        I was told anyways that where I take the test is where the test will be graded...it will never even reach the port I put in for...so whats it matter anyways...
        Why...the potential for the idea that you're wearing your uniform to unduly positively influence the outcome. As I understand it, you're going to be on MSU's time, not CBP time. If you're not on CBP's clock, you probably shouldn't be in uniform. If you shouldn't be wearing the uniform, you really think that the likelihood of that being perceived in a positive light is great? I'm not saying that it'll necessarily kill you off, but why take a chance?

        As far as it never making it's way back to your new port...I don't know. CBP is a very small family in many ways. I've done things in Boston that have followed me back to ND. The idea that something might follow you isn't all that far-fetched, IMO.

          With OPM eliminating the former time in grade requirements, it's now possible for someone to be fast tracked to an 11 in months.

          Likely to happen, probably not. Possible though.

              Most of them probably have the potential.

              I'm unware of any 'list' of GL jobs. The GL scale only goes to GL-10, so many of the "better" jobs end up being GS-scale anyways.

                • Hey guys is this normal for the BI?

                  So I just met my BI last week and during that time he asked for 3 more references, including a person that knows me fore around 7 years. With that, brings up to 5 people that knows me for more than 7 years that I gave him as a reference. Now, I don't really keep in touch with that many people for more than 7 years and I am only 22 years old. Today he asks for another person that knows me for 7 years and 2 more people that knows me for the past year or so. So far I have given him around 13 references and many of them are after he interviewed me and I thought he was suppose to interview everyone before he interviews me because it will give me a chance to explain any negative things said about me. So how am I suppose to explain any negative things said about me if he had already interviewed me before he interviews my references?

                  Also, how am I suppose to come up with another person that knows me for more than 7 years if I have lost contact with many of my old friends ever since I went to college? Do you think it would be fine if I can't come up with another 7 year+ reference?

                      The adjudicator will give you that opportunity, either through a phone call or a NOPA. What really should be happening is that your references shouldn't be giving your BI any surprises because he already knows what to expect.

                      Also, how am I suppose to come up with another person that knows me for more than 7 years if I have lost contact with many of my old friends ever since I went to college? Do you think it would be fine if I can't come up with another 7 year+ reference?
                      I was in the same exact situation as you, and I think during my interview I just straight up told him "I only know so many people that I've kept up with for a long time." He understood and told me to find people who at least know me the best. I have a small group of friends that I have kept in contact since the beginning of highschool and consistently saw through out college. That being said, due to some being unavailable, I was able to provide him with people that didn't know me for a long long time, but at least knew me well enough to be used as a reference.

                      IIRC, SF-86 only asks you for two or three names for people that know you 'really well' and beyond that, my BI didn't really push the whole "every reference must know you for a long long time" because as soon as I told him that would prove to be difficult, he said "no biggie."
                      "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                      "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                                Didn't you ask for his opinion? So you just wanted him to reaffirm your own beliefs? I don't get it.
