Hmmm maybe what they really mean is it is more of a pain in the ass to get then the FBI, not that it is harder to pass? But I've also heard that it is harder to pass....haven't gone through either myself yet. FL is a PIA overall.
OT but for our local FBI internship they said you must have LE or prior military experience. That was annoying, I would have loved to apply but I've only got a degree in Crim...no experience.
