    Maybe about a month or so. I've been so busy with work that I did a small mental note and moved on with my day.
    I got the call Tuesday morning.

      Just wanted to drop my timeline for any of those who are in a similar boat.

      Written exam: 8/2011
      NOR: 9/2011
      TSL 1: 5/2012
      TSL 2: 8/2012
      Med-PFT1: 10/2012 passed
      VBT-SI: 11/2012 passed
      Poly: 12/2012 passed
      BI: 1/2013 passed
      EOD 3/2013
      FLETC 4/2013

      BI was pretty quick and painless. The reference checks were annoying, but I guess that all comes with Territory.

      I still have to take the PFT2, but for other places I had to do the cooper standard's test and I don't have any reservations on not passing the PFT2.
      Congrats Train, that's great news! I'm sure you will kill it at the PFT2.

      • Hello,
        Got a call today with 3 offers. Laredo, Texas; Presidio, Texas; Columbus New Mexico.
        Anyone here familiar with Laredo, Texas port? Will it be easy to transfer down the line? And how is living over there since I am considering to move from San Francisco.

          Coming from San Francisco, you will be in for major culture shock at any of these locations. Especially Presidio. Laredo is the best.... of the choices you have been given. I work for the USBP so I can't really say you will not be able to transfer one day but a friend of mine is a CBPO at Tecate POE and he says it can be done but it is difficult. I promise it will be easier to transfer as a CBPO as opposed to a PA with the USBP. Good Luck with whatever you decide.

              Congrats Frisco, what's your timeline like? If you don't mind me asking.

              • By seeing other people breeze through the process and get offers way quicker than me, I have just come to the conclusion that my time will come and I will not compare myself and situation to any body else's. Congrats to all who have been receiving offers lately!

                • got "the call" yesterday as well....

                  Nogalas, AZ
                  Presidio, TX
                  Larado, TX
                  Columbus, NM

                  unfortunately for personal reasons it is not my time to continue on in the process. I also wasn't about to accept an offer just to end up possibly declining/dropping it later and taking a spot away from some of you other candidates that should have the opportunity. It is a bit sad to go all this way have it sitting in front of me a great job but I feel I made the right choice for me. I can reapply when the next announcement comes out. Hopefully things for me will be worked out by then.

                  best of luck everyone, i will continue to hang around and help if i can.

                  • There are still spots available for April's academy. I actually had to deny those 3 offers. Waiting for second and last phone call with different ports.
                    p.s Will post my timeline after I get off work.

                          I can tell you that Columbus is about an hour away from El Paso. There is NOTHING in Columbus so more than likely you will be living near the outskirts of El Paso.

                            • Hey guys wondering if anyone can provide me with info Laredo. I'm leaving March 11th, I would like to know is this a city I can live in (single from NJ) or is there a close city most CBPO prefer to commute from?

                              Comment


                              • Okay guys, I got the call this morning at 0823 PST. I was offered both CBPO and BPA positions. CBPO: I was offered Presido, Laredo, and Columbus. BPA: I was offered RGC and Falfurrias. I had already told myself that if I was going to be forced to leave San Diego for both positions that I would end up taking BP. If they would have offered anything in California, I would've loved to have stayed and I would have gone with CBP. But hey, at least by declining CBPO, I left a spot open for one of you I wish everyone here the best of luck, you guys have been my anchor and moral support, without this forum I would have gone insane a long time ago lol.
