          I called the other day and was told no decision has been made for the September academy. The recruiter I spoke with didn't think the budget cuts would affect the September academy and said it is still worth the time and effort to apply.

            I think the Sept Academy is still a GO. Apply.

                  i wonder if they are going to put on an academy this summer in place of the april one? i took my poly yesterday and the examiner told me austin told him they had to get it done in 8 days. perhaps that is sop but it seems quick to me seeming i only took the initial tests last week. i didn't expect it to go this fast.

                    I took the poly a few weeks ago. My background was finished last Monday so now I am waiting for Austin to go in front of the board.

                      Once they have 50 slots filled, they will start up the academy. Last I heard, only 11 spots were filled.

                        Trooper2795, When the BI is done how long do you expect that it would take for me to be contacted by Austin to set up the board. My BI was done last Monday but I was not told if I was recommenced or not. If I wasn't I would think that he would have told me.

                          It all depends on how busy Audtin HQ is. I would say within 2 weeks since they are past due on starting up the April Academy! Everything is in a rush in my opinion. I have a buddy that did the PT/written tests on Monday and got a call on Tues to be jn Austin on Friday for the poly. It's mainly a coin flip. If you didn't have anything horrible in your background, I would say they you're good to go. Any more questions, feel free to PM me. I'll try my best to answer what I can.

                            background started today. ironically, the secret service started their background investigation today as well.

                            for you troopers out there i have a question. i applied a couple of months ago and when i did it said that they were accepting applications for an academy that started in the fall. i planned on spending a lot of time this summer doing ride along's and hanging around some of the troopers in my area (i'm a hs coach and am bogged down now, will have time this summer). if i get through the process and am offered a slot in the may/june academy can i opt for the one in the fall? basically the process is moving a lot faster than i anticipated.

                              I'd say if you have the chance to go now, go. I wish I was ready! I dont finish school unitl August and then I can start the process too. Good luck either way!
