          If you're prior military then you get longer than 2 years. You may be able to find the exact amount of time looking online, I just know veterans get longer than 2 years on Pathways.

                This is true, but not a blanket statement that all veterans will be able to apply outside of the two year window - at least from what I can tell. On the OPM website, it states:

                "Veterans unable to apply within two years of receiving their degree, due to military service obligation, have as much as six years after degree completion to apply."

                So, the way that I understand that is that somebody that graduated two years ago but was then later called to active duty, deployed, mobilized, etc., then they would be able to apply outside of the two year window as they were not able to take advantage of the program due to their military service obligation.

                However, if a veteran got out of the military ten years ago and graduated two years and one day from the closing date of the job, then he or she would technically be ineligible to apply under pathways as their ability to apply under the program was affected by something other than their military service (lack of announcements, missed an opportunity to apply, etc.)

                Like I said, I could be wrong, but it seems as though an exception is only made when one is unable to apply under pathways due to a military event occurring after graduation. There are presumably a great deal of veterans who would not meet this criterion.

                  Good find online! I'd probably throw my hat in the ring anyways. Thanks for adding that.

                  • Question about the FIT test. I was informed that the USMS no longer does the sit and reach and body fat portion for those selected for the pre-academy FIT Test. Is it the same in the academy? The run, pushups, and sit-ups are pretty straight forward and obviously important. Not to many agencies left that really have a pass/fail based on flexibility. Didn't know if the other two events were totally removed or not.

                      The academy is run on FLETC standards, so yes, you will be required to perform the entire PEB. That's what they told me when I was chatting one of them up in GA last Sept anyway.

                        The pathways is specifically for undergraduate degrees only (barring military time, of course)

                          I don't believe that is entirely correct. Eligibility for pathways as posted on the OPM website is as follows:

                          "Recent graduates who have completed, within the previous two years, a qualifying associates, bachelors, masters, professional, doctorate, vocational or technical degree or certificate from a qualifying educational institution."

                            Unless this is specific to the USMS, that is not true. Those taking graduate classes have been included in pathways announcements in the past.

                              I stand corrected. I was looked at a posting for another position I had applied for. Must be agency specific.

                                Yeah. I'm currently employed under RG in my agency. But unfortunately, I am not prior military, so my 2 years is up on 8/31
