    Oh and I GOT THE CALL for Seattle!!!

    It's been a long 3 1/2 years since my TO. I EOD on April 9 and Academy on May 11.

    Ah...shucks...it was nothing.

    Seriously, congrats and good luck.

              Yeah trying to stay positive. Unfortunately I think I might be getting laid off soon enough so I'm hoping I get the call and can bounce from this place.

              Yeah the weather is not a big deal for me. If anything at all maybe it'll help me shed a few pounds lol. As for bugs, I've spent time in Vietnam during the summer and if you can handle that then it should be a breeze lol. Congrats for you thought seriously gives me a lot of hope since you have almost an identical time frame to mine... keeping fingers and toes crossed.

              Yeah mine was pretty fast I have to admit. But someone on here got picked up super fast and had even a shorter process then me. Then again there are a lot of factors like say if you had multiple jobs or lived in multiple places. I obviously didn't fit that category lol. Wow your BI never met with you? Thats kind of weird. Did you try following up with MHC? Did any of your references get hit up?

                        Most people start out at step one. The main exception to that would be people with previous federal government employment.

                          Starting salary...

                          Usually, it's GS-05/01. If you qualified for and were offered a GS-07, then it's likely a GS-07/01.

                          Anyhow...it should be buried somewhere in all the stuff CBP sends you sometime after accepting the job and before reporting for pre-academy.

                            Roughly every 9-15 days until the end of September.

                            Expect future class dates to be canceled, modified and otherwise manipulated as needed by the agency.

                            • For everyone waiting on results from their VBT/SI completed around 2/8/12: One of my friends (a current CBPO) talked to his supervisor (who conducted my SI) and found out that mine was JUST assigned today! I'm not sure if "today" is actually today, or yesterday. I got an email from him around 4:30am. But nonetheless, I feel relieved knowing that no news didn't mean bad news! Hopefully we'll get our PASS scores really soon!
