    GOOD LUCK LEXIS!!!!
    Thank You so much for the encouraging words. That step test was by far no joke. Unfortunately I was unable to finish my time was 3min 45sec my right leg caught a muscle spasm in the worst way. Dr's had to be called in; I was dizzy & in serious pain after the test they made me go to a room and elevate my legs for 1hr. I'm sad cause if you don't pass that part then you're no longer considered for the position

    • I'm sorry to hear that. Glad you're okay. You can always apply with the next announcement. Your test should be good for a year. Just practice on those steps in the mean time.

          Should've just guessed if you were running out of time. Blank bubbles are bad, at least you had a 1 in 4 or 1 in 5 chance of getting it right if you guessed.

Did any one else here receive such call recently with such area code? They did not specify that they were with CBP, just that it was for me in reference for a security background investigation. I tried calling the man back several times, only to reach his voicemail and now the standard "the person you are trying to reach is unavailable at this time" message. Thanks.
            My background investigator called from the same area code as I was. My understanding was that the security office sends the file to a investigator that lives in the same area.

              I agree.... I did not run out of time on anything but I def. felt overwhelmed. The math part did not seem overly difficult but the reasoning was quite a bit harder then the practice test. I did throw in a few guesses lol

                  • Hello all! I was supposed to have medical and fitness test today.. Just completed the medical portion (it went smoothly) but the fitness test was re-scheduled for later this week, for some reason the fit test administrator was not available today! So in the meantime will practice a bit more... Take care everyone!

                    • My leg is killing me but as soon as I get the failed letter I will reapply. The DR did say he would let them know what happen & maybe they will have me repeat the step test. (Crossing fingers).

                      How did you do?

                      • About how long into the investigation process will one know if they will have to do a Poly? Investigator met all of my contacts last week, just curious if I will have one or not...

                          • Just took the CBPO written test this morning. Are the behavioral questions part of the total written score? I was surprised that they added that onto the test when they could of easily just made that part of the test online. Would of saved us 2 hours and tax payers money... But oh well.

                            Hopefully they get the ball rolling quicker, but I doubt it as from reading this thread, most people are in this process for 2 years+. Guess I'm better off just forgetting I applied.

                            • What do you mean your class wasn't big enough? When was it suppose to originally start? What GEO do you choose? I have my polygraph on 8/3.

                                The worst part is when you narrow it down to 2 choices...then you think about it some more and then 3 start to look good... on reasoning.
