          Agreed. That sucks.

          Damn, 2008. I hate the same exact thing so I can relate to you. Answering all those questions is the worst!

            I can relate to that, you got me beat by two years, but I've been answering those question for quite sometime as well. The looks I get when I tell them I'm still waiting are tough to take. They always look at me like I ran over a puppy and then trying to explain why I'm still waiting never comes out right either.

                • Im with you on that. Im already looking at the calendar and doing the what ifs. Strategising our move. One thing is for sure - I'll be ready when it comes. Good luck guys. Hopefully it's sooner then later.

                  • I applied back in March of 2012, Got a 87 test score, and put in for southeast region. I'm now wanting to change to the FL region. Would that speed up the process. I have already been to FLETC with another agency so I'm hoping that with my 5 plus year background in Federal LE it would help.

                    • It won't help k9james. I have 6 years as a federal law enforcement officer and it did nothing to help or hinder the process other than maybe getting gs7 or the vbt/si but those parts of the process are easy. The big hurdle is your background obviously. Our background with our current agencies have no bearing. On the plus side I would recommended that you save your leave up so you can have a few weeks to transition. Also we do not get admin leave when it's a transfer to another agency. I tried when I got the first call. Changing your port could help or hurt you. As everyone says - pick the region you want. You will be there for a bit.

                          Did you get notification that you failed? If you did are you sure it's not a NOPA?

                          • I want to know about Tuition Reimbursement. Does CBP offer that? If so, what places on the SW Border do people aim for if they're interested in that possibility?

                            I'm a 22 year-old applicant... all I have left to do is send in my transcript once I graduate in a couple of weeks...
