    So what do you guys think would be best, the cargo pants or just the simple straight leg? Just long sleeve shirts or do you think the short sleeve dress shirts are ok as well?

    Can't wait to give notice, I left one of my 2 jobs thinking I was gonna start 6/25 and kept the part time one, so it wouldn't be a big deal when I left, My boss prolly thinks I'm full of ***** at this point. Does anyone know how the pay periods fall when it comes to the academy start?

    They told me June 25 also I'm lucky I didn't give a two week notice.

    Simple 4 pocket would be best to buy right now, I think, since that is what you'll get issued. And go with the short sleeve shirts since you'll be reporting in August.

    I talked to someone also:

    Looks like they are stil waiting on Medicals from the health office. Good thing I didn't place a bet on the start date. I would have lost a long time ago.

    gotta remember that HR is at the mercy of the city, mayor, car 1, and budget concerns. They also may be going wtf when stuff changes.

    i hear even the 24th is a possiblity.

    If it is pushed back, next dates would probably be 9/9 and 9/13.

    I wonder how many candidates, who don't check this forum, have given up on this working out? Every set-back on starting dates has to deter some people?
