    There is no minimums for push-ups. Having said that, any instructor I know of will have people out there pushing themselves towards their limit, whatever that happens to be.

    Don't expect to be doing 5 push-ups when one can easily do 50...and if one was foolish enough to try and get away with something like that, I imagine it would not bode well for that person.

    Seriously, if all a person could do was 5 push-ups...I'd expect them to injure themselves during the program and get themselves removed.

      You have tentatively met the pre-employment requirements and your file is being reviewed. Once a final determination is made that all requirements have been met, you will be notified of the next steps.

      Anyone else get this message?
      Good deal!! Hopefully my BI was right behind yours, I met with my Investigtor in late Oct. Maybe my file was on the same pile of papers as yours and cass just didnt update for me. I might be seeing you up at PH soon also. Crossing my Fingers

                Yeah, be on the lookout for checkmarks! A guy i know who is hoping for Michigan emailed me yesterday that his BI was checked off yesterday. He also met his BI in October. Thats what prompted me to check my cass this morning and i didnt have the checks anymore but i had the "requirements met" as of 2/25/09 screen. I wish the phone line was operational, because i'd like to hear what it has to say. Maybe they are pushing through some more Michiganders.

                            Is that the result of eating buffalo wings in the pool with your beer?

                                Well i was taking a walk down memory lane and found a post of mine on page 13 of this thread from 4-5-07 that read:

                                "Well guys, my background cleared on tuesday and got a job offer and accepted today! Academy start may 24th but i start reporting to my duty station april 30th. Good luck to you all!"

                                Haha, it's been a long time since i got my last call!
