    Has anyone had to go and get a specialist to sign off on there medical because of a surgery? I got a form a specialist has to do. Wondering the success rate.
    I just sent paperwork back in from my surgeon. Had shoulder surgery 3 years ago. I wasn't able to go in for a physical with him since I've since moved away from where I got it. No response yet other than received. I was cleared to return to duty as a law enforcement officer so hopefully nothing gets messed up by it.

      Yea, they told me they wanted a recent exam, same thing i moved away, plus my surgeon wont see me without out a referral plus images, i returned to security contracting after and now im a leo so i hope it will work out as soon as i can find a specialist that will do the exam!

              Nice. Same, all I have done is is the 306 declaration for federal employment, hoping i havent done any BI forms or anything since I have a brand new TS. Havent heard much since then. I need to follow up because I received the request for the 306 on the massive email with probably a 100+ applicants, saying 'this is the next form you need to fill out now that you've received your tentative offer' or something like that, however i never received a TO email

              • Took and passed my FIT test today. The deputy who gave it was super cool, but he didn't know anything about this hiring process and didn't have any information. Sounded like he was just given administering my test as an assignment.

                  I've never really gotten a straight answer on this...is the FIT pass/fail, or is it actually scored and ranked vs other candidates?

                  • No clue, I would assume it's ranked, just like I would assume the same for the interview and the tests.

                      You have to meet the minimum scores from the fitness standards chart to pass. Having said that, the USMS proud themselves on everything about fitness. If your application package gets picked up for review by any office chief, and your PT scores are not the best, most likely they are going to pass on you. For every applicant that scores 75% on the FIT test, there are 5 more with scores in the high 90s.

                        I was under the impression that, at this stage of this game, the FIT test was offered as a pre req for a final offer. As long as you passed the FIT, then you would receive the offer. I'd think it would be out of sorts to spend all this time and money on qualified candidates, only to pass over them in the end because their PT scores weren't high enough. Failing the test, I could completely understand the pass, and getting minimum scores drawing unwanted attention at FLETC I can definitely understand, but ending a candidates potential employment on an arbitrary feeling seems odd.

                        I also recognize how strongly USMS feels about fitness (and I'm completely on board with that), so it could very well happen. I was just under the impression that a class 'group' had essentially been chosen and sent FIT tests. As the tests come back complete, the class fills in, as opposed to sending out FIT's en-masse for a large pool of FIT tested candidates from whence classes would be filled. But I'm just a guy speculating away over here and obviously defer to the more knowledgeable here (you know, the guys actually ON the job).

                        Regardless, I am slaying myself nearly every day. Mental toughness is the hardest to train.

                          You will not get a final offer until some ACDUSM from any of the 94 offices in the US has reviewed your application package and is interested in you. FIT scores are a huge factor when these Chiefs review the application packages. If they like you as an applicant, they will notify HRD with their decision and you may get a final offer then. Not everyone who gets a FIT test and pass will get a final offer. The USMS hiring process is one of the most competitive processes in federal law enforcement. In actuality, every applicant should score in the high 90%, since this is the only part of the process that is under the applicant's control. At this point, there is no excuse not to score high on you FIT test.

                            Question with this is then does this ACDUSM, is this where you will go since they want to hire you?

                              I would go out on a limb and say if the ACDUSM from whatever field officer selected you, then that is where you would go.

                              • What's the age category for most of all you. These FIT test scores seem very achievable, especially to score in the 90%. Cant wait for the FIT call or email myself. How many have already been given a date or already completed the FIT?
