I am currently in TSU as of August 08 for a geo pref of NJ. CO94, we have the same timeline but I went into TSU on the 21st so you and Hound77 will go before me but best of luck to you guys and everyone else.
    Yeah, Nj has been real slow. seems like other areas are getting picked up alot quicker. I have friends at my current job that were way behind me and got picked up in Philly already.

    • Vermont?

Completed and returned paperwork 12/08, did the VBT, medical, and fitness tests. CASS shows VBT completed, everything else is still pending, but my case in the security office for the BI? Seems out of order. Also still waiting to be drug tested and meeting with the BI. Guess it's just a hurry up and wait game?
      I tested in July/August and received an 88. I thought my score was at least competitive. What could the scenario be?

      - Small amount of candidates picked scores 100 down
      - Still going down the list

      I thought I would have at least received a TO by now; it has been 6 months since I tested.

Moving from BOP to CBP is worth potentially losing some money on the frontside due to the quicker promotion (GS-11 takes forever in the BOP), plus I'll be going from the PHL locality to NY locality which makes up from going from GL to GS pay scale. Manhattan would be nice, but JFK isn't that much further by train.
        Where are you in the BOP?
        Sounds like we are making the same move

            Hey Merlin

            Been assigned to the crackhouses, the old dorms, the new dorms, off site but dang, never the Taj. Hopefully the Taj this time. I have been a smurf but love coming back to FLETC in regular clothes. I too hope the chicken never changes. The best part of FLETC dining, wondering if the animal that is walking at the back entrance will be dinner the next night.

              Yeah, I was suprised, it's not like they took into consideration my federal standing. I just found out today that VBT is in this month too. It feels like they are rushing the process. Only if they took into consideration my current SSBI with DOJ...

For example if youre from michigan you get the winter coat, but not if your from miami. If you want the bdu style though, you gotta order that seperate with your vf solutions account. You get your baton and that when you qualify. The firearm is the same one you use all through fletc and they overnight it to your POE when you graduate.
                So your practically issued all new gear and not hand me downs on everything? Thanks

                • Thx for the update on the new opening! I think I'm applying this time. My reserve sheriffs academy start date is still in flux so . . .

                  Thanks

                    Both of mine are still pending also.

                      • How early are you issued these "smurfs", and the other uni's? On a separate note, does anyone have the number to contact MHC?

                                Most likely. Maybe not.

                                My "Marie" came to me secondhand, as did my baton. Occasionally the duty belts come slightly used, especially if you need a trade-in.
