      Might be stupid question, but coming from a military background so yeah.

      Yeah, you can have a beard while at the academy as long as it meets OFO grooming standards.

  • So my extensive timeline is below. I know its a lot of info, bit I know that we all dig as much as possible for info. I was offered every state that touches Canada (except NH), Massachusetts, NY, VA the SW Border, Florida, Guam, and USVI. Able to ask about cities in each.

      N.N. I really hope it’s a good sign I’ve never done anything wrong in my life. I do have family member with lengthy criminal histories so I hope that doesn’t affect me. I’m taking it in Miami. Annocement 18-3

      I took my poly at that same exact time and day. It went smoothly for me and I know I’ve made some mistakes in my past. If your claiming you never done anything wrong in your life, you should be fine. Good luck, I hope it works out for you

      Actually I had mine 1230. The usually take lunch around 12. So maybe that’s why. Don’t sweat it. Just be honest and follow instructions carefully. You’ll be fine.

        AlexTejada23 Awesome! I haven't even looked at extended stays yet. Im wondering if we'll even be there the full two weeks? I keep seeing people going to Dulles with different EOD dates, but still going to be in the Academy at the same time! I'm happy I met another female going to be at FLETC and the same port as me!! Look forward to meeting you!!

    • Has anyone had any calls from CBP that were from an 850 area code? I know that’s Tallahassee. I’ve now convinced myself that I just missed a call from them and now I’ve missed my chance. Haha. The Number doesn’t ring when I call it back and the voicemail had no sound.

    • For anyone waiting for medical, I basically begged them for an actual response vs a generic email... and I got one. Apparently my file was reviewed by a nurse and then sent to a specialist or two for further review (I only had three issues they requested additional documentation on) and is now back in line to be reviewed by a nurse. So I'm assuming this is why A) things have taken so long and B) other people who have turned in additional paperwork before me, have cleared. It's just a comfort to know what's actually going on and knowing my paperwork is still being reviewed.

          FWIW, a lot of the earlier posts on this thread are either less relevant or very much obsolete in today's OFO.

          The ports in CT are few and none are all that big.

          I live here in CT, like you said Bradley and I believe the New Haven Port has CBP but both don’t have a big amount of people. JFK and Logan are the closest big spots

      • Looks like all the new cbpo job listing not going in detail no more on exact locations besides the major places that hurting for ppl, just with the negotiable now

            Congradulations man!! That’s awesome! Was it a good experience overall? How long did it end up being? It’s encouraging to hear less and less of the poly “horror stories” people were seeing a year or two ago

        • Wanted to share. I just recently received notification that i passed my medical. See Timeline below. So for those with experience, what is the next step? Is it Polygraph? Or does the background clear first. And generally how much time is in between the medical clearance and the next step? I know i have read this particular question and answer in previous posts, but this thread is getting too large to search. LOL

            gaston Looks like your next big step is "wait for poly" like many of us. Timeline for the wait is different for everyone, anywhere from couple days to months... You are 18-3, so I would think your poly schedule is coming soon. But again, its different for everyone. Poly has to be done first before background turns green on Cass because Poly is part of Background. Good luck
