    Well I can tell you that he lost the ability to get pm's because I tried to send him a message and it said that he can't receive them. He was discussing my "issue" with me giving me some advice...

      • I'm taking the Border Patrol exam next Tuesday for the Northern Border (Buffalo, NY). I am currently in TSU for CBPO as well.. Does any of the process carry over if I were to receive a TO from BP?

          • My TSU date for Buffalo is April 28th... So 107 days and counting... My current job is much less than ideal, and I am getting very anxious to get started with CBP.

                The BI, physical and drug test are interchangeable between the two positions. They'll carry over in either direction. The exam, interview, and fitness test are different...they won't carry over.

                That's one of the questions answered repeatedly on this thread.

                *all applicants*
                Just a suggestion, learn to use the search function and find your own answers here and elsewhere.
                One of the main skills needed for CBPO success is the ability to search. Work on it now and you'll be that much futher ahead when it comes to the time you'll be heading out the door on day #1 as a happy, new CBPO.

                  For the people waiting on SF/OAK hope is alive!.

                  Sorry guys for the delay, life is just moving at the speed of light. I called TSU, this morning and talked to them, and I told them that I would take the job. They informed me that my EOD is 08/31/09. I'll spend two weeks down in S.F. till 9/15/09. I fly out to Glynco on 9/16/09 and start the academy on the 09/17/09. I have a graduation date of 01/05-01/06/2010.I supposed to get an over night packet in the mail tomorrow. TSU advised me that I was very lucky to get the call for this local, since hiring has slowed down some much. Don’t worry guys, I bet the calls will pick up very soon. Just keep your fingers crossed.

                    • Anybody in TSU waiting for Washington Northern border? Thanks.

                      Comment


                      • So I got a call today from an adjudicator in DC about my BI. She said that I should withdraw my application before she wrote up a NOPA and had it sent to me. She said that if they find myself unsuitable for the position, that it will hurt my chances of getting any federal job in the future. My question is do they always tell you to withdraw your app before they send you a NOPA, or does this mean I have no chance? Any help would be appreciated. I have to call her back on Monday with my decision.

                          I don't understand how the staff of the MHC works it's like they try to delay the process.
                          Not to cast disparaging comments, but they are government employees. Just kidding, sort of. Actually they have many, many applicants to process. Often it is the same stuff different day. They have to take extra care to make sure each step is completed. I don't know how they divide the work up there, but if one person is doing qualifications another is scheduling medicals, another is doing something else it is very easy to think a step was completed for a person but it was really done for someone else. I started to have that problem when I was a BI, because believe it or not many investigations were very similar. The way I solved the issue is I would go through the processes twice, unless I had cases that were almost exactly the same, then it was three or four times.
                          But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                          For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                            Ouch, did she say what she was going to give you a NOPA on? I would imagine they wouldn't ask you to w/d your app unless it could be something serious (and actually affect your future applications as well)... But then again, if there is nothing harmful in your background why not fight it? They could have spoke to your mortal arch-enemy and you could lose the job over a misunderstanding...

                            I don't know if you can find out why she is going to issue you a NOPA before you give her an answer but it's worth a shot.

                            Good luck.

Just a thought... But then again if you fight it and don't get in and then you get it expunged down the road, I don't know how they could hold it against you if you reapply because technically it doesn't exist.
                                Whoa there cowboy, lets not start giving hypothetical advice here.

                                First, expunged means nothing. If a LEO or LEO agency wants to find something that has been "expunged", it would take them .4 seconds to do so. Next, the phone call he received is the same phone call that hundreds if not thousands of people whom had something, anything pop up on their BI that the adjudicator wants answers too.

                                If you have a record that was expunged, you still did it.
