  • Today, I got a voicemail from someone with the US Dept. of Treasury, and he said that he was conducting part of my background.

    I'm just curious why the Treasury Dept. is doing this?

    Hopefully, I don't owe them any money...

      I'm not sure what the deal is with that. My BI had a treasury ID, but he was from a private agency. I think they get authorization to do that so people will talk to them and it makes them more "official".

        • They are contractors, usually retired federal agents. Also, some BI's are done by private companies that are contracted and some are done by BPA's.

            • I failed the fitness test. Can I reactivate when I am ready to retake the test or do I have to wait a certain amount of time?

              • While I prepare for the Academy, I would like to try to learn Spanish on my own. I am thinking about using Rosetta Stone's 6-month online training for $200. Have any of you used Rosetta Stone? If yes, what did you think about it?

                    If they didn't schedule the fit and medical test on the same day as your oral, then no. If they did, then yes, you better be ready to go.

                        Then don't worry. Dress to the nines and good luck!

                          No point in reactivating your application until you are able to pass the academy. The fitness test is a cakewalk compared to the academy and the field. Spend six months or so getting your body in shape then reapply.

                            I can vouch that the field is much harder than the Academy, that which is vastly more difficult than the silly fitness test.

                            Eat better, run, do your push-ups and sit-ups, get in much better overall shape and THEN re-apply or re-open your case. The worst thing you can do for yourself is be out of shape at the Academy and throw away a great opportunity by failing out OR worse yet getting to the field and physically hurting yourself permanently.

                                If you wait until you EOD the government will pay for the program.
