      I'm going to try to negotiate as a veteran for locations not listed. If unsuccessful I'll try for Newark.

        Ewr is always available sory_ann NYBseBall89 use your Vra status to get location you want bro, it's the ace card, don't accept anything else until you get that loc, you will get it....

    • Hey all, wishing everyone luck in this process. 19-1 here and finally got my poly scheduled. Only thing is, I chose Jfk as my port and they scheduled my poly in Boston. Is that normal? I spoke to another person and they got theirs scheduled in NY. Any info is appreciated. Thanks

        Who knows their process... If they called you for poly, anywhere.try your best to go, don't pass on that opportunity, you may have to wait for months again.... Good luck on your poly

        I picked D.C. for poly and they scheduled it in my home town, over 100 miles away. I think they're just trying to schedule people where they can to speed it up. Best of luck!

        Chellv89 I’m in 19-2 for JFK my suggestion is to go to Boston it’s not far and I would not pass on the opportunity. I selected JKF for the poly but if they call me to take elsewhere I will go.

        Thanks all for your replies. I appreciate it!

    • Currently in the pre-academy, under provisional, I went to go check on my background status and the CBP mobile app said i had no applications currently in. Does anyone know why this happens?

        They may be cleaning up the app again, or maybe your BI will be calling you to start the meeting process soon for ya.

    • TsFost Lol Thanks, I appreciate it. I will for sure keep my phone on me at all times. I picked Newark and it seems like its available because it's on the current announcement. I will for sure jot down the locations offered to share it here on the forum for those interested.

      • 19-4
        Just got an email from OPR stating they needed some additional information to finish the adjudication. Wanted to know if we could use email to expedite the process. So hopefully this is the last piece of the puzzle.

      • Does anyone one know if Once going through all the steps they get an email saying you passed your background? I have passed every other section except background and in pre academy, Im just trying to figure out if my background cleared because it says i have no application in CASS or the mobile app.

          I'd say the fact that you're still employed means that you haven't failed your background...yet.

          EE626619 Did you elect for provisional? That may be the reason your background is still being processed. My opinion you should be fine. Always stay positive.

      • "Your application is in the background phase"

        I received a follow up from one of the recruiters I reached out to. I was under the impression background didn't start until you passed the polygraph. Even though I opted for non provisional do they still give the option?

          That’s funny I received same email from a recruiter in my area. Still waiting to be scheduled so hopefully sometime this month they start schedule for March.

          There's also a little section that reads

          "A minimum of 1 year of specialized full-time work experience equivalent to at least the next lower grade level that demonstrates the ability to make rapid, accurate judgments and decisions with respect to the application of the regulations, instructions, and procedures for importing and exporting merchandise to and from the United States, or enforcement and administration of laws relating to the right of persons to enter, reside in, or depart from the United States"

          If you can spin your job experience to this then you technically qualify without LEO experience

      • xknuckles Just curious, why did you reapply to a different announcement?

          DrigoCBP , best wishes on getting anything in FL.... when I got my final call the lady on the phone laughed when I asked if t here was anything in FL. At my time (Aug 2019, or around), nothing in the Southeast was even available for someone with less than 8 years time in or senior 1st/2nd Line Supervisors.

          Talonderiel Lol yea i can see why but im not losing faith since i’ve seen that they typically work with Veteran applicants w the duty location they want. Either way, as long as i get the job, i dont care where i go.

      • Hello guys, today I took the drug test and to my surprise got "the call" as well I picked Newark NJ and I shall report to my duty station on Jun 11 for the two weeks orientation. Then from 6/26 to 11/2 are the Academy dates.

          Yeah I got the call 3 weeks ago, they told me classes are full till July, they even pushed my date a week later only after few days wait, lol, now they are still filling June. AJSIN0311 lol not like I want any earlier... But it's just weird...

          I wonder if they have different classes based on announcements. Reason I say that is when I was offered ports that were in need of officers my EOD would have been a good month earlier, but I chose a city on the Border I wanted that wasn't on that list.

          Congrats! I too received those academy dates when I got the job offer on Wednesday. V_AntCBP, I am wondering if it has anything to do with Male to Female ratio? sory_ann not sure if you are a female, but I am so maybe that's why we got a closer date?

      • V_AntCBP I still dont know why the difference in dates, I was truly expecting to eod around your time. Also, the drug test was today, and I thought I was going to wait weeks...I am happy dont get me wrong, I guess its just a CBP "thing" lol...

      • fonzi7979 Thank you! I think that having a BP application too might have had a positive effect...and because of it the lady who called today with the job offer insisted on the Southwest border locations. I declined the BP job offer and she said that she was also offering me the CBPO position and I accepted it.

          If you're a female, CBPO is likely a better choice for you than BP.

          Yes, sory_ann, congrats, and good luck at FLETC, I guess CBP OFO is just the best choice possible for you, since you agree with merlin436 "If you're a female, CBPO is likely a better choice for you than BP". Glad you made the right choice. Border Patrol is going to be a challenge, but this female is up to the challenge, I'll GLADLY take your spot!
