    That's unfortunate. On the CBP website it says you can change your GEO with Border Patrol up until your final offer (unless that is outdated information). However, in that they are two separate agencies, that would explain why they may or may not have separate requirements.
    We have separate unions and I know with the Patrol, we get offered a station within your GEO choice. If you want it then you get hired, if you turn it down, you start the hiring process all over again. I believe CBP allows job swapping, basically if someone in your academy class is hired for NJ and they want to work in NY and you got hired for NY but would rather work in NJ, then you can swap and you pay your own moving expense's ect.

        Very good info. Thanks. Is there some type of port swap bulletin board set up at FLETC?

          I'm still waiting on BI email. Although I was just informed by MHC that I will not receive that until after my med-review clears. JOSH, you will be interested to know that!

            Oh, wow. This is interesting. Is there like a meeting between classmates, or do you just randomly ask everyone if they want to switch?

              I had emailed them last week and they told me the same thing when they responded. Now I spend my days checking to see if my medical is checked off. Still not yet. The wait continues.

                  I met with my BI on 6/27 and I believe they are going to submit my background info to the HQ by the end of this week. It's a waiting game from now on.

                      That's what I thought last month too, until my BI contacted me 2 weeks later and told me that my BI was complete last week (took almost a month to complete) now I am waiting.

                        • To Josh and all those in the waiting period, i say you are not alone. Like I said before, there is always a point in this process when somebody has to do some form of rather agonising waiting.
                          Iam done with the VBT, submitted eqip and related forms. Then I had to submit the required documents for them to initiate the verification of my selective service status. 6 weeks has passed already so i wrote them yesterday to findout if there is any latest development and here is what i got:

                          "[I[/I]Your selective service verification package is complete and is in the next package to be sent to HQ for review and submission to HROPP. This process can take a minimum of six months or longer once it has been submitted before the Minneapolis Hiring Center will hear anything.

                          We do appreciate your patience and will let you know if any additional information or action is needed".


                          This got me thinking, what would i have done if had no job while waiting for this process to end? All in all, i believe there will be light at the end of the tunnel for all those waiting. This waiting might be a blessing in disguise. Lets keep the fire burning and all shall be well sooner than expected.

                          • It is done through your account settings however, the entire forum did an update for me today and I do not know how to navigate things currently.

                              Yeah, there's an update on the website and it's kind of annoying at the beginning. For the account settings, go to the upper right where it says "menu" and click on "privacy policy" and scroll down, you will see your name and edit account.
                              For private messages, there's a little square on the top right of the page right by the "search" icon, click on it and it will show you messages.

                                This is the best advice you could ever give. We often forget our blessing and that we are actually close to getting the job and are in better situations than those who didn't get it for some reason or another. The best way for me now is keep training everyday. No excuses. By the time I get the call I will be ready and won't struggle. I will keep it up and thanks for the encouraging words
