  • Anyone have their VBT graded/scored in Chicago? I took my VBT in Minneapolis and was told that it would be sent to Chicago. Strangely enough, I was also told it would be about two weeks before I got my results, however MHC has informed me that it will be about six weeks.

    I'm getting down to the wire -- my BI is good until sometime in the end of July/beginning of August from when I was with the Border Patrol.

    VBT results, and getting medically cleared are my only two hurdles and I'm going nuts.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for Montana.

        well you wont attend training on any federal holidays. but if by chance, you have to train on the afternoon shift, you will get differential pay. This happened when i was down there. President Bush came down for a press conference on border security in the morning and we had class on the afternoon shift.

            well you can have a "completed" bi in CASS, before it even starts. I had a girl in my FLETC class who never even started her BI yet. The investigator actually called her to set up the initial interview while we were in class. It'll be done completely but not necessarily before you get hired. pretty stupid, huh?

                75% of my class, me included had no college. just make sure you word your qualification reasoning very clearly and intelligently

                    if ya got nothing to hide, dont sweat it and just roll with whatever they have you do. even if something comes up (M.I.P., marijuana, credit problems, etc.) you should get a chance to respond to it.

                      again thanks for the quick answer, are you at FLETC? or are you official already? how long did your process take from the time you applied?

                        Was down there in May of 07 till August 07. Had to reason for personal reasons that arose back home. But i just recently re-applied, waiting to hear something. If you got any questions just ask. I got my t.o. in December 06 and was hired by April 07.

                          Well, it's obvious YOU do not have a degree because your writing skills have a lot to be desired! Do you even have a high school diploma?

                                Sorry if I offended! It's just hard to see the agency scraping the bottom of the barrel!! It didn't used to be that way!
