        • Can't believe 6 failed the 1.5 mile. That's so much time. And it's 15 in academy. Got my final FGS tomorrow, this is the big one. Time to bring it to the house. Keep working out guys, never give up!

            It depends if you are older dorms where I am or newer the Taj. Mine is a 19in TV I think Taj is a little bigger. They aren't great but depends how much you watch. Yes Internet for every device. So separate payment for laptop, Internet TV, phone, tablet, etc. You can pay hourly, daily, or monthly. I paid monthly. There's different speeds. Just get the fastest. It's not bad in my dorms. 50 a month but if you buy 3 months it's 120 which I did. Worth it for one device.

              1.5 miles in 11 minutes 17 seconds.
              It was 17 of us and 8 people failed unfortunately
              ; (...
              Guys you've gotta keep training harder and harder everyday.
              This is pathetic. Considering how long some of us have waited, and it isn't like anyone is applying and finished with the process in two months. It isn't some grab a random person off the street to see if they can do it. These people wanted the job, and weren't prepared. Unbelievable.
              All checks: Summer 2014 (No PFT2 or referral to SU yet at the point)
              14-2 posted: See SE, re-apply. Take test. Wait for stuff to roll over.
              Jan: Find out no more SE hiring despite **many vacancies** listed. Had to choose new region.
              Provisional Clearance: June 4th
              Still waiting

                Wait, so what is it for PFT 2? I thought it was 15?

                  I can believe it.

                  OFO tends to draw a eclectic crowd, some of who aren't big on fitness.

                  Plus, there's way too much "good advice" being posted out there. Suggestions like train for the minimums or statements like claiming the standards are a joke really don't do anyone any good and just encourage select applicants to do far too little in physical preparation and take the physical challenges far less seriously than they should.

                    Actually you can look at it two ways. Ofo could have very challenging standards because it's one of few agencies that has same standard for both sexes. I wouldn't say it's a joke or that it's challenging but if you put in the effort you will get results.

                        Virtually all federal agencies have the same standards regardless of gender or age.

                        What has separated OFO in the past, and to a large extent in the present, is that OFO has modified it's standards to attract women, minorities and the "aged".
                        Granted, the age issue has been made significantly less relevant since 2008 and the onset of 20 year 12D retirement. Still, much of the standards of today are holdovers from the days when the agency actively targeted those men and women above the age of 37.

                        Look at Border Patrol. Same fitness standards regardless of gender or age. More difficult fitness standards than OFO.

                        They're 95% male and 95% White/Hispanic. I don't think that's coincidental.

                                Good luck!
                                Ignore all negative stuff you've read about poly.
                                Be yourself. Tell the truth. Get plenty of sleep tonight. And wake up tomorrow with full confidence. Go over there answer all questions with honesty. Come back and tell you just pass the Polygraph.
