There was a mix-up at my FO when I was scheduled to go to PHX for my P3. The same thing seemed to happen to a couple of folks here regarding their P3 travel to PHX, too, but we all got it sorted out by contacting HR at our local office. If you still haven't gotten your itinerary, I would reach out to your FO and connect with someone.


I second wskv.
Your local FO will be the one handling your itinerary/reservations. If you are concerned about not having info yet, then contact your local FO so they can provide you with additional information.

Well, it looks like I'm out. I just got an official notification that I did not pass my polygraph. I went in knowing that this was a possibility -- only 50% of applicants pass the FBI poly -- but I'm still a bit disheartened. I went in very fearful of getting a false positive, so much so that I had to speak with my therapist because it was starting to affect me more than standard anxiety. I had absolutely nothing to hide, and I was honest throughout; the equipment said otherwise, thus realizing my fear. When questioned about the specific items that threw up red flags, I was completely shocked. I was given a chance to "come clean" about anything I may have been hiding, but how do you come clean when there's nothing to admit to?

There's a lot of information on the internet that attempts to put the poly in a negative light, and, in a vacuum, a lot of them are probably right, but my experience with the FBI poly indicated that it is a vital part of the process and leaves very little room for error. I was really fortunate to have an examiner who wanted me to succeed, and I trust him and the process in their entirety -- I'm simply just taking this to mean that I'm not FBI material rather than blaming the testing process.

For those still in this cycle or anyone who happens to read this down the road, I wish you the best of luck.

Sorry to hear this! Don't let it get you down though, there are plenty of opportunities outside of the FBI.

I regret that you were disqualified based on polygraph results. I had a similar experience myself. I'm puzzled by your take on this, however.

You told the truth on your polygraph, yet you failed it. How does your experience indicate to you that the polygraph "is a vital part of the process and leaves very little room for error?"

If you truly regretted his disqualification, you wouldn't be here - like a moth to a flame - trying to help get others disqualified by peddling your personal griefing website against the Bureau, which is literally called 'Anti-Polygraph.'

For those of you that haven't encountered this bitter troll and value your chances of gaining employment with the FBI, keep the hell away from his website and DO NOT click ANY of his links.

I'm not here for a debate or conversation.

My empathy for wskv's plight is genuine. I am not here to "help others get disqualified" and I am not peddling anything.

You accuse me of being a "bitter troll," yet I haven't written an uncivil word to anyone on this forum, and I write using my real name. If you believe I've posted anything that is untrue or somehow misleading, please explain.

:( I'm so sorry, wskv. I know it probably doesn't really help that much right now, but you did nothing wrong, and I hope you hold your head up high.

I just found out I passed my poly yesterday. To say I am relieved is an understatement, because taking it was a lot more stressful than I thought it would be! Now just have to wait..........

Stupid question. Does anyone know when the 2019 IA application process starts? I thought it was August, but I haven’t seen anything.
