It’s like 39 bucks I believe, and in my opinion worth it.


That’s very good to know. I’m the same way - I received a lot of helpful piecemeal advice for the individual events from agents and personal trainers, but sometimes it’s difficult putting them together to create a workout plan that makes the most effective use of my time and maximizes the results for the PFT specifically. Thank you!

I incorporated chest and triceps in my upper body days to up my push up score. I did a lot of sled pushes and banded work to help with my sprint speed (and prevent injury). After some strength days, I would do the 1.5 mi run to make sure I could complete it fatigued. For core, there's nothing like doing max reps for time (with a weight on your chest to add difficulty), but I also incorporated some weighted planks and hanging knees to elbows. In the two weeks leading up to my PFT I did the full PFT 2-3 times per week, and I made sure to do max push ups every day. I also highly recommend doing multiple sprint sets to make sure your cardio/recovery is in good shape.

Well today is November 5th, it's the 30 day mark for the December 5th academy class. Best of blessings for those anticipating a Final Offer within the next few days. Hopefully they don't make us wait too long.

I estimate FJOs will go out the week of 11/14. They usually come out the week before the Sunday marking two weeks until the class start date. So in this case, class start is Dec 5th, two weeks prior is 11/21. So the week before that.

Since there was a conversation about the PFT, I’d love any push-up tips!

On my two official PFTs I scored 17 and 19 respectively. However, I only scored 1 and 2 points on the push-ups.

I feel like I had an relatively easy grader (though I think I used pretty good form) and want to get that number up in preparation for quantico.

I have started using my momentum to go down, which has helped and am doing grease the groove presently.

Any other tips would be welcome! Would love to be able to knock out 40+, as the other 3 events are not an issue for me.

Ah yes, time to begin the agonizing few weeks prior to the next class of refreshing my email and logging on to the portal 96 times a day.

FWIW my AC said I'll know by the end of next week if I'll be making the December class.

Hey All!

I was curious, has anyone had to wait an exponentially long time to get a Phase II date?
I had my M&G in late June 2021. and the last update I received was that my application was with the suitability review board. I understand that no news is good news, but this seems like a long time comparatively speaking.
Is it uncouth to reach out to the AC about "timelines"?

After meet and greet you should have received an email probably within 2-4 weeks stating you were ranked not competitive or competitive (along with a phase II invitation if ranked competitive).

Might wanna reach out since if you haven't received such email, or a phase II invite.

Been on here and posted quite a bit in the past (first interaction, FBI SA 2019 thread), but dropped off from the forum for about 7 months now.

I first started the process back in 2019 out of CA and got up to P2 but deactivated my application right before going through with it.
I moved to FL shortly after and and reactivated my application in the beginning of 2021, passed the PFT when it used to be prior to P2, did my P2 in April of this year and failed it (had a family passing and affected my interview).

It has been 7 months now and I am hoping I pass the second time.

I have caught up on this thread since my last interaction in April and see many folks passed and went to Q (congrats to everyone who made it).

With that said,

I do have some questions for the ones who failed P2 and retested;

When the 1 year cooldown comes, do you have to reapply, do reach out to your AC, do you get an email notification, or are you able to reschedule it on the portal?

As of right now, my portal says, "You have been removed from consideration for the Special Agent position."


***************I wanted to also ask, do you redo both the writing and the interview? or is it one of the other? Lastly, was it the same material on the written as you took it the 1st time?

Hey all. I'm finally a week away from eligibility to reapply after failing my first attempt at Phase 1.

I was wondering if anyone knows if the FBI is still doing the extended scheduling period for Phase 1 due to COVID or if it is back to needing to schedule your Phase 1 Test within 2 weeks of the invitation?

Some inconvenient timing with some familial health issues as well as a busy work schedule that, if it's back to the two week scheduling, would mean I'll delay reapplying a couple weeks.

Also, any success stories of people who failed initially but passed on a second go?

Thanks!
