      What experience is necessary along with a BA in CRJ? Seems like the DEA process is fast.

  • Got the call for BAT 221!!

          Scroll up two messages

      • I just got the invite to attend the written assessment. A lot of people are saying it is easy, but unlike many other police department tests. Is there any kind of study guide or advice anyone can give me. Please dm if possible

          You should post in the 2019 DEA thread.

      • I recommend buying a SAT grammar book

        • Anyone familiar with other agencies exams such as CBP, ICE, HSI, FBI, ATF? How does the DEA test compare in terms of difficulty?

            Only HSI here. DEA is way easier.

            Taken all except ATF. Of the ones I’ve done HSI is wayyyy harder due to the math. Just an FYI HSI is ICE. They’re the investigations side. ERO is the immigration enforcement side of the house.

            FNG41YR Yeah i know lol ICE hires under ERO Deportation Officer and HSI Criminal Investigator. Thanks for the feedback on the exams.

        • Got the call for BAT 221! Took a year but well worth the time.

            Appreciate it, you will go over what your options are in the call from HQ.

        • For those of you who already finished your background and poly and heard back from HQ or your recruiter -

          How long did it take you to hear back after you were informed your background was complete?

            I was never informed my BI was complete I had to call OPM and check the status.

        • Hey guys! Long time lurker here, first time poster.
          I'm also in the 2018 group, and I just passed final PT and now just waiting on "The Call."
          Good luck to everyone and hope to see some of you at Quantico soon.
