        My PFT2 is on Wednesday and I'm guessing we are in the same class unless they have 2-3 CBP classes starting at the same time.

            If i am not mistaken, on a track the end point is exactly the opposite of the starting point for the sprint. So pretty much half the track length.

                  Most classes start mid-week.

                  It gives the agency more options in scheduling travel time without having to pay out comp time, overtime or having to make creative scheduling changes.

                    Indeed. A high school track is a 1/4 mile, so 1/2 a track is 1/8 mile.

                      I would even add to that and say the pushups and sit ups take a bit out of you too in terms of your breathing leading up to your 1.5 mile. It's highly recommended to (and almost necessary) to practice the entire test in order to accurately gauge how you'll really do. I was surprised how winded I was after doing the sprint, push ups, and sit ups and still had the 1.5 mile to go the first time around.

                          For me CASS just went green. Only time they emailed me about medical was when I needed to retest my vision.

                            • YoungCBPOApplicant,
                              In the same boat with you or at least I was until you got the call. Took the test pretty much in the same time period (Nov 2013), so Im hoping my call will be soon.
