    The polygraph is a matter of law...the Anti Border Corruption Act of 2010. Getting rid of the poly would take an act of Congress and the President.

    The VBT came about originally as a replacement for structured interviews. Later, structured interviews were reintroduced, leaving the VBT as more or less redundant within the process.
    I wasnt aware that the poly test was mandated by law. Thats interesting. I will definitely read up on that. Thank you.

      It will require a Congressional amendment to do away with the poly. However, now a bunch of folks have great Mon-Fri jobs giving the polys and will surely protest any change.
      IMHO the poly is killing hiring efforts and not very effective at judging character.
      Thank you

            Based on the delphi forum traffic, calls are being made to miami applicants. Why would they lower the grade anyway?

            • Maybe someone can help me out wit this. I got my NOR a while ago, that I passed the test. I haven't heard anything in a while as to the next step of the process. not sure if it is VBT or PFT-1. Could it have something to do with the duty location I have chosen?

                You can only reaply as a 5/7. I'm higher than that. So I need to drop.

                  Harper ferry is pretty cool.you run on a paved track around a pond which by the way is not a level track. The track has a few uphills and down hill with a small bridge on it. The 1.5 miles will be 3 laps around the track in less than 17:15 mins. They have a big courtside clock on the finish line for you to track your time.. You first start with the 220..then the situps, push ups then followed by the 1.5 miles. You can bring your bottle water and towel with you. No head gear, ipod, mp3 etc will be allowed. i do advise to get there early since you have to be escorted as a group in a van from the main building into the facility by a CBP instructor.
                  I can suggest you arrive the evening before and get a good rest as oppose to arriving the morning of with a long distance driving fatigue
                  And have to deal with the pft2...What i did was i drove from NYC the evening before and stayed in a Motel 6 which was exatcly a 3 mile drive for like 45 bucks. I arrived early the evening before checked in, ate a good dinner relaxed and got a good night sleep and went and rocked the pft 2 with a breeze..

                  P.s if you have a NYS drivers license, they will not let you into the facility, so make sure you bring a passport or some other form of govt ID.

                      I wonder why they have an issue granting access to people with NYS drivers license. I have read and understood the real ID act and know that NYS wasnt compliant, however NYS was granted an extension. I copied the following from the NYS DMV website:

                      New York State has been granted an extension to the REAL ID Act only through October 10, 2016. What does that mean?

                      The extension’s 2016 expiration is no cause for concern, as DHS grants extensions only on an annual basis and New York State anticipates having a REAL ID extension until becoming fully compliant with the Act. That means New Yorkers can continue to use their current state-issued driver license or ID card to enter federal buildings or board a domestic flight until October 1, 2020

                      • Hello! 16-10 applicant here, I was wondering if anyone else was a 16-10 applicant?

                        • For those who have reapplied, how long does it take for everything to transfer over? I withdrew last month and am waiting for the new postings so I can reapply. I am hoping that it will move quickly. Does it pick up where it left off? I had passed everything initially, and was pretty far into the process. Also, has anyone had success moving forward after reapplying?

                              I really didn't ask. I got a passport so it really didn't matter to me.

                                How long did it take to receive your passport? Do you know if anyone has used the passport card instead of the passport book for real id purposes?
