      B2018 some of my references were contacted already, but who knows maybe our packet is still being reviewed

      B2018 if it was turned in on dec 19 your references should have been contacted before that. Mine was due also on dec 19 and I know almost all my references were contacted and places where I have worked as well and lived.
      Josh2749 I would think that you should be contacted pretty soon

    What was the step completed prior to the recommendation?
    Last thing I've done was resubmit the RC-99 Form.
    On Dec. 27th my status moved to investigation phase I (which I originally thought that to be after oral board?). Today I scheduled my investigators interview for the 8th. Which I'm just to assume to go over everything once again

      This is a third party BI who will come and interview you, your parents, past employers/coworkers and references. They’ll also check your social media, credit and hometown PD. Then they’ll sit down with DPS to close the investigation and recommend they offer you a date for the board or not. Then DPS will conduct its own BI if you do well at boards and pass the psych and physical tests.

      ColbyJ, I read from previous posts that they are doing backgrounds first to avoid people passing oral boards and then failing background investigation. Yes, it is a third party called discovery something and they check everything like troopersota said. On the investigation appointment, they do go over everything and clarify any concerns they might have. So after you meet with the investigator he will go and meet your neighbors, call references, places where you have worked and lived and so on. After passing BI phase one, then it’s oral board and if you pass the next day is psychological and medical exam from what o have heard. Then like troopersota mentioned BI phase 2 and I believe there is also a trooper visit.

    Yes, as WillyWonka stated, I've talked to some for A-18 and they said that all three are scored individually, but the min. is 70%. So if you don't make a 70% in one event you can make it up in the others.

        That's great, hopefully it won't be too much longer for you to get scheduled for boards!

    • Hello haven't posted anything here yet, just been reading. My BI phase 1 is almost complete. I was on the recruiting page today and I noticed the academy start date has changed again. Now the start date is June 10th. Any thoughts on that or what it means.

        I would see it as a good sign, meaning you will get an answer sooner . Had the board today and seems like they are moving fairly quick .

      • I'm still in BI Phase 1, just waiting on my boards. This may be a stupid question, but if we did the Row for testing, will we have to do it again, or are we going to do the Standard PFT when we get to the academy?

          Standard PFT

      • Question for you guy's. Are they doing BG 1 & 2 before the oral board, or just BG 1, then BG 2 after the oral board. Just Curious I am reapplying for A-19.

          • Hey everyone,

            So I passed board and my status now moved to “pending medical / psych results “. Honestly we aren’t allowed to discuss questions on the board , but what I can say is that you don’t have to study or practice for the board , besides maybe practicing your public speaking skills lol if you need to. Also mostly everyone passes as long as you receive above a 70% collective score from board members , now , what we were told is. That even though we all pass the board /medical/psychological, at the end DPS will see how many trainees it needs and draw a cut off score . So if they need 95 trainees like the academy that just started . Their cut off score was 85% average . Including the two writtten exams , rower, and the three scores from the board . So even though I’m always the optimistic person , we all just have to wait and see for the decision.

            Hope this helped answer some questions.

            • Currently waiting on background to be conpleted. I met with my investigator 2 weeks ago, so hopefully this week I'll get my oral board dates.
              Anyone else in the same boat?

                  I'm in the same boat. My investigator told me that they were backed up in Austin so who knows when the boards would be...

              • I met with my investigator before Christmas. I've been on Background Investigation Phase since Dec. 14th. A lot of us are on the same boat.
