      Like Precious said, the step test. It's 5 minutes at 120 cadence. You should practice it a few times. Also practice everything in order. I can tell you, I know some people that the lift lower test burns out there legs and they have trouble with the step test. Personally being old and out o shape (specifically a big belly) I have trouble with the sit-ups. I know the on pft2 the sprint will effect my sit-ups (plus I've practiced the pft2 straight through and know I need work on sit-ups. I'm also a little concerned of the transition from performing on my treadmill (which keeps the the pace for me) to an out door, unpaced, run. Anyway, practice and you should be fine. If a 40 year old with a 44" waste can do it, you can do it. Cheers :-)

      • So I checked CASS this morning and I'm all green! It's been one hell of a process and I'm so glad it's done. I was hoping to get "the" call today but I guess not. Hopefully tomorrow.

        Anyone have an idea of how long it takes to get the call after you pass the drug test?

          How did you get referred to the scheduling unit 3 months ago if you just met with your BI last month? Had you met him before? If not that's probably why, they never started your background until recently.

An hour after she was born and I was sitting in the recovery room with my wife and I got "The Call". I got offered Newark and JFK, which was a bit of a drive from South Jersey so Philly would be an ideal choice for me. I inquired about Philly and asked if there any spots available. They put me on hold and it came back and said they had A spot available. It was like a miracle, I got Philly and my new born daughter all within an hour of each other.
              I have my final fitness in WV on the 9th. Has anyone gone to the final fitness yet? I was wondering if this was indoors or outdoors as the weather looks to be pretty nasty Monday morning.
              Congrats on both!!

                Thank Chrisarias, I got response from Case Manager, they allow me to amend my e-qip. According to my attorney, I have nothing to worry about, I guess the process will take even longer for me if *knock on wood* being DQed . been trying so hard and now this.

                    I only received a summon to court for arraignment, according to my lawyer, it is embezzlement charge they are filing. I have nothing else, no drug, no drinking, no smoking, not even parking ticket, only one traffic ticket more than 8 years ago when I learnt how to drive. I really dont like those corporations

                        I think as long as you're not found guilty of anything you'll be fine. Anyone can accuse someone of anything. Be patient. But I understand UR frustration.

                                I would be outright flabbergasted if the agency allows you to proceed with a pending potential misdemeanor conviction looming over your head.

                                At best, you're probably going to see your application get shelved until there is a final resolution to the charge(s) you're facing.

                                If you're convicted/plead guilty, that's likely the end of your application.
