    It really is fun isn't it, I'm having the time of my life. My squad is squared away, the evolutions are exciting, the instructors are excellent and the DI'S do a very good job at keeping us motivated and in check. It's overwhelming yes, but if you showed up prepared then it's only half as hard as one expects it to be.

    Got "promoted" this week as well. The DI's like me it seems. Only thing now is that they'll be watching me more closely lol. But I don't mind. All the more to keep me focused. 3 quizzes away from mid terms fellas. Let's keep studying and doing our best and remember that lives depend on it.

    As for me having a big mouth on the forum, it's only on the forum lol. In real life it's head down and mouth shut, as it should be. But at home with your family or on an Internet website, it's ok to be urself.

    I've been told many times the ones who try really hard gets really far. The one who has chased a long time dream will eventually get it. The thing I'm worried about is the written. Yes its easy, but not easy to ACE. 2-3 years and counting. Nearly half a year of workout routine.

    Hey spider

    You getting sleep? Do you feel like the physical prep you did leading up to the academy has served you well? And what do you mean by "promoted"?

    Thanks for sharing

    For guys in the academy, you're a good month in as of now.. are the PT, workouts and cardio still as insanely vigorous as day 1? And does it stay vigorous til the last day of academy? Or does it/has it toned down?

    It doesn't get easier, you just get acclimated.

    Seems to vary depending on the instructor. For the most part, they aren't as hard as week 1. Runs might be a bit longer

    I really wouldn't even worry about the PT if you're in shape. What makes the academy difficult, IMO, is the 11 or so hour days, with like 6 of them being in bunker gear(with a pt right in the middle of 2 bunker gear classes). And then having to go home and study zzz.

    Promoted to squad leader assistant. That may give me away but oh well.

    Yea I feel like my training prep was good enough, but more intensity type training would have helped all the more. I don't like using weights very much so I bought a Gold's Gym XR 10.9 Power Tower and just killed it at home with the basic calisthenics and alot of running with a 20 minute stair master session here and there (10 minute with 50lb vest/10 minutes no vest); nothing crazy.

    I hate running tho. After the academy I'll never run again. The rest of my career will just be hard core calisthenics and stair master with weight vest; each of them twice a week.

    Very true, if they don't see it, it seems like people tell them about it. Hope for his sake no one does.

    Hey I have to change my address with dcas. Did I see that right here, I can do that over the phone? Or do I have to send a letter?

    Anyone done it in person? Already moved and don't want my old address on file any longer than it has to be.

    You get paid weekly or every other week? Is direct deposit mandatory from the start?

    Thought it was mandatory that you had to hand write a letter with name, test number, social, and current address and mail it in.

    You can fax a form (don't do this... I tried twice and both times they screwed up) or mail a letter. I typed a letter and mailed it to both DCAS and FDNY CID.

    Include: name, exam no. 2000, social security number, old address and new address.

    Indicate you want a written confirmation of the change. They'll send you a receipt.

    No stairmaster, just stairs. When you're on them you have the weight of the bunker gear (20lbs), the weight of the mask (I don't know what that is), the hose roll up (30 lbs), and the stand pipe kit (around 20lbs I think).

    The gear weighs more than that, I would say 30-40lbs.
