    I was there for 8 hrs and went home happy... means we were given results and T.O. on the SPOT... Hence, knowing how many of the testers passed that day... Like I said almost 500 took the test, and less than 100 passed that day.


    As to the dude with the credit issue, if your credit score isn't bad and that is the "only" issue you have, I'd say press on... If you have the proof that you took care of the debt, then you should be in the clear, unless you have other credit problems then you should withdraw and wait a bit.

    Congrats... I'm still waiting....lol

      Thanks for your thoughts. I see you are in Los Angeles. Are you also applying to LA/LongBeach?

      Yes, the charge-off is the only negative on my credit. I had near perfect credit before that. It was at a time I was unemployed and struggling to pay off school loans.....they got me clean. I have since paid it off and should clear up soon on reports. I also have letters to prove it. It was just discouraging to get a call from Internal Affairs now knowing it will be a potential problem. I told them screw it and submit to MHC.

      Will MHC allow you to dispute/resolve it if they find it an issue. Also, if you are found unsuitable, can you re-apply??

      THANK ALL !!!

        Whenever you get to meet with the Investigator you will have a chance to provide evidence of payments (and anything else he might want). If you already got a Tentative Offer, and have cleared everything else (Medical, Fitness, VBT, Drug) and all you have left is BI, then your case has already been at MHC for a while...

        I applied for LA, Long Beach in August 07', tested and got my TO late that month. I have passed everything, and I'm still waiting for them to clear my BI, which is getting close to 7 months now since I met with the Investigator...

        Good Luck

              Tested in November 2007 so it has been nine months.

              Just wanted to share. Good luck to everyone else still in the process.

                  • I changed my preference from New Jersey to Vermont on June 30 in hopes of expediting the process but have yet to hear anything. I heard Bush signed something a law streamlining security clearances and background checks to make them interchangable among agencies does anyone have more info on this?

                      Damn, when I tested there were around 500 people at the Long Beach Convention Center, close to 100 passed if that... we got the results and TO the same day! But we were there for about 8 hrs though... It was a very long day for me since I had to drive a bit over 300 miles there to take the test, then the trip back home.... at least I was happy on the way back
                      But hey, here I am still waiting on them to clear my BI
                      Wow... I have to drive 6 hrs R/T to take a 15-20 min. VBT?... oh well.

                      What is the dress code for the VBT? Would there be any officers doing a one-on-one interview as well? I am kind of confussed..

                        How far are you from Philly? Philly has become a critical need area.

                        • I live near Long Beach Island its about an hour and change to PHL I dont know about the seaports probably about the same time. Philly was my original preference how do change it back? I dont want to move out of state unless I have to. I tested in Feb 07 with Philly as a preference then recertified in July 07 with Jersey as preferred then received an email June 08 and chose Vermont.

                            What was your score?

                            My advice would be to wait it out, the fact that you were bouncing around frequently probably prevented you from receiving a TO so far. That last round of TO's for NJ went all the way down to 80. I am not sure what the cutoff is for PA. Considering they are now a critical need they did not receive enough applicants.

                            • Does anyone who is currently a CBP officer or know someone who is, know if CBP Officers are required to or recommended to have Nextel phones? If they are is it at our expense or does DHS pay for them? I know that allot of Law Enforcement agencies in my area require their officers to have them.

                                Have you heard anything about the need for officers at CBP ports in PA other than Philadelphia (Harrisburg, Erie, Pittsburgh)?
