I don't know where you got the impression that CBP will pay for your lodging and food while on pre-academy... but that's not how it works, and if it is for you, then CBP is in for a lot of back pay.
    Best of Luck in which ever route you choose to follow...

I tested in August of 2008, it's insane that we are being grouped together being that you both tested a year ago. I'm Jason btw...stay in touch.
    .

    Hey JD yea im fluent in spanish but i believe u get tested while your at fletc, and yea it is pretty crazy that we were picked up so quick, definetly very fortunate i know many who have beem waiting and are still waiting down here in miami. One of my good friends who tested in dec 2010 was picked up in september and he is already at the academy and returns a week before i go to fletc, and definetly keep in touch , by the way were you guys picked up as gs 5 or 7 ? I was lucky enough to get gs 7

        By any chance for those of you who recently got selected for miami on dec 19 did u already receive info on when the ptf 2 will be conducted ?

            Yeah, I take my PFT 2 a week from friday, I chose to take it near San Diego. Also, they offered me GS-7. Check your email, they contact you about the fitness test via email.

              For boots either bring a pair with a polish-able toe or you can find some in/around FLETC.
              What's up with the boots? What exactly is the purpose? Uniform?

              • Got the call for LAX!

                I'm speechless. I'm sitting here in the break room on lunch all by myself on a very slow day and got the call. The guy on the phone scared me lol


                1. I got LAX! I was really hoping for this over long beach
                2. I graduate on my birthday in mid july!

                EOD: Dec 19th

                Academy: March 15

                Pft2: waiting on that email, but somewhere in san diego he said

                I've put my life on hold for the last couple years for this job and I swear people have thought I'm crazy about this process. I tested in August 08 when people were getting picked up in a year or less.

                To add: that's nearly 3 months of pre academy? Mid Dec I EOD, academy starts mid March

                  Congrats Dave, I also tested in August, 2008. It's such a relief to get the call after waiting for so long. When I got the call a couple weeks back, the officer even said something about how long I've been waiting. Anyway, glad you got hired. I live in Orange County, CA, but I have to move back home to take the job in Miami. Hopefully if everything works out, they'll let me transfer to LAX in a couple years or so.

                  Oh, btw...the fitness test will be in Chula Vista, near the border. I'm taking it there next friday morning. Not sure if you'll have the same date.

CBP is NOT going to pay for your food and lodging for the three months before you are scheduled to go to the academy. CBP will cover your transportation from your Port to the academy and from the academy back to your Port. CBP will cover your food and lodging while you are IN the academy in Georgia. CBP is NOT going to pay one single dime to cover your lodging or food in Douglas AZ.

                    Thank you. I had the same guy on the phone today when he called back, I brought it up and he gave me the "ohhhhh, sorry, I thought you said xxxx not xxxx", so yup definitely a misunderstanding.

                    I appreciate the help. Now I just need to find an apartment and more reliable car for those 3 months, eek.

                      Not everyone. This subject came up in July of this year. This was my post..

                      "Took the exam in April '08. I am the supervisor of the international department for a large private company. Previous job I did imports/exports and unloaded trucks/trains for CBPO's so they could inspect. Currently working on 2nd background. Approved for GS-7. "

                      Left that job Friday 11/18...started with CBP Monday of this week .

Housing does not seem to be at capacity, only thing I've heard of is some people have been moved around for various building work but otherwise I'd definitely expect to have your own room here for the Dec. 6th class. If I hear anything different, will inform. Congratulations on the job, we'll see ya in Dec !

                        Edit: *while you can't tack anything to the dorm walls, there is a good sized bulletin board you can stick pictures on if you bring any.
                        Thanks, I'll let the other guys know. They will be happy to hear that. Can't wait to get there!

                        • As for the boots question - yes, uniform until you get your issued footwear (2+ weeks)

                          Edit: Found out today that our Training Coordinator is *****. Do you anything about who he is or how he runs his class?

                          Sorry but I cannot confirm nor deny knowing any instructor on campus (you'll be briefed on this mindset soon heh) but I can assure you the level of instruction here is incredible. Get paid to workout and do what you love, really can't beat it.

                            Yea, I understand. I should have thought that question through before I posted it. Sorry

                                Good luck on your test, mine is the following day. I've been so sick the past few days, I would have passed out if I tried to run. I'm planning on running a lot monday-thursday to be in top shape. I'm flying into Miami on December 15th. How about you? I also need to buy a car since I got rid of mine before I moved out to the west coast. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

                                I'll def give you my cell number via PM.
