    I took the written in 2011 and had my poly may 2013. There was about 1500 candidates from E128 that made it to backgrounds from what an email had stated from Jen Lo back in 2012. E128 does expire in Feb. but they are trying to get through all of E128 before the deadline. Hope that helps. Good luck to all.

    • To those in E128-04, did you take a medical test already? If so, what was that like?

        Took mines at SF General. Pretty much went in and they performed vision, hearing, ekg, lung, and blood. They also review your medical history with you.

          I hope you get the call soon! Do you know how they selected people to take the polygraph/psych/medical? Why people from the E128-04 list got to go forward with a step before you? Do they do it by exam score?

              • My BI had mentioned they did go out of order of the ranking scores for the E128 list. They were/are very limited on how many BI are working on all the packets and were overwhelmed and things just got out of order. At one point my hair sample from the drug test went missing too so they needed me to come in and do it again but found it when I got there.

                • I was told by Jen Lo that they won't go just on ranking/written score. She said they will take our oral board performance and PHQ and background packet all into consideration when they decide who to do backgrounds on.

                  I sure hope that's true.

                    For all the 129-01'ers here is the copied text from Jen Lo's email to me:

                    >" The earliest the Backgrounds Unit will contact you is in July. They will take your written, oral, PHQ and backgrounds packet into consideration. Not all candidates will be processed for a backgrounds investigation."

                    • The first part of that email is very encouraging because my written score was not that good. I was thinking it might be a year or so before I get to partake in anymore of the process. But the last part of that email from her is a little discouraging... I just wish we knew how many candidates were left

                        I feel ya... I was encouraged by the oral board consideration. I feel I did well. Pray that will help boost me.

                        How did you feel you did on the oral boards?

                            Ya I think I did really well on the oral board, the guy said that he liked my answers to couple of them. So that was good to hear. I hope the background packet will help boost me too. It's pretty clean besides stupid things I did in high school, and it shows my experience. Now we just have to sit and patiently wait haha
