The only thing I've been trying (and failing) to go off of has been "targeted" emails. I was targeted by HQ for SEP which obviously didn't happen, and now I'm targeted for DEC. Maybe it depends on the FO you're processing out of and how much insight they provide. NOV 19th is a lot closer to the 2 week side of things than I'd prefer, haha. Here's to hoping for more like Nov 10th!

When you say targeted emails, what do they look like?

They come from my FO. They start with

"Dear Special Agent Applicant,


HQs has 'targeted' you for BFTC 22-01 beginning 05 December 2021. Please advise as to your availability to attend this class..."

and there's some other info and now there's stuff about the vaccine and so on.

Thank You! I haven't spoken to my AC as yet so no target date. I happened to sign onto the portal today and saw that I had an update yesterday and a green check mark next to background.

Not entirely sure. I don't know whether or not I've been favorably adjudicated, at least not with verbal or written from my FO. I've had a green check in background since mid-September.

Was offered a spot in the Dec class but am hoping to be shifted to the Feb class so I can help hire and train my replacement at work.


Question for you my friend. When you say you were offered a spot, did you actually receive a final offer, or did your AC tell you tentatively that you were on the roster? Just trying to gauge my chances at getting in for December.

To chime in, I was adjudicated at the end of April, passed the pre-Q PFT in July and again in October, so I’ve just been waiting, getting real stir crazy haha. Good luck to everyone trying to get in, it’s a long process but it’ll be worth the wait I’m sure!

I’ve heard they tier applicants for classes based on experience. Could be they are looking to see what classes you’ve taken. Purely a guess

Also, they may just be finalizing your employment file and need your transcripts if you didn’t provide before!

My AC told me that it's normal for them to ask for your transcripts again and to expect an email that requests that you upload them again. She doesn't know why they ask for them again, but it is apparently standard.

Hey everyone. Does anyone know if you have the option to delay taking the Pre-Q PFT, or are you required to take it at a certain date? Right now I have the option to schedule it in the portal, but don't plan on scheduling it until earliest when my background is complete but hopefully even later.

As some background, I developed shin splints (potentially a stress fracture) and have been recovering as a result for the last month and a half. I know I could run through the pain and pass the PFT bc I passed the practice PFT with the FO when I had the pain in August with 15 points. However, I am not in a rush to get to Q and feel it would be better if I could take 2 months or so off to fully recover and then have adequate time to train at a better pace and get beyond 15 points, and just be better prepared for the academy. If it were up to me I would start Q next fall at the very earliest. My background investigation is still underway so I probably have a couple of months (possibly more) until adjudication. I also know the official policy is you must pass the PFT within 1 year of completion of the background investigation and you get unlimited attempts, but I don't know if the FO reaches out and pressures you to take the PFT or if you can simply decline and take it whenever suits you. I would not want to take the PFT and pass (which I think getting 5 points is relatively easy, even with pain) only to begin Quantico at a disadvantage and fighting through pain for 20 weeks. I also don't want to take the PFT and intentionally fail it, bc I think it would just be embarrassing and a waste of time.

I really would appreciate everyone's thoughts. Feel free to PM me as well.


The only deadline is a year after completing background, but my AC starting encouraging applicants to take the PFT around the time of adjudication in order to be considered for the upcoming Q classes. But even then, you can wait as long as you want (up to a year post-background), you just won’t be considered for Q until you get that baseline PFT score. I think since you’ve already gone through a practice PFT and know what to expect, it might be best to just wait until you’re at your best and have completed background. But whatever you decide, I’ve found it helpful to keep an open dialogue with my AC/ FO so they’re not left wondering when I plan to take the PFT.

Well I just got the e-mail from psych. I've heard this can be a black hole where you are stuck with no word for months if you don't constantly reach out to them and remind them to process you. Anyone have any experience with this?

Don't sweat it too much. You should expect to wait anywhere from 2-4 months from this point forward. I know it's easy to get discouraged, but this is not an uncommon part of applicant processing and is typically the final step before adjudication. For me, I received the Psych email in August and was adjudicated a couple of weeks ago.

Make sure you provide them with detailed information - enough where it erases any doubt that they have what they need. You may also receive a follow up request to have an eval performed. But again, it's normal. Just have to respond to their questions. Good luck and feel free to PM with any add'l Qs.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not too worried about the process, just people here had said they get stuck in psych for a year or more. And a lot were saying if you don't call them all the time they'll just forget about you.
