That's why it's so cold! Hell froze over......
Just got mine. Won't be Sgt. anytime soon.
This is funny shit. last time, I didn't study. Also - on the way to the test, my ex and I were dividing up marital property, and I was still drunk while taking the test. I just missed the cut. This time, I studied my cock off and got and ranked in the 2200's.What a fucking job !
Yes they are. Got em today # 206. Hope to join ya soon.
got mine today 08feb
"Sgt results are out. If you scored 143 or higher you will be 300 spots out or closer. A score of 133 will get you around 1150 or so and a 124 will land you around 2400. This is a bullshit test. 10 points is not a lot of space but it is the difference of between 286 and 1168. A grader of the test could mess up 10 points. I'm sick of the city and its bullshit. Also you assholes that claim you made it legit. Remember "10" points is the difference of almost 800 spots. I scored in the top 150 and didn't study and shouldn't be a Sgt. But I will because of the bullshit scoring. By the way I scored a 151."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~That's not all.. These promotional exams that the city has been giving the past few years are scientifically designed so that the tests are nothing more than just a sort of “lottery”. (the tests are designed by “Jeanerette” [not sure on the spelling])If you recall the City lost a suit filed by African Americans last year in the Circuit Court in regards to the Firefighter Entrance exam. The decision by the judge was that it is a known fact African Americans do not fare as well on written exams. Therefore a more passable exam must be designed - - that is EXACTLY what this last sergeant’s and lieutenant’s tests were like. You will see enough minority candidates get though this test just because of “the luck of the draw” factor.Think about it, you ask many sharp P.O.s who have a real college degree from some big name school and have actually studied.. they may have finished 2000 on the list. Then you talk to a guy who never cracked a general order and just showed up for the hell of it… he finishes around 200. In reality, the slug who did not study only got 15 or 20 more points on the test but that’s all it takes on such a “lottery ticket” style assessment exam. BULLSHIT.Ohh, by the way, do think the new Chicago Police Department blog would print what I just said??
About 530 were made off the list for the 1998 sergeant’s exam. Add the "meritorious" people and it was OVER 700 people. A total of 4 large classes, one class made each year between 1998 and 2001. You will never see that many again. The reason so many people were made was because of the large number of people hired in the late 1960's and early 70's were retiring between 1998 and 2001. As far as the 1993 sergeant's test; about 430 were made off that test/list. They did not have the "meritorious" system for the 1993 test .. That’s when the City had to really work hard to 'fix' things.(and oohh, I don't thing I could say this on the department's new 'Checkerboard' blog either.)
Considering past Sgt.'s exams, how many sgt's would they typically make off of an exam? I ranked @ 285 out but don't want to get my hopes dashed.
Rookie with a question: Our district seems to be short sgt's. We sometimes (depending on day off group) only have 2 sgt's on 1st and 3rd watches on the street. Don't know about 2nd. Is it like this in all the districts?
I believe that if you rank in under #350, you should be in good shape. This list will be up for 3 years or so.
Whoever keeps saying this is a bullshit test, it's not fair, waaa waaa waaaa, maybe you're just a dumb shit.
I studied pretty hard and went to a few study groups which helped me! I did not have answers to the test nor do I have any juice. I was 850 out on the prior sgt test and this time i'm 45 out scoring 151.
I have called three attorney's in relation to the fairness and the scoring of this test. I do believe that there are very serious discrepancies and am seeking to remediate this through litigation. I will post further as this unfolds and would love to see a thread on this subject as i know there are others who took the test and are being screwed over. The imperative thing to do right now is to discover how many people have been slighted and to file an immediate class action lawsuit before they start a new sergeants class. This has occured before and those who filed suit won, it will take some time and a few hundred dollars a piece but is more than worth it in the long run. I called the FOP about this and they essentially stated there is nothing they can do and that they believe that the CPD testing is fair and impartial. SCS please open a thread on this subject matter and I would love to hear from current Sgt's who had to sue in order to make it legitimately. THis clout nonsense needs to stop and it won't until we standup united and litigate it, don't ever count on FOP to defend your rights either, they are an extension of City Hall.

That's 1320 sgts since the 93 list which is more sgts than we currently have........dumb fuck!!
Tue Feb 13, 02:59:00 PM OMG, You are a moron! Maybe, just maybe, some of these people retired , died or were promoted?Let me guess....you didn't do real well on the test?
BULLSHIT!! That's 1320 sgts since the 93 list which is more sgts than we currently have........dumb fuck!! That's the ranking number they went down to...give or take, Einstein
Does anyone know when they will begin a new class of sgts off the NEW list that was just released? Now, it takes a while to submit the "merit" picks and get the 90-Day D-training going, then its five more weeks in the Academy. So they have to start the process soon to see some new sgts by late summer/fall 2007. My guess is 75-100 in the first class.
opened my letter and said "sometimes you gotta say wha da f--k thanks dan lock-rd
This is the first sgts test I took. Studied my ass off and ranked in the mid 200's. I have no clout.....no kidding none. Just wanted to post since so many people use the clout excuse when they dont make it. Stop crying!!!!!
"BULLSHIT!! That's 1320 sgts since the 93 list which is more sgts than we currently have........dumb fuck!! "THIS is my competition???? Please tell me your score, please please pretty please. Then again you would probably have a difficult time working the mailbox, maybe your mommy will get it for you and explain your results.Stupid, stupid, stupid...
Heard that they plan to promote about 115 Sgts. in the near future off the new list. With dicks in training now and Lts graduating on thursday, yes it is time to begin the next sgts class. Stay tuned for the "merit" selections then the "D" training
quick question, you need 60 college credits and 6 years to make it right? not 120 credit hrs.
