I was in the absolute same boat, even down to the second I think 😂I wrapped up the best I could, hit the spell check button, and decided to just submit instead of timing out.

Regarding retaking p2, the following is from the careers page and makes me think that you start again with p2:

Quote:
You have two opportunities to pass this test. Applicants who do not pass their first attempt are eligible to retest one additional time one year after their first session. After two failures, applicants will be discontinued from the application process permanently.


Hope this helps!

I'm thinking that when (if?) the shutdown ends, most of us waiting on our p2 results might get them at the same time 🤷‍♂️

IAs shouldn't be involved in the shutdown though, right? I mean, several people have gotten their results in the past couple of weeks. I'm hoping IAs are essential and we will get our results any day now!

I've read (and re-read) the 2016 and 2017 IASP forums and it looks that if we get our results in under 90 days then we are way ahead of our predecessors.

My anxiety is based on having been referred for an 1805 NOAA job (which previous to this application was my preference) - but my heart is in working somewhere in the DoJ.

I also applied to the DEA IRS opening last fall and am hoping to hear from that one, as well. (nothing....shutdown?)

Understanding, however, the nature of the IASP I had to pump the brakes on reading up on things like the poly and BFTC until I get pass the interview (fingers crossed).

Did anyone contact their FO and arrange a M&G? I didn't due to my scheduling and the speed at which PI and PII occurred. If I make it past PII I am definitely heading to the Cincinnati FO for coffee.

As always; I'm pulling for everyone in the process and hope to meet a bunch of you at either midwest or east coast PIII.

Continued good luck to all and if I can leave you with a saying from my previous profession; Patiently Suffer and Suffer Patiently.

Cheers!

Who knows?

All I can say is that my attempts to get in touch with an actual person at HQ and my local FO to deal with my test issues have been unsuccessful. HQ literally doesn't answer the phone and my local FO told me that people aren't at work because of the shutdown, which is one reason why I haven't heard back from the official IASP email.

🤷‍♂️

Congrats! When did you test? I'm between Cleveland and Cincinnati. If I pass I may see you at the PIII interview.

Also, this sort of answers our question about the shutdown affecting selection....

Oh wow! A big congrats, @Inc95 & @Nick_CPA -- I'm glad to hear some good p2 news. I've read elsewhere that there is only a 40% passing rate on the exam, so you guys should definitely give yourselves some kudos.

@Bruce I guess it does! I'm glad to see that some assessments are coming through to answer that question for us. Hopefully you and @Dune26 will hear back soon.

I also hope you hear back soon, mst2018!

Seems like the turnaround time for the mid-December tests was around 16 business days, so roughly three weeks.

If that holds true, I should hopefully hear back late next week or the week after that...

Yeah, those guys only started hearing back in February the following year for P1. Didn't someone post earlier that there is a glut of 2016 candidates that the Bureau is still trying to place in classes? I recall the live stream video saying that each class only had 40 IAs to 160 SAs - surely, the obvious solution would be tweaking the IA ratio to include more candidates to reduce the backlog?

I hope that the faster turnaround time also extends to the BI, but can't think too much about that when my P2 pass/fail status is still unknown. :P

Time certainly seems to drag by when you are waiting, but then it flies as the status changes happen. My PI and PII happened so quickly and now it seems to be taking forever to find out my fate.

PII was completed on 12/18 so I know that time is counting down for me; good luck 12/16 folks!

Before I know it, the email will hit me and I will either meet some of you in person or get back in line and do it all over again next cycle.

Question for those with PII results; did they come in at 0100AM or sporadically throughout the day?

I can't figure out how to add comments or create my own posts yet, so if I did this wrong, please forgive me. I'll figure it out eventually. Anyway, I'm in central Ohio as well. I think those who are guessing they're going in order from date of application may be wrong. I applied on the very last day the post was open (10/15/2018) and received the invite for P1 on 12/13/2018. I took P1 on 12/28/2018 then P2 on 01/05/2019, so I am (like many of you) waiting on the pass/fail e-mail. I also do not think their selection process goes in alphabetical order because if it did, I would likely be in the top 5. I'm so excited yet so nervous. This process is truly a test to my patience. Thankfully I have a job that pays pretty well, so I can just hang out here until I hear back. Best of luck to you all! I'll be following closely as you continue to post your results. :)
