      Not sure when, I'd start calling at 8am. I'd sleep with my phone, who am I kidding me sleep after that? Haha ya that wouldn't happen. Hope they call you again first thing in the morning and congrats TripleD!

        • So being very pessimistic with this whole process I'm going to take what IA told me this morning with a HUGE grain of salt. IA calls me back after requesting an update and says to me that my file should be resolved by this week or next. Now I want to believe this to be the truth, but I just have a hard time doing so. I've waited so long, I hope I'm wrong and it clears by next week, but I'll believe it when I see it.

            Any suggestions would be great.
            What ports were you offered in Texas?

              I learned yesterday that my academy date has been changed to Jan 7th to May 13th as well, so we will be in the same class! See you then!

                Hey guys, Congratulations!!

                I've been in San Diego/San Ysidro for more than one month. I like the city and weather the most, its really nice. I'd suggest you to start looking for a long term place, (month to month) is actually cheaper than a hotel. If you want, you could send me a pm and I'll send you guys some good housing information or any question you may have.

                If you like to work, and like the city life, you may want to pick San Ysidro.. Im from NYC, and I chose this location because SD is minutes away..

                • Hello - I am new here and have a question. I am a current federal employee working for the TSA as a Behavioral Detection Officer since 2007. I have a current Secret Clearance granted March of 2011. Does CBP honor a secret clearance granted by other DHS components? Can I expect an expidited background investigation process and will I be taking a polygraph? Thanks for the help

                  • Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your secret clearance will not expedite your BI and you will have to take a poly. Doesn't matter what clearances you already have or if you are already in law enforcement. Just about anything can slow down your BI process.

                        • Hey guys I have a quick question. My current preference is West Coast. During the application process I said I was not fluent in any languages. I'd like to change my preference to SWB. Is the best time to do that now? (I just uploaded my stuff to USA Test Manager) and if so who do I contact? Also, what are the chances that if I do get switched to SWB that I get San Ysidro? I don't know spanish but I'd be willing to learn. I have a place 15 minutes out from the port so it would be most ideal. Thanks always for great advice!

                              So what is involved in Pre-Academy? I am curious what goes on. Thanks.

                              Also, back in September I threw my back out, took 10 days and some chiropractic care and recovered fully. Now I am waiting for my doctor to fill out some medical paperwork saying I am fit to take my PF2 and then I would be able to take the second physical. I am slated for Pre-Academy for December 16...!

                                Your guess is as good as mine. I have asked before but to my knowledge no one answered.

                                Good luck on your Med clearing and your PFT2!
