      10 pounds huh? I can see how that'd be tough.

      We tested and had our BI's at the same time girly. Waiting is fun isnt it?

Alot of people say its nothing, but until you see alot of the candidates you wont understand. They are good people and would be good inspectors, but they couldnt manage that run or the push ups.
          I think what we'd start seeing is numbers and percentages more like Border Patrol. Instead of being roughly 20% female, OFO would drop to the roughly 5% female ratio that BP has.

          As far as everybody else goes...most would adjust. It would just force new applicants off the couch sooner and to workout more pre-pre-academy. Not necessarily a bad thing...especially for those working the land borders and seaports.

            My problem will be the push ups, I have always done those darn girl push ups and lets just say my husband is still Rollin on the floor while working with me on this issue, lol.
            Keep working at it. It pays off in the end.

                  • Guys...this is an open board. Do you really want the Mexican drug cartels to know what or if you carry a back-up weapon?

                    All things firearms will be answered for you once you attend the academy.

                    Plus, it's all been discussed before. If you bothered to search it out, you'd find those answers.

                          You can FLAG or REPORT any post (providing the reason for it) and a MOD would most likely delete it. You can use several reasons like LANGUAGE or SENSITIVE INFORMATION to have the post deleted, but it should never come to that in the first place...
                          WE need to practice some sort of restraint as applicants when it comes to wanting to know every single detail of the "JOB", we need to focus on supporting each other through the hiring process, and only ask general questions about the "job" itself... Because when you get the job you'll find out all the details you need to know...

                          I know that it could be somewhat exciting to get your TO, and you feeling overwhelmed, and wanting to find out everything there is... but everything at its own pace and time.
                          Good Luck to all of the New applicants beginning the process!...

                            • From another poster on the Delphi board...

                              The new PEB graduation standard, starting 01 OCT 2009:

                              1.5 mile run 15:00 or less

                              220 yard dash 45 seconds or less

                              24 consecutive pushups in less than 1 minute

                              12 inches minimum for the sit and reach


                              A 12 inch sit and reach is quite humorous, from looking at the PEB chart that is somewhere well under the bottom 5% of males aged 35-39.

                              Still...an improvement from what we have now. I'm not holding my breath until it's implemented though.

                              • "What is the sit and reach?"

                                86 that question. I googled it.
