        I just checked my CASS. That is a cool feeling.

        Frisco and Yoda, are you guys shadowing for three weeks at your port before going to FLETC?

              The only thing I can say is start working out. The fitness test is not the toughest in the world but you need to be in some sort of shape to get by. When I took the first test I was maybe a two time a week gym goer and I didn't kill it everytime, but if you havent been in the gym for a few years you may have some problems with it.

                When it went back to pending it was for the refresher... where they run the credit check and that's it. If it goes back to pending again it will be for a Full BI.
                That timeline excludes those who have a current clearance with BOP...
                okay so what you are saying is, it expires 2 years from when the BI is fully Adjudicated by your BI Investigor.. Which can Possibly be few months after The TSU date?
                Thanks so much

                  That FLETC chicken is a couple of years away brother... Not to put you down, just don't get those hopes up to be sitting in waiting, and then frustration kicks in.

                    By the time you get the call you will need to do 17 proper push ups, 25 proper sit ups, 1.5 mile in 17 min and 220 yard dash in 50 sec... I'd say get the ball rolling NOW, or you won't even pass the PFT1.

                      Nah i know Yoda trust me been waiting on ICE since 08. Just feels like this process is moving slightly quicker than any other I put in for. Time will tell.

                        Indeed,
                        but the Investigator submits his report within 2 weeks from your meeting... it then falls into IA to be adjudicated and that's where the process slows down to a crawl. The Investigator is not the Adjudicator, he simply submits a report about the findings of the investigation, it is then up to the Adjudicator in IA to say yes or no... but most of the time waiting is simply for them to get to your file, once the get to it it takes almost no time at all depending on how complex or if they have to issue a NOPA. This is when it really slows down and you'll end up waiting 1-2 years to finalize it.
                        I'm explaining this for those who are not familiar of how this works... as I have gone through most situations that can arise with the BI portion.

                          They're really quick about processing up until the BI, after that you sit in TSU waiting for your number to be next.... which you can see that they're going through 08-09 applicants still...

                              As of now I have to shadow for three weeks. I think those three weeks consist of VLC virtual learning courses.

                                You need to try the Couch to 5k approach. Search it on google.
