    • Hey guys got an update for 3-11-2019....
      Passed my polygraph, background, SI, etc.

      Medical came back and said I need to submit a waiver due to corrected vision? Anyone wearing glasses that can't see anything more than a "finger count" without them passed the medical review board? What do you guys think? Should I waiver or not?

        my previous app was 18-11 and i failed my eyes exam because i could not see anything after i take off my glasses. They sent me an email stated that i can waiver it if i am currently work as a law enforcement otherwise i have to re-apply again. so i did lasik right away and re apply again right after i done lasik.

        After my inital medical, I had to go to the my own eye doctor for another eval. Then i received an email saying-"basically you blind, why should we hire you" I then completed the medical waiver and had to write a letter and turn in evals from my current agency.

        If you dont waiver, then you more than likely will not get considered for the position. And they do accept your waiver, i am pretty certain you file goes back to the bottom. lol

        Thank you guys for the advice. Yes I am currently in a civilian law enforcement agency. So CBP is wanting performance evals from my agency along with a written statement on why I should be hired correct?
        And no, I could barely read the biggest letter on the chart without my glasses or contacts lol...Yea my vision is pretty bad.

    • Rerang, just curious to why you picked Boston. I'm from there and moved to Texas. To liberal for my likes.

        Yeah I love Maine. If you hate lots of people then you'll hate Boston. You can't even move there. Maine is beautiful though. I live North of dfw. Closer to Oklahoma. So not a lot of people. My city has 4,000 people surrounded by lakes.

        Hal29 I went to Boston this past summer and while there may be a good amount of people, it just doesn't compare to here. The people issue is just more exhausted when I combine it with the scenery I guess. It's hard to go from living right near Lake Michigan and then being over 8 hours away from the ugly beaches of TX haha. I'm north DFW too, but I just have never been a fan. Then there's the weather of course. My thing has always been it's easier to warm up than cool down. Plus I enjoy ice fishing. Not much of that down here. Thanks for the input tho!

        Lol. Nothing wrong with Crystal beach. But hear it lacks a lot of scenery. My little girl does rodeo and we like to camp and hike a lot in Colorado and Oklahoma. Thus the reason I'm going to Arizona. I left the north because I was sick of the cold....lol. after 22 years of playing hockey I was done. I moved here in 2011. My wife is also from texas.

        Hal29 Yea I had the same thoughts about the cold when I lived there too haha. Not quite missing it this winter tho! Arizona will be solid!

    • I’m 18-3 applicant and I was thinking about reapplying to a new DH announcement for gs 9, does everything just carry over and if both applications will run concurrently together. Just trying to speeds thing up cause I’m still waiting for a poly date after 6 months.

            One, ask your port to schedule you so your weekend falls on the days preceding your academy travel day so you can travel home. Two, ask your port to book you a flight from your home town instead of your port town so you can avoid traveling back to your port.

            Now, maybe they'll accommodate you and maybe not...especially if that flight out of your home town costs more than the one out of your port town. It's worth an asking though.

            Some ports are accommodating some aren't. When I came back they told me to use whatever leave I wanted. That was when I was still under post academy. As far as your schedule my port does m-f 8 to 4 during pre and post academy. No over time until your primary certified. Then you get baggage certified. Than months later secondary

            well, since SF is pretty far from my home, I’ll be preparing to go from Academy back to port immediately. Hopefully during the last weeks of academy I can score a place to live and move in right when I get back to SF

        • Coincidence or not, I FINALLY got the Tentative Selection email... a month after the NOR. Why I call it a coincidence is because yesterday I emailed if there was some hold up and then today I tested for TSA and passed. TSA already has me going in one day and then CBP sends the email haha. Anyway, I can finally start this long process.

            Everything for me was email. I selected the day I was available and they emailed me with an appointment like one or two days later.

          • I talked to a family member today and they said that someone call inquiring on how my investigator did his job. Has anyone experienced this? If so is it a good thing or bad? I am thinking it is OPR.

            • Hi Everyone,

              I am in 19-2 and I just checked my CASS and see that my E-Qip is green with a check mark and completed. Does this mean that I will be receiving an email about scheduling the SI?

              I am applying for JFK will my interview be at the port?

              Any feedback is is greatly appreciated.

              Thank you and good luck to all be patient.

                the SI will most likely be at the port you put as preferred box when you filled out the application on USAJOBs. Not always will it be the place you want it tho.

                My CBPO i put DFW/Irving, I had my SI at DFW

                BPA i put Irving/Dallas, my SI was in Lubbock, which is in west Texas 5 hours away from where im at.

                DFW/Dallas/Irving is all with-in 30mins-1 hour away from where i live
