      • I asked my BI about the next academy, and he didn't seem to have any specific knowledge..just the typical "depending on the legislature," type answer...He did, however, note the tight deadline they are under to finish them

                  Too bad your instructor isn't a retired NYSP LT or other middle management... Maybe he would give you credit for the course for making it to graduation

                    Depending on your list number, you should start making inquiries about whatever classes you are presently enrolled in this semester.
                    Many times a one on one with the Instructor and you explaining your job situation will lead to an arrangement between the two of you for something like a special paper instead of a final, a final on a weekend, or a delayed final (incomplete grade) till you can get down there again.
                    Naturally going to the current classes and participating will let the Instructor know who you are and that you are a 'serious' student.
                    The more 'sucking up' now the better your options later...

                        Very sound advice. I have been in a similar situation several times. I've found that if you discuss these issues early on on the semester, the instructor will be more apt to work with you.

                        My employer once scheduled me for an overseas trip several months in advance. When I got my class schedule, I found that I was scheduled to depart approximately one week prior to the final exam. I approached the instructor at the end of the first night and explained the situation to me. He thanked me, made note of it, and instructed me to remind him again a couple weeks before I was to depart. He allowed me to test out of the class two weeks early.

                        This isn't always the case. But it's MUCH better to be up front with the instructor and plea your case in the beginning then it is to come down to the wire and say "Oh by the way..."

                        • if they are planning on having a late november class, how should we expect notification to come (mail, phone, email) and when should we expect this notification assuming background and polygraph are all done by oct 10(friday)...any ideas?

                          • I've yet to take my polygraph..I just had my oral psych on Saturday...My BI didn't have a date set for it, but said it would likely be within the week

                            • Could we please fast forward a month or so....I hate the waiting game! Being prior service should have prepared me for this ha ha.

                              • I see that everyone is saying the end of November. I was informed today that it is the first week of November. Any confirmation? or was i misinformed?
