  • January Class & Dilemma

    I am currently in the process of re-opening my case (my exam expires this coming January). I am scheduled to take my medical exam this coming week but I have a slight dilemma.

    My wife and I are expecting our first child this coming Spring; April to be exact. My question is how probable would it be that I would be allowed to take off the day from the academy, if selected of course, to see the birth of my son/daughter?

    They are strict but they are not unreasonable.

    A guy in my company had his first son while in the academy, he was able to take a couple days for it.

      Huge sigh of relief! Thank you for the info.

      If I get selected hopefully the instructors will also be as reasonable.

        It has nothing to do with the instructors, If it is the birth of you child you will get the day off, that is not a problem.
        They are strict with the days off to stop recruits from taking to many days off and falling behind, if it is really important (important as a general definition-not what the recruit thinks is important), you will get the day off. They want to keep the days off to a minimum to avoid someone falling too far behind.

          So I guess its safe to say we can erase the Dilemma part of this thread.

              Of course the city of New York will now own your child.
