      Seems impossible to fail....the bigger your bench the easier it will be.

  • Good to know, thanks

    • Just got an email from medical asking to have my doctor provide paper work on a prescription for treatment I use. Hopefully after I email the requested letter back I will get cleared and can finally move forward! Anyone have experience with this?

        Yes, they asked me to provide similar items from my doc for further review. They gave me 30 days to complete. Just received an email 2 days ago that they received everything. They are just covering their bases.

        Yes, I contacted OPM and they completed and referred my background to the Marshals in 08/2017. Marshals haven’t adjudicated my background yet, so waiting on that THEN FIT*

        Wow. I wonder why it is taking so long to adjudicate.

        I’m a non-vet and don’t have a prior clearance so I’m assuming they are pulling prior clearances first.

        • All,

          I've been reading through the bulk of this forum and appreciate everyone sharing their timelines and experiences. It's been helpful as I continue through the process. I'm just waiting now to complete the drug test and FIT test. Has anyone heard about tentative dates for the FY19 classes? I'm assuming it's a little early for that, but just curious. Good luck to everyone and thank you for continuing to share!


          Thus far, my timeline has gone as follows:

          Applied August 24, 2017.
          Interviewed in DC February 5, 2018.
          TO May 15, 2018.
          Fingerprints & eQip completed June 20, 2018.
          Med Exam Part 1 completed July 11, 2018.
          Med Exam Part 2 completed July 16, 2018.

            usaftacp812 - I had 2 parts to my medical exam because the doctor was at a different location than where I live, so they broke it up into 2 days. I'm assuming you were able to get in, do everything, and see the doc all in the same day if you only had one day.

            I have a current Secret through the Army. Not sure if that will do me any favors in speeding up my timeline or not. Any insight would be appreciated, though.

        • I’m not sure if that will help or not. Some people’s processes have seemed to moved quickly with prior clearances.

              ATG1729 No, the UA is the only thing I have not done. And yes MinnyRaised, I have a clearance but it is below the USMS level.

          • Been a lurker for a while but I figured i’d Share where I’m at and what I know thus far.

            Applied: August 2017
            Interview: December 2017 (Arlington)
            TO: May 2018
            Equip/ Fingerprints: May 2018
            BI Meeting and Multiple References contacted: June 2018
            Medical: Completed July 2018

            So as of know my background is ongoing and I’m just waiting for my. FIT test and U/A.

            I currently hold a secret clearance with a fed LEO position and I have also held a public trust clearance in the past. I lurked on old forums and was able to dig up a phone number for OPM investigations branch and was told that my background is still on-going however it is moving quick because 1) Marshals requested an “expedited” investigation 2) I have had prior clearances. I attached the screenshot of the phone number to OPMs investigation branch and the instructions on how to get your status so hopefully that’ll help those of us in background limbo.

            i have a very good contact who is one of the most recent graduates from the DUSM academy and he was told that 6 classes for FY 19 as well as FY20 are approved. So barring any government meltdown or unfavorable background adjudication he explained that there is most certainly light at the end of the tunnel.

            Field office selections vary from recruit to recruit. He was only given. one option where as some of his classmates were given multiple locations. If you do turn down a location for whatever reason you remain eligible for the next round of final offers until the qualified candidates list gets exhausted. He also said that there are 94 district offices and 94 ways of doing things so do not expect any sort of consistency at this point.

            Crossfit style workouts and calisthenics are the backbone of the academy life so keep grinding at whatever you are doing. Academics itself are not the most challenging part. It’s the day to day grind of PT and the actual hands on practical examinations that break people. Plus everyone knows the FLETC chicken gets old after week one lol.

              Just applied to recent opening this morning. I wasn’t given an option to select duty location. Are we given a wish list prior to the academy or during it like dea?

              If I remember correctly, You will get a wish list email after you take and pass the online assessment test. You will submit it based on the region you want. My suggestion would be to put nationwide down and then cross that bridge once you get your final offers. Don’t limit yourself if you want the job. Plus the process is long and painstaking so sit back and relax

              V1PER hey brother, i am a fed leo as well with a current secret clearance. Got the TO around may. Completed all but UA and Fit. As far as background, not sure what is going on. I was never asked to submit sf-86. I called that number you suggested and all she could see was my completed perididocal last year. Stated that she couldn’t see “pending” investigations. Any insight on your part?

              cmor5150 I believe that the announcement that opened on 07/17/18 will only fill positions in the NW. This is coming from a good source in the USMS. I know there are other USMS employees here who might be willing to verify this. Just my two cents. I was prohibited from applying as I don't meet the criteria.

          • Good morning,

            Another job announcement just came open today and closes today.
            ANNOUNCEMENT CK10250620BD on USAJOBS.

              I have been trying to figure out why I had to resubmit all my Equip stuff again since i have a clearance already. I’ve been hearing a lot of other guys with secret clearances are just as far as me in the process yet haven’t submitted anything to OPM. There are even some guys on the forums from BOP with public trust clearances who haven’t had to do anything background related.

              I’m thinking that either your clearance is good to go or they will send you information to resubmit an sf 86 and go that route.

              Who knows at this point. I feel as though the FIT and UA are fast approaching and I am going to be ****ed if everyone starts getting final offers and I’m still in limbo with this background investigation. Hopefully someone on here knows the background stuff more than I do and can explain why my secret clearance is no good but many others are to good to go.
