Is there a waiver process? Or am I dead in the water and just waiting to hear on my denial because of that one frequency? Thanks, guys.

      They might send to specialist. They sent me for my abnormal EKG. Cardiologist cleared me. Now waiting for green check.

      • Hey all, just a question to those who took the PFT2.. I'm sure this has been asked before: with the push ups are they bent down watching to see if you touch the foam block underneath? I'm a little worried about going that far down... I'm in shape and all but have always struggled with push ups. I can do about 20 going 6-7 inch from the ground but those extra inches down are killing me! Any insight is appreciated, and if you have any pointers would appreciate that as well. Running, sit ups not so much an issue... I run 5 mi about 4-5 times a wk. also, what's a realistic time frame in seriously improving push ups in your experience? Thanks so much.

          I didn't take PFT2 yet. But I practice everyday. If you practice everyday or every other day. You should improve within few weeks.

          • Took my PFT1 yesterday at JFK. I passed with 111 points so I'm sure I passed lol. Tomorrow is my VBT, like I stated before this will be my 2nd go around so I'm hoping to pass it.

            Question for those who went through to the SI, any advice ?? I heard they just throw scenarios out and expect you to answer it. ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. thank you

                I am not sure. Did you send that to them? Also call the medical unit. They are very helpful.

                  • Man, I'm feeling behind the curve here. I had my PFT1 and medical about two weeks ago, and haven't heard anything about the SI or VBT or anything. Seems like a lot of you guys are getting it all scheduled at around the same time. Maybe had to do with my area? Anyone else Southwest/San Ysidro?

                    • I'm so embarrassed but when I got the call to do the pft1 and they said I had a two week window to schedule it, i couldn't do a single push-up. It was so pathetic. I practiced every single day and even took a foam block to work and would just crank them out. I ended up getting 17 at the pft1.

                      Whenever you get a chance just crank some out.

                        I also had the same time frame but I didn't practice with the foam and at the test yesterday I was able to do the minimum plus one not where I need to be but I'm definitely going to get on the ball for the pft2 hoping I get passing results on my pft1 from yesterday. What location are you going for if you don't mind me asking ?
