    Sorry for the long explanation. Also, just to let you guys know the person from MHC said my qualification would be done within the week, then off to TSU land.
    You can ask for a pay match and they might do GS-5 step XX, if they don't you will only be getting a pay cut for a year from your EOD... then it's back to GS-7!
    Do a bit of savings, from now for that year, if they don't match your salary...

      I’ve been going through the process for one year and two months now. The last two things I was waiting for were my BI which cleared on December of 2008, and now all I need are my qualifications. When I first applied in December of 2007, I applied for SW Borders including Andrade, Calexico, and El Centro at a GS 5 (I was 37 years old at time of Appling). There was another Geo preference that came out in June of 2008 GS-7 SW Borders excluding Andrade & Calexico (38 yrs old the time I applied).

      Well I got a call from MHC today regarding finishing up my qualifications. The person said “I have some good and bad news for you.” The person said the bad news is I am withdrawing your GS-7 SW Border TO because at the time of applying you were 38 years old. Then the person says good news is we will be reinstating your GS-5 Geo Preference TO.

      My questions are even though I was 38 year old at the time of applying for the GS-7 position was I not grandfathered in for the age preference as of 2007? My second question is I am a current GS-7 employee for the DOD, as a GS-5 CBPO will they match my current salary at the GS 5 range?

      Sorry for the long explanation. Also, just to let you guys know the person from MHC said my qualification would be done within the week, then off to TSU land.
      I would think they might pay match you and start you at a higher step on the GS-5 scale, but it's really up to them.

                  You know, the important things, hehehe.
                  Thanks. I did the 16:30 run and the 300 course and those are gone now.
                  I was the last of the 800's so I was told it was all changing for the fiscal year. There are some folks here that probably have a better idea. Sorry I can't be of much help. :-)

                  • Someone from my port in class 927 just did the run last week and said it was still 16:30.
                    One of the powerpoints on fletc we watched pre-academy said the run is now 15:00. However, my fletc forms I recieved still said 16:30 so I dunno...

                            • Hi everyone. Medical cleared on the CASS today and it's all green check marks! I understand that I now wait to be sent to TSU. Any ideas on how long it takes before CASS changes? Also, any others getting close for LA/Long Beach?
