  • Has anyone heard when medical letters are estimated to come out? Any good rumors? I tried to read through and figure out estimates on timelines for past classes - and my best guess was sometime between mid-December and mid-January. Any other thoughts?

      Assuming that I pass my BI, I expect that the final medical would be on the 1st week of January. Good luck to all.

      • The medical is usually 1 month before the academy starts right? So based on the date of the medical, we can safely assume it is a month away.

          That's what I was thinking - but then member hiring said maybe a March Academy - which messes up that estimate / calculation...

          • I have a question for those who have gone through the academy. How difficult are the classes at the academy? Do people tend to struggle with the academics? This is what I am most nervous about. Thank you!

              True. I guess we should be safe and prepare for it to be a week after the current one graduates.

                Thats cool. I used to go out to Somerset County a lot. And yes I hope that it is definitely sometime in the later part of the year. For now we will have to keep our fingers crossed that our rank numbers will come up for processing then.

                    Yes, the academics are challenging. Prepare to study as hard as you've ever studied. There is a ton of material covered in the 4 module exams. Every class there are a handful of people that are dismissed due to not meeting academic standards. It's doable, but expect to study constantly.

                    Also they currently give Troop preference based on your exam average. So there's significant competition to do well or get sent to the boonies.

                      Thanks a lot for your response. I am currently a senior in college, and have above a 3.0 GPA. Do you think I should be OK? Or is it totally different from college? I guess what I'm asking is -- Do they set you up to pass, so that the people who just don't try or study end up failing, or is it set up in a way that makes it difficult to do well?

                      Also, wow-- that is definitely an incentive to do well.

                      Thanks again for your help.

                        If you put effort into it, you will pass. Don't be afraid to get help from others. A few that I know failed out thought they could do it themselves. Everybody is in it together to help you pass the exams... even the ATOs. They give you mandatory quiet study time so take advantage of it. Again, it's not easy but if you put in the time and effort you should have no problem.

                        • Does anybody know when Backgrounds should be complete. I passed my Poly almost 3 weeks ago and my references and current/past employers have yet to be contacted. Thank you for any input.

                          • I was told by my BI they are being turned in this week. But if medical letters are coming out in Dec you still have plenty of time. All my contacts were done in like a 2 or 3 day time frame. It was suprising - super quick. You still have plenty of time!

                              Ok great. That puts my mind a little more at ease. Thank you!
