    Would one of you military guys and/or guys on the job be able to shed some light on the deal with the reserves for me? I'm not actually certain how a candidate could know this, but if one is in the reserves and gets called to the academy; how does that work. I know that you are required one weekend a month of training and 2 weeks a year. I would imagine you would need to leave on a Friday for said training. And then obviously you're required by law to do that 2 weeks. What if the 2 weeks happens to fall during your hypothetical class? What I'm getting at, is it is probably a bad idea to sign up right now if you're relatively close yeah?

    When I was there, it seemed like they wanted originals. Especially the birth certificate, diploma, etc. To be safe, I would bring originals of whatever you can get your hands on.

    from what i remember 0600 is reville, 0730 is start of work day so as long as your there for muster by 0730 saturday your ok, also taps is 2200 so depending on your command you could probly leave before 2200 on sunday nite. its just the two full days that need to be fulfilled. anyway if you are reserve talk to your command if you have a legit shot at making the academy they will sympathise (maybe) and let you do 6 months of drilling over the course of 1 month. kinda like front loading, as long as your not deploying or involved in any other evolution where it is necessary you report

    Gotcha. So they MIGHT work with you. I have to be honest that it's tough to necessarily trust that. Also having to fulfill that one weekend a month alone is probably a horrible idea in terms of resting your body and doing homework...

    i dont know about other branches but i know the cg does a program called sumer stock where ou pretty much go on active duty for the summer to a unit and then that fullfils the requirement for the year
    someone else may be abble to fill you in better on summerstock, iam told its used only at seasonal places during the summer months and shuts down afterward , i know station block island was one, since noone goes here in the winter and the school and living was rough on dependants they shut it down in the winter months, plus station montauk and air station cape cod are so close it was just a drain on the branch as well as its memebers...like being the hotel keeper in the shining

    [QUOTE=coldblood92;1359315]do they want everyone's W2s from the last 5 years or just military peoples[/QUOTE

    it dosent say anything about past w-2s, unless you claim residency. then they want 2010 and 2011 or the equivalent for example i did real estate sales and do not get a w-2 i get a 1099. since i dont recieve a salary
    other than the 2x2 photo i think is a very similiar list,

    I am not on the job obviously, but what I did in preperation for this next academy is request a substitution for drill days (SUTA). I am actually still waiting on approval, but I have essentially rounded up the rest of the years drill time and spaced it out between now and early July. Check with your command and see if they what they say. And if you dont make it into this academy, you can ask for another SUTA for when your likely to.
    Keep in mind, your command will most likely require you to make those days up during the week. The dates you pick to do your drill should be dates that you have nothing going on. I know CPAT is supposed to be Mid April-MAy 18th, so I wont be drilling on any of those dates.
    And lastly, you can always just request to be excused from drill all together (Same form, SUTA). I know someone who did this for Corrections. Me personally, I wanted this year to count towards retirement!!

    And yes, If you expect to be in this Summers academy, I would hold off until after your Proby time before entering the reserves. The military will always be there. FDNY is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Thats the way I look at it anyway...Hope this helped, if not PM me.

    I Just called CID again. The woman that answered now had no idea what I was talking about. She said when you meet with your investigator, that they will give you something else to work with and that you will need to bring in a detailed earnings statement from Social Security, not a print out of your W2's.

    So I was f***ed up. Sorry all.
    My policy is, I am just waiting for my investigation meeting before I do anything else!

    You can get your earnings statement online on social security website, I just had to do it for something else. Or you can go to your local office and they will mail it to you but it is the exact same thing that you can download.

    You can go to their office and get a print out right there, for 5 years, it's $21 (money order) only. And, yes you are gonna need the SS printout, that's something I have to bring to him since I didn't have it. But you also need w2 for residency credit....

    did you have your W2's going back 5 years? I am wondering if you need both, or either will suffice.

    It's basically a piece of paper that lists what you made for each year you have paid into social security.

    Have to have a high school diploma, high school transcripts or GED even if you have college.

    The military lost mine when I had initially processed down at MEPS and I just called up my high school and they will either mail to you or you can pick up a sealed envelope with school stamp on it and as long as its sealed when you give it to them they will take that as your diploma.

    Get off the treadmill and get outside. Use runkeeper or some similar program.

    I had the same problem. I called the guidance office and they had a statement ready for me to pick up the next day attesting to my having graduated with a board of ed imprinted seal on it. Call your school tomorrow they may be able to do the same for you.

    Was at the academy today for CPAT training and even was lucky enough to partially witness one of the fire drills in a smoking building, it was sick. But its harder than I expected, especially with the vest on and if you have feet over size 10, your gonna have a problem with your toes getting crunched in the stepmill but cardio cardio and more cardio, and youll be fine goodluck
