    What?
    We don't use emoticons [emoji22] or acronyms like LMFAO in essays anymore?
    I remember my first essay for a local PD after getting out of the NAV. I was 2 paragraphs in when I realized I was writing in blocked letters (all caps) lol.
    O well, I'm here with the Feds now.

      They said that the essay is graded by English teachers and I also agree with the post ^ that most do not write well these days due to modern technology.

        If it's hand written I may fail, I still write in block lettering. I was in engineering before law enforcement and haven't broken the habit yet. However, I rarely hand write anything, most everything I do is typed.

          • After reviewing the math portion of the study guide, I have concluded there is zero chance I will pass. I hate math....

            I have never been part way through a case and looked up and said "It's been 2.3 hours and I have completed 4/9 of this investigation...yadda yadda yadda"

                • For those that received an email, what was the name of the sender? I hope I didn't miss it if it went into my junk folder.

                        • I received my email on the 11th also. Scheduled my test for Sat., Apr. 9th. Good luck to everyone testing this round.

                              • Tested today. Felt good about everything but the math. Which is odd because I was an engineer before a cop so I used to be good with math. I actually ran out of time before I finished the last two questions. Are all sections weighted equally? Can I fail the math and pass the rest? Hopefully I did well enough on the rest to make up for it.
