      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.
      the switch finally went thru the other day, I called MHC because I received no response back and they said they lost a bunch of emails. So it is taken care of now, they should be sending out more TSL this week the person i spoke with said the 100-110 went out first then straight down from there.

      According to MHC if you switch your Geo you do not go to the bottom but stay in score order and as they send out TSL they go from the lowest score to the top so even if you switch late (get a 95 and decide to switch) you should receive one when they do there next group of scores even if it is a group around a score of 70, apparently everyone above gets another notification or something.

      • Thanks for all the well wishes. I think I did well on the VBT/SI. Time will tell, should hear back within a couple of weeks. Also whoever gave the advice that your best preparation is none is the best advice you will get on the VBT/SI. Just go with scenarios and be yourself like the CBP VBT guide says. I think that's just about all I can say about it but it was a lot of fun.

        • Awesome! Great advice. So then when you fail the VBT you can blame it on the fact that they didn't like the real you! LOL jk And to the people getting offended on this forum: I'm with the Rodney King guy... Don't take everything in such a defensive manner! We're here to help each other.

            I live 20 minutes away from Brownsville. It's a good sized city but the traffic kind off sucks with all the drivers from Mexico. The people and food are good though! Plus there is always Harlingen or other towns close enough to drive if you don't want to live in Brownsville. South Padre Island isn't too far away if you're a beach person.

              Good luck to you sir. I've been waiting for an entire weekEND for that answer and I'm already getting restless. Wanna hold hands while we wait? LoL

                haha, I guess so...I was nervous when they said to come back in a few minutes so they could grade my VBT. Although, I was instantly relieved when they said OK, lets begin your SI. Everything after that was smooth sailing. *knock on wood*

                  I'm sure you did great.

                    haha let's do it. Not to get you over excited but I know someone on this board who took the VBT/SI and got it cleared in CASS 7 days later!

                    I don't really care how long it takes as long as it clears in CASS!

                        • By the way facial hair:

                          If you show up with facial hair, you are either told to shave or to keep it trimmed. So my advice is if you want to keep your facial hair, show up with it and keep it neat. Otherwise you will be reprimanded, unless you have a legitimate reason. Big reason for a many of us is that we start to break out or develop skin irritation from shaving daily.

                            A basic breakdown is that a service port is a larger port that provides specialized services to smaller ports. (Entry Specialists, Import Specialists, etc.) and additional admin and managerial support. Detroit might send out specialized people as needed but the base port of Grand Rapids is in Grand Rapids.

                            If you care to drop in for a visit.

                            I was there today, they said "Gerald ford does not have a CBP"
