    Other than my score I have no credentials haha. So i'm hoping I get lucky.

    Hey Hey Hey! That's enough advice!

    No, I absolutely agree. Personally, I would not lie about a score (or anything else for that matter) and I hope others would not either. I know I will try my hardest and I am confident enough in myself that I do not worry about other people. I believe that what's meant to happen will happen.

    Credentials don't necessarily make a good officer.

    I work for a non-cs pd that had not put anyone through an academy in 15 years. Although every opening clearly states that academy trained candidates are strongly preferred, non-certified candidates can apply. I know of several very strong non-trained candidates that did not apply to a recent round of several openings a couple of years ago because the "knew" that they did not have a shot. After the town received the applications, all of the certified applicants had weak backgrounds. We ended up putting people through the academy. Several strong candidates who were town residents were upset becasue they did not apply becasue they assumed they wouldn't get through the first round.

    As I've said, your chances of being hired for a job are exactly 0% if you don't apply.

    As an officer you learn that credentials don't mean shit in the long run. I work with retired SEALs that are terrible patrol officers and I work with guys who had no prior experience before they got on the job who are great officers.

    Keep your head up, be positive, jump through the hoops and I'm sure you will get your shot.

    Well duh, the transition from balancing a beach ball to applied patrol procedures is not an easy one.

    Eh... they'd make perfect guys on my job. I think our admin would even support direct depositing FISH.

    Based on 2 other test scores that I know of that were higher than mine. There's at least 3 of us from here moving on to the PAT. Anyone else? Good Luck to everyone involved.

    When you get to the PAT, make sure you say "I hope this is the chow hall. Hey, how's it going, Eisenhower?" to the chief;

    You should contact Chief Gordon with your concerns.

    I think that everyone who passed the test (meaning scored above the "passing" mark, which I assume was 70) got called to take the PAT. I hope I am wrong but my buddy scored a 91 and he got called to take the PAT.

    A little surprised if that's the case. I would certainly hope anyone who takes that test would score a 70.

    I encourage him to do so. I also give referrals for people adopting animals at shelters.

    From my experience testing in NH a lot of people struggle with the Cooper standard tests. Ive seen the numbers thinned out significantly after the PAT.

    I got a 96.5 on the test but I shant be taking the PAT test. Probably because I'm so outta shape... Am I the only one here who thinks taking all these tests and such are a little much for guys who are fully trained and who are already full time police officers? Probably...

    Yep. Probably because guys like myself, who AREN'T academy trained, have to score well on these tests and pass the PT to have the slightest chance of getting hired. You're already on the job... Tests like this are my opportunity to finally get hired.

    Just so you all know Delta took this whole thing from my resume and then added my actual score to it!!!! Really no point in any of you continuing with your pursuit of this position. I've got this one in the bag!!!!
