      Who knows?

      I've seen just about every horror story proposed as to how cuts would come about. Most tales tend to lean towards cuts by location and as defined as 'non-critical' to the mission.

      My guess, assuming the location/'mission critical' angle holds true, is that newer guys may not necessarily be holding the short straws. I imagine it'll be a "big dog eats little dog" situation and those guys unfortunate enough to be at the bottom of the scrum pile will be the ones left bearing the brunt of the pain.

      In other words, things won't be much different than they are today. Those people who are currently being thrown under the bus and mugged over various issues will more or less be the people who'll be first tossed under the bus and left to be eaten by the sequestration process.

      Then again, I could be wrong. Time will tell.

      • I have an issue I need help with. I need to reschedule my VBT/SI immediately and I am not able to get a hold of anyone in the Oral Board Unit. What are my options?

          Your only option is to get ahold of them :/ I wouldn't pass it up if I were you unless it's an emergency, otherwise I'm not sure if they will even reschedule. Good luck!

Just goes to show you this process is completely unpredictable! I guess IA and MHC don't necessarily need everybody to take the poly till the official 2013 deadline.
            I went and read his post thoroughly. He didn't have to the take the poly because he is a current Border Patrol Agent. He said he joined BP 2.5 yrs ago and had applied for CBP and BP at the same time. BP called first I guess. He is going back home to Detroit by taking the CBP job now.

            In a nut shell, poly is mandatory for all NEW applicants and all who are not employed by DHS.

            • By the way, I called MHC yesterday to get clarification on my process. They told me than whenever my Background is cleared (orginally cleared Nov 6, 2011) that my medical will go pending and I will get that paper to fill out and send back to recert my medical.

              • Had the VBT on Tuesday and did pretty good I think. I didn't get the SI because apparently the proctor doesn't grade the tape there and had to send it to MN for review... I asked if everyone gets the SI when he asked how I was in communication in the process and to wait for further steps...
                I got scared that I failed it but it appears he was the Chief there and likely did not have time to review the answers since it was only thirty minutes wait until I was let out.

                I have the feeling that he made sure the tape worked and then sent off to MN...

                Super worried though, until he says that not all get same day SI and usually have to come back once MN passes the VBT....

                I'll update once I get the dreaded letter to reschedule SI or if I failed...

                  Wish they would just send it out when your year is up. Just causes extra waiting on our end. At this point though we have a masters in waiting haha. I re-read it myself and I didn't notice the first time that he works for BP. I guess that could be why, but don't you have to resign from BP to go over to CBP? Wouldn't that make you a new applicant?

                    Gotcha, my buddy just moved down south for BP, 2 days after he got to his new house, CBP called and offered a Detroit position. I sat right next to him during the test, and scored higher. I was referred to scheduling last Nov, but now have to get my background re-cert. Some say I'll have to poly, some say no. My buddy that called wasn't going to have to. Makes no sense. I'm currently employed for the BP in the radio room in Detroit, so maybe I can skip the poly?

                      Considering that January 13th is on Sunday, I doubt it as well.

                        No and no. He would be employed with OBP all the way up until the moment he became employed with OFO.
