  1. That's good to know. I thought we were going to stay down there for a month or so in a classroom setting type of thing. Yea, Jamaica/Corona Yard are definitely the closest to me.
  2. So I am looking through the older posts about the training schedule. Will it start at 7AM weekdays down at PS 248? Coming from Queens, the subway schedule is not going to be fun to handle that early in the morning even if I am willing to wake up at 4AM. Makes me wonder if I should do a 6 month lease somewhere close in Brooklyn. Or if I lease a car, is there decent parking nearby?
  3. About six months which likely means I'll finish in March. Just in time for my birthday. Edit: Oh and I know not necessarily everyone knows this forum, but not a peep of people going into medical for August or beyond since Harlem and I sworn in... I will certainly consider myself lucky.
  4. Seems they could use the extra cab cars for the Flushing garbage train. ..
  5. Vargas. She said if I couldn't be in the August class, that there wasn't another to put me in past that. Congratulations! See you in August. I was surprised that they checked my BP again. I forgot to take my meds for hypertension on top of that, but a doctor put me in a room for a half an hour to rest and I passed on the second try. She tried to calm me down, closed my eyes, and I had myself thinking I was in a tropical rainforest with a waterfall nearby. lol In the end, the other doctor checking my sleep test results said I barely had signs of sleep apnea and had me out the door with the clearance paper in a jiffy. Only thing I got to do is go to a clinic every six months to check my BP.
  6. Ok, I'm still waiting to be fingerprinted, but I passed my medical and have been sworn in for the 8/19 class!I I've been told there is no class past August so any idea in my head to defer and take a vacation was out the window.
  7. I finally got my test results back and going to head back to 180 L in the morning. But just out of curiosity, how late does the MTA HR stay open? Just wondering if I could've just went back right now. I hope there's still spots in the August class...
  8. As someone on medical hold, I hope you are wrong. lol I think couple people here mentioned they were called in for 2nd PE in their 15-1600's.
  9. I did it voluntarily because I thought I was going to be put on hold anyway. Joke's on me on that. Does the memo say where to buy them or it is just generic clothing and boots?
  10. Yea, the doctor says they consider many factors put together to consider whether you're a risk for sleep apnea. It's not just the one thing like your neck size.
  11. Came back from medical. Turns out, I would've been sworn in today if I hadn't done the sleep test. Now MTA wants the results which I'll hopefully have by the end of the week. I believe I read a couple posts here stating they have medical next week so I'm not too worried...
  12. Good to know and thank goodness, I found it again. That is one burden off of my shoulder. Also I forgot to ask, does anyone know if you've already been fingerprinted by the NY Department of State whether the MTA still want to fingerprint again? Mine is already registered when I did my security license.
  13. Anyone know if they'll let me defer the day of my medical (tomorrow)? I can't seem to find my Social Security card and it looks like I may have to get a replacement. On another note, do they check your documents if you're on medical hold? I'll probably be put on hold for my 18" neck anyway
  14. Yea, my doctor called me back that they have one ready for me to pick up tomorrow. I'll probably still be on hold as I complete the test, but hopefully I'll have the documentation to be taken off it before the end of next week.
  15. Damn, I may be put on medical hold. I have an 18" neck and my pulmonologist is taking too long to assign me a sleeping test device (all loaned out to other patients). I am going to assume I'm going to get one from the MTA doctor anyway at this rate. Hopefully, I'm only on hold for a week or two...
