About This Quiz

The FBI is not your local sheriff's office. Until the 1980s, if you wanted to be an FBI agent, you had to be a lawyer. Not only does the FBI have high standards, once you meet those standards you have to make it through training at Quantico. The FBI is for the super smart and crazy brave. Would you make the cut?
