    In addition to the extension on the CBP posting, if CBP really decides to hold off on the hiring until 2014, then they will first close the posting, then stop calling people for PFT1, Medical, VBT/SI, and PFT2, and etc.. I just got a call today for Medical, so I don't think the hiring freeze was for real.

        • Hi all,

          Doing my medical tomorrow and just realize that they also test the uncorrected vision when they have the vision test. Can a bad uncorrected vision make someone fail the medical? My vision are -6.00 and -5.25, and I wear contacts/glasses. Thanks..

            someone i know who was/is in the process (just got eod) had the same issue (i WAS just as bad with a -7.25) he was offered to get a second opinion from his doctor or go for the LASIK process. He got the LASIK and retested 3 Months after the LASIK and passed. That was his experience, I just got LASIK done and it was worth everthing I paid. Hopefully it works that same way for you, at least i had the ehads up early and now i can pass on the first shot.

                  disregard, ended up giving them a call to be on the safe side.
                  thanks, ctm045 for the response, i was informed that it was not needed until the background phase and I still need to do medical and fitness before it is required.

                    I contacted my school and requested that my transcript be sent to MHC back when I completed my initial forms. I would just put in the request from your school(s) now so they can add it to your file.

                      thanks, i guess it wouldn't hurt. worst comes to worst i can always resend it, if they need it again.

                        My uncorrected vision came back too low so I received paperwork in the mail to have myself re-checked by my own eye doctor. Sometimes the technology being used for your initial eye exam is from the stone ages so your own doctor can usually get a better reading on your vision.

                          • It is true about calling to IA. I called them to ask about my BI, leave a message and then they called me back. They told me that my BI is in polygraph pending and they could call me soon for schedule. I also asked, what about if I'm living in another state?, and they said that I could take a closer location for the polygraph when they call me. It was a good idea to call them because I was waiting for 6 months w/o notice. Thank you Rms16 for your advice. I'm still waiting but with some extra information.

                                SWB, I considered other locations but decided to take the most likely opening. I guess I have to start a timeline now.
