    Had my Medical today...Read what RyBaK477 wrote everything happened the way he wrote it.

    Know the first and last day of your period. The nurse wanted the last day and the doctor asked me the first day! You will have to undress from the waist up when they conduct the EKG test and when you have your Chest X-Ray.

    Note: If you are Black you will have to give 4 viles of blood rather than 3.

    NOTE: THE NURSE ASKED ME IF I DRANK WATER AND I SAID YES. I HAD A LITTLE AND WAS JUST SIPPING IT. WHEN YOU ARE DEHYDRATED YOUR VIENS ARE HARD TO FIND. SO WHEN IT COMES TO DRAW YOUR BLOOD HE TAKES FOREVER FOR THEM TO FIND A VIEN. HE TRIED IN MY RIGHT ARM AND HAD TO MOVE TO MY LEFT. IF THAT DIDN'T WORK HE WAS TAKING IT FROM THE TOP OF MY HAND!!! HE TOLD ME THAT YOU SHOULD DRINK BEFORE GOING TO TAKE YOUR MEDICAL.

    All in all it was the same test whether you are male or female....

    My appt was at 10:30am got there at 10:00am walked out of there at 12:30pm.

    Hey Spooky...Take a hike Mr. I am not o these threads to be harassed. I am simply putting out information for the people that have not yet taken their medical. I can really care less about my hang ups, they will all get worked out.

    AND DON'T CALL ME STUPID YOU JACK A DOUBLE S HOLE.

    Fasting

    If your doctor orders a fasting blood test, you should not have anything to eat or drink for 8 to 12 hours before you go to the laboratory to have your blood taken. Some examples of fasting blood tests are fasting glucose, fasting triglycerides, fasting lipids and glucose tolerance.

    Feb. 06, Took Written exam on computer

    Dec. 06, Took Initial POWER Test

    Dec. 06, Took College transcripts in, drug test (got sent home to get a letter from school with dates my credits were applied because they weren't on transcripts. Must be applied before Jan. 06.

    Sept. 07 Took Drug test and misc. paperwork

    Oct. 07 Written Psych

    Oct. 07. Oral Psych

    Oct. 07 Medical Exam

    1st week of Oct. My BI called me, said he would be starting my invt. in 3-4 months.

    So Approx. in Jan, my BI will call me, hopefully all cleared by end of Jan and in academy between Jan and March.

    This process works differently for EVERYBODY, but everyone has to do the same thing, no matter what. Everyone gets a hang up somewhere i the process and it sets you back, that is why it takes so long to get into academy. Something needs to be corrected at some point and it takes a long wait to get back into the testing swing of things.

    BE PATIENT.......THAT IS ALL WE CAN DO, HURRY UP AND WAIT! Good luck to all! Most of your questions could be answered if you just read the threads in the Illinois section. READ READ READ....You need to have common sense and find answers on your own and be independent to be a cop. If you can't find a simple answer in these threads and can't seem to understand such a small task, then you probally will not be a police officer. People keep asking questions over and over again yet there are threads dedicated strictly to what people ask and many of these questions are really obvious. DO YOUR OWN INVESTIGATION, READ THE THREADS AND FIGURE IT OUT BEFORE YOU POST STUPID QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ANSWERED OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

    Good luck to all!
    Sorry,

    Had to call ya on it. I find it funny that you say this and you didn't drink any water for 8 hours before the medical. They said do not EAT, water is not food. I had some people do this when I was attending and the nurse looked at me and goes did you drink water? I said " of course do I look like a jackenapes" she kind of half smiled because i'm sure she had no clue what that meant, but I digress. Water is fluid not food. If it had said "Do not consume food or fluids for the next 8 hours" I could see your frustration.

    It seems that CPD/Powers that be schedule your medical exams before you take the written psych. Once you finish the written you are signed up for the oral psych. First done with the written first served.

    You do take the written psych before you take your medical and oral psych.
    Remember there are two psych exams....Written and Oral.

    Just mentioned this in another blog...you can actually have your BI working on your stuff THEN get the failed psych letter. Sounds like a waste of time, but it happens. I know from personal experience.

    I got a call saying I have to go on my own to get another urine test becasue I had a minor urine infection/dehydrated. WELL DUH....I was not allowed to drink anything for 8 hours prior and my medical was at 1 pm, of course I was slightly dehydrated.

    Anyhoo.. I am getting my urine tested at my doctor this Sat. and I have to have the labs sent to the medical place and a letter stating I am fit for duty.

    So if this info is useful to anyone...take it.

    Everything else was good to go! Still waiting to hear about the psych results. Had the oral on 10/22.
