        • Medical cleared today, I had to send in so many records and visit the doctor so many times, didn't think I was actually going to make it past that part, on to drug test, BI, and poly......

                yea i remember i commented about that, congrats. I was wondering if anyone else had. Trying to keep my fingers crossed that I get picked up after switching and nothing more is required or left un-done. I had to send 4 emails to MHC before they actually received my change request.

                  One, running a 12 minute 1.5 mile isn't all that hard. Just about anybody who puts in the effort to run the 1.5 in 12 minutes will get there.

                  Two, and more importantly, If you can run a 12 minute(or better) 1.5 mile you give yourself breathing room should/when you pull a muscle, tweak an ankle, wrench a knee or otherwise injury yourself to the point you lose time on the run.

                  Running a 14-15 minute 1.5 mile leaves you with no room to spare if/when you get hurt.
                  As of last night, got my run time for the 1.5 down to 13:42. Have four more days to get it even lower. Did the 220y and 27 push-ups on Sunday, each took 30 seconds.

                  Anyone else going to be at Markham Park next Tuesday for the PFT2?

                    • I have a question, I took my exam in Miami (12/10), I took SWB (Brownsville, TX) and I am living in Pittsburgh, PA. I met the B investigator here in Pitt (01/07) so anybody know if in cases like this for example, I will have to take the poly here? and where am I suppose to take the PFT2?

                      Thank you.

                        If you got offered a job, I'd bet $10 that you won't have to take a polygraph. They'll tell you when and where to take PFT2.

                          Edit: Drifting is right, since you were already given a final offer it's not likely you'll have to take part in a polygraph.

                          I don't think anyone could predict where they would have you take a polygraph, I know of people from NJ who had to drive to DC in order to take their polygraph, I think it depends on a few different factors.

                          As far as your PFT2 goes, you should have chosen a PFT2 location when you filled out your original TSL1 paperwork, I believe there was a Harper's Ferry, WV option which might be the location you chose since it's about 4 hours away, I don't know if there were any other options closer to Pittsburgh.

                          • Since I couldn't find the answer to this by searching the thread, here's a freebie answer to all of you who recently got The Call:

                            Can I transfer my 401k funds into the gov't equivalent retirement plan once I EOD?

                            Answer: Yes. Uncle Sam's version of the 401k is called the TSP (thrift savings plan) and you can transfer the funds in your 401k to it (as well as funds from your IRA or Roth IRA and other "eligible retirement accounts")

                            For more specifics, you can read the instructions that come with the TSP-60 form.

                              Thanks, but when I say Brownsville was the place that they offered me. I don't think that that's mean that they offered me a job already... Don't know,
