        Wow, you got a call very quickly. Are you currently in the Border Patrol? Had you ever applied for CBPO before?

          You can say that again, it's very frustrating. I don't know if you would be able to get a good answer here about that. Maybe Yoda could help, but your best bet is probably to call MHC.

            Mnewsom21 is right, those early steps go by semi quick, it all changes once you hit the BI brick wall. Not to mention the line for the poly is longer then the gas lines here in New York.

              • ok so I took my poly about a month ago and the agent told me I passed but that I could still be contacted to retake it since some of my answers showed some form of deceit. does anyone know how long it normally takes to receive any type of response from them or if they even contact you at all after the poly?

                • How does the locality pay work? I understand certain areas have a higher cost of living but what is the pay difference? For example I look at SD county and find this:
                  FIPS: 06073
                  CBPO
                  Exam: Pass 88 6/28/11
                  Geo: SWB
                  Qual: Passed
                  Medical: Passed
                  Pft1: Passed 59 Situps 83 Pushups
                  BI: Pending
                  VBT/SI: Passed
                  Drug Test: Passed
                  Poly: 9/10/12
                  PFT2: ?

                      What comes first, the Poly or the BI meeting?

                      I know how long it can take to get on the job. I thought I wasn't going to get a TSL for at least another year or 2 but here I am. Who knows with this stuff.
