  • I meet with my BI here in about 3 hrs. Made all of the copies that he asked for, plus included a few extra things that he didn't. Such as a copy of my security clearance that I had while I was in the Military.

    I will update this afternoon after i meet him, to let everyone know how it went.

    • Meeting with my investigator tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, my hearing exam didn't go to well today, so I'll see what happens.

      On the form for my audiologist one of the tests says "All speech recognition tests must use recorded word lists." At the facility they did not have a recorded word list, instead she spoke the words to me. The audiologist left that part blank on the medical unit form, but on the instructions it states that the hearing form must be completed in its entirety following noted testing guidelines. Incomplete responses will result in discontinuation of the medical review process. She wrote the results of the spoken words on the form but I'm stressing because I don't want to be dropped.

      Has anyone experienced this? Would I be dropped because of this & what should I do?

        I would email or call the medical unit so they can advise you appropriately. YOu don't want to risk it.

          • i went through that step. it clearly states in the directions that u must complete all the tests and MAKE SURE THE TESTING SITE CAN COMPLETE ALL THE REQUIRED PARTS. the reason why it cant be spoken is because they set the tone of the words to an exact level.. call the medical dept and find out what they say. tsu for buffalo also.. there are a ton of audiologist in buffalo that have the word list recording.. let me know how you make out.. good luck

              So you've left us hanging. Was it an offer?
              Sorry.. No offer. It was a call telling me I have 30 days to pay off a $10,000 debt. If i become UNSUITABLE than I wont be able to apply for a federal job for 3 yrs. If I withdraw my application I will be able to apply when there's another opening. So lets see what I can come up with in 30days

                      No, youre final suitability determination comes from IA in washington. Youre final job offer comes from the MHC.

                        Are you behind on payments on this debt? Just curious because I have a some debt of my own that I am trying to payoff but hope it doesn't negatively affect my background.

                          Thats what I thought, but I wanted to confirm.

                                Damn! That's a lot to ask for in such a short amount of time. If you don't mind me asking that 10k they want you to pay off, is that "bad debt" Meaning, a charge off account or collections?
