      • "Your medical has been sent to our Medical Review Office for a determination. We normally receive a determination approximately four weeks after your exam date."

        They said I had slight hearing loss in my left ear at my medical exam. Does this mean that I might not pass my medical or will I have a chance to go to a specialist and get it cleared up?

          You would just have to go to a specialist to clear it up.. you might even be able to use your own physician. Call and ask them after they send you the forms in the mail regarding that issue.

          I failed a few things, I had to redue them.. no biggy. Just keep an eye on your mail cause its suppose to be cleared within a month after they mail it!

          • Today i emailed TSU to see whats going on or were i am on the list because i know they were hiring for SWB. I took my test February 2007 and been waiting im also a vet, 10 point preference and this is what they said.

            Good morning,



            At this time we still do not have any vacancies in the state of California . Our office will contact you once we receive funded vacancies and reach your name. Due to the current economic climate, hiring has slowed considerably and we are unable to predict when vacancies will occur.



            Thank you for your patience.

              Yes, they take your pulse and BP. Pulse needs to be below 100 and your bp needs to be under 140/90. If it's not they won't let you test that day. Then you go to a doctor and get 3 good readings and you will be able to test again. So I hear anyway.

                    yes but what i always wanted to do is CBP and i want to go to San Diego and nowhere else. San Ysidro, Otay or Tecate. I graduate may 18. I got stationed In Casa Grande,AZ. I have a wife and kids and a house I own.by the way a transfer is out of the question i asked numeres agents here in the BP Academy minimum of 4 to 6 years thats way to much for me so im hoping for a miracle and CBP comes through some time this year or early next. with the expension at otay pedestrian border they might hire for 2012. My roommate also took the test in DEC 2010 and passed with 87 GEO PREF Calexico and he has not even received a TO yet i told him wait about 4 years lol.

                        • For the people who have had to re do a step recently, have you been placed back into "TSU" after having all green check marks again?

                            • Help!!! My fitness test is Wednesday how many inches is the step test? And how do I prepare?

                              Comment


                              • 12 inches I believe.

                                If you are in decent shape you should be fine. Just pace yourself when you are doing it, it is just like marching.

                                If your legs are in shape you should be fine.
