@ Angel.. yes.. and like i said he mentioned an end of summer class.. i was goin to take the written test May 22.. he highly suggested i dont wait that long because it does take a while to get back one on one results.. i was avoiding the 8 hour round trip drive in the same week.. so i took the written that same weekend.. and i was in bed all saturday nite and sunday from that ride.. i was not feeling it at all..

Well guys, i will be going for my physical and investigator assignment next tuesday. I do medical transports from hospitals to state corrections all the time and the CO's told me NY state is holding regular academy classes now. That was recent as of last week he told me so things should be moving more regularly now.

DO you think its ok to call your investigator and ask them your status ? Or should i just sit back and wait for the call to come.

@ cgaz
If u wanna call u can... thats what there there for, Im sure people call them all the time. If it'll make u sleep better at night, give it a shot. Good luck, let me know how it goes..

concerning calling your investigator.
that has no help to get you to the top of the list.
when i got the call from my investigator back in febuary to make sure my info was up to date, i asked her what determines who gets called or not and she said she has no idea who's going to be selected. she said all she does is she recieves a list with the names on it and she has to start calling them to see if they are still interested. selection comes from the higher up staff. the only thing that they can tell you is if they are selecting from the test list that you are on and if they have started selecting people from the score bracket that you got on the exam. luckily my name was drawn 2 weeks ago and i start the academy this sunday.

Wondering in Fredonia, New York said: My husband took the test over two years ago, got his canvas letter back in February I think, went to Albany this week for testing, and is going back to Albany May 22 for his Psych eval. After all this, when is the soonest we can expect him to get into the academy? Is there any rhyme or reason for all this or is it all luck? because it seems like many people wait years and some don't wait long at all.

hey...i was there with him on the 22nd lol from derby...should set up a fb page for carpooling...lol...I do june 3rd to roch for the 1on1 psych eval..should go quick to the academy from what i was told thee are a lot of retirees this year...good luck!!!!

@Cgaz

Yea Ive been told the same. I think we took our tests a whole year apart... its funny how were moving at the same pace. The only difference is I took the Spanish Language exam. Mine was October 2008. Yours was in 2007 right? Idk about you but Im real anxious to hopefully get that call...lol

@ Ange921

Yeah i heard they are trying to push like 12 classes though , but thats just word of mouth and im super anxious i just dont want to relay on the call if it comes it comes . Like the psych doctor said just go on living your everyday life . Its cool when you can talk to someone going though the same thing you .

PS...im sure I wont be in this situation 3 years from now... the only reason people have waited so long is b/c of that hiring freeze...stuff is moving now

angel - I took the medical / agility on March 16, 2010, then the written psych on April 10, 2010. I met the psychologist on May 8,2010. The psychologist said that if I didn't hear in 1 to 2 months, call my investigator. And like I said, I haven't heard anything, which I hope is a good thing.

Now, like everyone else, I'm anxious and this job would do wonders for us financially, etc. Not "making" it, would be a major let down. I felt really good when I met the psych, we laughed a little bit, and he seemed very nice....

P.S. You guys crack me up with some of your posts. I pray we all make it and meet. I'd be like a dysfunctional family reunion...LOL.
