    Default question on references

    Hi. I just took the polygraph exam for Loudoun county 13days ago. The examiner said my drug use was inconclusive(although i told the entire truth. haven't touched an illegal substance in over 10yrs). Anyhow, none of my references have been called yet. Does anyone here know if that's a bad sign? I would appreciate any feedback!

    I'd say that that's a bad sign.

    My interview was no more than 10 minutes. I arrived before the guy ahead of me. Its a panel interview. They only ask 6 questions. Good luck. Afterward they should give you a date for the dotcor check up

    I made it through the panel interview, medical scheduled, I guess it's time to step up my PT to be prepared if I get offered a spot.

    Appreciate everyones feedback. to anybody whos been through the academy give me an idea of what PT is like in detail so i can have a better idea. I consider myself to be in great shape but I dont want any surprises. Also do you get tested on pull ups. Im pretty strong all around but have trouble with pull ups due to a past injury.

    It's in July so I think July 26th is the date (tentatively of course).

    PT is mostly cross fit/combat challenge type stuff but that could change at any time. The only time we really did pull ups was during "pt testing" which was every 2 weeks if I remember correctly and they gauge how you improve through RC based on that(along with push ups, sit ups, and 1.5 timed mile run)
