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.

      just read what i said before about swb....other than that if you can handle that culture shock then do it...

      ALSO...changing you pref would not necessarily help you move faster when they are thousands of other applicants choosing swb, as well as switching over to swb, you do not keep your place "in line" once you switch, you are then thrown to the back of the line of all the other swb, in some cases you are better off staying where you were......just a little fyi

            So, for all the new cats on here, have patience. It will probably take you less than 5 years to get in.

            Congrats. The good thing is you get to stay at home too. That was my first option in 2008 but by now I changed it to SWB. Still waiting on BI.....Good Luck

              • To all the newbies on here.. if you got your NOR and your Applicant ID number, you should log in to CASS (https://apps.cbp.gov/cass/index.asp) and read the March Newsletter for CBP Applicants. Most of the questions you are asking in here are covered in great detail in the newsletter. Topics cover everything from changing your GEO to the BI, and everything else related to the hiring process.

                    I switched to the SWB maybe 1 week after I got my NOR and I tested on 02 April 12, so you should not have to wait a long time... It took exactly 1 month from taking the test to receiving my TSL1 & 2, thats with me also changing my geo from East Texas to SWB.

                    • Had my VBT and SI today.

                      What can I say? I think/hope I did well. After a couple of answers I kicked myself in the behind for not having said more but hopefully I showed/said enough to pass it.

                      It's gonna be grueling to wait for that answer

                        • Does anybody know what FLETC is like? Is it like Military style or more like a college atmosphere? How is the rooming? Do you have a roommate or does everyone sleep in a common area like the military? I'm just curious.

                          • I tested in chicago on April 4th, 2012. Got my NOR a week later. I scored an 83 and my region is florida. I dont think I have a chance to get a TSL anytime soon with my score and the region I choose. The only thing can help me is the fact that i am Bilingual Spanish/English but I dont think they look at my resume at all, It is all about the score.

                              • Has anyone ever taken their SI/VBT with a goatee and passed ? I have my interview next week and was wondering if I should shave it off or not. I currently work for a police dept and interviewed 5 years ago and they didn't judge me because of it and I got the job. Will customs judge for the interview ? I understand already for the academy and some ports you cannot have goatee's. Any advice will be very helpful. Thanks in advance !
