      i never attended mentor program and did fine, graduated the academy

      One guy from my class attended mentor program and he tapped out

        Question, what was the average length of runs you guys did in the academy? I'm runnng 3x a week, 3 miles each run (usually about 30 min). Just wondering if I need to up this amount. Thanks.

    • What's up fellas. Did the the written and PAT in February, submitted my background packet (online) around 03/12, and currently have my interview with my BI next week.

      Looking forward to the process, however long it might take. Best of luck to everyone here.

        I’m around the same part of the process as you currently. Submitted background packet in March with a interview scheduled in April. How’s your strength training look like currently ?

        Sorry, just saw your comment. I've been running 3x a week, trying for at least 3mi each time and trying to keep a 10min/mile pace. Also hitting the gym maybe once or twice a week. Then at home and sometimes work, lots of pushups, burpees, etc to get my endurance up.

    • Just got word that my bi is scheduling for psych today guys!
      I might be seeing you in 208

        Wow you're moving fast. 95% of the MP haven't been scheduled. And congrats.

          Have you any tips on training? Not sure my background, psych, medical, and poly will be done by July, but I'm still training like it is.

          I'm running 3x a week, 30min each time (usually about 3mi), and 2x a week I'm working on pushups/situps, burpees, flutter kicks, leg raises, etc. Just wonder what others are doing to prepare for the academy.

            So far our workouts have been more of cross fit. Keep doing what you're doing and add pull ups to it. And if you want, go weight train too.

            Cool, good to know. Any specific crossfit exercises, or is it better suggested to mix it up? I saw tire flipping and chain pulling in the mentor videos. Wish I had somewhere local I could do that.

            Noted on the pull ups, though. Not sure how many I could pump out right now.

            Do pretty much endurance and strength. The other day we ran 2.5 mi and that was the warm up to the workout. Pull up is more for academy they told us you do alot of them.

            Good to know. Thanks for the tips. I'll keep on my 3mi per run, and try to bring down my times. Right now I'm hovering around 10min / mile average. I'll also pickup a pull up bar for home so I can try those too.

        • Just got scheduled for the psych yesterday. Hopefully the process starts moving along for you guys too.

            • Had my BI interview today, went well. Have my poly scheduled for next week, then my BI said he will be starting my references / full background.

              If all goes well with the poly, about how long until you guys heard back about the psych/medical?

                It really depends some of us have been here a while and still no psych date.

                        Thank you. You're almost there as well. Yes, after you're done with your written, they schedule you for your interview before you leave. If your psych is good you will be scheduled for your medical shortly after.

                        Just a couple of days. Once you pass you get scheduled for your medical.

                        Ah ok, I had my psych interview on Monday and I havent heard anything yet.

                    • Anyone previously have success with the appeal process?

                        I've only appealed when I was DQd from LAPD. Long story short, the appeal was denied after a year of waiting.

                    • Got my polygraph coming up. Paperwork I have says business casual, everything I read online says suit and tie to all appointments/interviews except for PT related stuff.

                      Did you guys go bsuiness casual or stick with the full suit still?

                        I went in a suit for everything else but the medical.
