    • Thought someone else might come across this so I'll let you all in on it... I was temporarily medically denied for the program because I noted on my form that when I was in middle school I went to a psych for ADD. I was only medicated for a month as a trial, which didn't work and have never had any issues through the rest of my schooling or employment history. Received something in the mail telling me that I had to have a psych evaluation at my expense and a lot of paperwork that the psych had to fill out. I'm sure that it will all come out ok in the wash but another example of getting booted, and hopefully in the end getting back in.

        It's crazy how childhood things are disqualifiers. People with childhood asthma have to see a Pulmonologist. I stated that I visit a chiropractor. I had to go see an orthopedic surgeon. He basically laughed when I told him why I was there. Easiest $400 bucks he ever made. Thankfully it only cost me my $15 copay.

          • Checked my score from the BPA exam last week. Scored an 88. So the waiting game begins for that process now. Hopefully there will be hiring in September for Buffalo, but we shall see. What is your TSU date?

                You can google USA Application Manager. Once you log in, you will be able to view the status of any federal job you have applied for through usajobs.gov. It's different than CASS, as this is only available once you receive a T.O.

                    6/29 it'll be my 60 day anniversary this saturday. It looks like your a month ahead of me though so im guessing i wont be hearing anything anytime soon. Are you taking the UB police test? You can start signing up for it on their website aug 30th.

I'm not really expecting a response anytime soon, just waiting and not worrying about it. BTW, she called me in april and said to call her in a month, she said they are working on it. I'm thinking that if they were going to dq me they would have done it already. I guess this is how the government works, oh well.
                      Yeah its easier said than done, but you gotta try and be positive. I think the same way you do. You think that it COULD take 8 months to clear someone off a NOPA, but SHOULDNT take 8 months for a dq. Just keep on checking CASS. Ive talked to a few dudes who got NOPA's and never heard from anyone and just cleared in CASS one day.

                          My GEO is at Laredo but hoping for Puerto Rico with God;s help. Wish you the best.

                          • Anyone with a GEO in Laredo, Texas? or maybe Puerto Rico?

                              It seems everything is on some sort of shut-down for the time being. TSU gets more crowded every month. Just keep the faith and keep keepin' on. If you pay too much attention to any sort of timeline, you'll do yourself a serious disservice. A little game that I play to help pass the time and anxiety, is that every time I think about how long it has been, I owe myself 10 push-ups. You'd think that overtime, I'd learn my lesson. As it turns out, I still think about it just as often, but now I can do 5,000 push-ups at time.
