The short answer is it depends like everything else in the process. How long do you have until you have to take it? How many days a week can you train?

For me, I was running one every Saturday morning at 0800 on the track that my field office used for the actual pft.

Just make sure the first time you take one isn't the actual one.

My interview isn't until October 7. I strength train 3 times a week including core and I run 3 times a week as well. No workouts on Saturday.

How did it go?


20 points + 3 bonus for pull-ups. I'd say it went pretty damn well! Very pleased with my performance but need to run more to get where I want to be on that 1.5 mile!


Nice job, I'm glad the process is finally moving again for you! Am I reading that right, that you can you get bonus points for pull-ups, even if you're not applying for HRT?

Greetings all, I've been lurking on here for months, finally made an account to chime in and say hello. I've been in the process for a while now and thought I was going to the July class, and definitely thought I was going to the Sept one, however it appears my application/package is stuck with the Pysch unit where its been for a few months since I had a psych eval done (i can PM more details). Is anyone else in a similar situation? Or current NATS/Agents had something similar when they were in the process?

I resubmitted my SA app and have a few questions if anyone doesn't mind helping me out. I believe you only get 2 opportunities to take Phase 1? I didn't pass the last time and should have requested additional time, but my AC said conditions cannot be taken into considerstion after the fact. Does that mean for that specific Phase 1 sitting or now for the retake as well?

Lastly, I saw my SA app processing date was updated from Under Review to Assessment:Phase 1 as of yesterday morning 8am (9/10/19). I never received an updated application status email or Phase 1 retake invite, is this because of the window between two sittings or can you elect to take your last Phase 1 retake sooner and it should here today? Hoping to pass and expedite this hiring process. Thank you all, wish you the best!

I believe it's three months from the time you fail the Phase I assessment. They probably didn't review you since you've already been reviewed and were moved forward to Phase I previously. Who knows, they could send you an email to schedule your exam but just like as with any part of the process, you could receive an email and then wait months for the next step of what the actual email told you.

Thank you, I thought there would be a wait as well but I did see it go from "Under Review" to "Assessment: Phase 1", yet haven't recieved anything so I assume it'll come when the window closes or something.

I would say dress like you want the job. I'm sure the recruiters will be in suit and tie so you may as well do the same. They are there to assess you and your packet and everything they learn that day is what will be used in their recommendation to HQ on whether or not to rank you competitively. I say all that but there were a couple folks who showed up without ties and one guy wasn't even in a traditional suit and he was moved forward. I hope that helps.

Just received my M&G 2 days ago for 9/25. Extremely excited, can't wait to show them what I'm about. I'll be in a full suit and tie without a doubt. I believe you should dress to impress, you want your first impression (even if it may be your last, to be a good one). A while back I read something about scheduling a PFT test before PII. Anyone know if this is happening now?

Hey! I see you are from NYC. Me too. I had my MG. Definitely suit with the TIE. Not sure if the guys/girls moved forward but some where very sloppy dressed and one girl wore bright yellow jacket. No idea about their rank but....HR highlighted that suit with the tie.

You will have fun! It was cool event.

Just wanted to share my somewhat unusual position for whatever it may be worth. Some weeks back, my AC asked if I wanted to take another PFT in September (today) in case I got lucky with my BI being done by the October class. I of course said yes, took it and passed. However, my AC also said that my background is still in the early stages so October doesn’t seem to be likely. Moreover, the January class is about a week beyond the 120 days from today, so this PFT won’t qualify unless HQ makes an exception.

Not necessarily an important point to this post besides understand that it’s such a gray area towards the end of the hiring process, and continuously stay in shape because you may end up taking multiple preQ’s.

I asked my AC during my M&G and she indicated that they aren't requiring any of us (folks processing through our FO) to take a PFT until it's conditional offer time at the earliest.

The same exact story for me. Was invited to take the preQ today and was told just Incase background comes back before the October class. I was told today after passing my preq that October was still up in the air and didn’t seem like it was likely and January would be more realistic and that I would have to take another preQ. I still keep my fingers crossed for the October class but they way they sounded, chances are slim for me.

I guess I will be doing another preQ. Does anyone know if the October class is full already? This would be a good info to have for planning purposes.
