They treat you pretty inhumane there so makes sense.
Ooohhh.... you're one of the 36 that washed out week one? 馃槕
How did this week go??
I know of 2 medical deferments... one of them can't wait to get back because he "loved it" 馃槼
Great kid... gave him two surgeon referrals. Hope he gets fixed up right!

Yes he is still there. He鈥檚 still kicking although every Friday he says the same thing: 鈥渢his is terrible鈥 lol
Tell him to suck it up and stick it out.

It's all very physical, but it'll get better.
Do you think already a cop in a municipality would make the state police academy easier?
I don't think so.

Maybe with the classroom stuff... Nothing's worse than "well back in my department we'd __."

It's a break down build up model.
Not to mention, while doing flutter kicks on Rear Company Street, thoughts of "I could be working a Verizon right now sipping a Dunkies" could creep in.
A friend of mine repeated in her head "bikini weather is coming... bikini weather is coming..." 馃榿

I'm trying to get in hopefully 89th/90th. Does academy allow diabetics to monitor their levels as they have in past classes? I heard some kid got booted this class because they wouldn't work with him on this.
You absolutely MUST have a pump - and NOT one that uses a cell phone. You can go to the infirmary for your insulin but there's no telling if you're going to have your meal on time, and that it will contain the correct amount of carbs.

They'll let you defer a class to take care of that but I know two diabetic troopers who'll tell you to just get the pump ahead of time.

Also - being that your medical situation will be common knowledge tis best to bear in mind this group enjoys members from agencies all over... including the MSP. 馃槈
