                  I finished the process in the very beginning of May and it was probably about 3 weeks before I got the letter

                        • For those of you who've passed the polygraph, did you receive official notification that you were successful? It's been the 4 weeks for me, so I'm hoping no news is good news by this point?

                            When I did my poly back in April, they told me up to 4 weeks for my results but I found out in about 2ish weeks that I would have to retake it via an email
