FBI Credentials

Postby salad.law » Mon Jul 18, 2016 1:27 am


I was wondering what one needs to be a FBI special agent. I cannot seem to find much out there. I know about the basics (physical requirements, vision requirements, 3 years work experience, and no marijuana in the last 3 years).

I go to a top 20 law school. My dream goal was to be an AUSA or an ADA. In other words, a criminal prosecutor. I have done three trials in law school, argued motions, wrote motions, and did a few hearings. I plan to work as an ADA after graduation and for a couple of years. I barely speak another language, but I can converse. I do not mind being an ADA for the rest of my life.

However, recently I have been maybe wanting to be a FBI special agent. My basic question is, will I have the credentials to be competitive to be an FBI special agent? For those that enter the FBI through law, what kind of credentials do they usually have (Harvard Law, clerkship or more JAG, military)?
