Yesterday I got a call from my investigator, he wanted to know if I would like 2 weeks more to get ready . He assured me that I wouldn't lose my spot,but I'm going to the 2nd class on 9/22. So I'm really psyched I get a little more time. I'm so grateful for the extra time ! Because let's face it at 52 it's a little challenging to go to an academy .Just wanted everyone on the boards to know I'm in 9/22 class.

I too received a call yesterday from a senior investigator asking if I wanted another two weeks to get ready. Since I already left my job Sunday, I chose to keep my scheduled 9/8 time. Sure, I could use another two weeks to get in better shape, but I really don't want to be "sitting around" for another two weeks with no income.

I'll state it again in case anyone is curious: my 1-on-1 was March 5th (and it was almost an hour long since I know some are worried about their times), I scored an 85 and am almost at the top of page 6.

To anyone else going this Sunday, I do plan on being in Albany a couple hours early if anyone wants to meet up before heading in. I don't know the area that well, but I think there's a gas station near by where you can get a coffee or something. I should know by Saturday exactly where it is, and I'll post it again for anyone who's interested.

The letter I received stated military style, shouldn't be lower than the collar of your shirt and styled in a way that doesn't interfere with equipment(ex. Masks/helmets).

Originally I was going into the academy on the 8th but I changed for the 22nd. I'm leaving from the city.

Forgot to add, No hair extensions and should look like original hair color, no weird dyes.

This piece of advice doesn't affect everyone but those of you who have what they call at the academy the summer sweater (hairy chest) make sure there are no hairs showing out the top of your tee shirts. Me and a few others got hit with that the first week. Those who didn't correct it by the end of the week for the first inspection got caped

My father who has been in for 30 years spoke with one of the union guys and they said September 8th is first class. The second class as already confirmed will start 2 weeks later. The third will be 2 weeks after that. Hope this helps, as I am also waiting for "the call".

He got this information about a week ago before people started getting calls for the second class on the 22nd. So it seems pretty accurate and enough to possibly guesstimate that the next one will be to report on October 6th.

When I was at the academy they said that there were 17 classes approved for this fiscal year. The first class in Sept is the 5th class. The Fiscal year runs from April til March

So it's pretty safe to say there will be consistent classes oppose to how it was for a few months before they picked up again for the 9/8 class. That was a dry spell (i'm sure there have been worse) but still... job on.

Get there at 4 the first week. They will start letting you in right around that. After that I would get there around 6. Each week you need to reset up your room for that week. If you show up late you will have to rush to get it done

A few things.... leaving it at work means two things the first of which BSO touched on, the second is not bringing home aggression and a bad attitude. You will have all kind of emotions from this job and you need to leave them there. If you don't, you will either shut down emotionally, become a drinker or abuse your spouse. Do the job, leave it at the gates. When you are delaying your class, you're screwing yourself. It may not seem like a big deal now, but everyone in the class before you will have seniority on you. When you try to transfer, all of the higher seniority goes before you, in some jails, vacation, time off and especially bids.

This forum is very helpful. Thanks to those experienced individuals taking the time to educate "new jacks " lol. I scored an 87 I believe and had 1 on 1 in march and have not received call but not worrying because "no news is good news" and I have not received DQ notification. Looking forward to this.

Hey can you keep in touch so us women going in on the 22ed get some feedback about the academy ? Either on this forum or e mail me darlajules@yahoo.com I've read a ton and I would just like to be as prepared as I can be. I was in the Air force years ago so I'll be fine with the military stuff.
