    nycfed4life,
    Where your PFT2 will be taking place? I will recommend that you save your energy for tomorrow. Bring your MP3 the worst they can say is NO. Good Luck & keep us posted

          she can look on the cbp website and check her score by adding up all the points.. for example 19 pushups=21 points. tell her to add them all up see what she comes up with.. and she might need to wait a year to reapply.

            I was gonna send u a pm except ur inbox is disabled. Take it easy and save your energy. Take your time with the 220 yard dash. Some people I was with went all out and when it came time for the sit ups, they gave up. You will be fine, they probably wont let you use your mp3 but you can give it a shot. Trust me with your adrenaline, you will have no problem doing it.

            You said aug 16th, do you EOD then? When is your academy date. Good luck.

              • Question. Has anyone ever contacted their Background Investigator to check on the status of things?
                Is there a number for Internal Affairs to check on the status too?
                MHC does not have anything to do with the BI, so they cannot tell us CBPO's in the waiting nothing.

                    • I got a letter for my VBT today. It says that the date of my VBT is in October. WTF? I'm reading people took their VBT a week after their medical and mines two months later? It's strange that my background was rushed through yet this is way down the line.

                        New Fiscal Year starts in October which could be why...

                          Is that a good thing? Such a bummer. I was hoping to actually be hired by October.

                              • VBT In AZ anyone???

                                All my hubby and I are missing is our VBT. Is there anyone out there that has their's in AZ scheduled scheduled here pretty soon? I had it scheduled in TX but I had it changed and now I haven't heard anything. I'm begining to wonder if I should have just flown and taken it over there
