Luckily, I too have a decent paying job and can play the waiting game also. The result will roll in, I know that; I just wish someone on here got the 'yes' already...

@Inc95, @ Nick_CPA, and anyone else who has already passed Phase II-- first off, congratulations and I hope you do well going forward. Could you comment, within reason, on how you thought you did on the second exam? Did you finish everything, were you surprised with the result? What were your thoughts afterward and did you think you did well enough or not so well?

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?




My results came in mid afternoon, around 3-ish.

For me, I thought Phase II was decent. I finished everything, though I didn’t focus much on spelling/grammar. I pretty much wanted to be persuasive as much as possible (that’s what I learned when writing essay’s). I thought I submitted sound work when leaving PII testing.

I was surprised in the aspect of checking my email randomly and seeing the email.

Also, I’ll be browsing through this thread to get updated on you all’s results.

One thing that calmed my nerves was remembering that, no news is good news. Stay hopeful.

Does anyone know if the FBI pays for our travel to do the Phase III interview? Also, when does the PSI testing and polygraph come into play? Will that be at a FBI field office?

I found this information in the IASP manual -

Travel Arrangements for Phase III Applicant Coordinators are responsible for:

• Making all travel and lodging arrangements for an applicant processing within their area of region (AOR) to attend Phase III testing. It is the responsibility of the AC to secure the most cost-effective and efficient mode of transportation for the applicant.

• Completing any travel budget preauthorization requests or forms, as required by the Finance Division (FD), on behalf of the applicant prior to travel and must assist in completing any necessary forms or vouchers once travel is completed. Expenses will be reimbursed using the standard government rates that are listed on the GSA Web site.

I'm just not sure how to take that. Any thoughts? Anyone hear back about Phase II today?
Applied: Oct 15 2018
Phase 1: Dec 27 2018

I havent heard back about PII yet and dont expect to hear anything until the work week starts again. It sounds like the Bureau is paying for PIII - all the more reason I need to get out to my local FO and see if that is where my AC would be if I get one.

Inc95 got the thumbs up for PII, but I dont know if the email details for PIII (or location) have been sent yet.

I'd like to know as well. I was an applicant in 2006 and had the poly at the FO but that was for one opening not multiple. Also for the testing they had me still living in my hometown where I first took the P1 in 2016 so I wonder if they'll try to schedule me for my poly in the same FO and make me jump through hoops to change it.

Amazing! When did you take the test?





@Dune26 , yes I passed Phase II. Just got my results today. Btw, I’m in the NYC area, so hopefully I get to see some of you all soon!!!


I'm also in the NYC area and took the exam on December 15th but no word yet... I'm thinking that each applicant's exam is sent to a/some random IA(s) in offices all over the country. My status on the applicant portal also hasn't changed. Hoping to get some news one way or another!

Took mine on 12.15. I'm in Vegas. I haven't heard anything yet either. I'm religiously watching the FBIJobs page though....and checking my emails.

They pay upfront for a plane ticket if you're a certain distance from the interview site. I live in Arizona and my interview was in San Diego, so the FBI paid for a round-trip ticket and the hotel. They reimbursed other travel expenses and a per diem rate of about $50 or $60, I can't remember. However, if you live in the local area where your interview is held, travel is on you.

I found out I passed Phase III about a week after doing it. I received a CJO a few days after that. Then about two or three weeks later, I had my PSI at the local Resident Agency (resident agencies are smaller offices that fall under field offices, from what I was told). Then about two weeks later, I had my polygraph at the same Resident Agency location. Now I'm in the background investigation. That's when the real waiting starts. I've been in it since September 2018 so I'm hoping I hear some good news in the coming months. I know some have waited only 4-5 months, while others have waited 2 years.

I hope this answered your questions. Good luck to you!

Applied: 9/17
Phase I: 2/18
Phase II: 3/18
Phase III: 9/18
CJO: 9/18
PSI/Poly: 10/18
BI: 10/18
Cleared: 3/19

Are you on the East Coast? I'm wondering if they aren't also reviewing them regionally. I tested 2 days before you but haven't heard anything yet.
