  • Keep it up

    Michael Jordan used to lift weights the morning of an NBA game, Larry Bird would run a few miles in 'dagarden the day of a night game.
    But they were professionals and in perfect shape...

    Stretch, warm up, and jog till you get a light sweat, warm down, stretch, Thurs AND Fri.
    Go to bed early on Thursday, you probably will be too keyed up to get 8 on Fri nite.

          My guess would be, get a hair cut. I'm not an expert on what the NYSP expects an applicant to look like, but I've seen people get blasted for poor grooming when I've processed with another state LE agency.

            Think of it in this perspective...would you show up to an interview without getting a haircut? I always treat each step of the hiring process as an interview. It doesn't matter which agency you're processing with. Treat each step (PAT, Psych, Poly, ETC.) as if you're going to be interviewed. At least that's my personal philosophy.

              I appreciate the other comments, and it can never hurt to look your best, but this isn't a critical matter. Some people look juts fine with hair that long. It looks sloppy on me, however.

              I wouldn't give it too much thought.

                Depends on where you are. In some places, they have no applicants for the BCI. In other places, they have lots of them. Eithe way, they are hand-picked from among the troopers seeking the position. There is no test for it.

                It's completely different job from patrol. Frankly, it's never appealed to me.

                  • It's almost here... PAT weekend! Just wanted to say Good Luck to all of those who were invited for the PAT/Processing this weekend. Arrive early... (I would personally arrive 45 mins to 1 hour early at minimum).

                            • I've just had the hardest week of my life ever...hopefully I trained enough up until now because I haven't had the focus now...that's for sure.

                              Good luck to the rest and god willing I've done enough to do what I need to do.

                              • For those of us not taking the PT test yet, here is the link to the DEA's 8 week training booklet on how to prepare for their PT test. Most of it is pretty simple, but can it could give one a routine to follow.
