                        1) I'm sorry. It sucks.
                        2) Did you study the practice guide from the website?
                        3) Now you should know what type of questions yo have trouble with. The study guide had a Bib. at the end. Use that to find extra material in your area(s) of weakness, and look for material on your own.
                        4) Be careful when you retake. Double check me on this, but I have a friend who failed last year. He just retook, and if I understand correctly, they disqualified him for not waiting a year between tests. So, they let him retest but DQ'ed him, so now he has to wait another full year again (and he's bumping up against 37).
                        Either way, best of luck.

                          Thanks! Yeah I remember us struggling through the medical wait period. Still don't have a check mark in CASS though...

                          I submitted my eqip and prints on September 29. I think I got the case in the security office line a month later. I think that falls into the 8 week average most ppl wait in between submitting and getting poly info.

                          • How long to hear back from medical review officer after submitting additional information? This annoying as they told me 6-8 weeks. I did my medical back in 7/21, took them 3 months to tell me to send them additional information. Now I have to wait 6-8 weeks, hr told I wont be able to start my background and drug test until my medical has cleared. It seems like this process is really retarded, because the doctors are contracted. Then after submitting the additional information they have to pay another doctor to do the review, now this is where you hope that send your addition information to the same medical review officer and not different doctor in another state.

                            • I'm in the 14-2. Got my NOR on 31 Oct 14 with a score of 93 for the Florida region. Does anyone know that the cut off score for the Florida region is? Also, what's going to happen next and what is the usual timeframe? I just want a better understanding of what to expect and the timeframe for each milestone after passing the written exam.

                              I can tell you that I did study the free aid materials provided in the CBP website for the test 5-6 days ahead. During my studying I felt pretty good. While taking the test I struggled a bit with time and math as it's not my forte'. Immediately, after testing I felt like I should've studied much more and that I had failed anyways. Then, the long awaited NOR...took loooonger than expected.

                              On a side note, I have a friend whom took the test 2 yrs ago scoring 86. He waited a long time and recently got hired and went through the Academy in May 14. He will be in JFK. With that said, I don't expect anything from this position I've applied for in less than at least a year.

                              Currently, I'm a SSG in the U.S. Army on active duty orders with an active Sec Clearance. Deployed a bunch of times and have experience with US Customs through collaborative work. No medical issues and great at PT. My friend was also Army and told me that the PT is a breeze compared to our regimen.

                              Any comments in reference to Florida, are most welcomed.
