  • What does the Fitness test entail? On the cbp website it just says the pushups, sit-ups, and step test. Going through to the fitness readiness guide it says the test would have all the above plus a side step and a lift lower. Which of the two is it?

      It's just sit-ups , push-ups and the step up. They got rid of the side step and lift lower.

      I’m 18-9 DH at 50% I had to submit my e-qip twice, so my file got sent to OPM on June 2018, then again January 2019. So let’s hope I don’t get to wait another year almost... also I reapplies to a regular announcement

  • Any one got an EOD yet?

        Pay depends on the area, GS-09 pay isn't a flat pay across the board. Locality pay for certain area's are higher then others use this website to input the state and county along with the GS level and it will tell you your base pay.

        https://www.federalpay.org/gs/calculator

    • corsair I wouldn’t think so because I believe you are at base pay with no incentives while at the academy. So all gs9’s will be the same etc. but I don’t know so that’s why I’m asking. Nice think is that I’ll be collecting GI Bill while I’m there too if about $1300 a month.

        There is locality pay. That follows a person to the academy and that could mean the difference of thousands of dollars yearly...or hundreds per pay check.

        Plus, there's options like insurance deductions, retirement contributions and other personal choices that will ultimately affect take-home pay.

        MMatthews you can use your GI Bill for OJt during the academy and post academy.

          David1984 Got it, thank you! Fingers crossed. I read that additional paperwork most likely puts you in another 4-6 months of medical limbo. Back to waiting.

          mudboned You're welcome. If you don't hear back within the 5 days, you can always call the medical unit and see if something went wrong. It could just be that, a lot of people also sent in additional info when you did. Or with the holiday coming up this weekend, the staff might be out of the office or reduced.

          mudboned I hope that’s not true about 4-6 months of waiting again. I think it will probably be a month to hear something back.

          David1984 I hope it's not true either and that we both hear back very soon!

          SmokeScreen07 I will wait it out and if I don't hear back before my given deadline, I will call.

      • If you’re a VRA applicant, they give you a lot of choices.

          You can request Dallas, even if you’re not a vet. Many people in my class got ge port they wanted and they weren’t VRA. 2 guys at my port (they came a week after they are under regular announcement) got dfw. They will be at the academy next week

      • 7878bg SimpleLifeCA they first start with their critically short locations at the southern border and the go through your selections. I had all north western port selections and that’s what I got.
