    • 13-3 applicant here... Just started my application a month ago... Reason being is that I just came back from deployment so my app was on hold. Anyways I've already done my Eqip, medical, pft 1 and I already have my SI/VBT scheduled for the end of this month. I would like to know if anyone from the NYC area has gone through the process recently and where exactly did they go for their poly? Im a little nervous because I just got accepted to corrections in NYC. The academy starts March 5th so it's going to be tough to ask for a day off during the academy to do the poly. Didn't want to turn down corrections because I don't want to stay empty handed. Thanks for your inputs!

          I was having the same problem. Eventually I was connected with a person after about 25 minutes on hold.

            Email or try to contact your case manager. A couple of guys up further in the thread had the same problem they tried early in the morning 8 am eastern time. But first contact you case manager to at least get an extension...

                  I thought you could port swap with other CBPOs at different locations?

                  • I took the PFT2 last Friday (2/6/15). When do I expect CBP to send me the final EOD letter and offer, and where/when to report for EOD on 2/23/15?

                      I've read current CBPO's have reapplied to new openings and some of them have swapped also... As far as new hire's, I know they have 1 year probation... Not sure if they have to commit to their assigned port before they are allowed to re-apply or swap... Best bet is to contact MHC just to inquire. Hope this helps.

                          When I scheduled mine I was calling with both hands, one from my home phone, one from my cell.phone until someone picked up.

                            I got my final selection letter the next day. You have to show up to the port you chose. All of the info you will need is in that final letter.

                            • Wow, good thing I wasn't working today! I got home from taking my 4yo to the dentist and then a movie. My wife had said there was a call from an unavailable number to the home phone (but I never got a call on my cell.). I checked my e-mail at 1445 and I had an e-mail stating I had to call today and schedule my poly before 1530 or my case would be dropped! Luckily the agent picked up and I had no problem scheduling. I'm set for 06March. The 1st date available was the 4th, but I work all night on the 3rd and get off at 0730 that morning. I told her I would suck it up and do it though. She said no, I need a good night sleep first, as it is an all day process, and gave me the 6th. I was hoping to get it in Northern VA (esp. since the two NTS's are out here) but I have to go into DC, for a 0900 appointment, that's rush hour! ,... anyway, I love first world problems. Now if only my Medical would go green :-)

                              • I would def suggest getting as much sleep as possible. I was in similar situation as you and only got 2 hours of sleep the night before a poly. It was not wise lol. Your body is already under enough stress and no sleep will only make your vitals jump
