Jmazz,
You have up to ten days from when you are notified in writing that you have been bypassed to file an appeal (it can take up to 6 months to be notified in writing). What I'm trying to say is that filing an bypass appeal is something you want to think long and hard about. My advise is call around to a few good CS lawyers and start saving $$ for a retainer. When you get the actual notice of bypass sit down with the Attorney you've selected and he'll have a pretty good idea whether or not your case stands a shot against an appeal. Try to relax some and realize that whatever they've decided to do with this hiring will not even see a pre-hearing conference for at least a year (or 2 depending on backlog), be patient and think about long term ramifications (both pros and cons). If the only problem the mayor has with you is your age or lack of education both will change over time, but if you persue an appeal the mayor may look at it as some young kid second guessing his/her judgement, that could follow you around a lot longer.
