  • Troop K guys and gals haven't heard anything either. NYC guys got info regarding the orientation for April 24th

    Comment


    • The orientation is just to tell you basics like that the Academy is residential and it's not easy etc etc. The recruiter will do some Q & A. Nothing earth shattering.

          • The packet doesn't specify whether or not we should bring shaving supplies. Will it be provided at the academy? What should we bring besides what the packet says? It just says bring "personal incidentals"...

              Bring what you need to maintain the grooming standard on a daily basis obviously. I'd suggest bringing a buzzer too in case you or your buddies foolishly show up with longer hair.

              • Spoke with member hiring on the phone- I wasn’t sure if we check in on Sunday if we have to leave and return the next morning (they didn’t specify in the packet only gave us times). They confirmed we are staying there overnight and locked in until Friday. They also didn’t specify what we should be putting our belongings in? Is everyone just bringing a large duffle bag and a small bag for bathroom stuff?

                Ps. Did anyone get a email invite for orientation in troop E?

                  I'm going with a logo free black dufflebag with only handles, no shoulder strap.

                Good thinking. But what about the white shirts? They are probably going to get wrinkled... I'm not sure if bringing them in hangers is a good idea.

                • Pack everything in your duffel bag. Do not try and carry an extra suit or extra white shirts in your hand ( it will attract The ATO’s attention which you do not want right when you get there). Get a small bathroom bag to put your personal grooming materials in. I do not ever remember taking my suit jacket off so if your shirt is a little wrinkled it more and likely will not be seen (you can also bring an iron which someone from the quad usually did). Also remember try to carry your duffel bag in your non shooting hand before going to the academy. If you have trouble carrying it you might want to pack lighter. I do not know if they put this in the packet but I would also get a small mesh laundry bag for your dirty laundry. I often kept it in my duffle bag that you place under the bed or in under the sink in the bathroom.

                  • Soooo about getting a hair cut, do we need to just buzz off all our hair or high and tight cut. With a 0 on the sides and a 1” ontop?

                    Comment


                    • Either should be good. I went with high and tight and never got called out for it.

                        Should we bring two suits?

                        No need for two suits. I got away with just one. An extra pair of pants would not hurt just In case if you are getting smoked and rip them.

                    • Received an email from recruiting yesterday. The test scores for the 2017 exam should be in by May 17th.

                        I would just do a 1 or 2 around your whole head. A) it keeps you under the radar and no ATO will bother you about your haircut. B) You can easily cut it yourself over the weekends so you won't have to take time away from your family at the barber getting some kind of sick fade.

                          I invested in some cheap clippers and just buzzed my head every sunday with a 1 or a 0. Save money and time.

                      • https://www.batesfootwear.com/US/en/...rd/20094M.html. Would this be acceptable?

                          Just put a shine on them.

                      • From all the bate oxfords I tried on these are the most confortable.
