hey everyone, just a question to see what everyone had to go through or is going through.  Was your police academy hard to get into?  Was there a lot of people trying to get in?  and how hard, or what is the oral interview like?  I have been through many oral interviews trying to land a job until i decided to put myself through the academy, are they the same or different than those interviews?

Please define hard? What I don't want to hear is people thinking like this before they are even in the academy.  It is not meant to be easy, if it was then any bum off the street could get in.  Bust your ass, study, and work hard.  Some suggestions I have, for your oral interview, clean shaven, haircut, and nicely dressed.  Before applying, you should work out, get yourself in shape for the physical so you have no problems.

Since i started my LE career in a state that does not allow self-sponsering, it was not hard to get in the academy, it was hard to get hired originally.
