    well try to stay positive, you never know what the Gods have in store for you. How bad is your vision? I never understood this since i have good eyesight, but cant someone just wear glasses? I also re-applied in july and have completed all steps except for my BI. I met with her and they interviewed my references and all that, so now i'll just sit back and wait.

    • I got an interesting letter from Comprehensive Health Services yesterday. It states, "On the basis of your recent examination, we would like to bring the following results to your attention. Please review the items indicated below with your personal physician."

      Blood Pressure: 136/82

      Note: Unless specifically requested by CHS, please do NOT submit any additional medical information regarding any abnormal result listed below.


      Is this just a heads up to keep an eye on my blood pressure? Am I within the standards?

        You should consult your medical physician. I am not a doctor and you shouldn't take this advice with a lot of weight to it.


        Depending on if your family has a history of high BP, you workout habits and/or other factors, that's slightly high. Could have been you being a wee bit nervous, could have been hot in the room, could have been a bad read, could have been anything. Still, a tad bit high.

        "And you are kinda intoxicated."

          That way instead of ending up as a GL-09/02 five years down the road, you're a GL-09/08-09 and if you decide to jump into an 12 job you'll move in as a 12, instead of a 9 or an 11.

          Thanks.... I have decided to do pretty much exactly that... After asking probably about 100 questions to IEA's and even a couple of my instructors at FLETC, they said the same thing. Plus, it doesnt hurt to eat up as much OT as possible and bank some money before moving on. But thanks for the advice.
          Day one at CBP: Aug 4th, 2008

          Its game on from here....

              Hey, can you please tell me what the letter says? Do you just have to go see an optometrist and have them fill out the forms and do you have to wait 3 more months? Thanks.

                Da nada.

                More than a handful of CBPO's move to the IEA position, mostly for the 12D coverage, and the scheduling(if having weekends off means alot to you).
                Many actually come out making more money with ICE. Of ocurse, that means working 50-60+ hour weeks as an IEA to make what a CBPO makes working 45-50 hours a week at his port. Whatever makes you happy though.

                • Solid snake it just states that an optometrist or ophthalmologist has to complete the form and you mail them back nothing about 90 day wait. But i didn't have prk like you though. I knew i could at least hit 20/100 by concentrating hard i mean there's no time limit on an eye test and I currently don't have $3k or so for the lasik i'm just glad i passed

                  • You have to wait 90 days after the surgery.

                        Thanks. Any idea if my BP rating is in regulation? Will I be hearing further from medical?

                          I can't find my PEPR packet at the moment, but if memory serves me right the limit is 140/90. You should be fine.

                            I got the same letter. The letter is not from the Medical Unit. It's from your testing facility. They are just doing their duty in letting you know that you should pay attention to you BP. You are within the acceptable range for CBP. It is my understanding that 140/90 and above is dissqualifying.

                              If you work for CBP, you know IA's phone number.

                              Best to send them an email if I were you, working for CBP. That's what I did.

                              Hint: On the Intranet, hit the IA tab, and read their front page. It says you can email them. Good luck (and yes, you'll see after the email something wonderful happens...you're file is found).

                              Disclosure: Recommend you get SCO approval first to not jump the change-of-command, that's what I did.
