    Recently applied. I've been working out specifically for the fitness test. I'd rather barely pass than not pass by a long shot. Excited for this long process.

    From Ohio.

      Interviewed this week in Philadelphia and fingerprinted right after. I was told to contact the office when I am ready to complete the PTA.

        From CA but currently stationed in TX for 6 months for military training.

        Recruiter from back home told me I could attend MAC in TX. I'd sent HQ an email requesting the dates last week but haven't heard anything back.. Anyone else on the same boat?

          I submitted all of my paperwork in August and the recruiter told me I was in the system. I received an email today about testing later this month. When I confirmed I could attend the testing I was told there are no longer any spots available. Anyone have experience with this?

            No I haven’t heard of that happening before, that’s a huge bummer. My invite made it seem like I already had a testing spot reserved, it was just up to me to confirm before the date and time mentioned in the email. Quick turn-around though on getting an invite, hopefully you’ll get another one soon.

            I was told that for the Louisville Office but i called him and he fit me in. He said it was a space issue and if I didn’t mind being cramped a little then I could attend so I don’t think it’s a problem with your application. I think it’s just a logistical issue with the size of the offices. When I went we were all packed in a small conference room but it worked fine.

          I met the minimum requirement per HQ's determination but I'm a bit concerned whether or not I will make it through due to my short experience. Does anyone know if the hiring board cuts people for lack of experience even after the initial review? Thanks in advance.

            plenty of people have and are making it through with minimum experience. If DEA deems your qualified, all you have to do is excel the rest of the process. Dont overthink.

          First time Post, long time viewer. Here is my timeline so far:

          May 2017 - Written exams completed. Was told I failed the exam.
          November 2017 - Was notified that the exam was re-evaluated and that I actually passed the exam. Was already called by another agency and accepted the offer.
          September 2018 - Re-applied to the DEA.

          Lets see what happens this time around.

              Mobile Assessment Center
              It is where they do the written test, interview, and physical fit test all in a few days. Expedited process.

            I was wondering how long it took to hear back once you responded to the MAC email? I emailed Sep 11 indicating that I wished to participate in a Feb MAC. I have yet to receive a response.

              I emailed august 12th or so for the November Mac and just got an email last night. so i'd guess about a month or so prior they will respond.

              Last night must have been the night to respond because I too heard back about my MAC inquiry.

            Recently passed the written phase. Being processed out of Louisville Ky. The RAC told us that “60% of the agency is retirement eligible and the floodgates are open for years to come” I’m hoping to get through all remaining phases in November at mobile assessment. Anyone else hearing similar talk? My recruiter said he wanted to get everyone he’s processing into a January class.

                Nope. I attended the New Haven MAC back on July 29. I submitted my COL docs a week or so later, but nothing since.

              Anyone applying from the Phoenix Office for BA2018-1?

              I submitted my application and paperwork back in May. Emailed the recruiter a month ago and she told me they are still reviewing applicants. The announcement is closing Monday so I'm hoping things start moving soon.

                  Hi guys. I applied with the STL FO a few months ago and the DC SA recruiter emailed me back asking for some transcripts. Not sure what comes next but I'm excited that there is at least some minor interest in me. Hoping to get into the pipeline soon.
