      If and only if you got an invite and you are sure it is for you. Not just the academy but the job itself.

      It is a commitment, the academy is just the start. A lot of guys drop out the first few weeks who probably shouldnt have ever accepted, some of which dont have jobs to go back to. Before taking a spot from someone else, make sure it is something you really want to do and are ready for. If it is not, drop the first week so they can fill your spot at least

    • Sorry I guess my question is if the academy is definite and would not get canceled due to budget issues. Thanks for your responses

            I'm 156xx and no call for a backfill..

        • I graduated a couple of classes ago and even with extra weeks that were added on at the end there was no swimming familiaration. We just did some extra active shooter and other scenarios. Congrats to the guys getting the acceptance letter. It will be a miserable 29’weeks but it is all worth it. Push ups, sit ups, run and burpees, that is all you need to do. Also does not hurt to do other exercises such as flutters kicks and jumping jacks ( you will be surprised how difficult they become after doing them for ten minutes straight). Don’t be that guy who shows up and does 12 sit ups (someone from the 205th did that) on the first fitness test, instructors will make you life at the academy a living Hell and will not be fun. Good luck to you guys. If you have any questions post them I will try and help but not reveal to much as that will take the fun out of the academy.

          • Graduated not too long ago and going off of losingle08, being in shape will make your experience at the academy much more tolerable. Additionally it may be beneficial to adjust your sleep schedule to get in sync with proper academy hours for those of you who routinely to sleeping in.

                Personally I was up at 4:45 and didn’t lay down in “bed” until 10:45.

                Eventually you'll learn to fall asleep exactly at 10:01pm.

            • Is there any chance the state pulls the academy last minute and cancels it? Cause the phone call went into the bosses. Gave my two weeks lol.

                They better not cancel this class smh idk how that’s even a possibility at this point.

            • If I remember correctly, I usually got up st 4:50am took a quick wake up shower and got ready For PT. Have to remember if your class is a big one you got 8 to a quad and only two sinks to shave and brush your teeth. But I think PT usually started around 5:40 ish.
