After five consecutive days of being asked when I'm going to get called, I've realized that the proper retort is, "don't ask so many questions please..."
Quick question. Has anyone used the post 9/11 G.I. bill during the academy? I'm asking because some people say you get the full BAH throughout the academy and for the duration of the probationary period? I was under the impression you don't because it's not a traditional college and the academy is considered vocational training. Any truth to any of this? Thanks for the help
Are the guys that are running considering shaving their heads already? Or maybe too soon?
I've also heard you can use your gi bill during the academy.
For the first majority oc class in jan I understand there will be an abundance of Veterans, I'm curious as to how they'll choose the squad leaders. They'll go by rank correct? But do they just pull a guy out with the highest rank or interview them? The top part of oc will be filled with them
You need to have your head shaven for the first day of school. Guys are probably holding on to their head of hair as long as they can before its gone for 4 1/2 months.
Actually, at the last mentor meeting at HQ, the FF named Shane said that you don't have to shave your head, but everyone does anyway. He said that in the last class a few guys didn't, but by day 4 they had shaved their heads.
It's easier they say with the gear going on and off. Also, if the DIs say to do it, which he said it at the run, then I'm doing it. He actually used a few candidates as examples, and they had crew cuts.
Shave your head. Don't be an indivual. They can't "force" you to shave your head but they can strongly encourage you too. Or they can make you stand there while they punish everyone else for your indivual ism. That's a fast way too make friends.
(27) 800m warm up
six 800m in 3mins with 3min rest
Note: My father was gonna have me do 3:20. I said 3. He said okay 3:10 I said no 3. So... I thought I could do it; and just make a note if you're following this. Plus he knew how hot it was gonna be today. I just wanted to push it today.
I've been paying on and off attention to this thread and have never posted. I wanted to know if I have list #98x when do you think I might receive something in the mail. My FF friend told me that once this July class is officially in that they will start notifying people for the jan class and that I should have a chance for that. Anyone know What was the last list # from the OC to be called?
They did not get to the low 80s for the 1.5 run. I confirmed with my investigator.
Good luck to those running today!
So, is this the last day of running? Wonder how many guys ran and what the last list number they got up to was.
If people fail, I'd imagine they would have more run, right?
Also, here's a photo essay of the FDNY Special Operations Command.
Any word how it went today?
