          Curious to as if any one also from 14-1 and from East Coast was scheduled to take it locally or in DC.

          Thanks.
          14-1 applicant... Got a call last month to do my poly in Detroit this month. Got it changed to DC. At least you got a phone call. I converse via email & I'm waiting on the guy to respond

            Based on that video, it doesn't look like it's 6 feet from center to the outside line either. If that video is correct it is 6 feet total, so 3 feet to each side from center.
            Another thing I noted in the package... The description of the lift lower test doesn't say you have to turn, but the pictures seem to imply you lift, turn 90 degrees, lower to the table, remove your hands lift, turn back 90 degrees and lower to the floor, remove your hands, repeat. Can anyone confirm if I am correct or not on this?
            Also, try the step test. That 120 beat per minute cadence is way above most step tests. I found a free on-line metronome the other day and tried it, and I did it, but was sucking hard (of course I am 40 and 80lbs over-weight :-)
            Also, also, there is a good youtube video about increasing your push-ups (one for situps also). I am at work, so can't post the link, but search you tube for- how to increase your push ups by 300% (or it might be 400%) - and it will come up.

            Good luck.

              • If you're a woman and working with Border Patrol interests you, applying to the BP under the current female only announcement might be a quick way to a job.
                The BP is roughly 5% female. If they're serious about bringing up their numbers to reflect more like OFO or many other LEO agencies, that means they're looking at nearly 3000 new female hires before they reach comparable numbers to OFO.

                • Has anyone on this forum picked the Northwest area? I started this process 14 months ago and my SF86 is in the security office. ( have 4 green check marks) I Know it takes a while but I think it was been put on the back burner due to the mass hiring of the 2000 officers in the critical areas. Any Thoughts??

                                Thanks for all the information. I looked into the step test and it says it's 6 feet to each side and the tapes are 10 feet long
