    • Two things:

      1) I took my VBT/SI six weeks from tomorrow (Wednesday). I called today to see what the hold up was on my scores. She said that my videos were sent to Chicago, and that they are not being speedy in getting things done. She seems irritated at them because I guess so many people are calling asking what is going on. No "pass" or "fail" on record yet. Fingers crossed this ball gets rolling...

      2) Here is a local article from a news station talking about how some employers are asking for facebook usernames and passwords. I have nothing to hide on there and would give it to them if they wanted it, but I'm curious if anyone has had this happen during their BI with CBP? If so, I was thinking about just deactivating my account for a while to speed the process up...

        Took my VBT on Tuesday March 13th, had results in the mail (Passed) on Monday March 19th. Not sure what the hold up is. My VBT process did end up including a structured interview as well.

        • Does anyone have the link to the scoring guide for the PFT1 in order to make the score of 80 or above? I saw it a few weeks ago online and now its not on the site anymore.

                Hey, so you know how it says leave no space blank...did you just put none in every other box that you didnt have info for? i only have 2 bank accounts 1 car, etc.


                I guess i should do that but i just want to make sure that is what they mean by that

                  Yes, it's a pain but it is what it is. you can leave some boxes in question 1 blank though.

                      Yes sir. I put NONE in all the blank spaces because the instruction sheet said to mark it as NONE or NA and to not leave anything blank.

                      • For pre-academy when you guys go the CBP.gov site and fill out the forms under the section "Before You Report" there is a section where it states "You may be contacted in the future to complete one of the following security clearance forms: SF-85, Questionnaire for Nonsensitive Positions; SF85P, Questionnaire for Public Trust Positions; or SF-86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions" did you guys fill out any of those?

                        Link that didn't work for the following forms: I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification

                        Also got stumped on a few of the form: State Tax Withholding Certificate, TSP-3 Designation of Beneficiary for Thrift Savings Plan

                          Nope i emailed the equip because i was afraid that I had filled anything out wrong and they said that as long as the e quip was complete and the forms all uploaded correctly it would go to the security office otherwise if a paper was not filled correctly or uploaded then I would have to do the equip all over again. the only thing that the investigator will go over is any questions they might have about what you wrote on there but not if you did not finish a part or upload something. just take your time in filling out the e-quip and once you are going to turn it in start at the beginning and go thru every page and thru the checklist.

                            • i called equip today to see if i can get an update but had to leave a message. I'm just going to send them an email here and there so that they dont forget about me. I have known of cases where they do have the backgrounds but they are not even touched until you call and inquire about them months later. I dont want to take that chance. we will see if they call back.
