        Future CBP FEMALE here too ....waiting on SWB since 08
        What's the hold up? Have you completed everything and are now just waiting more? I applied 11-10 and didn't hear anything until they sent out the offer to change location. Once I did that everything has moved super fast. Just curious about wait times and what to expect.

As disappointing and frustrating as this process is it isn't a health issue, the death of a loved one; it is a personal/professional failure by chance, which isn't that bad.

          We are still in the process which has to be a good thing, right? They could have dropped us all a long time ago like the other agencies did with their applicants.
          Well, yes in perspective its overall a good thing. I have a job, ill get to the one I want eventually, its not life or death. And the ones that have been around here for a while don't have to deal with that regional placement BS

            You will run on a track along with whoever was called to EOD around your same time. They should give you about 5 minutes between each exercise.

              • Well I got up this morning and can't log into CASS. I'm quite sure that it's due to me not passing the pt. I passed everything except the `situps becuase of the stomach cramps we woman have once a month. Is there anyway to appeal it?

                      Shortybop,
                      You've passed the PT. They allow you to only fail one part. But you must pass that dam STEP TEST no matter what! When did you do your PT I haven't received my results yet either?

                        I haven't seen any numbers on the new classes. That's not all that surprising since the first class only graduated in June.

                        For FY10, the number was roughly 18% academy attrition.

                        • On the CASS website it says that my structured interview has been scheduled but I haven't received any notification of when and where. Should I just wait for them to call or should I call/email them?

                            I would email them to get a definitive answer.
