    mc is everyday i believe.. and dc is during your physical part. im not sure.. from what i hear from.. just get the mile half and the short distance down! if you do not have a beer gut, sit-ups shouldn't be hard, if you can lift half of you.. not a problem.. but for the run part especially..ive seen and heard people fail out because of it! and you wont get your diploma and graduate with everyone!

      mc you'll play wall ball and the longest distance you'll run is 3 miles

      dc you do crossfit everyday and the shortest distance you'll run is 3 miles, towards the end you'll do a 8-10 mile fun run

          We actually never did that last run. They spoke of it, but I guess the schedule goofed things up. I couldn't say anything of Montgomery.

          1. DCCC offers you college credits (around 32-36) which is close to halfway to an associates degree.
          2. The PT is excellent for preparing you for everything. Except maybe for bench press, you can probably pass by the exercise you do there alone (though I don't recommend it of course)
          3. My class, at least, was very supportive during PT, exercising at the end of the day, sitting together in the lunch room, studying for test during the excessively long lunch break.
          4. Excellent instructors from various positions within Delaware and Chester County
          5. Excellent facility at the college, including a weight room and aerobics room where you'll spend PT when you aren't running for the first 45-90 mins. The weight room is accessible much of the day for you to spend time there at lunch and after class. You won't get much time in there during PT because of congestion.
          6. Trooper Ash is awesome (prepare for leg scissors)


          I guess if you want cons:

          1. Not a lot of resources poured into EVOC. With a large class, you'll do the course like 5 times then sit and watch everyone else go through. It's fun, but not particularly advantageous.
          2. The college charges a bundle for their lunches
          3. ??

                Whats up gentleman, I had graduated from MCCC's night academy 10months! last July. Overall I would not reccomend the night academy unless you are extremely motivated. Also you cannot be picky about where you test in PA take every test you can. I took 24 exams before I was hired! and i ended up getting hired in Baltimore, and sad to say they dont accept ACT 120 unless you have atleast a year on. Most of my cadets that I graduated with are having an extremely hard time finding jobs, some of them with 4 year degrees, and military. Network as much as possible take every test you can for the expierience, and have fun I met alot fo great guys going through this academy and Instructos whom I still keep in contact with.

                  I graduated end of 2008 and some of the guys in my class still arnt hired

                  too many applicants not enough jobs, you might have to end up leaving the area if you're serious about a job

                  sad fact is it's a $4000 investment and just by statistics a lot of guys will never get a job

                    The ones that are worth it will get jobs. The ones that aren't dedicated and not worth their weight won't. It's better that way.

                          Female's as well - I'm sure there are a few who don't take it seriously or quit early on.
