    drug screen?

    Hey guys new to the forum it's really a great site. I have a concern and was looking for little advice, especially from those that have finished the process(Springer, PSU and others). I had my home interview at the end of March and was told that the next step would be for my packet to go in front of the hiring panel. But, after looking through some of post on here, I've noticed the ones who have finished had a "drug screen" during the B.I. or shortly after. I was under the assumption the wiz test was at the medical. It's been over a month since the home interview and still no word on taking a drug screen. Should I call and see if it's something they've missed or just keeping waiting. I would really hate for something as small as a drug screen to keep my packet from going in front of the hiring panel.

    Any info would greatly be appreciated.

      I took the drug screen after the home interview and when my BI was just about finished. I think it is one of the last steps. There is no harm in calling the office and pointing out that you have not had your drug screen yet. Maybe they can find something out but my request to take the drug screen came from D.C. and not my local office.

            I've got a question for any of those who are in the SA process or are currently USSS SA's. I'm currently a Deputy Sheriff in Michigan, and about 9 -10 classes from my Bachelors which I should have done in less than a year. My question is; do you have to possess a BA before you can apply to the USSS or can you apply prior to completing your degree as long as it is done before you are offered a job? I was just curious because I've noticed that the process can take anywhere up to a year long before you are hired. Additionally, I looked into the NCIS and you are allowed to apply for a SA position with them up to six months prior to receiving your degree.

            Thanks for the info.

                      Who rides motorcycles in the motorcade, UD or SA? I think I remember reading its UD, but I wanted to find out for sure.

                        BTW, I thought the training in GA was very solid but should be more paramilitary.

                        How so?

                              I was just trying to get a feel for the "approximate" timeline when getting your results from the Poly. I know the saying, no news is good news. Anyone who says that they don't mind the waiting game is lying. It will be 1 month on the 19th since I took it. My guess is if I failed, I would know sooner than later, just a guess. I've been told 4-6 weeks. I was asked if I would take it again if they requested me to and I agreed. Still waiting. Any advice from anyone...Greatly appreciated.
