      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.

        • Not to make you nervous but anything can happen. My class was supposed to start in the fall of 2015, did the medical and everything in September with anticipation starting in October to find out it got postponed due to budget issues. I Was waiting for a yellow envelope and only got email saying the class got cancelled. I don’t know if they have ever sent out invites then Cancelled it, maybe one of the more seasoned members can answer that.

          • Anything can happen. I have seen classes delayed due to budget cuts and cancelled altogether as it did in 2008. Some people waited for over 5 years to get on the job... Good luck to those that got the invitation. Be prepared to be mentally and physically tested. The worst thing you can do is enter physically unprepared and then about a month later say it isn't for you. That way you take away a spot for someone who is ready, willing and able. It is a life changing career choice so make sure it is one you are willing to make. That being said, if you stick it out for the right reasons, it is going to be worth it in the end.

              I already mailed back my letter of intent saying I accept I just hope I didn't give my two weeks notice too early lol.

          • Once you get the offer of employment it's pretty much a sure thing imho. I mean they intend for you to quit your job when they send it out.

              • They sure dropped the ball with the October processing weekend. It was 16k-19.5k I think? Looks like nobody from the group is even on backfill?

                  I processed in May ranked 156xx and I didnt get a backfill call. So no I don't think they even reached any from November processing.

                  You mean the November one? I was part of that and haven't heard anything back. No DQ but no medical invite. Guess I'm on the backfill of the backfill? At least? Haha.
