They asked about more information from my doctor about my asthma which my doctor says is all good and I could do the work but do you think just because I have asthma they would still disqualify me?
    don't worry about it. they will ask you to get some more testing done to show that it will not hinder you while working. all its going to do is slow up your green check on the med process.

        • Jose45th,

          congrats on getting in and welcome to a decent size group of us heading to San Ysidro. I know of about 8 going there. I'm from New York state. It's going to be quite the change considering I have not been anywhere west of Ohio. Have you done your pft2 yet?

During your poly did the administrator ask you to NOT stay calm or relaxed, but to stay tense? I dont know how these Polygraph administrators sleep at night.
                HTX713 I had the same experience. I took my Poly yesterday and it went just like your friends. Also a lot of people have shared similar stories, and mine is no different. I have more to tell but I am so burnt out from yesterday and the bs this lady said about me that I am just trying to relax and enjoy my weekend, but in the back of my head is this awful experience which I will talk about as soon as I get some rest. It's like they already know who they are going to fail and they have this script they use when they want to do this, because a few people on this forum have also shared the same story. The lie detector is definatly inaccurate because I was 101% Honest. Gringa and everyone else who is going to be polygraphed...they tell you right there and then if you passed of failed...Gringa I am assuming you not being sure on how it will play out, makes me think they must have also told you that you have failed...I hope you haven't and wish you the best but the "administrator" told me right there and then...and yes she was rude about it. What city HTX713 did your friend have his test in? Mine was in Tuscon. I also was surprised like Gringa that the fire alarm went off(ours didnt go off but she warned me about it),also there were no water fountains in the field office...very strange, I even asked and they said they didn't have any. It's been a year and a half long proces, they should Polygraph people FIRST so that way they don't waste there time and money as well as ours!!! The first thing should be the polygraph in the process!!! Once people pass that then have them waste there time in exercising, medical tests, and other bs, but they do things so backwards. It cost me money to stay in a hotel, GAS MONEY(to travel back and forth),time off work, and then when you have been honest the WHOLE time you are told that you have been dishonest... it is hurtful. CBP could also save a lot of money and time if they polygraphed everyone first and it would be to applicants advantage as well, so we don't have to wait a whole year and a half to hear, "oh our machine(which science has proven isn't accurate) thinks your a liar", I think the machine is just a gimmick, the polygrapher decides who they want to keep and not keep...it's like a big scam! I just wish Quality Control will actually do some Quality Control! There will be more to come! If anybody else has had a polygraph experience please vent and share it!

                  Sorry to hear about your experience, I hope it all works out for you. Quite a few months ago, people were sharing stories similar to yours. They were told they failed also, but received a letter a little while later saying they passed. I hope this is true for you too! Keep your head up!

                        I had the same experience a few years ago. Completely rude and according to him and his machine I was lying. From the moment we started it seemed like he had already determined I wasn't going to pass. Sure enough I didn't. I was 100% honest about everything but the machine said otherwise. There was nothing I could do about it either. That's life I guess. Oh and he did tell me I had failed before I left.

                            Your score was automatically extended for another 6 months, I previously contacted MHC to ask the same question and was told that all Nov. 2010 applicant's scores were being extended for an additional 6 months. Good luck.
