    You are good. As you reapply, your score will roll over. I believe they will even ask you if you want to use your old score or retest. If you already have a TSL, you don't even need to worry about your score expiring. Your PFT/Med can expire but your test score won't as long as you are an active applicant.

    • Took my first PT test & medical test and I must say that damn step test wore me OUT! I'm happy its over. I believe I passed... Well I met all my marks so I believe I'm good. Next step is VBT/SI June 23rd. I must say 15-1 is progressing quicker than a lot of others TL but you guys def have me worried it seems like every other day someone is getting bad news. Its like you almost have to be perfect to get it! Geesh! Well that's my rant for today lol

        I know if I want to change locations I would have to take the test over again.

        Albany, NY?

        Good luck with that. It's a small port with limited turnover and whatever openings that do occur stand a good chance of being filled by Champlain personnel.

        Think of Champlain, Alex Bay and maybe Massena as the most likely offerings.

          I know several officers at Albany, and several more trying to get back. I gave a friend who's been waiting 6 years so far.

          • I've seen a lot of posts from the 15-1 group so I thought I'd give my experience so far. I just completed the medical and fitness 1 test yesterday and this morning I received an email for my VBT for June 25th. It does seem like things are moving faster then what I've read in the past, maybe it has to do with the central East coast location. The only issue I had in the medical was they said my left ear scored poorly in the audio test, though not so bad it would disqualify me, but during the entire test I was able to hear outside noises of the nurse opening and closing doors and speaking with other patients. The place I did the exam was pretty shabby and a little unprofessional, but the fitness test was easy and went well. Also, does anybody know how much input your test score has on the hiring process? Or is it pretty much just pass or fail it to see if you can read and do basic math?

              • Well everyone looks like I am another victim of the voodoo machine just got done with my 5 hour long poly! The test is complete bS the examiner kept getting mad at me for moving then breathing to deep then breathing to quick yada yada I was told I was inconclusive due to me having a few reactions to serious crimes and drug usage but I passed the part about if everything on my application was truthful. He said he tried everything to pass me but I couldn't give him anything any reasons to why I was reacting. Needless to say I'll wait to hear from MHC. Sucks they have to lose so many potentially good applicants due to failed polys

                    It was in Miami, Fl. I got pretty lucky, all of my pre employment requirement locations have been close by

                      If it's inconclusive , you didn't fail. Hopefully you get another try being that you didn't fail. Did he tell you that you failed?

                        Sorry to hear that, a female I work with just told me of her horror story of a 6 hour polygraph she had. I almost couldn't believe what she told me about it, but after 6 hours of badgering the examiner finally failed her. Seems like the majority of whether you pass or fail is decided on the examiner and whether or not you fit the bill of what they're looking to hire that week. Good luck

                          He said I was inconclusive and MHC would probably retest with a different examiner. he even went on to say he doesn't believe it was anything that would effect my ability to work for CBP but I have to be able to get through those questions without a reaction. I couldn't belive my poly started at 330pm and ended at 830pm! Here's to hoping the next go around goes smoother

                          • Just wondering if anyone else has applied for the Northwest Border, are currently there, or knows anyone who's in that region. I've lived in Washington state but I wanted to know about the other states in that region and if the cbp officers liked those ports. Based on this thread it seems like a lot of people selected more jobs located in the East coast.

                                We won't name names but it sounds like you had the same guy that I did on my first polygraph...i.e. acting absolutely ridiculous, hooting and hollering about breathing, did he yell at you for swallowing at all or slight twitches of limbs you had no control over?!
