      • Just took my CVSA today in Sacramento. The officer doing it came back and only said one question showed anything. I told her it was truthful. She didn't say pass or fail. When do I find out and is that a good sign?

          I believe it's just an indication for your BI to look deeper in to whatever the question was referring to on your PHS. I'm sure it has a lot to do with what the question was but also not an expert on the matter. As long as you are truthful 100% all the way thru you will be fine.

But being the next class starts in 12 day (only 7 more working days) from today, I would imagine that the June class is about full or they have contacted those that would be a last minute add with a "if we invite you to the June class could you accept?" already. But I don't know one way or the other just guessing. On the other hand, how much have you kept you employer in the loop thru the process? They should have enough contacted by your BI durning your background. Will they be surprised if you gave the notice?

        Now with that said hopefully we get the opportunity to meet in person at the academy and you get to know that I am not the type that would ever want to sound nor intentionally come off as condescending so please don't interpret it that way. Good luck to you and hope to see you in October!
        You are almost there man, keep your head up. If someone falls out, you might get an invite at the last second. Stay prepared and best of luck!

            Did you change your answers when questioned by the CVSA administrator?

            If you fail the CVSA, they will tell you on the spot. Therefore, you should be good to go.

          No. I'm not saying I got kicked out I was just curious. I just had it yesterday and haven't heard anything.

            I've personally never heard of that happening to anyone. What did the CVSA administrator say after the test?

          Not much. I asked if final interview was next and she said probably that usually they don't waste time doing cvsa unless backgrounds were pretty far along. When she came back in she asked only about one thing. The two questions she told me to lie about one said I wasn't lying haha.

            lol you're good to go. I remember when they told me that I showed deception with two questions when I was being 100% truthful. She wanted me to change my answers but I didn't and I ended up passing the same day.

            My odds of making the October class are slim to none because I'm barely taking the PAT on 7/22. You'll be up there tho.

          What Division are you from, and when did you take your initial PAT/Written tests?

          How long did it take for them to send you a letter for the DQ? The only reason I ask is because I got DQ'ed at the end of April and I still haven't received anything.

            My status updated online to failed psych exactly a week after the interview and I received my letter within 2 weeks from the interview. Did you appeal the DQ?

          I didnt appeal it, I want to reapply and test in October. I might have to contact my former BI and see if they can complete the DQ.

            Once the BI send in the recommendation it all gets handled by the CHU. You can call them for updates. My first DQ took awhile (almost 4 months) I think that it gets reviewed by a couple people before it gets finalized. I betting that's what takes the longest.

            Were there any discrepancies or omissions on your paper work?

            That's whack. It was definitely not your fault and it could have been easily overlooked if they would have gave you an opportunity to explain. Your BI was probably very picky.
