          • Quite a few of us have taken repeat polys, including myself. There was probably a response that was deemed inconclusive, or something. The second poly, as I understand it, will focus on that particular area. I don't think that they would give you another poly if you weren't a desirable candidate. You should be fine. dc5, the email is [email protected]. Be sure to identify yourself. It's my wife's address, and I direct my emails there(I was checking emails very infrequently, she checks hers several times daily). If we don't recognize the source, it will not be opened.

                Congrats! Are you currently in the area? If not, when are you coming in? Shoot me an email, maybe you can meet some of the medic interns, such as myself, and maybe go for some group runs, and such. I'll offer up some survival tactics for the academy. If we can meet prior to Oct. then it won't be quite as goofy when we return from the medic internship. Be sure to be in shape, and try to be past any running related issues, such as shin splints. We had the luxury of leaving the academy to complete the internship, allowing us to heal up, and get in better shape, if necessary. If you sustain any injuries, you'll possibly be "recycled" into the next recruit class. If you're out of shape, it will be extremely difficult to play catch up, as the training becomes progressively more rigorous. Contact me, and I'll tell you what I currently know.

                • Personal History ?

                  Does anyone know if/what Fairfax County's auto-disqualifications are with regard to past (and I mean at least 5-7 years past) drug use/expierimentation? I tried some stupid *** things back in my early-mid 20's and want to see if I'm looking at being disqualified right off the bat for it. Thanks a ton!!!!!!!!!!

                    Congratulations ALBO, you'll love the 126 as your head instructor is probably the best (in my opinion). Unfortunately though, if you have seen those videos of the 117th and the 118th recruit school, they will be stopping the recruit videos as the videographer is leaving after the 125th. So remember to take advantage that you will be able to bring your cameras to the academy. It'll be rough but very fun. Enjoy and stay safe!

                    • Wow! Congrats Albo! That seemed pretty fast! I finished the process myself in March 2007 and am still hoping to hear something and trying to remain positive...although if they have done selections for the upcoming academy then it looks like I may be reapplying soon. Albo is right though, everyone here has been so helpful to the point that I got all of my questions answered by going through this thread. Thanks guys! Anyone else hear anything? Good luck Albo and keep us hopefuls updated on how things go!

                            I wrote your number down, and then I couldn't find it, as I'm disorganized at times. Please resend the email. I've recently found two hills near my home. One is longer than the academy's "Mt. Trashmore", and the other one is short and steep, perfect for sprints. We'll have fun. I think that the calls went out for the 126th class, I've heard like forty or so have been hired. People do accept the job, and then cancel. One recruit showed up for the 125th on one days notice, after another cancelled. Keep in frequent contact with recruitment. Please resend your number. I'm off for the next three days, and have plenty of time to talk.

                              Resent! You'll have 2 excuse the repeat as I'm conducting a lot of internet stuff through my phone. :P

                              Well, at least the 126th is well on it's way! When I started the whole process back in March, I couldn't get all of the hiring stuff done soon enough, so I was told that i'd be vying for a spot with the 127th. *shrug* who knows?

                              Give a call, sir! I'm on a small break from life right now- catching up on sleep. So i'll b available 4 a decent chat!
