Im not trying to be a downer but I didnt want you to get too excited about the process. I've been in your shoes. I was finished my whole process in less than 4 months (the time I took my test till I had all green checks in CASS). Now, I'm waiting for a funded position. Dont quit your day job just yet!! It will happen and I hope the best for you, but they have a bunch of people waiting in the line in front of you, me being the first in line for my location.
    You're right...my appologies. I'm confusing PFT1/2 for the TSL1/2. It's actually kind of releaving to hear that I will likely slow down at some point. THough, I love the idea of potentially jumping in right away to a CBPO position, I am also looking at a couple of other opportunities, and I was hoping to get a little bit of time to weigh them all out against each other. Didn't really wan to go to FLETC only to have to go BACK for another academy class. THanks for the truth and the tips JonnyLaw.

Yeah...I agree...from everything I see it feels REALLY quick. Not that I'm complaining about it by any menas (though it does really suck for the brothers that have been waiting for half an eternity). I just dont understand it. I honestly hope that it continues straight on thru to Glynco.

      Here is what my CASS says...I'm new at this so y'all tell me if this looks normal or not (I got my NORs on Aug 30th, one day previous to getting my TO.

      Pre-Employment Forms -pending- One or more of your forms may have not been received. You will be contacted if additional documentation is required.

      Qualifications -pending- A review of your work experience and/or education is still pending.

      Medical Exam -pending- You will be contacted to schedule your medical examination.

      Structured Interview -pending- Your interview has been scheduled.

      Drug Screening -pending- Your drug test is pending at this time.

      Background Investigation -pending- We have not received the background investigation documentation which is required to begin your investigation.

      Fitness -pending- A clinic has been assigned for your fitness test. You will be contacted to schedule your examination.

      I received my VBT for 09/29
      Strange... I have the same thing in my CASS other than the background section says they've received my forms; however, I haven't been given a date for the VBT/SI... I e-mailed MHC last week and haven't heard anything. I guess I'll call the SI unit tomorrow to find out.

      • To all of the new testers and people without timelines listed: Please go to settings at the top of the page and click signature on the left side, and enter your timeline. This way we can all see each others timelines. 2011 testers: 95% of the people finish all the steps in 3 to 4 months (excluding bi). If you would just read what is on cbp.gov it states "we will try to schedule your pft1 within 30 days of your TO". ALSO ON CBP.GOV "IF YOU FAIL ANY PART OF THE PFT2 YOUR OFFER WILL BE RESCINDED AND YOU WILL HAVE TO REAPPLY." CASS only updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays!!!! There is no point of checking on any other day. Sometimes CASS is a week behind what actually is. Personally I would be scared if I got a TO before NOR for the 2011 test, because odds are you are going to a place nobody else wanted. High demand poes have a long line of people waiting. CASS PHONE LINE WAS DISCONNECTED. Now go workout! Just kidding. Stay safe.

          Yoda. Say i dont pass the pft2, do i still go to fletc? and then try to pass it there before i graduate? because 6 1/2 months of training is more than enough for me to pass no offense for the girl that failed.
          On week 18, six instruction days from graduation, we had someone in my class fail the fitness graduation standard (FGS) by 20-something seconds on the 1.5 mile run. She nearly completed 83 of 89 training days and was only six days from graduation and was sent HOME because she thought she could get in shape during her training at FLETC. Not to sound harsh, but I am sure she also thought, "19 weeks of training is more than enough time for me to pass."

          Come prepared BEFORE you step foot in the academy. The fitness standards are not that difficult -some would say they're a complete joke- but they're no walk in the park.

            • As an SWB applicant, is there a way to request a specific port? Would doing so actually make a difference?

                      At this point it is way beyond me on how they come about these decisions. I took my fair share of licks waiting 4 years for this job, but this is somewhat ridiculous.
                      Yeah that does bother me too but since it seems to only be happening for the SWB locations it doesn't really affect me as much as later testers actually skipping me over. I initially had an interim BI clearance the first time around, so yeah it would be nice if they just keep that up or let me go to FLETC with a pending background since they are doing that for other. But I'm over it. the only thing I am hoping for right now it to be called before FY13, and it would be awesome if they would also match my pay by the time they get around to me.

                        I too am awaiting a spot for MIA. I hit TSU in February of 2009. What the hell is going on? I understand that you can't get the call while a process is pending, but come on, I've been waiting for years. My background expired AGAIN early this year and I waited and waited and waited for the investigator to call me. Now all these people that just tested are getting hired immediately. Any advice from the forum members? Who should I call? I don't even have a current number for CASS or MHC since they changed everything and moved. By the time the background investigation clears, something else will be pending. It is a never ending cycle. Is there anything I can do?
                        My drug test was pending for months, I never got called for it even after I did another physical. I started emailing MHC and never really got a response, then suddenly it went green in cass without ever taking a new drug test.

                                This might be a stupid question but are you allowed to wear a watch while doing these tests, so you can monitor your time to see if you have to step it up or not?
