      • I saw on the 911forums that another prospect had got the dreaded "thanks but no thanks" letter. He also felt it was the polygraph. Is it me or did anyone else have the poly examiner tell them they pass/failed immediately following the test? I was told I passed, but that it would be reviewed in DC and if any questions arose I would be notified, and possibly even re-examined. I have not received anything since my poly & physical Nov 2008. This waiting sucks! But I know that nothing is probably going to happen until post-inauguration. I guess no news is good news...

          i got the old, " im not allowed to tell you if you passed or failed, but i dont see forsee this polygraph holding you up. it has to get reviewed in DC though"

          • I actually left thinking I failed. The guy told me "I'm not going to lie to you. You had some responses to certain questions. I think you are in the acceptable margin but it is up to quality control."

            Translation. I think you're screwed but I don't want to break the news to you.

            However, I did pass. But I didn't know for 2 months;

              • i was never was officially told " you passed " the polygraph, they kept moving me forward in the process so i assumed it was a pass.

                  • The employer visit went well. Nobody threw me under the bus. LOL

                    Anyway, the investigator told me that he didn't make the hiring decision of course but he did tell me that he is writing a positive reccommendation.

                    I asked the guy how many BI's he's done, and he tells me tons.

                    Then I ask, how many people DIDN't get hired at this point that he had investigated. he tells me none.

                    Odds are good. It's too late to not get my hopes up now. If this thing doesn't happen, I am sure being set up to take it hard.

                    Anway, the home visit is scheduled for Next Tuesday.

                      I'm sure you've got it, man. The SAIC in my FO said the same thing. He said if you're in the BI phase you're "practically hired" unless something serious comes up in your BI. You'll get it, it just may take some time.

                            LOL I used to do the same thing all the time. Use the subscription feature on the forum. It will email you each time someone posts on the threads you subscribe to. If you have a blackberry/palm it can go right to your phone. Alot easier then checking the website every hour.

                            • No kiddin on the last couple of responses. I check this forum just about every day to see everyone's progress. I have heard the same thing about making past the Poly/Medical. Unless something is bad in the BI, you're pretty much on the road to employment, that's why it's killing me to hear freakin something!! No BQ letter yet so my sweat is not too heavy...
