      Tip to those that haven't done it: Practice the step test!!
      User don't sweat the VBT/SI, just be relaxed and you will be fine. Ya the step test sneaks up on you right? I went in thinking ok I got this, half way through I was like wow if your not in half way decent shape this can really get you.

        Yuuup, I've been running about 3 miles 3-5 times a week and I went in thinking that it wouldn't be a big deal but it was still a challenge. I'm sure I'll do well on the VBT and that I'll pass, but still, it's nerve recking knowing your future hangs in the balance and determined by one single event. Thanks for the advice.

        • just had a quick question for those attempting to get picked up as a GS-7 with college credits/degree, when did you send your OFFICIAL transcripts? I spoke to someone at MHC a while back when i did the E-quip and she instructed me to wait until I met with the BI, so i have not been any rush to send them and i am just waiting (which is fine, as we all know there is a lot of waiting) but just wanted to see where everyone stood as far as that goes.

            I sent one up front since I had classes in progress, and then a second after graduation. Four weeks later, got the call.

                          Congratulations. Hopefully I will join you at the academy pretty soon. I have a quick question. Did you retake the PFT1 or the medical? I noticed that they cleared for you over a year ago. My PFT1 and medical cleared on July of last year. So, I am concerned that I have to retake them pretty soon. My CASS is all green but I again I am concerned that I have to retake some of the steps before getting the call. Anyway, good luck for you.

                          • Well took my VBT/SI today, they did not tell me that I passed but from the conversations we had after the SI, im pretty sure that I did well. It was pretty easy, just the wait time between the VBT and the SI was nerve racking.Well, I only have the drug test and BI left now.

I know I'll be in this port for at least a couple of years, but I'm especially interested in going overseas with the Container Security Initiative, or seeing other parts of the country at least within the agency. Are these realistic goals, at least after making GS-11?

                              Thanks for any information you may have.
                              Maybe.

                              Are you thinking of 'permanent' moves...or temporary assignments?

                              Short-term TDYs are not that hard to pick-up...after a couple or so years on. More permanent moves are less easy to obtain...but a lot of that depends on what you bring to the table and how selective you are as to where you might go.

                              If you bring a lot of KASOs into the agency and/or obtain a lot of KASOs during your first few years working for CBP, then things like a placement in CSI might be within reach. If you're willing to go anywhere, such as the CNMIs, Whitlash, MT or Skagway, AK...the likelihood of moving about also might be within reach.

                              You might have to wait until you've earned your GS-12 though.

                              Mer.

                                I have the same concern, Yoda told me that it's good for 1 year. I have a friend though that was in the process that didn't have to retake till after two years, or so he says. I sent an email yesterday to MHC to find out. I'll let everybody know what they tell me. East2west any insight you can give us would be much appreciated. Oh and congrats!!! I see you tested in 12/2010 in Philadelphia, so did I. Hopefully I'll be following you to fletc. Good luck
