  • I cannot stress this enough. If you cannot handle being yelled at or being told what to do and when. Rethink your decision. Academy is not for the weak, but IS worth it. Stick through the 8 weeks and you’re golden.

    • Basically what they said.. it doesn’t matter how good you do things there will be people who don’t care or don’t listen well enough and you will get punished. You will duck walk/bear crawl in the hall ways. Days are long to you will be getting up around four and going till 6-9 at night.

      • This forum tells everyone what goes on. Stop being lil cry babies. LIke my DI told us if you can't do what's ask get the **** out. He has walmart applications if you want them. This is not summer school. You will he treated like inmates. You will be told what to do and when to do it. This is a paramilitary academy take it seriously. First 6 weeks were the hardest. Just do what they want. Stay motivated. Attemp to do the PT. Ask questions. Stay alert. Worry about yourself.

        • The worst is waiting for Academy phone call, not knowing one thing or the other.

            Number of reasons. Top ones are failed the test. The classes are way longer and boring compared to how I was in the academy. Couldn't handle being yelled at by the DIs and getting up early as hell for PT. 1st week of academy you have alot to remember during classes and then information you have to fill out for personal. After that that Friday you already have a test you need to pass. So there is alot to take. Also, family issues, roommate issues and traveling issues. Good luck don't give up. Don't let Captain America and The Terminator make you quit

            Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and advice. We all really appreciate it!

            I hope I can handle this, but I've been through an academy before so this'll just be a more intense version of that. I think I'm tough enough to handle it.

            Once again thank you for your posts.

              The Academy is simple. Follow orders. Practice your marching. Left face, right face, about face. Make sure your boots are shined enough you can see your reflection. Use Kiwi high gloss shine. Don't use that liquid shoe shine. They will know and you will be smoked for it. Motivate eachother. Help eachother and during PT worry about yourself. You will be fine. Also invest in Rockstar energy drinks. You will need it. Also keep the rooms clean. Those dorms are just the beginning to what comes after the academy. Make sure everyone cleans up.

          • Anyone Got recommendations for BOOTS we should wear to the academy ? Which boots are recommended

              These are the ones. Still need to shine but saves a hell of alot of time for you to study.

                • For my people that’s been to the academy .

                  what are ways they can fail you/ the reason why most people fail ?

                  also do they fail you if you can’t do so many push ups I’ve always sucked at push ups so I’m kinda scared of failing

                    Test every Friday you can only fail twice however the test are pretty easy just pay attention they basically give you all the answers. You have to qualify with the Glock, if you never shot don’t stress they will work with you you just have to do what they say, you also have to past the ppt(obstacle course similar to the physical test you do at the interview) you will take a trial run in week 2 if you struggle with it they you help you every Monday evening to get where you need to be. Don’t stress about push-ups we do them during pt but as long as your are really trying they’ll leave you alone for the most part

                • When are you starting the Academy. ?They are not going fail bc you can’t do push-up, only if you fail the test and range

                    I’m graduating the week you start if you get a chance talk to recruits from either class and you’ll get lots of tips. First few weeks will be tough especially if you get Howe or Updike for DI, they are tough but they are good people just gotta push yourself and try your best
