    I squeaked by on my private doctor eye exam with 20/60 in one eye. Everything else is all good, and the other eye is no problem, it's just one eye I'm worried about. Will I be tested again during the medical exam, and if so, what happens if I end up testing as worse than I did at the private doctor? If they do test us again in the medical exam, what exactly is the purpose of having us go to a private doctor first?

    Also, UrHero, looks like we're in the same bunch and moving at close to the same pace - I applied in October as well and have my security interview on the 20th.
    congrats on your eye exam. I too have one eye that is not quite as precise as the other.

    I applied back in March or so, but was unable to attend the ELAC that expedites everything this past summer. I took the exam and interview last month and have just recently submitted the sf86...how long after you submitted the sf86 did it take to schedule the security interview?

      I'm doing my security interview on the same day I submit my SF86. I guess they're going to review it with me in the interview but I don't know considering its over 160 pages. They emailed me the day after they sent me the SF86 about setting up the security interview so I had to get everything filled out super quick.

      That's awesome, Graeli. My office is having me mail mine in.... I was expecting a date would be chosen to drop it off for review (like yours). Guess every office is different.

      Thank you! I'm going through a very small field office that isn't processing very many applicants so that may have something to do with the differences in how things are going for us.

  • Filling out SF86 ... where is everyone else in the process? Eager to hear some feedback.

      • Turned in my 86 and had my security interview today. Wasn’t bad at all, so now it’s on to the poly. The SA i spoke with said that theyre trying to speed up the hiring process to around 120 days instead of the year to year and a half it used to be. It’s been around 70-80 days for me so not quite sure if they’ll make it happen in 120 but it doesn’t seem to be too far off.

          He said mine will probably be around the middle of January because so many people are taking leave for the holidays, and most posts I've seen on here say it'll be about a month after your SI, but yours may be faster given that your SI won't be until after New Years and they're trying this expedited hiring thing. The agents that did my SUPER interview said we don't have a PT test until we get to FLETC. Not really sure why they push it that far along, but that's one less thing to worry about for now so I'm not complaining lol

        • Question for those that have completed the security form.

          Have done my eyes exam and have the form completed but Do I also need to go to the doctor for the medical papers that are in the security form or they do that once scheduled for the medical?

            Chuk1990 thanks just wanted to make sure, I will drop them off tomorrow at the FO.

        • Anyone know why the PT Test is administered 3 times? Is it normal to fail it the first time or something? It looks fairly simple on the website or is there actually more to it?

          Comment


          • Greetings,

            Are BI's completed and or initiated without notifying the candidate first? Or are you always notified first for introduction (the normal process)?

            • Dallas people don't lose hope. Call finally came for me. Now i'm in the process of deciding which FO will be best.

                Pretty much same locations as previous posters with the exception of Las Vegas and Reno. Those were not offered to me, instead I was given a couple locations in the midwest. All big metro areas.

                Just to refresh my memory, when did you take the Poly?

                @NWcountry 31... I've learned that timeframes don't really matter. Some have gone from application to hiring in 4-5 months, others waited almost two years. It's been more than 6 months since I took the Poly.
