      Currently at Fletc for what?

      Anyways...nothing would happen. Nobody you're applying to would likely know, unless you told them. Nobody you're applying to would likely care if they did know.

      Now, the agency you're currently at FLETC with...they might not like the idea of you applying elsewhere so soon. You might be burning that bridge, if you did leave them.

        There is no process for bringing along family. Anything you arranged would have to be entirely on your own and all on your dime.

        After training hours, you're pretty much on your own. You can come and go as you please. You are supposed to be sleeping in the room provided for you, and eventually the maid service would notify CBP if it appeared you weren't sleeping there. Then you'd be 'splaining things. It might be better to come back to the room to shower and mess up the bed a bit, if you were living off-base with the family.

              I wasn't really looking in to staying with them, but rather just having them close by so we can visit. Was curious if anyone had any suggestions or insight.

                I actually enjoyed my EOD today, except for all the paperwork! There were only 4 of us that EOD'd and they are cool guys.

                • I have a question for anyone at FLETC or who has been there... Is it possible to take some time off after you graduate? Since I'm already somewhat on the east coast I'd like to stay over there a few more days to visit family. Thanks in advance.

                      MHC people have different information on just about everything, I was told I had to decline by 9 out of 10 of MHC people, this until I actually re-applied and declined my previous offer.... Then my adjudicator called me to let me know that she had to toss out my BI since it appeared in the system that I had DECLINED the offer.... from that she made a call to MHC and they called me and explained how it really works... So, they re-instated my previous offer so that my BI could keep moving...and about a month later I got my NEW TO and EVERYTHING changed over AUTOMATICALLY!!!!!!...........
                      You will disappear from CASS for a couple of days as they update your info, you'll receive a NEW TO in the mail with your NEW ID and Information Packet.... YES you will have to do fingerprint cards once again! NO SF-86 though...
                      I have lost count of how many times I have explained this in the last 2 months already!...
                      THAT IS IT!.... NOTHING ESLE NEEDED!....
                      those of you already in TSU, I don't know how it works for you if you NOW want to change, and those thinking that this could speed up their process...
                      WRONG!...it won't, everything keeps moving along at the same speed.

                      • tsu

                        I've been in TSU for 40 days and I decided to call MHC after reading a previous post that it was possible to check where you are in the pecking order in order to get the call.

                        Somewhere earlier I had read that they choose those with the highest exam scores first but the lady said that that is not the case. The lady was really helpful and told me that when you are in TSU, they ONLY go by your date into TSU and nothing else. She was also able to tell me that I had 6 guys in front of me who are waiting to get "the call" for the Seattle area and that the guy who is first in line had a TSU enter date of 01/29. So, I now know how TSU really works and that I've got probably another 30-45 days to wait for the Seattle area...

                        I hope this experience helps someone.

                        Now for my question:

                        HOW CAN I FIND OUT WHICH PORTS OUTSIDE OF THE USA DOES PRESCREENINGS FOR PASSENGERS COMING INTO THE USA? I know of places like Vancouver B.C. and Calgary but where can I find the info for all the ports?

                        Thanks in advance.
