          • What’s typically the time period it takes for the medical to take place if I’ve completed my BI and submitted my CPAT? Thx

              Seems like usually within a month or two for people but "typical" doesn't really exist for the foreseeable future and it seems like talk of no classes until 2021 is growing (still just rumors, nothing confirmed yet). I'm in the same boat, finished BI and waiting for med.

                How long did it take to find out if you passed/failed Background? I was contacted July 3rd by my BI that he was starting my background. Do they call/email you if you pass/fail?

                    No they don’t let you know. If you get a medical invite in the future you passed.

                        He called me about a week after he started to let me know he was finished. I don't know how explicitly they will tell you if you "pass" but like other things in this process I'd think no news is good news.
