    • Had my poly in April and it’s been radio silence since. I checked with the recruiter last week and my application is still ongoing so I haven’t been discontinued. Anyone have any ideas on what could be the hold up?

        I had my poly in June, and my background is done. I haven’t heard anything either, other than my application is still open.

        I’m in the same boat. If anyone finds out what’s causing the hold up then please share on the forum

        admm, have you gotten final forms/office of preference yet, or just nothing since poly?

        I got nothing BUT after I finished my poly in June, a month later I called HQ to see what the status of my background was and they said it was complete.

    • How soon do they allow you to leave the facility to go get haircuts, go home, etc?

        That first weekend, but I would advise against going home so early unless you live close by

    • Quick question for anyone who has taken fitness test - do your fingers have to point straightforward during the push-up portion or can you rotate them internally to angle them slightly towards your head? I get that they are supposed to be placed “outside the body” but the manual doesn’t address hand position. I ask because I typically angle my hands inwards some to activate the chest more, but I want to practice correctly.

        Straight out

    • What number are people calling to check the status of their background? Is it OPM or HQ?

        OPM.. if you google ”OPM background status” a number should pop up.

    • Has anyone heard if the August class is full yet?

      • Does anyone know the living situation at Quantico

          You get it at time of final offer. Timing seems to be different for everyone.

          Just to clarify they give you your initial field office when the job is offered? Not halfway through the academy?

          cbp1363 - Correct. They started doing first duty location at time of final offer with the March 2019 class.

      • Yeah we found out and got to pick 2 weeks before start..

        • I initially applied April of 2018 out of San Diego. Had to get my packet sent to DC office since I got FLEO job in DC and relocated. Took the written test in March 2019, passed. Was scheduled for DEASAMAC in DC this month, and just got an email yesterday saying there are no more spots at the DEASAMAC in DC for August...emailed recruiter and stated the DC Office has no tests scheduled at this time...just trying to get the interview set up to keep the ball rolling. Anyone else have this issue?

          Glad to hear other people are getting the call! Stay healthy and stay safe!

            Question - If you’re in a position like this where they don’t have any MACs scheduled in your area for the foreseeable future, can you just volunteer to do the next one available, regardless of location, and fly yourself there? Or are you at the mercy of your regional recruiter?

            Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, you can volunteer to do the next one, whichever you are available to do, regardless of location. If you want to fly across the country and do a MAC, and are able to do it, they will not stop you from doing it.

        • A recruiter came to my university and stated that they are hiring 300 agents a year for the next 10 years. Is this what everyone else is hearing?

        • PT Test Question: Did the DEA change the sit-up protocol like the FBI? (i.e. hands crossed over chest instead of behind head)
