypothetically if you're a resident and you got a 99, and your rank is 3 but there are 10 total ties within rank it means you and 9 other people that are residents scored and ranked the same.

    I thought you had to be a resident to work for BPD? Or does that mean establish residency by the time you go in the academy?

    I am also curious about Boston going through 287 people.

    Hes a nonvet resident. But yes you need residency to be a boston oolice officer by appointment. You can still choose boston without residency as one of your 4 munis.

    I think his chances are pretty good if they hire and aren't looking for something specific.

    Why is it that when a department calls for a CS list you will be on the list before someone because your name is alphabetically higher, even w same score?

    IE. Ben Adams 99
    Zach Williams 99

    Ben would show up on the list before Zach just because of his name...

    Both would be called.....if they based your position on the list by name, there would be thousands of MA residents changing their name to Aaron Aardvark.

    When you get on however, seniority within your score goes by name (at least at my job). I have been screwed by that way of doing things at my last two jobs. I think it should be based first by score, then by overall academy standing (isn't that how the MSP does it?)....
