    Also how long does the test score last? i know it until they change the test but will that be for another few years? any input would be appreciated.
    You should definitely get a t.o. It only took me like 2 weeks to get a t.o. for michigan with an old test score of 90. Thats extremely fast compared to the usual time frame, so im sure you'll get one before your test score expires. also if they didnt take scores of 78, they wouldnt have the cutoff set at 70.

    • So while at pre-academy Ive heard a rumor about how they may have put bunk beds in the Taj at FLETC... can anyone confirm this or hopefully its just some BS the people at Miami are giving us, the rookies.

      Thanks.

      • Lasik

        Just got a letter from DHS informing me that they need additional information on me due to me having Lasik performed about 7 yrs ago. They sent me a form to be filled out by an optometrist for a post evaluation. I was wondering can I be disqualified or has anyone ever been disqualified because of the surgery?????

          I took my test in 06 and they accepted it for the 08 announcement, so it should be good for 2 years unless they changed it.

              Tentative Offer, can also be called a Conditional Offer (CO) depending on who you're talking to.

              "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                They just want to make sure that the surgery was successful and there was no damage. They want additional info about many different conditions, I had one that needed to be explained. It all came out alright.

                  It's just pre-academy prep at your home port. They have plenty of tasks and such to get you prepared for FLETC. It's 4-5 weeks long.

                    Same here. Not a big deal as long as you can see, and you don't have any lingering side effects that would prevent you from getting OC'd in the face......

                      Really? I thought all that had to be done was the typical paperwork, badge pictures and the like, which I can't picture lasting 4-5 weeks. Is it just administrative training or something?

                        A few things to prepare you- mainly just classes - on the computer and in person.

                          5. If I have already taken the test, do I have to take it again?

                          It depends. If you passed the test, your score is good for one year after which time you may extend your test score. If you failed the test, you are disqualified from retaking the test for 1 year and the announcement must be open for registration. If a new test is developed, everyone must retest in order to remain on the inventory.


                          Sounds like you can ask for a test score extension. They are somewhat vague in their wording.

                            Basically the pre academy consists of turning in all your paperwork (payroll, TSP, health insurance etc etc), then its all about "pre-training" you for your training at FLETC... meaning its basic law reviews, visa classes, things that you will use on the job, videos, safety classes, etc... basically I suggest you take your time doing all of the training classes that they give you, because no it does not take 4 weeks... I am in week two and I am going back through the training ive already done just to refresh the things ive read, simply because ive got 2 weeks left and all of my training is pretty much done... so take your time and try to understand everything they give you. Its boring so taking breaks and walking around to wake up several times a day to make sure you are somewhat focused is probably a good idea.

My background investigator told me that it's hard to tell when an adjudicator will read a report but that CBP sends officers to FLETC even before an adjudicator reads their report. Hopefully it does take 3 to 4 weeks to clear. Maybe we'll be in the same class at FLETC. What location did you apply for?
                              Virginia. I'm hoping for Dulles Airport because it is only a few miles from home, and the officer who did my VBT told me they are short about 50 CBPO's from where they need to be. I would assume that means some OT is available.

                                You dont have to request anything. They will keep honoring a passing score, as long as the test doesnt change
