Took it on a Tuesday and it was updated on the following Thursday. I think it all depends on when the admin gets around to entering the data.

FWIW I didn't get my questionnaire request from Psych until about 3 months after my medical exam.

Is it a false rumor that if you get a 21 or better on the pre-Quantico PFT that you don't have to retake it at Quantico? I have only read that a 21 or better just makes your score good for one year.

I don't know about at Quantico but I scored over 21 and afterwards I received an email stating I don't have to take another test as long as I go to the academy within the next year.

What does the psych questionnaire entail? I have not had any counseling or mental health symptoms either so I am curious, just got my medical appointment

Yeah that’s false. Everyone takes the PFT at Q three times. You just have to pass it once while you’re there. A 21 would be good for a year pre Q though. My AC confirmed this during a PFT.

It was questions regarding symptoms and counseling. I am not sold that everyone gets this as I have never heard that before. I will post an update to that if I hear anything else.


Weird, I would think you just answer "None" to every question then and that's that. I will let you know if something like that comes my way since I'll be at that stage in a month. Always hear about psych being a blackhole

Hey everybody!

Question: If you see a date change during your background (and have already been medically cleared and it’s been 8 months since I have been in background with no date changes), does that mean I’m probably in adjudication?

What do you all think?

Yep! SOunds like it. Unless you put down anything Psych related. In which case, you should expect a follow up request from Psych.

Couple questions and thanks in advance!

1. Virtual meet and greet - how long did yours go? Is it like a conversational way or they brief you for an hour then you get to ask?

2. Resume - It says put competencies within it.. did you put it after professional summary? Also, did you put each core? I can’t find the template for this one.

3. Meet and greet at actual building - is it only paperwork? Do I need negative covid test before coming in?

Really thankful for this forum and for everyone’s contribution!!

If any female is looking for a fantastic physical fitness training program, I suggest trying out Competitive Female Training, Tactical Female Training Program. It’s an online program and all you need is a gym. It’s some of the best programming specific to female weaknesses that I have done. Coming from a female who has successfully gotten through the military and Quantico, this is a great program with great coaches. Let the coach know what you’re training for (new SA pft) and your timeline. The coach has successfully passed this pft, as well as many others. I haven’t been on this forum since I got to Quantico and didn't plan on ever getting back on. But, this program is too great not to share.

1. My virtual meet and greet took about 1 hour, it was just a one on one with one of the agents that work there and I asked some questions about the process and what the job is like as well as placement since I wanted to be in a specific department.

2. Resume, I took the format it provided on the FBI site, I dont think it said anything about specific competencies but in the jobs I did I made sure to highlight that I apply each of the competencies at my jobs. The template is located either on your application portal or the PDF that describes how to apply.

3. I did not have a meet in greet in the building so I am not sure about this one but I assume it would be similar to the virtual I would bring in your FBI resume to that one though and when I went to my interview I brought my vaccination card but they never checked it.

Hope this helps :)

Has anyone else been requested to schedule a comprehensive psychological assessment? I received an email requesting additional records which was that they are requesting that I scheduled a comprehensive psychological assessment with a licensed clinical psychologist that has law enforcement pre-hiring assessment experience. They said I have to pay for it out of pocket and that I have to find my own licensed clinical psychologist. This has been quite a task to even find anyone qualified and when I do find someone they state that they only conduct these assessments if they have been directly hired by a specific agency.

I'm not even sure why I have to do this in the first place since I have never been diagnosed with any mental or psychological health conditions and have never taken any medications either. I went to relationship counseling because our family is a blended family and we wanted to improve our communication and also discuss how to raise our children since we came from different backgrounds and that's it. Our counselor filled out a form stating that there is no mental diagnosis and so on.

I don't understand how they just request that I find my own psychologist and they don't even provide a list or anything. They told me to search "police psychologist," which rendered nothing.

Has anyone else gone through this process? Any information, advise or even a list of psychologists would be really helpful.

Anybody know what the spouse interview consists of exactly? Is it similar to the interview of "people who know you well," or is it more informational?

I wasn’t there obviously, but my husband took notes and it seemed to be mostly informational and making sure your spouse is aware of things like the mobility agreement, that you’ll be carrying a firearm, etc.

Mine was done over the phone for my wife. But pretty much the same as @debellil said, mostly informational about pay, Quantico, etc. with a little bit of character type questions.
