    NYPD exam 3319 expected wait?

    Hello everyone. I took the NYPD exam 3319 back in June 2013. I got a 76 which is low and I'm kind of nervous. I'm hoping I'll still be able to get hired within a few years. I still don't have a list number, but considering I scored lowly I would presume I will be roughly 4xxx I am currently 19 years old and in college. I want to finish my bachelors within 3.5 years as opposed to 4, hoping that I will get the call when I am 21/22. Although I did score lowly on the test, do you think at this rate I'll be following through with the process by 2016? If all goes as planned and I finish my bachelors by December of 2015 it would be ideal to go into the January 16 or July 16 academy class. What do you guys think? Do you think I'll even get the call, and should I take the test again? Thanks!

    Awesome advice nym01827, thanks for taking the time to answer my post. I definitely do plan on finishing school. I wanted to finish a semester early in case I did get called, just to play it safe. I think you're right though because I am at the bottom of 3319's list. I just received my list # 11xx out of 1179 eligible, so I'm all the way at the bottom. My friend, who is now a cop out where I live in Nassau County, NY was telling me I should be fine. He said he scored a 96 on the NYPD exam and his list # was even higher, so I guess not as many people take the test? I believe he took the exam in 06 or 04. Do you think I should re-take it? I do know of another person who scored around where I did and he said he was going through the process and his exam expired. I believe he took it in 08 or 09, so the economy could have been the reason why he didn't get hired. It's back and forth though. People tell me I'll get called and then others say my score is pretty low and with a high list # like that you may not get called in time. I guess I'll re-take the exam and hopefully I'll do better. Other than that there's really nothing I can do besides stay in school and out of trouble.

    I got my list number last month. Does a low list number speed up the process?

    I dont think it speeds up. Based on what many people are saying here, if 500 passed and they need 100 at the time, they take 100 and the rest 400 wait for their time.

The numbers at the top of the list will come first. So it is possible part of our exam # goes into one academy as the last numbers put on, and then the rest get put in the following academy.
    Hey Nym01827 are you with us on 3319 and are you in low or high list number? I read your post that you want to go for master's degree, anything else you're doing to prepare yourself?

    My list number on exam 3319 is 1xx. I'm wondering, when we'll get an investigator?

    Nym01827 a good plan there, having a backup job is great. I think nypd should work out for you.

    So the next step is receiving a letter in the mail for the Application Processing Documents? APD looks like a very detailed procedure, collecting all of the documents, etc. I heard they are processing candidates in 1300s pool now.

    Another 3319 guy here. Just signed up, good luck to everyone out there. Just a quick questions does the NYPD accept FEMA credits toward the 60 requirement? I'm a little short and I work full time for DSNY, and out schedule is given to us daily so it's really hard to go back to school, I scored well on this test (even though I hear it doesn't much matter as far as the waiting game goes) and I just want to be prepared when the call does come. For Dsny my list number was 299x and I waited 6 years, on Nypd my list number is 1x , and I'm being told that still going to be another 2-3 years or more due to earlier exams. I have time but still would like to take care of the credits sooner than later.
