      I hear about people failing it all the time and it ojust boggles my mind. As someone who is 6'7 and 270 lbs I passed it pretty easily last year when I took it and it wasn't much of an issue. Just run everyday and do squats + kettlebell swings and you should be fine when you get to the test.
      I wasn't in good shape. However, I've been working out for a little over a month. I do cardio daily.

        So in the contract it states that a response is to be given within a time frame.. what happens when that time-frame is up? Is there any thing we can do on our side, or is it just the way it is?

        Contact the union and see if they're willing to go to bat for you and file a grievance over management's violation of the CBA.

            Do you have a compelling reason to move quickly?

            If not, I'd wait until EOD and ask around the port for suggestions and advice. No sense in rushing if you have no need for it.

                    9 times out of 10, if you're meeting with your BI after the poly, you passed. I never received any results after mine, knew I was moving forward because the investigator called. However, YMMV. Take each piece of advice knowing that almost everyone has a different timeline/process.

                    • How is FLETC? And do you get option if you want to drive or fly to FLECT from San Ysidro.

                        We are currently in Alaska and My wife she doesn't like ALaska very much so she want to move to California. That why I want to rent a place and have her settle down in CA while I go to FLETC.

                          FLETC is easy.

                          You will get paid what ever is cheaper, then you can decide what you want to do. So if its $500 to fly, and $800 to drive...you will still only get the $500. (At least that's how it was at some ports)

                            It's close to 2500 miles between SYS and Brunswick.
                            You might not have the time between your last shift at pre-academy and the start of the academy to drive that sort of distance.

                            They'll give you a travel day to fly out of California and to Georgia. I can't see them giving any more than that...at least not easily.

                              Maybe a short term rental might be an option.

                              Settle the wife down in a location somewhere she'll be happy for the next year and once you're back from the academy and a bit more settled in the job you and her can look for more permanent housing arrangements.

                              • So I applied to Highgate Springs, Vermont for my port and it seems like everyone has a different process but all I have done is completed my e-qip for background investigation.

                                Is Highgate Springs a small port and my process going to be slow and if anyone works there what is it like to be a CBPO there? Work hours, living around the area, etc.

                                I see there is a new opening for Massena, NY if I re-apply there would my chances go up of getting hired quicker or is there another port and can re-apply to and then request a transfer back to NY area in 2 years?
