        Late reply... I'm 19-2 Direct Hire and I just completed my poly on 11/29, received the passing email on the same day.

    • 18-6 and even though I have an EOD 20 days out, I still have yet to receive any letter, email or otherwise, they haven't even gotten my sf75 for my current job, the suspense is killing me.

      I know it's the government, but Cheesus Chroist!

        Two weeks out I received my first email with the official acceptance letter and a week out I received another email for onboarding paperwork. You should also receive an email from FLETC to register.

        raudy06 & @Midnight39' . I got my onboarding paperwork email today

    • Well after a loooooong 2yrs I finally got the call today! EOD April 20th and FLETC May 4 . Unfortunately I did not get the port I applied for...only options in TX were Eagle Pass and Presidio sooooo being that Eagle Pass was closer to my husband's station and my family (5 hrs) I took Eagle Pass. Little bummed out that I have to relocate but if I had turned it down that would have been it for me and I'm out. Couldn't reapply due to age Hopefully with time I could transfer back down with my family.

      So it was a bitter sweet day for us.

        fort1978 thank you! I was fingers crossed hoping to get that call sometime this week so it was a relief to get it. Just hoping nothing else comes up before my EOD to delay or postpone my process. I have all my green lights on app so hoping that they stay that way. Also Would be cool to have same FLETC dates .
        Dont stress tomorrow's medical..easy does it ..helps that already went through it so know what to expect. Thats my train of thought if I have to redo mine. Keeping fingers crossed for you to get your call soon.

        I was offered Eagle Pass and Prescido, but ultimately chose Lukeville AZ over those locations. Hopefully everything works out for you and I probably will cross paths with you since my FLETC date is 04/16.

        SpinyNorman83 thank you. I needed to be as close to my family as possible so Eagle Pass it was.
        Hey and save me a seat in class at FLETC lol. Good luck to you!

    • VRA 19-6.

      I received the call a month ago; I accepted Comstock as my station due to how close it was to San Antonio. My EOD is December 9th but how does that process actually flow? I understand you will receive your EOD papers in the mail a month prior and receive acceptance letters via e-mail two weeks prior as well but what happens then? Do you contact your station that you report to when you do receive the acceptance letters? What happens after that? Do you simply fly to the nearest airport and shack up in a hotel for a few days before physically reporting to the station? What happens before you board the buses for the Academy?

      It's a bit vague on how to proceed past receiving the call and accepting your offer.

      You may get the paperwork days before. Just depends.

      Your EOD will be the first business day of the week. You EOD at 0800 or whatever time, show up at sector HQ. You spend 2 days onboarding doing admin and paperwork. Third day you report super early, get driven to the airport, and flown to academy.

      Your travel there and hotel those first three nights are on you.

      Comstock isn't particularly close to San An, almost all stations In south Texas proper and west Texas are within 3 hours, many 2 or less. If you live in del Rio it's 2.5 so that's good.

        Dodge_Guy19-4 I knew that they would grant it, it just needed to get pushed across an adjudicators desk, and that's the time consuming part. Would have to imagine that they automate that at some point. Have you figured out where you want to end up after the academy?

      • Hi!

        I applied for 19-10 on July 11th and for 19-12 on Sept. 10th. The overall process has gone pretty smooth, except for my Medical, which they requested further examination. My Dr. certified that I am good to go, but I haven't received my medical clearance. Does anyone know approximately how long this takes? I am also pending my Poly and Drug Test which have me super anxious. I've read some pretty negative feedback from the Poly Test and although I have 0 incidents in my record, makes me nervous how inaccurate it seems to be.

        Hoping to receive any type of update soon!

          - Medical clearance from what I've seen, can take anywhere from a few weeks, up to 10 months in the most extreme cases.

          - Don't believe everything you hear about the Polygraph portion of the process. Experiences vary greatly. Be forthcoming and you should be alright.

          My medical took over a year to complete because they would notice something else in the paperwork you send them from the doctor. Each time I emailed in more medical paperwork, it took approximately 2 months before I received an email requesting more information on a particular ailment. So it all depends on how much medical paperwork you are submitting to them.

          Very sorry for your situation bro, but I'm not even sure if as a CBPO trainee they're going to like this. I'm not sure im5 just guessing you should consult with someone before putting this out there. If you did already, cool. Again I'm sorry this had to happen to you and your family.

              Met with my BI once for an hour interview at my work (federal employees he said had to be interviewed at current agency). That was 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything from him since. He told me he would submit everything, but all the clarifications we did looked good. Said he would call me if management needed anymore information. I'm hoping that since it's been 3 weeks since the in persons with me and my references have been done it means that it's going well. I got lucky with provisional though so I'm just counting down till EoD

              Well, If you don't hear anything after meeting your background investigator it means that they are complete with your case and has been submitted to their control and most likely approved and forwarded to CBP for adjudication. If it gets kicked back then they need more additional information and your report is not approved to be forwarded. Your background investigator will contact you and meet you again to get more information and may ask you to clarify any additional information that comes up. The more you meet your investigator, the longer it takes to get to the final adjudication stage.

              I have 3 investigators. The one, I met for the initial meeting lasted about 2 hours and met 1 additional time. Never met the 2nd one but has called me a couple times. The 3rd one, i am going to meet with for the 2nd time today. The 2nd and 3rd meeting, wanted clarification on the same items we went over in the first meeting. I feel like its pretty redundant to ask the same questions 3 or 4 times. Not exactly sure, what this next meeting is about.

              Thanks everyone for all the info.

          • Quick question anyone on here fail the vision test? Do they give you another opportunity to go to your own doctor at your own expense to get your own exam?

              fort1978 it was for CBP. They do administer the depth perception, and for some reason I didn’t do well with their test. So when I went to see the optometrist everything was perfect and passed with flying colors. He told me I had perfect vision which I knew never had any issues. The doctor told me that particular style of test they administer there has a high failure rate with people who have perfect vision.

              Same issue here. I failed the depth perception test at the CBP contracted facility. Never had vision issue my whole life so I knew something was wrong. About 7-8 weeks later I got an email saying I needed to see an eye doctor for my depth perception. Saw my eye doctor and passed everything easily.

              I failed near vision and had uncorrected 20/100. I got new glasses and passed the second time, but my optometrist put me down for 20/200 uncorrected. I was worried they were gonna fail me for that, but I ended up passing.

              Depends on the "total person" is what I understand. Also the severity of the offence comes to mind. I dont want you to put your UCMJ out on the table, but think of it this way. Art.15 for busting curfew in Korea is no big deal compared to an Art.15 for a DUI at the gate to Fort Hood. What really comes into play is age and maturity at time of offense and if your background shows that you dont have a pattern of poor judgement. Chances are if it was nonjudicial then it can be overcome. Now if you were facing courts martial or chapter because of it that's a bit harder. I've seen guys get a DUI and get a TS/SCI back after a lengthy wait

              Be honest with yourself and the investigation, tell truth. They probably will want to know if you actually signed the duty log in behalf of your buddy. Get ready to deliver a detailed information about the incident documents, POC and others. I actually had a disciplinary action the process was never completed, not my fault, I did fully cooperate with everything and I had my BI done in 4 months.
