  • There is no advantage at all. The bare minimum is all you need.

    If you make it to the Academy, all you need is a 70% on the exams. The agency can care less if you ace every exam or make a 70% every time.

          I appreciate the response thank you. I'm flying out after the polygraph and didn't want to book my flight to early but at the same time don't want to be at JFK for hours waiting for my flight back home.

          Good Luck at FLETC.

            Is there any advantage for scoring high in each section or is the bare minimum requirement ok?

            • I heard somewhere that once you complete the PFT2 you can't switch ports. Anyone have some insight on this?

              • Once you receive a TSL for your region... If you get the call and you accept for that specific port, that might be it... You can always try and call MHC.

                • I took my test a month ago and haven't received my NOR.

                  I'm sure none of us that took the test right before the shutdown have received anything.

                  Should I email MHC and see what's up?

                  • Hi yoda, in regards to the polygraph, would smoking pot twice 9 years ago be a potential disqualifier.

                        As long as you disclose it, and it was simply twice... I don't see why it would disqualify you. It has been almost 10 years since you did it, which places you on the right timeframe.

                        • Finally, got my poly in a few weeks. This has been a crazy year but it's nice to see some light in the tunnel. Stay frosty everybody.

                              No, I had it scheduled a few weeks ago. But then it was postponed because of the shutdown. I rescheduled a few days after the government was back in service.

                                Are you doing your poly at JFK?
