I haven't heard if I passed medical or drug screen yet either. Still waiting for invitation to complete E-QIP.

Hey y’all. Had a quick question.
Since the DI position does not require a physical test and the academy does not focus on physical ability (I believe), what are the medical evaluations looking for; does anyone know what would be a red flag?

Also, how do you all know that you passed medical? They found something on my EKG that they didn’t end up referring me for, but otherwise I haven’t heard anything since early July to confirm receipt of my completed eQip.


Good luck to you guys, we’re so close yet so far now! (Also LINY22, hope everything turns out ok for you!)


Thanks Catie! My doctor ran some tests and everything came back normal. The DEA asked for my doctors findings and he has to fill out some forms so I’m just waiting on him to do that so I can send it back to the DEA.

I’m guessing it’s more of a liability thing. When I worked for the VA they made us go through a physical also, I think they’re looking for major issues like risks for heart attack or more serious issues like that, not just your fitness level. Just a guess but I’m not in the best physical shape and I passed so hopefully that’s helpful!

Heard from the Background Investigator yesterday, scheduled my background interview for next week. Anybody else hear anything?

(I think they’re moving quick because of my location, smaller city.)

Hopefully soon! I’m sure once this interview is done my progress will stall and I’ll be back in the same waiting boat lol.
