    86% not bad though. But you will be called eventually. Congrats on getting a high score. Did you print out the same study guide on usamanager.gov website? Because I'm studying from that specific guide.

    • First off, let me say congrats to all that has gotten the "CALL!!!" I am so happy and proud of you guys. 1 year has been 1 too many, can just imagine for the people with 3 years or more that was waiting.

      I did my drug test today, meeting with my BI confirmed in a phone call todayfor next tuesday and my medical cleared today!!!! so today was a good day. hopefully I will see you guys soon.....

          An e-mail got sent out today that mentioned the deadline was pushed back because the fingerprint cards were delayed in being sent out. The email stated the cards were sent out today and would take about 5 business days to arrive.

          I can now access cass, but everything for me says pending? Are your pre-employment forms and qualifications cleared?

          • Just to put it out there... In the last 2 weeks there has been 2 new classes started here 46 in one and 24 in the last one. Next week there should be a new one as well of about 38, pretty soon we'll look out and see a sea of CBP blue all over FLETC...

                  What location did you pick? The SWB has the most hiring needs.

                        I am thinking bout changing to bout changing locations, but i really dont know if i can stay in those locations especially since most of the locations are directly on the border and not at airports. I am from NY and it was already a stretch for me to be willing to me down south, but southwest, I just dont know.

                        Anyone on here currently work in the southwest region or no someone that does, that can can give me an incite on how life is down there, i can just imagine, being in the dessert in the middle of nowhere lol
                        I would be curious to know this as well.

                          Oh ok cool! Yea, I just started studying it seems decent but I am not a fan of math. I know it may be simple but I just despise math allot. Any heads up on the exam? Or is it straightforward explanations from the study guide ?

                            I only used the study guide, I printed it out as well, I don't know if they're still doing the PDF file for it but it's easier to look at a printed guide rather than a computer screen. Just stick to the guide, it seemed to have worked well for me.

                              It took about 5 months to clear but mine was pretty easy I don't have much on my list so it must have been pretty easy good luck with yours, try not to think about it it's torture
