I just passed my PFT. I BARELY passed the 300. Literally within .1 of the cutoff time. How long does it take to get the CAO in everybody's experience?

I applied in October 2018 and have had first-time Go's on all stations. The best advice that I could give is to be yourself during face-to-face interactions, no matter what don't stop during the PFT and be completely honest about anything you're asked. I can affirm that you don't have to be perfect to get through the process. Just maintain your integrity and display your motivation to become part of what I have always perceived as one of the most prestigious law enforcement agencies in the world.

p.s. If you don't have much patience you should probably go find some. The process is a lengthy one so if you find yourself sitting around with nothing better to do than wonder when you'll get the next email then go for a run or do some pushups and situps, it'll help you out when you take the PFT.


I applied back in May 2016 and after failing P2 I am only now in the BI phase. Fast tracking from like 8 months ago and you’re doling out advice about being patient 😂! Anxiously checking emails is part of the fun!!. Hopefully I´ll see you in the September class.

Did everyone receive the "What to do when your background investigation goes long" email today?

I gatta say getting out of the military is shaping up to be the wrong decision as I watch my savings account dwindle and I get hit with a broken AC unit and a lack of Reserve orders. I'm envious of those of you who work a job that allows for things like a 2 week notice. This career change is up there with the hardest things i've ever done. I'd go back through selection 100 times if it would end this waiting game and get me a paycheck again.

Would one be penalized for having an obligation the same day as the offered M&G date? Has anyone rescheduled their M&G?

Also, some offices are starting to conduct the official PFT before Phase II now. Not after.

No, I was TDY when my M&G invite came and had to turn down 2 invitations total before finally being able to make one. Just let the Recruiter know and they will email you next time around.

Looking at your timeline... they had you do your pre-Q PFT fairly soon after taking the poly- did they think your BI was going super fast? Are you going to have to do the PFT again since your last one won't be within 60 days of Quantico?

I too have my PFT before Phase II. I have my Meet and Greet next Wednesday and my AC said I would need to schedule my PFT within 30 days.

It was going fast, I was originally called for the may class, but PFTs are good for 120 days now so it will carry me to July if my BI clears in time, if not I will need another for the September class but I'm not sure i'll be hanging around if I don't make July.

The good news: I'm ranked competitive and am going on to Phase 2. The bad news, it took almost 45 days to get ranked, I think they were waiting for me to self report a passing PFT score. So I don't think there is any way I'll make the September class, when is the next class after that?

And my advice is to not underestimate how influential the AC is to the process.

My BI officially started 4/7/19, and an agent reached out to me on Thursday to give me a heads up about talking to my current employer and neighbors, which he did the following day. He also told my supervisor that he was wrapping up the last part of my BI and that I was basically "hired". Pretty quick turnaround, hope this gives others hope who have been dealing with the solitude and quietness of the BI!!

I was told the next academy class dates are July 7, 2019 and September 15, 2019 for this fiscal year.

There will be a January 2020 academy class but no official date.
