    Backfill?
    I'm running July 9th, orientation is July 7th. Does that mean there's a chance they won't put me in for the July academy?

    no you're in. you will probably have your own mini orientation and then they will get you gear etc when they can in the short few days before the 14th. not sure exactly but its been mentioned on this board before.

    Only thing that sucks is that its only gonna be you and like 3 other people surrounded by DI's. Such a small group and being the very last ones they'll have no problem remembering/recognizing you on the 14th, something we all tried to avoid lol. But hey, Happy 4th!

    Yes, they will probably bust your chops, but I don't think all the DIs will be there if there are only gonna be a few candidates. Also, they will only remember you if you do something stupid while you are there. Remember you are just there to try on some clothes as quick as possible, it's not rocket science.

    you think shoes like those would be good for academy pt? i like the all weather aspect, but i usually run in adidas because they have such a light, cushiony ride. I feel slow in Nikes.

    Found a 10k http://www.run10feed10.com/home/#!/enyc anyone down?

    RIP LT Ambelas. It gets real when you hear this happen.

    I thought admin day and orientation day were the same. I got everything ready for tomorrow. You could be right but idk.

    Yea I thought that admin day was the same as orientation too. I was going to bring everything listed on the Personal Data Sheet as well..combo lock, blood type info, contact info for people to be notified in case of emergency etc. Can anyone who knows for sure clear this up? Thanks.

    RIP Lt. Ambelas. Condolences to the family and friends he left behind.

    For those of you getting on next week (and obviously anyone else who wants to pay their respects)...a LOD funeral is THE most important show of brotherhood, at the worst time for the family.

    I got a bag like this too. It won't take up anymore space than a regular brown bag. Does anyone know if there is a specific way they want us to identify our lunch bags? Sounds silly, and I'm probably sweating the small stuff...but I figured I would just sharpie my last name on mine tonight for tomorrow. I'm not sure if they would want other info on there though (e.g. squad/company identification). Maybe I should just wait until tomorrow and see what they tell us to do lol

    just feel like there was no mention of this at the run and the date for orientation is the 14th so I doubt we need all that material

    I don't think we need all that stuff either. The first thing mentioned on the orientation page is the uniform to be worn. I think it's the first day of academy.
