Does everyone who wears glasses have to get this? My corrected vision is 20/20 and my medical exam showed that. I also have only worn contacts for my wedding and don’t plan on continuing to wear them. Just a little annoyed that I have to go back to the eye doctor (and pay for it), when I just went for my annual exam last month.


It's standard. If you test >20/100 uncorrected at your medical, you will have to get the form signed by a doc. It basically tells the FBI that you are using glasses/contacts to correct to 20/20 and that you have no issues doing so.


What Annino said. Plus, your eye doc can go just use the information from your most recent visit. Medical accepted the same info from my eye appointment 6 months prior.


Gotcha. Thanks, hopefully my doc doesn’t have an issue doing that.

Coordinate with your processing office. Let them know about 45 days in advance and also you will be required to have a briefing when you return. This is from one of the 3 week emails.

I wish I did lol


I don't think there's any real info available on how grading is done beyond that it's a combination of your Written and Interview. All my AC was able to tell me is that it's a combined 'score'; even if you receive an email stating you 'Fail Phase 2' they won't specify which part brought you down: Written, Interview (or both). Seems like it's a bit of a black box. Hopefully you'll hear back soon and hopefully it's a positive email! As soon as you know you 'Pass Phase 2' the grading becomes less important. Best of luck!

You don’t always hear when you pass unless you ask directly. Otherwise you know when you get scheduled for medical.

If you are fully vaccinated you can leave up to 50 miles, that’s after you get a negative COVID test on the Wednesday of the first week.

Hi everybody!

For those of you who received a final offer:

My background started in March, completed my medical to include that supplemental form they request if you wear contacts. It has been a while since I have heard back. Those of you who received your final offer, did you receive a call first? Or did you see your FBI Jobs portal update first before you received a call notifying your background was complete?

I keep checking my portal, impatiently waiting on a check mark next to "COMPLETE BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION" lol.

I’m in the same exact situation as you and am also very interested in this. I check this forum and that portal far too often haha. Really hoping I make it into the upcoming September class.

Dangit! I'm about 100 miles away. Hopefully management re-evaluates at some point and lifts the restrictions more.

Approaching 3 months of waiting for my poly to be scheduled. So if you ever wonder can the process be slow, why yes it very much can be.

I'm in a very similar situation. My BI was conducted in April/May and cleared by medical the very first part of May. 6 weeks later I get an email from PSP asking for paperwork... If you've ever had counseling, you can expect this to come down the line at some point. I've heard many get it a couple weeks after clearing medical, but mine took longer. Had a date change on my application page on 5/21, but the portal remained "complete background investigation". Then I get the paperwork from PSP on 6/21. So PSP might be a little backed up? Anyway that shot down my hopes for August class, but I think Sept is definitely possible. I sent in my documentation to the black hole that is PSP last week, got a receipt notice but nothing else.
