    Congrats Texas817. PM me if you're still interested in doing a carpool to Academy. (Did they tell you Oct. Academy?)

    For all the guys that didn't make it, keep your heads up. You made it through a rigorous process, and should be proud.

    I would bet that between now and March, someone will drop or not be able to attend. If you read last year's thread, there were guys that had this happen.

    It's crazy. I've been all depressed thinking that last Friday was the end of it all and everybody had gotten their call but I called this morning and to my surprise I was told I was #79. I couldn't believe it. I'm so looking forward to this. I will be running like crazy from now on just to make sure I'm in my best shape once I get into the academy. Congrats to all who were able to get in and I hope the best for those who didn't.

    Does anyone know if DFD will have sub-rookies for this recruitment phase? Also, does anyone know how many dropped out from last years academies? Thanks in advance.

    Well, Im out for now. Ranked in the 90's. Lady on the phone said I was in "good position" for the spring academy, fwiw. Hopefully there will be some good news down the road. Congrats to all of you who made the initial cut.

    Hey Everybody, been following this forum since the beginning as a guest!! Its been a grueling, exciting and long process!!!! First I would like to congratulate everyone that made the cut, and all the ones that didnt u guys keep ur head high and there is always a next year. Never give up. As for me I decided that if i made the cut I will join the forum. So I called yesterday and the lady told me that my rank is # 85, so I am guessing tha'ts March Academy. I am really excited to meet everybody and start a great and fulfilling career One problem though I havent worked out in 4 months!!! So now I have to hit the gym and whopp myself back into shape. I was wondering if there is anybody that got their ranks from 61 to 90, aka March guys, that would like to start a program and work out together!!! I live in Addisson and I my membership is with L.A Fitness.

    I'd be willing to be that 4 months is the short end for some people who are going in to the Academy. You're thinking correctly though, in wanting to get started now. Congrats on the great news.

    Hey Everyone, i'm also new to the thread but i've been following from close to the beginning. Congrats to everone who made it and let's get ready for a one of a kind career. To those who didn't, keep up the hard work and don't give up. I live in Fort Worth and I made the Oct. cut so I was wondering if anyone else from this area made it and would like to try to set up a carpool to save us some gas money. If anyone is interested PM me or just hit me up on the thread. Goodluck to everyone and prayers to the Burcie family and friends.

    Hey Kcam23, I was wondering the same thing. I think it's once your background and DT come back they call you. I just received my call this morning to get fitted and pick up so i'm sure if you havn't been called yet it'll happen pretty soon. Good luck and let me know when you get the call.

    Got the same call this morning. Oct. 10th will be here before we know it. I can't wait to get started.

    Has anyone else gotten the call for Oct. or March class? Congrats to everyone who got the call, and hopefully the ones who didn't, try again. One year ago, they hired around 200, so the next big class could be just around the corner. Keep your heads up and keep pushing.
