    I heard you keep training, that's why I said I was fortunate to go in the summer. Those last few weeks in the cold were brutal, I can just imagine when it's cold, snowing or sleeting and your boots are wet from evolutions. Ask MM, he was in the winter class. Remember everyone handles the elements differently, some can handle it, some can't.

    I was told similar by a relative who went through in January. "If you can survive the first 2 weeks, you should be able to stick it through."

    And I'm not entirely sure if this makes me crazy but is there anyone else who cant WAIT to shave their head? Maybe it's just me haha.

    I try to avoid it thinking it might be a jinx. As far as I'm concerned, the hair doesn't come off until I have the letter in hand.

    I don't want to shave my head, but I'm obviously going to. I just picked up hair clippers last night.

    You don't have to go that crazy, just get clippers, use the 1 size and have at it.

    Yeah, having a beard is awesome, but being a hairy dude and having to shave every day will be a curse.

    I heard that its mandatory to grow a mustache upon completion of the academy.

    100%. When I saw the video from last year's class with the guy proposing while hanging from the roof it was kind of cool, but then when I learned that like 3 other guys also proposed the same day I just thought it was pretty lame. I mean, I feel people should do whatever makes them happy and I'm not one to judge, but it doesn't mean I have to think it is original or anything.

    Yeah, but shutting down social media for holiday parties is a little too much. And you guys need to stop worrying about DCAS. They are not involved in our process anymore once FDNY takes over.

    Who has recycled 3 or 4 times, there has only been two academies so far....and they only people I know who recycled both classes were FDNY emt's...the Ph EMS thing is most likely over after this academy. Then we will see how the list moves

    Mine has also changed to "outstanding certification." I wouldn't worry about it if everyone else has that designation.

    I believe the outstanding certification notice means your packet is no longer with dcas and you are under investigation from the hiring agnecy...in this case the fdny
