    All the academies are similar to each other.
    1.you get treated like a little kid.
    2. you get yelled at
    3. you get yelled at some more
    4. you have your pt while getting yelled at
    5. you keep your mouth shut and do as you're told
    6. you have all your classes and test that you must pass.

        Also don't take it personal when you get yelled at or get in trouble.

        The way the academy is set up, there is no way you can't go 6months without getting in trouble at least once or twice.

          In NYPD, if you "get in trouble", either you lose a deportment card or get a Command Discipline.

          When you get a CD, you might have to forfeit a few hours or even days out of your vacation time depending on the "trouble" you got into.

          PT while getting in trouble? Nah.
          PT while getting in trouble while in PT? Sometimes.
          Get yelled at? Nah, not like you would imagine it on TV.
          Get treated like a little kid? No, you get treated like you have no brain but not like a little kid.
          Exams? 4 exams that you have to pass with a 75% passing score on each.(use to be combined cummilative, but that was tossed out and now each exam is independent from each other).

                You have a quiz everyday in class..but every month, you have a trimester exam, in the final month of the academy, you have a justification exam (100% pass-nothing less-no worries, its easy..shoot the dog!) and an open-book patrol guide exam.

                PT/Tactics is every day while you're in the academy pretty much...and you have exams on handcuffing, asp and all the other toys you have...it wasn't that long ago for me, but I think the first month or two, you do first aid/CPR...

                  Basically 4 exams, but with justification which noone fails, so its TRULY 5 exams.

                  Not counting PT exams as Norwich stated.

                  The quizzes mean squat, its just meant to see what area of the academics you have trouble in. If you score 80's 90's and 100's, you are pretty much OK. Lots of people said that the quizzes were harder than the actual exams.

                  I thought the exams were pretty easy.

                    The show the academy is kinda of staged anyways, they edit a lot of things out.

                        That's the real deal, it was taped in 2006 no editing or anything. In the show "the academy" they have to make it interesting because they want ratings so they cut and edit a lot of stuff.

                        [email protected] you do not wear a silk tie to my academy, PLAYA.

                        and

                          go down to the middle of the page until you see the video session and click on the tittle "194th session video", now the NYPD academy is not as hard as the NYSP academy.

                            STOP THIS!! I can't handle it anymore, every time I love a department or departments, someone always makes me attracted to another one!!

                            I have one of those good problems of TOO MANY DEPARTMENTS TO CHOOSE FROM!!

                            Those were some awesome videos.
