    For what it's worth sounds like you will be perfectly fine....
    Also pay attention to the bottom part. Think they are doing away with the side step test and replacing with 1.5 mile run.

      Cool thanks for that. They seem realtively simple. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and not get injured.

      I know the process takes a while so I'll keep at it througout everything. Hope I'll make it all the way. Best of luck to everyone at the end and those who just passed the written exam.

        I did not ask him whether he was with the secret service or not. We talked about our service overseas and when I asked him if he was with the military he said no, so I stopped there. I know he came from Tucson, AZ and stayed here for a week where he conducted poly to 3 or 4 of us in the state.

          When mine called to schedule me, he identified himself as USSS and asked me if I minded he conduct my poly? Maybe they are required to do so?

              • Hello,
                ive been reading the forums and I never posted because my questions would get answered by me reading through others experience. I took pft1/medical back in 3/24/14 and I blew through the physical but I think I somehow got put under medical review because I have an innocent heart murmur. it is now July and medical states "Your medical has been sent to our Medical Review Office for a determination. We normally receive a determination approximately four weeks after your exam date." on CASS and I haven't gotten anything back except vbt/si and an email subject "bi-box" telling me what to expect on the polygraph exam. its been more than four weeks for my medical to clear up and I sent an email about a month ago on this issue and I got a response that I must wait for medical to get checked in order for me to proceed with BI paper work... I feel like my application is just sitting in someone desk collecting dust at this point.

                also does someone have the medical review email address. applicant newsletter is not appearing on my cpu.

                • To the former military guys on here that are either in the process or already hired. Do any of you remember when or where in the process you submit the form to the VA for On the Job Training Pay? And whom did you have to submit it to? It's been a while since I did it for the BP Academy and can't really recall how the process went. Thanks in advance.....

                    I don't know. Maybe you have a military background, maybe you were born overseas, it could be a reason, it could be not.

                    Does anybody know what does the adjudication process entails?

                    • Do you guys realize what you are joining? CBP is nothing but a greeter agency. It's not LE; it's all about greeting a traveler.

                        Yes. I know what it is.

                          That depends on how you look at the law I suppose. No, we're not busting down doors and slapping on cuffs all day long and I agree this agency has gotten worse over the years. But at the end of the day it's easy work with decent pay and we still get LE retirement. I would hope that most guys on here know what kind of work they are getting them selves in to.

                          • Depending on how one views it, there are but a few federal agencies that do "LE" work on a regular basis.
                            US Park Police and Bureau of Indian Affairs Police are likely the closest to "LE" of all federal agencies. Outside if that, the pickings get slim.

                            Yeah, we are, in part, a "greeter agency". The fact is, especially for many of us, that the vast majority of traffic we'll see(98+%) will be legitimate travelers engaging in lawful activities. The trick is to learn to seperate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, if "LE" work is all that important to you. Otherwise, you can always focus on facilitating the movement of legitimate trade and travel, which is equally as important and as serving to the agency/public interest as our "LE" mission.

                              LEO, greeter, whatever; if they pay me GS-12 after four years, I'm not gonna get too demanding.

                                I know right? Better working at retail. The nature of the job is very obvious especially in the VBT/SI interview.
