  • Mint might be different than DA. Mine was two interviews, for COE, now I have to do the med, background, and pee tests. I'll do a PAT at some point (19 pushups, 1.5 mile run in 17:30)

      • I was referred for the Denver posting. Hopefully 10 years at the BOP and the Marine Corps will be what they are looking for. Do they usually like to send people that have the full fletc training or will they send people once they are hired? I went to fletc but only for three weeks with the BOP.

            Nice! I meant to say ask if the MINT likes to hire people that have the full fletc training or they don't mind spending the money sending people to training.

                  Nope, no email yet. I was referred for Fort Knox as well. Nothing yet.

                  • I appreciate the candor of this conversation so far.

                    Just an FYI, as a former USSS/UD PO who passed through the FLETC machine once already, the experience is everything you make of it.

                    I had a blast and made great friends in training that I still keep in touch with today. Some advice for those waiting; get healthy, flexible, aerobically fit now. The biggest cause of washout I witnessed during training were injuries based poor fitness after arrival at FLETC. (ie. shoulder ligaments, shin splints) Do not just plod along on a treadmill at 5 mph set to 1% incline, run in real outdoor conditions. Don't just jog on a bike trail, include indian sprints(even if it is only 100 feet), intervals and hills. It makes all the difference and you will be thankful when your body goes anaerobic in training.

                    I feel this is worth saying for the common good. We all want to succeed.

                    One other question
                    Is this time of year hard to coordinate interviews because management happens to take more leave?

                    Denver 16' - Fingers crossed!

                      Seems like good advice, but what is an Indian Sprint? In three academys I've never done them. (Do they include curry?).

                      • I do love that coconut green curry n' duck.

                        The exercise is jogging in a line with your classmates and the last person sprints to the front on the whistle. Sweat some and repeat. We ran a lot in Artesia.

                        My hint was to push yourself to >90% effort for short bursts.

                          That is a heck of a cardio work out! We used to take turns running around the class as they jogged in formation.
                          I was envisioning an Indian meal, a roll of TP and a sprint to a porta jon!
                          Thanks for the advice!
