        best bet would be dark blue tshirt and shorts. you'll probably get academy issued PT gear the first day so don't go crazy with buying multiple sets on your own. I would say two sets of shirt and shorts is enough to play it safe without overspending. I wouldn't recommend wearing a shirt with any writing on it that would single you out. You could bring sweatpants and a sweatshirt too just to be prepared but I highly doubt they'll let you run around in that. Keep in mind you may not get a locker or anything the first day so you'll be carrying all of your crap with you.

              Yeah mine did also. I emailed hr a few days ago and I was still on the list, I'm guessing it's just a system error

                    • HR said that they didn't know why our rank was coming up as not on any active list, they said my rank is still the same in their system. Just for everyone's piece of mind.
