      I just changed my geo from Central East Coast to SWB, you think i made a bad decision? I only scored an 85 and i figured it would not be high enough to get consideration right away up in this wrea

        Could be bad or could be a great move by you. Even a high score probably wont get consideration in a year, maybe two. I know they are still hiring from 2009 tests right now for JFK. If your goal is get a good job quickly, then you're good. If you only really want to work in NY, well then theres really no telling when you could get back. Keep your pref for the north east and the wait could be 2-5 years, or they may never give you a TO at all.

        My only advice is to try and not predict everything (or anything) with this process. Just do what is right for you at this time in your life.

                wear a suit. plan on dockers/polos after that for a bit. i'll ask some people in class tomorrow, but i thought they were in jeans/polos every day after they were sworn the first day.

                  My vbt took about 45 minutes. I was then instructed to wait for the SI that took about another hour. I was out in less than 3 hours.

                    • I just received a call to schedule my polygraph test. Is this a good sign or a bad sign considering I've heard of stories of people not having to take one?

                            Hopefully they'll pick us ASAP lol. My boy (who I was going to go
                            To FLETC with, who also happened to live close to me) has been training for about a month now. We talk a few times a week. FLETC is no joke but that's what's so exciting about it. Can't freakin wait.

                            • hey guys,

                              so for those of you who used to watch border wars( till they stopped totally recording i assume), there used to be an episode where there were these cbpos or ice agents?(can't remember which one) went into a mans house and seized all his computers and began searching through the hard drives to apprehend the man for child pornography. i was wondering , are there any positions in cbp for computer forensics/digital forensics? considering on getting my certification in digital forensics(eventually my masters) after my bachelors and i just remembered that episode. i believe it was somewhere SW, not really sure, but i do remember seeing it on border wars. If cbp will make me wait, might as well keep myself busy trying to make myself marketable against people way more qualified than me
