    Hi Esme! I received a phone call they first tried my home # and then my cell. You should inquire with MHC and see what's going on. Good luck with all!!

        Sounds great! I hope the same for me!

            • so i failed the pft1, i know, FAIL, lol
              but i got the fail letter and it was dated july 19, and they said i can reapply for any future openings.
              so i jumped online and reapplyd right then and there(their taking apps on usajobs.gov btw)
              so i applyd and it said that my wriiten test score was still valid(1 yr) and that i didnt hav to take the test agian and
              that i would get a notice of results in 2ish weeks.
              my question is : will the steps that i have completed so far(paperwork,BI,VBT) transfer over to the new TO i will eventually recieve or will i have to start from scratch agian?

              • Hi no connection to above post but since I am 36 years and got my passing NOR on 1/25/11 I've been wondering about the age limit which the CBP site says "must be referred for selection by the age of 37 years old." My eligibility expires 1/3/12. Does passing the written mean selection??

                I assume not, so since SFO is my GEO and not hiring for years it seems, should I change my GEO to San Bernadino, Ca so I can get the process going since I'm running against time and age(37 next may)?? Oh yeah, I"m not ex military so no waiver for me. Any advice would be great.

                  However, I did also apply to the Southeast annoucement so if by some miracle I get a TO for that my Laredo destination will change although I'm not holding my breath on that one!
                  Hey Guile. I am in the process for Laredo too. You are not alone. I tested in Dec/10. Moreover, I also recently applied for the Southeast because I am afraid that the new geo change may affect us. I have no problem going to Laredo but I would never go to Roma i.e.

                    No one will care if you applied for multiple positions, if that is what you are referring to.

                      Yeah I know it's a little weird but you should be fine. I do known person who failed the VBT, he was dropped from the whole process.

                        Changing your geo to San bernadino will not help you. All of the newer testers have there geos changed to general sectors like North west, south west..., if I were you I would immediately change my GEO to the SWB and pray your background clears quickly and you get an EOD prior to your next birthday. Or look into some other cover positions that hire quicker like BOP, if you meet the qualifications.

                            It's going very good, I recommend applying to the BOP for all those who are waiting. I know every institution can be different but I am having a good experience here.
