            No I didn't. An agent came out after I had finished doing a survey, and said that they were done for the day, and that they would get back to me within 2-3 weeks. Do you think that means anything?

              That usually means that you didnt pass the vbt. Usually if you have the vbt and pass it, you have the structured interview right after.

                Ragerian, cowboysrule is right that usually means you didn't pass the VBT. I have seen some ppl take it at other times but not many. So keep your hopes up maybe they just didn't have the officers to do the SI that day.

I went to the bathroom to freshen up and she started to leave. I ran after her but it was too late she was already out the front door.

                  Then I woke up and realized it was a dream. I check CASS again (since it's a Thursday) and still no update. Oh well, I guess it's back to reality. Happy Thursday to you all. lol
                  That is crazy man. I figured you were dreaming bc why would she be waking you up? Haha I was like what did she break in? Haha that is a crazy dream and such a tease. Sorry Iamwolf it will happen soon don't worry. Hey look at me I've already met mine and I'm still waiting over a year later so meeting your investigator isn't everything lol.

                      I don't know it's driving me nuts though. I have a lot of family living out of country and my wife was born in Colombia. On the other side I have great credit, great work history, all ex-employers and references spoke very highly of me, as did everybody my investigator spoke to. Hey you never know maybe we will meet at fletc, I just hope that its soon.

                      • Does anyone know why CBP doesn't require a psychological test as part of the pre-employment hiring process?

                        Pretty much all LE agencies require them.

                          Well I hope that isn't the case =/ I've read in past posts that there were cases where the SI and the VBT took place on seperate occassions. I guess I'll stay optimistic since the officer did say that the crew was done for the day

                                I will be there as well... Where are you all going to be stationed? I still have my pft2, which is scheduled for next Wednesday, but I am praying that I make it thru! My shins are kicking my butt, but I WILL push thru!

                                Oops... I'm sorry, Fer, I just realized you put your duty location.
