    Medical is basic.
    You don't really "do" anything. BP, Vision, Weight, Urine sample, blood sample, VO2 max test,hearing and they make you do a few other things to make sure you have full range of motion basically.
    The medical part is cake. The psych is what takes up most of the day.
    You'll be good.

    Thanks for the info! As far as I've heard, the psych is just the questionnaire and a quick 20 minute interview right? Is it the MMPI test or a different one?

    Has anyone who did there medical/psych not done a psych interview? Is it a requirement? Or can you pass without being interviewed? Thanks

    I received a letter in the mail, mid October, that I have made it into backgrounds but havent had a one on one investigator interview yet. Is anyone else on the same step? CONGRATULATIONS to those who have made it.

    I don't think anyone is getting a letter for medical. I think you only get one if it's bad. Nonetheless, congrats to you and to everyone else making it this far in the process.
