  • 508NAVY with all due respect I was the one who’s legs were being held so I know it better and I am no one to judge but just because of someone else I do not want to blow up the chance. Also note that I cleared my IPT with 10 seconds to spare. And have been working on my sit-ups. Thanks for the advice though. Will follow and hopefully come back on this forum with a positive reply that I did it. Cheers.

      Exactly my point. “But just because of someone else”

      This line of working isn’t about excuses. You’ll learn on the road people lie. You’ll also learn that in 21st century policing, the phrase “just because” or “someone else” isn’t getting you out of trouble, and in fact, will bet you INTO trouble because you’re not admitting fault.

      My whole point was being 12 sit-ups off is because of these reasons:

      1) YOU weren’t prepared-nutrition/sleep/alcohol/exercise
      2) you figured you passed the IPA, so you’re good for the FPA.
      3) there legitimately was a reason for you to be 33% short of the required baseline to pass.

      I’m not attacking you, I’ve been in your shoes, I know it’s demoralizing. What I want you to understand is, you must take responsibility, even if it’s petty.

      People who wear our uniform and violate integrity or LIE or don’t admit mistakes, are those who get the rest of us hurt.

      508NAVY Hey man, I'm in the military too and while I get your point of view, it's not that serious and having someone who's a twig barely holding your feet isn't helpful. While I haven't ever failed a PT lest let alone for that reason it does require more effort for SOME. Myself included. I could not do proper sit ups without someone or weights holding me down or I'm lifting my legs up off the ground. If it were that easy for all then the test wouldn't require holding. But you aren't wrong, many people do make excuses for not passing and I see a lot of applicants really not even remotely putting in any effort. I'm also big on Integrity, but at the same time there's a whole lot of CPD officers wearing the uniform lacking it for far worse reasons than lacking in PT. It just takes discipline.

  • Yeah I’m very low in my confidence because of that number “25”. Probably took a while for me to digest and was trying to find excuses. But I should be more focused on achieving those numbers within the next couple days. I guess my last chance to put everything out there to wear the uniform.

    I believe my fasting could also be a big reason but then I wonder how I managed the other portions.

    I need to be well prepared now and focus solely on that is what I managed to figure out by the end of this bizarre day.

      • Anyone else get a FPT email for April 2nd ? I received mine this morning!!!

        • Finished my Psych interview this morning, I need to get the VA to send the psychologist my award letter for my disability. I have never done this before, usually I was allowed to send the document myself for other agencies. Anyone else do this before and how long did it take for the VA to actually send this document over?

            Yea that’s what I’m thinking to. Academy is supposed to start soon and now I have to put my hope into the VA to actually do something within a week.

            As a fellow military man, use that number ZERO on the VA telephone number starting at 0830 every day to talk to someone LIVE,l. Also, email them up the back side so they’re on top of it.

            If you have access to e benefits you can download a PDF with a VA letterhead displaying your percentage. This will be much faster than waiting for VA

        • Completed final psych interview this morning. Waiting game for the NTR e-mail for March academy. Good luck to everyone, and I really do appreciate every P.O. that took time out of their busy day to reply to our questions throughout this process, you are appreciated.

          • Waiting on the official NTR, any day now. What's funny is I got an NTR by accident last week... it had the reporting details and and everything. Called my BI, said it was a clerical error and that they have only received 5% of the results and it was nothing to worry about. Did the Psych interview last Tuesday, got the email last Thursday. Hopefully it's a good sign?

            • Spoke too soon, I GOT MY NTR!!!!! IM SO EXCITEDDDD!!! Hope to see some of you soon and kick some *** (figuratively. Also, I won't be starting until the summer according to the higher-up's as I am going overseas (military related, not a deployment), but I'm just happy to hear the news. Good luck everyone!

                Klay not at all… a car note does not effect.. all they look for is for collections.. should you have collections then yes thats when you have issues getting on.

                You should be good as long as you're making the payments.

            • Good Morning All,
              I took my Poly back on March 2 and have not heard anything since. Just wondering if that’s normal or if I should start to get nervous? Thanks!
