How difficult is it to pass the police hiring process?

I'm currently a graduate school student, I'll be finishing my Masters Degree by June-July of 2020. I'm hoping to land a job with a police department. My written test is in December. Does anyone know if my chances of getting the job improve due to the fact that I'll have a gradate degree? My GPA is around 3.5. Any answers would be appreciated. Thank you.

    work on endurance & strength training - your body will exclude you WAY faster than your mind.

    Work on physical fitness. That’s the hardest part of the exam.

    A lot of it depends on the department.  If you are applying for a large department, that civil service test plays a huge role.  If you don't score high enough, you aren't getting anywhere in the process.

    If you do make it farther to an interview, your degree and GPA probably aren't going to play much of a role.
