I applied to 2 bids last year and a direct hire package. So 3 total. I can't remember which one I was on when the MMPI bullshit happened. And not in a position to check right now. I was notified of tier 2 by the old man in June or July..again can't remember. I have not been contacted by hope. And every email I send keeps getting the response "be patient". Hope that helps.Applying to any bid once you're in tier 2 does nothing. You have to go through the process, they won't issue another TOL.
Rightfully so.... imagine getting another TOL and not flagging for anything in the personality inventories.
(There is no pass/fail on MMPI)
The psychiatrist doesn't make any determinations. They simply fill out the paperwork and send to the the FAA where a flight surgeon will look it over and determine whether or not you pass.Sorry I’m late to the party. Anyone still here from the 18 bids? I’m July 18 bid. I finally got notified that I failed my mmpi on 10/9/19. Took my tier 2 on 11/12/19. I’m assuming I passed because the psychiatrist didn’t do anything extra nor schedule more appointments. Just one 2hr appointment.
I’m still waiting to hear from the faa on whether I passed though. Just wanted to share this info.
Also, who is HQ?!?! I keep getting told by people I email that they’re “Waiting on HQ”.... who exactly is HQ??

They look at everything that could be a factor. Some of the requests are excessive, but the MMPI is a personality inventory. They look at factors that cause you to flag in those areas of the MMPI.This may be a dumb question but why do they need medical records in their request for more information when you are notified of tier 2?
For me I was asked to write a personal statement to "clarify" an event. Though if they looked at the records the answer was already in a report. Seems excessive to double tap something that is 10+ years old and irrelevant to current life. (I say irrelevant because it was genuinely a case of wrong place wrong time).Do you have any examples of excessive requests?
