    Yep, same here. Just need to take the PFT-2, which comes after "the call", of course. Can't wait to go though!



    Might be some correlation with our process since we both have been waiting for SU since June and are going to the same port location.
    Congrats "Future CBPO" and "ConanPhipsi176".

    I am a 13-1 applicant, originally applied for Florida, then later changed to Central East Coast. On June, I was offered the same locations as you guys. I was struggling to pick between Baltimore and Dulles, but I selected Baltimore and was asigned for it. So I've been waiting "the call" the same as you guys. I think Dulles and Baltimore are going to be pretty much referring at the same rate. Hopefully we hear some good news on Oct!

    Hope we get to meet at the Academy!

      Is it more beneficial to pick a larger port than a smaller one. Would like to maximize my changes of getting the call.

          Hey, louisdiver! Man, I really think we are on to something or some form of pattern. We shall see soon. Sounds like we are lining up and got referred to SU around the same period as though they are structuring a class group for the fall. You should have chosen Dulles, but hopefully we all end up at the academy together! Hahaha. Yea, just a few more days, but probably Monday before anything should be expected. We shall see though!

            Lets see man. Hopefully the government doesn't shutdown for this new FY. I have a friend at Artesia, NM at the Border Patrol Academy, he told me they are afraid of a government shutdown because in case that happens, they are going to be sent home until the budget settles down.

            Lets cross our fingers!

            • I think Seattle is like those areas like Miami where it takes a while to get into (waiting for an open funded position), I haven't really seen anyone heading up that way. Out of all the options I had to choose from I really am looking forward to leaving as I have been working on running and push ups, not to mention I absolutly hate my job!!! Lol To those who have gotten the call good luck from here on out. I guess good things come to those who wait so I am waiting...Anyone headed to those rural locations like in North Dakota?

              • Hello everyone,

                Just wanted to throw a question for everybody that is waiting EOD Date (the call).

                According to CBP website:

                What happens after I have successfully completed the pre-employment screening process? Will I immediately be scheduled for entry on duty (EOD)?

                A. Upon clearance, your name will be added to an existing pipeline of cleared CBP Officers who are available to fill vacancies as they arise at locations all around the country. Whether you are immediately contacted about an available vacancy depends on the location you chose, the number of people in the pipeline at that location, and the number of vacancies or new positions available at the location. When your name is reached for an available vacancy at a location you chose, the Training and PFT2 Scheduling Team of the Minneapolis Hiring Center will contact you.
                Have somebody tried to call the Scheduling Unit to ask the number of people in the pipeline for their location? I think that is a fair question that probably would answer an "estimated" waiting time. For example, lets assume that there are 50 applicants in the JFK pipeline. Then assuming that there would be 15 candidates reffered over the next month would give us an idea of "some sort of pattern" just as Conan said.

                I don't know, I am just throwing this up because I think I would be worth to give MHC Scheduling Unit a call. We can't loose anything.

                  Knock on wood, bro! Haha. No bad juju haha. However, I know what you mean. I think we are gonna be squared aWay with that situation though or else I feel like the media would be blowing that crap up right now like usual considering the fiscal year is right around the corner, you know? I hope all goes well though.

                  Fingers crossed since Nov 2013, haha. Been working this far for the both of us and future CBPO.

                    I thought exactly the same. If there were going to be a shutdown the media would've been all hype about it, and for now, I haven't heard major setbacks on that.

                    I know man, this process has been so long and tedious, I took the polygraph 3 times!! That is all I have to say. LOL

                      I tried calling MHC last week and have called previously. All responses I have received have been "I don't know" and that she only calls you when you are chosen. She told me a specialist can see the wait lists but she thought it would be a hard process to get the list pulled, the specialist might not do it, the specialist wasn't there, and she didn't know when the specialist would be there. I think it was mostly, "stop bugging me, I'll call you when your port has an open funded position." Couldn't even get an answer as to if she thought hiring would increase with the fiscal year. I think port officials would have better ideas than MHC. I almost was going to call the Dulles port, but they have no reason to give me information-I could be a nobody.

                        • I'm a 15-1 selected EWR due to the opporrunity of working both the air side and port side.
                          No idea how great of a decision that was.

                          • I'm 13-1 got NE by mistake,!deferred and reapplied to Newark on 15-2 and have been referred to the SU since 07/30. Fiscal year starts Oct.1 and it seems like there is not going to be a shutdown

                            Stay in shape!!

                              Mine wasn't a switch in locations. When I applied it was for the entire Central East Coast, not specific ports like announcements have been lately. Sorry, I can't help you with a setback time frame if you decide to switch.

                              • I reapplied last week to the latest announcement. So I was told I can go to the academy with Boston and come out going to JFK. I have no idea what this does to my timeline. I applied to the NE by accident as well.
