    You are about the same weight as I. On some day I weight 125 and others I tend to reach 130. It doesn't help when I run everyday for 30 minutes during my lunch break...my wife is stuffing me down with cream of wheat every morning.

    • I am just now waiting to do my Oral Board next week and I applied in February 09. I believe that the Pre-employment forms, Qualifications, Medical Exam, Structured Interview, Drug Screening, Background Investigation, and the Fitness test are all reviewed by separate departments. That is why some people get through the process quick and others do not. You have to remember we are working with different people throughout the United States. I could be working with a guy on the East coast and another guy could be using a guy on the West and I guarantee they do not work at the same pace.

I see some posts about people who were put in TSU and haven't completed the background investigation yet... also, after checking my dates, I was put into TSU without my background investigation clearing yet... how do we know when our BI is cleared and we are REALLY good to go...? Thanks.

        Since I got the green checkmark in CASS before I ever met with my BI I knew I had an interim clearance. ONce I got to TSU I emailed MHC to ask about my BI and they told me it was fully cleared. So that is how I found out.

              Cool...I'm beginning to feel like a normal person.
              I used to weigh in at right around 125, but the last two years put me up to 140, and then 5 months in the gym put me up to 165. Keep at the weights and the running, and eat as much in healthy nutrient-rich foods as you can, and you'll be golden. Better light but fit than fat and unable to run--you'll last twice as long in any cardio-intense activity.

                  I am no expert here, but with the backlog in TSU and the new applicants who have yet to see TOs, I am feeling like it is going to be a long while before the next announcement.

                        • I didn't get my TO for a month. Actually I wasn't expecting it, because I assume I failed the test when I got the NOR. The wording on the first sentences of the NOR was confusing. I was shock that I received a TO a month later. I thought it was a mistake or something. After re reading over the NOR, I found out later that "rating" is the actual score... I guess that incident help me get passed the waiting of my TO.

                            When my NOR came in the mail, my husband called and asked if I wanted him to open it... so I said yes. He did.. then mumbled over a few lines and finally says "it says you got a 5" I about had a heart attack, LOL

                            Few seconds later he says "oh, wait nevermind... wrong section"
