  • I went on the 11th for the VBT/SI in Buffalo and I was not asked to stay for the SI. I honestly thought I did a good job. The Officer told me I did good to just check online weekly for the next step. When I ask about the SI she told me that they were booked for the day and I will get notified by email regarding my next step. Sucks I guess its time to start studying for the July test.

      Hmmm. Were there a lot of other applicants there taking the VBT, too? I dunno. Maybe they were booked, and you'll get the SI later. Hopefully that's the case.

      Also, any tips you can give for the VBT since I know you guys and gals sign an NDA? Are the example scenarios key to passing the VBT?

      • I took the test today... Pretty much bombed the math portion. I don't remember it being that hard when I took it 5 +/- years ago. I'll hope for the best.

              Ditto. I was surprised by the math section as well. From what we cover in my graduate program, adjustments are most likely made any time a public agency starts something new.

              I hope they end up curving the scores to be able to gather 2,000+ qualified applicants out of the 10,000 applicants. If not, then I hope I got a 70+ and my Arabic/GPA/experience looks good enough to carry on in this process.

              Best to all who took the computer written exam, and to those who are well into the process.

                I saw like 3-4 other people. The example scenarios seem like that's what they wanted.

                  Cool, thanks. Did you not apply the example scenarios to the real test?

                  Also, why would you have to retake the test again? I thought the test was good for a year or two.

                    They created a new computer based test this year.

                              Never has anyone representing Spain looked so lost since Christopher Columbus headed for Asia in 1492

                              • Hey guys, I've been lurking around this forum for sometime now; so I figured why not introduce myself. I'm from the NYC area and this is my timeline so far:

                                Geo: North East
                                09/23/13 Took the test
                                10/02/13 NOR
                                12/16/13 TSL
                                01/02/14 medical and fitness test
                                02/03/14 submitted TSL paperwork
                                02/??/14 background investigation initiated
                                03/24/14 resubmitted "missing" TSL paperwork
                                04/10/14 VBT & SI interview
                                06/20/14 Scheduled for polygraph test

                                I would love to hear from others how they're hold through the process, especially from the eastern locations. From what I gather, the process in the western locations seem to be a bit more faster. Any tips for the polygraph test would greatly appreciated as well. Good Luck to us all.
