        Good luck to you, I started out at Stateville. You will hear a million different things from a million different people but I loved the place. Learned a lot there and met a lot of good people. I wouldn't be having such a successful career in the feds if not for Stateville.

            • @hapkidoka, thank you very much!

              @missme, "outstanding ma'am!!!" Lol. Yes, there was a kid, I believe going to Hill that brought his phone into the facility during his 1st orientation day at Hill. They told him not to do it again, but sure enough, he brought it the second day and the warden escorted him out.

              @aceofspades, it's actually good. The instructors are very informative and the academy is ran quiet well. My only two complaints are the beds and the food. Other than that, it's alright.

                • I'm curious to know what is the lowest score that anyone has gotten who made it into the academy? I recieved a 69 but my friend only got a 41and I'm just wondering if I should keep encouraging him? I feel kinda bad because that score is too low in my opinion.

                    Hope he knows someone otherwise he needs to test again and try to bring his score up or put down a location that has no one on their list.... LOGAN C.C. hired a few females with scores in the 20's.... Testing for I.D.O.C is a joke.

                      How long ago was this? I've been gone since '10 but in '09 they started a min score policy which required applicants to score at least 30 something to make the eligibility list.

                      Anyway I was at STA and we were supposed to be the ones that picked from the bottom of the barrel but I never met anyone that scored under 60. I've heard stories from "back in the day" though.

                      • Half way done!!!! To you who are n the academy how does it feel to know n 3 weeks you will be done??... Any of u have range yet? This weather has been amazing these last two weeks a lot better than when I had range, the dead of winter and the coldest wind you could ever have... And if you haven't been yet good luck to u!

                        • Yeah, my entire class finished control tactics, restraints, and range. Range by far has been the best. I sort of felt control tactics should've been longer than 1 week, but it was very informal. All in all, its going good. We will be doing a shakedown at a prison this coming up week which should be an experience.
