    I can do the mile and half in about 12 minutes or less. About 40 push ups in one minute.
    I need to work on my sit ups I can do 25 in one minute that's more like barely passing. 220 yard, I will practice if my background investigation gets cleared

    Good luck tomorrow.
    That right round my abilities.... Push ups 43, mile and 1/2 12:24, 220 34 seconds (but i worked to slow my pace to around 42 seconds to conserve energy) I can get 25 situps in 38 seconds though.... but trust me.....practice the "actual" order of the test give yourself about 3-4 min rest in between each requirement.... Good luck.....and be READY dont wait for anything to clear!!

      • The calls are coming out as of late. Two of my fellow co-workers received "The Call" today (One female and one male) Female chose Brownsville POE and the male is calling back tommorow and will chose Brownsville as well. We all tested 12/2010 I was the lowest with 84% (My math was bad). We all met our BI a week apart with the female meeting hers 7/14 or 7/16ish. I met mine 7/26, and the other male 1 week after me. They scored higher then I did 90 (female) and 94 (male). I guess the calls are coming down in score order. We are all Federal employees with TSA (I re-signed 2 weeks ago to get a job with contracted BOP part-time wasn't cutting it.)

        As for the PFT2 it will be a breeze.
        Push ups in 1 min- 81 and not stressing at all (could have did 100+ if I try.)
        Sit ups 1 min- 36 and stressing!
        1.5 mile- 12 min 13sec and running 1 mile in 7min 15sec.

        As for what Guile said, people running the 1.5mile in like 8 seconds.
        I am a well fit guy 29 years young *smiles* I would not trade being able to bench press 445lbs and 500lbs squats to run my 1.5 mile faster.
        I weigh 215 pounds (lost 10lbs getting ready for the pft2 during this wait).

        Good luck to everyone, and I hope "The Call" comes soon!

            • I will lose my mind in joy once someone post on here that they got the call for LAX/LB, more so if I can see their timeline.

              Going nuts this week at my current job. I think about CBP every day, didn't help that Border Wars was just on the NatGeo channel lol

                  Hey Yoda, any word on how many classes they will have before January. Someone on here said that they start the academy on December 6, I believe.

                    Yup. I feel your pain...i'm in the same boat. Seems like there hasn't been any posts for LAX/LB calls going out. Just stay ready for your PFT 2 the call will come eventually.

                        • I got a call from my BG investigator yesterday. The meeting is set up, so it looks like things are getting squared away. He did mention, though, that my file was listed as "priority." Have any of you encountered this? Does this mean I need to start thinking about packing?

                          My guess is that they're trying to get everyone possible hired using whatever budget is current. I don't think my app is exceptional in any way, but I'm curious if anyone else has seen something similar lately.

                            Heh. My investigator hold me the same. Look at the date I talked to him. Don't live out of boxes just yet.

                              When I met with my investigator he had a deadline to meet in submitting all the pertinent documents(includes your packet and interviewing certain individuals- employer, neighbors, associates- regarding your background investigation. I wouldn't start packing yet. A background still needs to be completed. Every background is different so hopefully yours will be completed soon. But you could start preparing for your PFT2. My background investigation is different from yours however from the time i met with the investigator I was scheduled for the drug test in about 2 months. Finally a few weeks later I was already offered an academy date eventhough my CASS still had my background investigation as pending in the security office.

                                At this point I have no clue of start dates other than what's posted here... The class that arrived yesterday was news to me when I saw them checking in at the dorm.
