Anyone know if the T Academy accepts self sponsors, and if they do are there usually slots open or should I just look towards Lowell?

You can self sponsor still if you are appointed by a agency. I know at least 4 self sponsors in current academies, you cant go if your daddy is the chief's buddy and sends you as a favor like before, you must be employed PT or FT by a P.D.

Come to Florida, self sponsor yourself thru the academy, then go back to Mass and get a waiver for their academy!!! And this would be acceptable.

I don't think Massachusetts accepts academies from other states, but many states accept Mass academies.

MA does accept out of state academies provided they are comparable in hours and subject areas covered. You have to apply for a waiver and pass a criminal law exam.

Right you are chief. However, the appointing authority must make the request for the exemption. Otherwise, it's back to school again! :(
