      How long have you been in TSU? and what ports did they offer you besides the one in Derby? I'm asking because i also have been selected for the Northeast Region and wanted to know which ones have positions available

          P.S make sure you practice proper form push ups - back straight, legs together. Elbow needs to fully extend to count. A couple of guys were 1 or two push ups away from failing because they did some improper push ups that didnt count.

          Also, when doing sit ups make sure that your shoulders touch the mat and when you come up make sure that your elbows pass your knees. Your hands need to be behind your head but not interlocked with your fingers. Instructors will demonstrate but it's good to know beforehand anyway. Overall it's a pretty easy process.

          For those who might be interested in my times, they were 220 yd dash at 30 secs and 1.5 mile run at 10:48
          Congrats Pointman! After having the offer and then it being withdrawn completing this last step had to feel great! Hopefully soon my BI will clear and I can feel as good as you do now haha.

            No, there is no Psych Test. I believe you are the same person I previously advised to read the signatures of some of the members posting...especially the ones who recently received their calls. There is no Psych Test for CBP listed in their signature!

            There is a polygraph exam and most will argue it is psychologically stressfull, but that's about it. All of the steps involvled in the CBPO applicant process can be found on CBP's website in great detail.

              I was never even put into TSU believe it or not. I took my drug test on a Friday and kept checking my CASS system. The next Friday they called me and made me an offer without my CASS even changing. I was offered Norton, Derby, and Beecher Falls. I took the written in Feb of 2011. Got a tentative offer in early December. Jumped through all the hoops and got an offer early late June.

                From what I've noticed with a lot of people who have been getting hired it seems like pre-academy is anywhere between 3-6 weeks. Mine is 5 weeks

                          That's Awesome! Good luck in Fletch Bud. Maybe I'll get to join you someday in Derby.

                          • Got the CALL.... again

                            I noticed some people got called for San Ysidro this week, and I when I was called last week, it was not available. I emailed TSU asking about it and I received a phone call right away. I had to come off of my deferrment (without knowing which locations were available). I took the gamble and it paid off... San Ysidro was on the list. I accepted this time. What a difference a week makes. It would have been upsetting if I had to decline a final time, but since I knew a new hiring announcement was coming later this month, I figured I'd give it a shot.

                            • I took my polygraph 5 weeks ago and haven't heard anything.
                              Is there a number I can call to find out my status?
                              Should I start getting concern? Thanks.
