Ok, then you're safe so as long as you pass the PAT. After that, it's easy sail from there, until the academy of course. Hope to see you there on the 9th, bright and early!

I got a 97 on the test and still haven't received my letter. Talked to a few others who received their letters and they scored 97's. Any idea why I haven't got mine? Never had one hiccup during the process.

Yes I moved to another location in Southie. Do you think that could be the reason why I didn't receive my letter? Should I contact my background investigator?
Did you leave a forwarding address after you moved?

Yea, that's the issue. Most likely, your letter was sent to your old address resulting in you not physically receiving a letter. A few people is going through the same thing you're going through.

Best bet is to reach out to your BI (background inves to see what he/she can do for you. All you need from the letter is 1, to assure that you're scheduled to attend the PAT and 2, your PREVIEW and PAT ACTUAL date and start times.

I just talked to my BI and I am good to go. I am in for the first PAT. Just wanted to say thanks for the help. Good luck to everyone who have their letters and everyone waiting for their letters.

Right, but how many of those people are going to get a spot in the academy. Is there 70 spots, 80...? Didn't know if anyone knew the number if spots that were available in the class.

For Police PAT you have to hold a revolver at arm's length and pull the trigger 50 times with each hand...for the Fire PAT the test is similar only you use a TV Remote

Just took it and passed. Then was told there may not be enough spots. Guess I should change my last name to begin with an A that way I'd have no worries.
Congrats on the pass. I hope it works out very well for you.
