    Hey guys,
    Do we need a DMV Abstract as part of the documents needed?

    Thank you, Is there a full checklist floating around I can double check with? I also wonder about School Transcripts, but it doesn't mention in the packet.

    They have done 3 classes a year in the past. When my cousin got in, they were doing 3 classes and he said they overlapped with the class before him.

    She was referring to the class after this one. She would sometimes say the "July"class or say "May/June" class.

    I think the academy was only 3-4 months last time they hired. Shorter academy would make it a lot easier to do 3 classes per year. Such is not the case now, unfortunately. Just gotta deal with it.. This snow is gonna put me behind a week or so in training so I'll take any extra time that I can get. I just want to get through this med/psych so all I got left to do is wait for a run letter. That's my goal for now lol.

    The bag was 29.99. Then the collar brass was 6 bucks a pair, and the tie clips were 5 bucks each. They said I couldn't buy any extra clothing on that day, the guy said come back on friday if you want extra stuff.

    Just some advise, spend a little extra on the bag. I spent $45 on mine, and it was well spent. Bag is is still in great shape. Other guys bought cheaper ones and they were held together with duct tape.
    If anyone is interested in my bag, I'll sell it for $20. My binders fit in it, and I felt it was the perfect size for other stuff. I'm just missing the long shoulder strap, but you will not use that in the academy. DIs will have a field day with you if they see you with the bag on the shoulder. I'm in the Bronx.....

    I plan on buying the patagonia black hole duffle 45 liter size, it's highly water resistant and looks like the perfect size for two binders and extra supplies. It's expensive but a friend of mine gets me it for half off. If in gonna spend 40 on a bag I might as well get something that I will use after the acdemy as well. It's nice that it's all black and fairly lightweight.

    Only if your license is from a different state. My investigator didn't take it. They have access to your driving record already. Save yourself the $10 and a trip to the DMV.

    When you get there, chances are someone will be there. Just do what they are doing unless they are getting yelled at. LOL
    When you get to Fort Totten, after the security guard, make your second right and follow road, after the big grassy area on left make left. You will see parking lots on the left, park there, and look for the white little building across from the lot. It should have a little sign on it.
    Be quiet, get gear, try it on as fast as you can, and get the hell out of there.

    Run tomorrow! Must force myself to sleep. Hope all goes well for everyone. Btw, another guy mentioned we weren't initially supposed to bring anything extra like clothes, but the rescheduling altered those instructions. I'm going to bring a pair of jeans and a button down. I hope they're understanding as to why some of us won't be dressed in business attire.

    Did anyone get their dress jacket at the quartermaster or did they just fit us for them?

    Ugh, fine. I'll try and fold them as best as I can, but they're going to get wrinkled.

    You guys should start accepting by now that the FDNY has become your new wife/gf and that no matter what you do you are wrong and will be yelled at for.
