    it will be interesting. Even If i don't get a call for first group, i definitely want to see whoever on here gets called first giving us good info about the hiring process, as well as wishing best luck to them. Is posting information on here while in the academy allowed?

    Another benefit is that you have more time off when you take vacation or need a day here and there. You have enough comp to use. Also, if you have enough comp time, u can retire early as well. There's people on my job that retires 6 months- 1.5 yrs early. They stay on the books until their time runs out but they are retired.
    wow retiring that much earlier ¿
    thats awsome .. Must have put that time in comp for years.. Yeah been thinking about doing that.. I get my 5 weeks vaca plus holidays ive saved to take off any time i want.. But working ot would give me that comp time but doesnt actually
    give me more take home pay...
    Unless your talking about cashing it in at a later time..

I feel u on the speaking with financial advisor and hearing him say to stay where you at. I'm en route to making about 108k by the end of the year and to go from that to 35k.. He may refer me to a life crisis counselor and have me admitted for a psych review. Lmao.

    Softball? Really.. C'mon bro, hardball is where it's at! Lol.. But softball is cute, does the uniform comes with tassel and a handbag? Lmao..

    Glad to hear junior and i aren't the only with struggles... Hehe

So moneys tight already on top of that add a pay cut, it has me worried.. I also plan on talking to a financial advisor.. Hopefully he doesn't tell me "what are you nuts stay where you're at" lol like i said before all my friends and family are in law-enforcement.. I should've done this long time ago.
    Buying a house in the inner boroughs is very very expensive. I wasn't willing to go upstate being so close to work.. How ironic i'm upstate every weekend in my family's house i also belong to a softball team upstate.. Lolol.. Im kinda hyped thinking about tbta..

I've maxed out at what i can do top pay etc. Now i'm just bored and have no love or heart for the business law enforcement has been in me for a long time. Being young at the time looking at short term instead of long term i made my choices to take that short fast money doing this kind of work because the raise was higher and faster. Not knocking the business pays the bills i'm happy with my family. This law enforcement is what i always wanted to do so i'm taking the chance to do it i work out like crazy after work. I'm tired but it means something to me.

Good luck
    Thank you for the great advice sir. I thought u was nypd for some reason. What do u do?

    As far as My gut is telling me to stay put, do another 11-14yrs(military buyback) and retire in my late 30s. But my head is telling me to go try something else.. Lol.

    We are looking at a ready to move into house. I don't want to inherit anybody problems and then try to fix it. Never been a fan of used cars because of this reason. Our condo was newly built. But I'm going to definitely try to have the seller pay for closing. I doubt ima find any newly built houses at a decent price range. I just don't wanna get myself into something and then can't afford to make payment and live comfortably at the same time because of the paycut. (Wife wants a new car because I got one, smh)

    But I'm going to definitely do a pros and cons list and compare and contrast. Thanks Alot sir.

    First in my opinion. Go with your gut. Set up pros and cons lists. They work for me. I'm not in civil service now so the perks of benefits and time served I don't have that. The work I do is good but it doesn't compare to NYC. I wanted a condo a few years back but got the house instead. Closing is expensive but if you can work that into your contract the seller pays for that.
