    Thank you. I don't intend to cry every day- I didn't in boot camp either. I can handle that, and I can handle a stress situation pretty well. I just lost it there for some unexplainable reason.

    So If I reading right, if I conduct myself in a positive manner from now on I may be able to 'prove' myself. That's fine. I can and will. I just realize I've made the burden of proof that much more by crying on the board, and hate it.

    May I ask what you personally do to check emotions when they threaten?

    If they passed you to the next step, they passed you to the next step. Obviously, not everybody was in agreement. You need to collect yourself. If you are going to cry everyday in the academy because you're getting yelled at and dropped for push ups, they're gonna send you home.

    No I cried, collected myself, and finished the board.

    After they had me sit in a room. After a debate ( I could tell by their faces some were against it) I was told I had advanced to the next step, got fingerprinted and my packet for polygraph.

    I would think the board is gonna wonder if you are gonna cry every time you are sent on a call. Did they tell you that you passed and then you cried, or what?

    Female going through process.

    Hello all, first, and thank you for reading and responding.

    I'm trying for the process..the first time out I was torn to shreds on the oral board. I didn't give up and tried again. This time I've made it through the physical, background, written, and oral board. Today I have the polygraph. If I make it through that, the last of the process is a Psych eval.

    What's been bothering me-I cried at the oral board. I hate it. I realize as a female I have to present myself in a very firm way.

    Now this wasn't blubbering, it was a little misty and a face twitch. It was noticed however.

    I'm not crying b/c I am scared, or even particularly emotional, really. I just have my heart set on this position. It means a lot to me, and a particular personality flaw is crying when I'm totally involved. I cried at my wedding, at the birth of my children, at my graduation from boot camp.

    Obviously I passed-how much do you honestly thinks this hurts me? And does anyone have any tips to avoid it in the future if I don't make the cut this time?

    Thank you again for any advice.
