      I think AZdeputy84 was one of the guys that got phone calls from a place(NY) that he hadn't listed, he'll have to confirm.

      Juey14 you mentioned that you got calls before from offices in your top 2. You didn't accept those spots?

      Avatar311....correct, I got the call from Manhattan which I never listed. Had to decline, just got lucky enough to get a second call and location.

      Tommy I never got the final offers unfortunately. They gave them to other people. I never got the HQ call, just the field offices call.

  • Yeah man that’s awesome

    • So for this FIT test are they still doing the one max bench press/ 1.5 mile run, Illinois agility run or are they doing the old pt test prior to going to FLETC?

        Same...Basic, State/local, and FLETC. There wasn’t a BDUSM Class when I was there though. It’ll be a pleasant surprise to me, lol.

        I'm not going to lie, I would yelled at for smiling during PT.

        They would be like, "We'll see if your smiling two hours from now."

        But, I was like: "This is great. I'm just happy to be here." LOL

    • Hahahaha yeah guys I'm right there with you. This time I went nationwide on my list to increase my chances. If they really have 96 slots and I don't get picked up, then it's not meant to be.

        Same here. If its not meant to be its not meant to be. Im worried about not getting a slot because my medical is expired. I got the locations, and good news email, then Friday afternoon they sent me a medical update due by the 26th.. I returned it same day but the medical office near my location was a month behind this time last year. Even if I get a quick turn around. they got to clear me and do the fit on me in August.

        All I want is a shot at the job. I hadn't even got a call from a field office yet..

        Verde123, I'm going to venture and say not to worry about medical because it is a "self-certification" form and you do not need to see anyone (FOH, your doctor, etc) in order to complete it (unless you did have some medical issue to update them on, then that is a different story). last go around, I was happy to be among the first group to take the PT test and never heard back, some folks didn't do fit until weeks later and got offers right after. At least one person had an offer prior to taking fit and one other person posted "I barely passed" and also got an offer. So what I'm taking from it is that if they really want you, you will get a call no matter what. Otherwise, I will know what it is like to have first round draft hopes and then end up going undrafted

        Sign me up as a free agent!

        Thanks for clarifying. I thought we had to at least see a nurse for the update. no changes health wise. (other than my BP when they send me an email) Im ready for the PT test. max pull ups and O-Course and all.

        If you call a local office to schedule a FIT how do you know it will get communicated to the hiring office?

        I don’t “know” anything, and may have to take it again. But my local office gave it to me last time, and should still have the contact info that they used 3 months ago.

    • I know you will not get contacted saying that you passed after every step but do they notify you when your medical clears? I had to send more Info to them.

        Someone on another forum (2018 announcement) said that he was contacted about medical status (after completion) but that's the first, and probably only, that I remember...they usually don't contact you EXCEPT for medical update forms (when your medical clearance has lapsed). The only "tell" that your medical has cleared, to my knowledge, is that you get called for fit.

        My medical was expired on the 11th. They sent me an email on the Friday afternoon on the12th (medical update form) and got back to me on the 16th saying that Ive been cleared and to look for future emails in the hiring process. So im like "Cool". Now its just a waiting game for the local office to contact me and get me to schedule the FIT. I got 3 emails last week. Compared to only 3 emails I received in the past 7 months, Id say that's a sign they are moving "quickly"

    • Sept.11 boys and girls....keep an eye on those phones and emails...

        Same. Done stressing. This is (from what I hear) the last chance for this application. It’ll happen or it won’t, but I’ve passed everything asked of me. Out of my hands now.

        Awesome!! We need more folks to take test so we can start getting some calls. Heck, even if I don't get a call ,I'll be happy to see the 2017 cert be used up

    • My second time taking it. I had another person with me that also pass. Few more weeks we will all know what will happen. Best of luck to everyone

        Over last three weeks: a total of 4 miles/5 times, so not a lot..but I'm about to try 5 miles, or longer, at least once a week and at least 4 times/week of high intensity (as if you were getting smoked by your favorite SGT) workout combined with weight lifting back to back.

        We can't get hurt prior to academy so I figured that 1×long distance/once a week wont let me forget how boring it can be and doing HIT is what is best for LE anyway (if poop hits the fan, HIT is where is it at).

        I've been doing 5-6 day/week workouts for awhile now trying to be prepared for *possibly* getting into the marshals. Alternating full body 5x5s weight days and ~1hr abs/pushups with cardio days (at least one long run ~6 miles and some HIT worked in on treadmill and asphalt). Started from being pretty out of shape and am now not worried about the PT test or FLETC... so its a lot of work but worth it.

        avatar311 made a really good point: Don't hurt yourselves - especially the week prior to going to FLETC!

        I lift heavy with super sets three days a week, run 3 days a week. Nothing crazy, I got superior on everything but the run. I’m not worried about pt, just trying to stay healthy so I can actually make it to FLETC. We have all of cipt to get dialed in.

    • Is The September 11th class the last one for the fiscal year?

        Was nothing bro. I asked a question and realized that it was just encouraging guys to ask specifics about my FIT test and scores. I’m not super comfortable posting that (not trying to be a litmus test), so decided that the question wasn’t that important.

    • Just got called for the FIT test! Taking it today.

        I have never received the mystical FIT standards, do you mind sending me (PM) the standards for youngest age group?

        man, it is feels like DEJAVU (from last time) watching people take FIT and hoping that more people take it so that they start offer process already!
