  • Well, I got "the call" a couple of hours ago y'all I was offered the following POEs:

    San Luis, AZ
    Calexico, CA

    Brownsville, TX
    Del Rio, TX
    Presidio, TX
    Eagle Pass, TX
    Hidalgo, TX
    Laredo, TX
    Roma, TX
    Rio Grande City, TX

    I accepted the offer; I chose to scoot on down from Dallas and accept Brownsville, TX. I EOD September 16th (pending PFT 2 of course). I believe I misheard the guy on the phone regarding FLETC lol... he either said Oct. 3rd or Oct. 30th. I'll call tomorrow and find out.

      • Any senior officers monitoring this forum know if they will continue to schedule academies through Nov and Dec? I have heard mixed things, some say they will stop after Oct and pick back up in Jan-Feb. each year. Is there some truth to this?

        Glad you got the call IrvingAg13, your Aug 2012 TSL means some of us are getting close!

          • Blue Sky thanks for the insight I was definitely taking the nationwide hiring for granted but not anymore lol Unfortunately, I have to work my *** off to get great grades on tests but if I set time aside for it, I can do it. So, if I get chosen for another region I can't change it right? I can only change the region from the one I've chosen to whatever... Correct?


            Congrats IrvingAg13 .. Please come back once in a while to enlighten the rest of us with your information, this time from the inside

                Hi guys, i have a quick question. I applied to this position (still haven't taken the test or received a test date) and when i applied, i applied under the 3 year general experience requirement as opposed to a college degree or specialized experience.

                Only problem is, i don't have 3 years of general experience, i have about 2 years at this point. I still applied though because i figured that by the time i get called i'll have the 3 year general experience requirement. Is this logical thinking or was i supposed to have the 3 year gen exp requirement BEFORE taking the test?

                Thanks in advance for your response.

                I'm sorry if this seems like a silly question but i'm just a little confused. Thanks ALOT!

                If you can't come up with 3 years of general experience by the date the announcement you applied under closed, you're probably finished.

                How old are you and how limited are your life/work/general experiences?

                Most people ought to be able to come up with 3 years of "general" experience...especially if you employ some ingenuity, inventiveness and wordsmithery.

                    That's awesome Irving Congratulations!! Looks like they have POEs on the SWB that could use some officers. Just so happens this forum is full of individuals more than willing to fill those positions haha. Mind if I ask what vacancy ID# you applied under?

                        Hey ncls12 you and I have the same TSL date. Considering IrvingAg13 was Aug 12 I went ahead and called TSU to ask if there would be any academies scheduled for Nov or Dec. The man I talked to said that the Oct 30 class was the last one for FY13. As for FY14 there were no classes scheduled yet, and he had no word on any either. Since Sep 12 TSL's should be next to get the call for the SWB it looks like we may not get that call until Jan 14 or later. Unless of course between now and Oct they approve an academy schedule for Nov-Dec.

                        Fingers crossed!

                          I would highly suggest a suit. You'll be sworn in the very first day you start. I'm wearing a suit and waiting for my supervisor to tell me to change, lol. You meet your port director the first day also, you don't want to start off on the wrong foot because you're improperly deressed. You can only get in trouble if you under dress at work, not over dress, lol.

                            Only one of us wore a suit jacket when I went to pre-academy last year...It's not required at all.
