    I have the same problem. As long as your uncorrected is no worse than 20/100 (which is dang near blind) you should be okay. I had my medical sent back with request to have my eye dr review, notate his findings and sign. What is your uncorrected?

    • Hi Chris thanks for you input, well my vision is the only thing I worry about because without corrective glasses it is pretty bad. I believe the 20/100 is the second line in the poster they usually test you on correct? Well without the glasses I can barely see the big letter and a bit blury, I might be able to make out the second line if I squint a bit. Hopefully I do make it out :/ I wonder if the test is on a poster like they usually test you everywhere.

      • My boy girl got the call to EOD for GA. Guess calls are going out for that region. Keep hope alive all.

            There's no actual letter sent out that I can recall... it'll just go green on CASS. Simply because they call you a week after for the drug test doesn't mean that you passed. A couple of weeks after being here at FLETC I received the TO for BPA, I have not shown up for any of the steps and they keep calling... just an example so you get the idea.

            You can have your signature on your actual profile here instead of actually typing it in every time you post... Thought you should know.

            • I just dropped out of the process for BPA. It's pointless that you need to fill out more than 1 application for this, get more than 1 med clearance, go to more than one interview/vbt/panel. Crud is what it is.

              • They do send a letter stating your eligibility after the VBT/SI. I took both the BP and CBP interviews in July and received letters for both.

                • Though I had to take two different fitness exams, the medical exam was good for both applications. I'm just glad that important items, like the BI, are good for both applications. It could be worse... Most federal jobs do not allow any process substitutions between applications.

                    • Hello,
                      Just wondering if you reside in one state but your GEO preference is in another & if you get the call how much time do they give you to pack up your apartment before reporting for EOD. Do they give you sufficient time? What's the process? Thanks

                          You really don't know how the "G" works... waste is almost the name of the game. Once you've been in the system for a while you'll see...

                            I had 8 days notice, with my PFT-2 4 days prior to EOD... and I was going from California to Florida. You'll have 1-2 weeks if you're lucky.

                              • Between now and Oct. 01 I wouldn't be surprised to see 'drop-of-the-hat' EODs. I imagine with most called in the next few weeks they'll be looking to bring them on-board by 09/30...at the latest.
