  • Had my BI call yesterday for more clarifications that management was wanting to know. He said the person must be picky because he was sure he gave them ample answers in the first report. He said it won't have any affects on my EoD date so that's good. Now to wait to see if this will finally be all that's needed to get my BI to fully clear or if there will be another call with more clarifications. Management mainly wanted to know about my divorce since I put the dates down wrong. I listed the divorce date wrong. I put the estimated date of when we separated not finalized. Other then that they mainly asked more questions on past credit accounts that are closed. To anyone in the process you should make sure all your numbers and dates are on the dot lol.

    • VRA GS9 20-1

      Completed Fitness, Medical, and SI quickly within a month. Sent off eqip. Now the waiting begins.

      So from what I've read, is it safe to assume that VRA GS9 candidates can pick where they want to work? I've read that for the most part, has anyone experienced otherwise?

        Either San Antonio if I can, to stay in Texas where I live. Denver would be another choice, we like it there in Co, and have family in the area as well. Not too interested in the Sothern Border if I have other options. Still a long way out though from any of these decisions.

    • Hello all. Quick question for those who are already working... is 49 too old? I am physically fit and can pass fitness test with no prob, but wanted to get feedback regarding working in the field and retirement at this age. Also, how bad is academy with regards to physical training and trt. Yes, I am a veteran. Thanks in advance!

        If you're fit enough today and you plan on staying fit enough for the next 20 years, no...I don't think 49 is too old...especially in the right setting in the right port.

    • Been waiting for 2 months since EQIP was sent to OPR for review. How long does it usually take for an OPR notice? Currently seating at 50% now, awaiting for Poly test.

        Congrats Jesus the waiting begins. If you are hoping for NE region the wait can be long. Southwest region seems to be moving along. I am waiting almost a year and no polygraph exam has been scheduled.

        antoniojeff808 wow 1year wait for Poly. I guess its all about being patient from this point on then.

        fonzi7979 I applied at the SW, California to be specific. Hoping the wait is not that long.

        JESUS SANCHEZ it really does depend on a lot. I've seen people wait over a year and some take 3 or 4 months for the whole process.

        I'm actually on the same boat 50% so far, awaiting for the Background Check to complete, poly exam and Drug Test. I've seen different timelines from person to person, so lets just hope for this to happen quickly.

    • JESUS SANCHEZ same here. Had my SI 10/29, what area are you trying to get?

      For those waiting for Poly and BI, was anyone’s wait sooner than several months from SI if you elected provisional? Just wondering if provisional gets expedited or not.

        My whole process from application to final call was just over 3 months. My BI is still ongoing of course. I chose the SWB and DH. Applied for GS9 and GS7. Took the GS7 position due to a better set of locations the the GS9 offered when called.

    • Does anyone know how the Sit and Reach test is administered? Is the "zero" starting point the same for all cadets or do they do modified starting point for each cadet?

        My friend who just went to FLETC in Aug was sent a letter about what the final testing would be PT wise. The sit and reach was still on it. I don't remember the rest, but was pretty sure it also had sit ups, push ups, and a 1.5 mile timed run.

    • Quick question how long does it take more medical team to fill out forms. Little over a week ago I was informed that I won't be moving on in the process because of my uncorrected vision. However, today I got a notification reminding me of my SI for this Thursday. In this case who should I contact? I tried communicating with my case manager but she never responded, luckily my answers were solved here.

        Take the SI. Pass it. Get Lasik, and then when the time is up on the healing process reapply and have the SI done and over with?

        Hey thanks TS. I'll probably have to bite the nail on the Lasik. Family is already spending a lot on college, and they already had to pay for an expensive but necessary oral surgery. Only thing I was confused on was the medical being updated by now and the rest of the process being suspended.

    • How long after do you get the call once you passed everything on the app and the only thing it says is “final offer pending”

    • feeling the nerves today have my SI in less than 24 hours. the pft 1 does it include the crate thing and sidesteps? or is it just the 3 PU SU step test? sorry the repeated question. its the nerves.

        standtheman no you're right. the side step and lift tests were a part of the old PFT testing. They no longer require it. I have no idea what dalan is talking about unless he took his PFT back when they required it plus the lift test.

        They dropped alot of the fitness stuff to get more people to be able to pass everything to be honest.

    • Received my final selection email today, they still haven't gotten my SF75 from my current job though.

        EE626619 First off congrats, thats like half the process done the other half being the background. (Waiting on my poly somewhat patiently.)
        Please note I have not had a CBP background, this is information I have gathered reading the forums heavily and one I went through one background for another law enforcement job. They might look at other applications, one of the questions on the eqip was "Have you ever had a background investigation done?" (dont remember the exact wording) Everything you filled out they will do checks into, credit, criminal, etc. They will have a sit down and go over the info on each page to confirm. Then they begin the field interviews shortly after. They go to your place of work, where you lived and possibly talk to the officers involved if you had any criminal issues. I never had police issues so that part of the background I had never anything to do with that. You probably know this already but its super important... dont hide stuff, everyone makes mistakes own it and get your story to them first. Think of it this way its a lot easier to convince them you will no longer be late to work or blow through stop signs then to convince them that you are no longer a liar. Good luck on your background and I hope you get through quickly.
