    you have enough time in the 220yd to get shin splints?
    Yeah lol... thats what happens when you haven't run in ages. Takes me a long time to warm up and push through it. Been on the treadmill past 3 days doing sprints and jogging.

    Hahahaha I feel the same except my company is about to do layoffs and I'm taking more half a cut in pay but it will pay off all in the end. It's well worth the sacrifice.

      i think thats why i failed

      • All this talk of the VBT/SI/poly likely does little good and probably more harm than anything else.
        If you ask me, there are three main groups who fail things processes such as the VBT, the SI and the poly.

        One, there are those the process was designed to cull out...and that's a good thing they fail. Trust me, you don't want those people getting the job as they most assuredly will cause a problem for the agency/themselves at some point.
        Two, there are the people who feel the need to 'study' for the processes and therefore they run to the internet, grab advice,(half-assed or not) and attempt to influence the outcome of either process by modifying their responses to the testing based on whatever they 'learned studying' on-line or elsewhere. These people are probably the largest group.
        Three, there are the extremely religious/moral people. They fail because they're most or less programed to second-guess and question the ethics of even the most basic of choices.

        Those who end up in group two really have no one to blame but themselves. The SI, VBT and to a lesser extent the poly are designed to gauge cold, spontaneous, unrehearsed reactions to the questions asked. Screw with all that and it throws off the test...usually to the misfortune of the person being tested. That's one of the main reasons why they required confidentiality agreements and NDA's. Sometimes people need to be protected from themselves.

                  I make just over minimum wage, so that will also be a plus.

                      Yes, you can get care packages. Why would they go through your stuff, it's not prison?

                        I hope so because I tried looking for a gym in the general area and came up short except for a run down mom and pop operation.

                          I know so did I. I can't believe that 24 hour fitness doesn't have a gym out there... They do have a crossfit gym though...

                            yah just found that, looks like a nice one too.. I worked out at a beater CF gym for awhile, this one looks pretty good.. I'm actually surprised something that nice exists in the area.. FYI, theres a Walmart in El Centro

                              If someone was to 'go through your stuff' that was sent to FLETC, what could I expect them to find? Are you expecting to receive packages that are somehow objectionable while in training?

                              If you are, it's probably best not to have them brought on base...sent to you or otherwise.

                                Didn't know if they treated like it was prison, hence I was asking lol.

                                Nope nothing questionable at all. My fiance was wondering because she wanted to send me some snacks and mail during my stay there that was all.
