    Wearing a suit and tie to orientation is the way to go right? Only reason i question it is because i thought i read somewhere that we need to be fitted for uniforms and PPE. Not even sure if that would be done at orientation. But it would suck to wear a suit just to have to take it off.
    you could wear a suit, but a polo and khakis would be fine. you'll see some guys in suits and some guys in sweats. you don't get a name tag or sign in or anything so you aren't going to be remembered anyway unless you really manage to do something stupid. the orientation is mostly just them telling you about the process. you won't get fitted for uniforms until later. you'll learn more that night about what your next steps are and when they'll be.

      Any idea how long the orientation is? I plan on arriving early but looking to see approx. how many hours it is.

        not long. maybe 2 hours at most. definitely get there early if you're driving, parking there can be difficult

        • Anyone have insight on the height/weight requirements? Or the next steps after orientation? Will there be an oral interview before a final offer is made? Just trying to prepare!

          • Any rough estimates for how many show at orientation? Im in the mid 200's, just trying to gauge my schedule for this year. Goodluck to all candidates who are in the process.

                  Well my rank is in the 140s and I’ll be going today. I’ll try to ask around and see if anyone has a higher rank

                      Lastnight there were 150 invited some did not show. From what they said they're putting 100 cadets in this class. Also during the part where they broke us into smaller groups someone asked if another another class was planned for those not makinh this class. The instructor said August. Sounds like they're trying to do back to back classes.

                        • Anyone know how they would like us to verify the PATCH report? I just printed out the whole webpage that said “no record”. Any insights?

                              My understanding is the report saying "No Record" indicates just that, no record in PA and nothing more than that paper printed out is needed. Would only supplemental from the courts if there was a record found on PATCH.

                              • Anyone on here that was at orientation looking to split an apartment? I know it’s early but trying to plan ahead a bit. Even if a few of us hook up now and if we get the call we can pull the trigger on something then. Also if anyone has a room they are looking to rent out I’d be interested in that. Thanks.
