      Even though mine was quick, once I finished everything, I just put it out of my mind and went on with life. I had a good job and was pretty comfortable with life. The system is so unpredictable it's just not worth getting to wrapped up about. With that said though, if you know your background is good, then start planning the basics, like looking for a place to live if your moving, stuff like that.

            The quick answer is no. The government doesn't care if you live 5 or 1500 miles from your POE.

            I'm moving for my EOD, but not as far as you, but here's what I'm doing, I'm taking all my crap, putting into storage, then either staying in a long stay hotel or mooching off friends for the 2 weeks at my port before FLETC. Then at FLETC you'll earn a couple of days of leave and your port should give you the days to get your crap straight before coming back.

            I loved the military because you got 10 days of free leave to settle into your new base. No such love for the GS's though.

              You can make arrangements with your port to get your moving done after the academy, or you can try to do it during one of your weekends during pre academy.

                What is the pre academy schedule like? I'm assuming it's an 8 hour shift every day, with weekends off. Am I correct?

                  • Seems like it's the same all over. 8 hrs of watching and learning some basic aspects of the job. Now and then some shooting and self defense just to get a taste of what your next 20 years will be like. Also it gives people a chance to change careers... there are people who will not like the stamping booths.

                      Much of the information presented in the pre academy is a preview of the actual academy. If you take the time and become very famillier with the information presented in the computer learning it will make your time at the academy that much easier.

                      Oh yeah and it's Monday through Friday, though I assume it could change by port.
                      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.

                        • Guys,

                          Do you have the States/Cities where CBPO are urgently needed?... I chose one in So Cal (was not in the urgent list) but I don't think I can wait for too long - the sooner I leave this place, the better. I think I will have to change locations. Thanks

                            Dont worry about your BI, will0861.

                            I applied on January 2007, took the test 5 months after that. I just got the call 3 days ago. That is almost 1 year and a half of waiting. Just patience. It will pay off.

                              Exactly. There are hundreds of variables that effect the pace of the BI. Plus the wheels of the federal government move at the speed of cold molasses.
