    Well when you go onto cbp.gov under border patrol faq, it says that while at the academy you get a small daily allowance for incidental expenses, whatever that may be. So I was wondering if customs gets the same thing.
    I guess you are talking about per diem. The per diem that I received going through the academy was two dollars a day. I believe the current rate is five dollars a day. You are not going to break the bank on per diem at the academy because lodging and food is provided.

        • I have all green checks in CASS except Pre-employment forms and Qualifications. I am also a BPA applicant (Pre-employment forms and Qualifications are green) and received my TSL-1 for CBPO right around the second week of July. Can someone in a similar situation tell me how long did it take them to clear pre-employment forms and Qualifications?

              • Is each section of the entrance exam weighted separately? Is it possible to fail the Math portion and pass the rest? I've been studying like crazy but I don't know if I'll be ready in time.

                      I believe you must pass each individual section as well.

                          If you study using the math questions on the practice test you will be fine. I only studied those type of math problems and using the study guide provided by the Gov. I had a pretty decent score. Well the study guide and youtube hahahahaha. Seriously youtube helped me out a lot.

                          • Thanks grunt! I have studied them but they don't do a lot of explaining. I'll try Youtube.

                            • I'm currently considering changing my Geo from NY to SWB because I'm a recent graduate and I don't want to be another person doing nothing with a degree. My question is about how soon would they call for the PFT 1 and SI? and when they do call all the testing would be somewhere in the SWB right. They wouldn't give me a direct port for the process to continue on?

                              • NYC...seriously consider that decision. I moved cross country for a job and if hindsight were 20/20...

                                Do it only if its somewhere you really want to live. If it isn't you'll have traded a lot for a job.
