  • Met with my BI today, seemed to go well. Now the long wait to get cleared. I might one day even get my medical clearance.

      Where are you being recruited out from? I'm May 16 as well. So i'm wondering if they're going state by state for the entire process.

      Tampa Florida office. I don’t know if there’s much rhyme or reason to it. Some BI are out on hold because they are waiting on the contractor to pick up the job. The only thing that seems consistent is the BI starting around 3 months after a successful poly. Others from May 16 have gotten medical clearance but no BI. I’ve met with BI but haven’t received medical clearance. I guess I’ll stand by to stand by.

      blok2400 my BI started about 3 months after successful poly as well. I think you are right on the time window. I received med clearance about a month before the BI as well I will add. No idea how they decide who gets that and when.

      I'm May 2016 also. After requesting to re-sign papers and do an eqip, i haven't heard a peep. Still no med clearance or poly or BI...i'm on the West coast though...wondering if they are sweeping from east to west...

  • Unsuccessful rating during panel interview. Any idea on when you can interview again (2016 applicant)? Does the entire process start over? Thanks!

    • Are there any May 16 applicants who are complete with everything and just waiting on a call?

        congrats colonel87, I am at the complete opposite spectrum. I'm still waiting for my poly, med clearance, and BI to start...

        what about you Pat1686?

        As I’ve stated I’m done with poly and I met with my BI on Monday. The medical is anyone’s guess. The whole process is confusing.

        I am one week post poly and medically cleared. So just waiting for something indicating a pass or fail. Just trying to gauge how far out we all could possibly be. From the looks of it, I would be conservative in saying another year. I've accepted another 1811 position in a different agency but going to keep my foot in the door with this and see where it pans out.

        Pat1686 congrats on your other 1811 gig. Let us know how this one goes too.

    • Oct 15er here. Well I bowed out of the process couple weeks ago. Decided since I don't have any interest in the position anymore, no point in submitting the final preference sheet. I'd just be wasting someone else's time. Good luck everyone.

      • Anyone have any updated intel on FY 19 classes and when calls might start going out?

        Comment


        • Can anyone give me some insight on how the PTT is? More specifically the sit-ups. How strict are they on how high up you go? I know your face must break the vertical plane, but any sort of input is appreciated. Been busting my *** with a personal trainer prepping for this for months. Did a practice run through two days ago and passed everything, but the sit-ups I struggled the last few. Thanks, you can DM me as well. Anything is appreciated to help calm the anxiety I have for this test!

            I can tell you that I did mine December 2016. At that time, you partnered up with an ATF agent and they held your feet for the sit ups and watched the push ups. They never tried to correct my form I didn’t think they were overly strict. They’ll go over the instructions with you before the test.

            You will have to take a PT test at the Academy and you will be sent home if you can't pass.

            Agree with blok....I've given up hoping for this fiscal year. All signs point to FY 20.

          • blok or chifan, Im two weeks post poly and still no word. I know a guy that took his poly a week after me and received a no go email today. What has been the time after poly for notifications?

              Two weeks seems to be the magic number. I got the security package resubmission almost two weeks after I completed the poly. Most people I've talked to have said they heard either way around the two week mark, give or take a few days.

              Mine was weird, I got security resubmission email 2-3 days later. I of course thought maybe they made a mistake because it was so fast. However, 3 months later I met with my BI so at that point I must have passed lol. I think the two week estimate is a safe bet. There’s definitely not a congrats you passed email, it’s implied.

            +1 for 2 weeks. However, I didn’t think they sent “thanks, but no thanks” letters via email.
