    The method to the States madness here is that they ask you the same question 17 different ways to see if you answer them differently. Read each question carefully and if you have to.....go back and check your previous answers. Each one you answer differently is a red flag for the Psych's to pick apart when you go back for your oral exam. Nothing to be nervous about...you're gonna be there for most of the day anyways. Just take your time and if a questions sounds familiar chances are good that it is.............

    LOL....come on Jas151. Did he mean academy? LOL, maybe he meant to say basic training. LOL, JK. I was called 2 months after passing the psych, and was a CO academy grad 2 months afterwards.

    brothers and sisters,, trust me nys academy is nothing like a military boot camp or basic training not even close lol..... its not bad at all first couple weeks kinda suck then its cake... and even if you are in bad to no shape pt is a joke and the pt test is the biggest joke of all.. so if you are in even a little bit of shape you will breeze through....
    It is supposed to be para-military but some of the DI's did not know the moves or commands or even proper cadence.. just get through it and do pt on your own for your own piece of mind.... good luck too you all...

    Well im getting kind of antsy here.... i know this is stupid for me to be thinking about but after this 2nd psych test then i start getting paid right?? Do you get normal salary during the acadamy....what does NYS start off as pay wise?? And does anyone have any idea(s) what prison(s) i might be stationed at.

    And you say be prepared to b there all day....well im scheduled at 7:30am....what am i looking at like 4 or 5 hours approx??

    I read another thread that said after 6 mo or a year im not sure ur looking at a good 41k yearly?

    .......got my eyes on a gsxr-600.....gas is too pricey these days.

    And hell....if i can afford it why not a used 350z?? Who wants to roll??

    i know its kinda dumb to count your chickens before they hatch but hey...im happy.
