    I'm not sure how the budget works. They may have allocated funds to hire X number of CBPOs and continue to run classes without a break for the new FY. Or classes may stop short after oct 1st until the next budget passes.

      • Possible Shoulder Surgery Before PFT-2 - Need Advice!
        Guys the only thing still Pending for me in CASS is my Drug Test and waiting on my BI to clear. My GEO is for Laredo and several others with the same GEO and similar timeline have already gotten the call. My shoulder is causing me a lot of problems and I am pretty sure I have a tear (getting MRI next week). If it is in fact torn and I need to have a surgery to fix it which will take months to recover from what will happen if I get scheduled to take my PFT-2 and I'm still recovering from the surgery? Is there anyone I could call or talk to about possibly postponing the PFT-2 if this happens? (this obviously could not have come at a worse time for me in this process I know!)

              Just take the test and guess the first one (which I think it 20/200)...good luck! Lol
              The requirements are 20/100 uncorrected.

              Well I went today morning and did an eye exam (not sure what good its going to do) and the opthomologist said I should be fine. Which I still don't quite understand what my uncorrected vision has to do with anything. Well I faxed a copy of the exam and I'm going to mail it on monday also, so let's see what they tell me now. Does anyone know if I'm denied again what steps I can take too possibly appeal this or if I'm able to? Hopefully that won't be the case but just in case... Anyone that has received the letter gotten a respinse back from mhc about the situation??

                EOD Sept 12th. I cannot believe how long it has been. I totally did not expect this. EOD NY-OTHER. I am going to leave my location private. It was not my first or second choice but I am happy regardless.

                Academy 9/27/11-2/10/12

                PFT2 coming up. I'll keep you guys posted. My NY friends -- this was the only spot open in NY. I did ask :-/
                so where is it ??

                • Where is what? My port? I am going to keep that private. It's not JFK (since your from NYC you may be wondering).

What was your score on your NOR? My Fitness hasn't updated in CASS yet but I've spoke to MHC and they said I've passed both medical and fitness. VBT took at the airport on the 9th, passed, and we're pretty much in line with everything else, lol.
                    Heh lucky - not so much.. the test room was packed to the brink, sat on the floor of an insanely hot and sweaty room for a few hours but tested a 91 ... I've found that CASS updates sporadically at best, but fortunately haven't had to contact them about anything as things seem to be progressing in an orderly fashion. Are you trying to get into Dulles? I stuck around after my interview and talked to one of the supers and he seemed to like it, would be an ideal place to start just not sure of their needs. The investigator did tell me they wanted his results ASAP, and he let me know that was a good sign. I'll keep you in the loop though, good hunting.

                      I also got a letter in the mail stating that MHC needed more info on my condition in my right eye( light case of Keratonus).
                      I had to go back to the VA and have them finish an eye exam that they started to do three months ago, which was a very detailed exam. Uncorrected in that right eye 20/80 or something like that. corrected 20/20. I had the Veterans Admin send off the paperwork after they filled it out completely, straight back to the Medical Officer. The Doctor said I did fine. 20/20 in both eyes-corrected. I hope so...I come a long way....

                        I would consider yourself lucky. A TO for a non-SWB or Georgia location with a score of 91 no less (A score of 91 is excellent, however I have to imagine there are plenty of VETS out there with 100+ scores due to vet pref points). Congratulations on your progress......your are moving at ludicrous speed!

                            They do not usually use funds to cross f-years. This is my biggest worry. Thats why I want to go before Oct 1 because they could just freeze classes
