If any, what VA disabilities can disqualify you? Is there a list of that


The disability is on a case by case basis, but the more issues you have, the more doctor clearances you're going to have to get. The rating amount is not the issue, but you're gonna need to demonstrate/prove that you are still able to complete the tasks necessary for the job. I escaped the service with only 10% rating for my hearing, but I'm having a difficult time getting cleared for it right now.

Yes this will definitely make a difference. Make sure to include the 10 pt preference in your resume and application. It could give you a leg up.
As far as disability disqualifies, im not sure what the guidelines are for that. But I've seen people on here with 90+ get through just fine. I've also seen people say they were asked to reduce their rating. So I dont know.



This may seem like a silly question- I'm curious what points you're referring to... I never received a ranking after phase 1. I was just notified that I passed. Are you referring to ranking after Phase 1?

It's a VA rating.

Interesting. Just to clarify, your AC said both December and January are for sure? I think it’s fairly rare to have two classes back to back like that. Last I was told was December was all but confirmed and likely a February after that.

My AC also said HQ was planning for December, January, and possibly March.

You have to remember we’re past the 20 year anniversary of 9/11. That single event is what inspired a lot of the current agents to become an agent which means most are close to if not already retiring. The agency is also growing. I’d expect there to be classes more frequently going forward

Fingers crossed for March! With the BI only starting a couple weeks ago, it's probably a best case scenario for me.

Long-time lurker here with a question! I am a graduate student looking to apply to the special agent job posting in the future once I have more work experience. I have worn glasses for the majority of my life and with my glasses my vision is a perfect 20/20. I have seen that as long as your vision is corrected 20/20, then you will pass the vision requirement, but they only mention contact lenses for this requirement. So does anyone know if glasses are allowed at Quantico and in the job after?

Nope. You have to have worn soft contact lenses for at least 1 year without issue and provide proof for the medical exam.

Nope. You have to have worn soft contact lenses for at least 1 year without issue and provide proof for the medical exam.


According to the FBI’s application guide, it depends on your vision.

“Applicants’ distant visual acuity, corrected or uncorrected, must meet FBI standards, which are 20/20 in one eye and no worse than 20/40 in the other eye.
» Applicants with distant visual acuity greater than or equal to 20/100 require medical documentation of successful soft contact lens use for at least one year without significant problems or adverse effects.”

So if your uncorrected vision is better than 20/100, you’re good with glasses. That’s how I am.

For those who are have been slotted for the December class, can you confirm if they are still requiring the 2 week quarantine before arriving at Quantico?

Question on the special agent applicant portal. It was updated for me maybe 3-4 weeks ago from the background phase to pending final offer, and it says we will email you with details once ready... Does anyone know how long that takes? Or do they start trying to assemble classes only a certain time period (ie 4 weeks) before they start?

My timeline
App 4/20
P1 4/20 pass
M/G 5/20
P2W 5/20
P2I 8/20
PFT1 /BI 10/20
Med 1/21
PFT2 4/21 pass
PFT3 7/21 pass
