    Everyone that passes their interveiw with a 70 or above (please correct me if I am wrong, it could be 75-80) is on the hiring list, of course they will never go down that far on the list. You move on in the process if you recieve a 95 or better on your interview. Once you get to the Intial panel review they then choose the most desired canidates and move them on in the process and check out their background packets. One can here back within a matter of weeks others it can be up to 11 months. It just depends on what kind of qualifications that canidate has.

    Is the background investigator assigned to you the same person from the preliminary background interview?

    No, you will be assigned a different background investigator.

    The medical consists of blood work, urine sample, eye exam and also color blind exam, an ekg of a resting heartbeat, blood pressure, hearing exam. Then the doctor comes in a checks you out. Its a typical annual exam. You will also be taking your psy exams the same day you take have your medical.

    No unfortunately. My background investigator just turned in my paperwork for the final panel the other day. So I probably still have a month to hear from the final panel. So we'll see... like I said though.. I think I am on track for the April academy. Fingers crossed everything goes well.

    Hey BICA, that's great!

    I've still yet to hear from final panel review...background completed October 16th.

    Hopefully I'm in line for the April Tower as I would think the time is getting a little short for February.

    I know a few guy stated that they waited up to four months for panel review so I'm anxiously waiting to hear. No news is good news I guess?!?

    By the way, how was the psych? Any advice?

    Congratulations again.

    Thumbs up psych test

    psych test was just long. about 3.5 hours for me... nothing tricky on it at all. it is not designed to be tricky. just a little bit above 1000 true/false questions. here is a website that gives you the first 75 questions and gives you a good idea on the rest of the test.

    https://antipolygraph.org/cgi-bin/fo...=1109032158/34

    scroll a little bit down the page and you will see the questions.

    good luck. keep us informed.

    I want to give a heads up to the candidates in the Sep 18th group that were chosen to move on in their backgrounds and to receive investigators. Letters have been sent out to all my references, previous and present work & roommates, and family. This was all done before I was contacted by my investigator. I was contacted by him today. Good luck to all that are in the process.

    I got my call for the Feb 16th academy on the 31st of December. I was wondering what the average qualifications were for candidates who proceeded on with a background investigator?

    took my written test 12/13/08 and have not received a letter. i called in to the personel department and they stated i passed the written i also just took the cpat exam yesterday. i improved my time by over 1 min and 12 sec just by implementing a little bit of running and working out. i'm stoked. faxed my cpat info to the personel department today so now i'm just waiting for the oral interview date. 09 is going to be a great year.
