    Nope. You will not get a letter stating you passed the medical/physical. You will get a letter saying you were sent to TSU.

        Really? Buffalo will always need new hires? Thanks for the vote of confidence .

        I just tested in April and I feel like there are so many people ahead of me. I got a 95 on the exam, and have my BI done already because I applied for BP in january. Hopefully, that is enough to get an offer within the next year. I really hope they don't stop hiring or anything.
        This is just a SWAG, but at any given time there is probably between 450-500 Officers in Buffalo and about 15 to 50 open slots.

        Yeah...Buffalo is one of those ports that never stops hiring.

Your travels were questioned as to prior to filling out your forms and prior to meeting your BI, so a trip should not affect your status in any way, and I seriously doubt that you have to call IA to notify them of your trip. You are in TSU and they should be your contact for anything. Wish I was in TSU as well!!!...

            I wish you were in TSU also you and barnj deserve it.

              • Hello

                Hey There,

                I've been trying to register on these forums forever. I check officer.com and CASS out everyday, biting my fingers waiting for my EOD and FLETC date.

                Everything has gone rather smoothly except the medical. Still waiting on the BI and Qual results.

                I look forward to working with you if this thing ever turns out to be more than a pipe dream.

                *Also, I've read the Yoda Saga. If It makes you feel any better I took the test over a year ago and my file was left on the Medical desk to collect dust until I called to clear it up.

                • Tuffstuffcbp,
                  just curious that you met with your B.I. & your medical hasn't cleared yet. On CASS it says that until my medical clears I will not meet with an investigator. Hopefully my hearing test goes well so I can join those already in TSU!

                    I really have no idea. My DHS nurse was suprised that I had met with my BI too. I keep wondering if my completed BI file is just being ignored until my medical clears. I hope Quals and BI clear so that I have a reason to ask the Med team to hustle for me.

                      I really hate to burst your bubble but, if you are going to be 37 in summer and summer is alomost here, the way things are going i'm sorry i don't think you will get a TO...if you didn't even get a NOR yet. The age limit might just catch you in the end bro...sorry.
                      These hands need your guidance!

                        In this job, a lot can do with what you make of it.

                        Good luck and welcome aboard.

                        • The BI called me like 7:40pm when I'm eating dinner...Since then, Im still trying to gather all the information he needs. References and some paperwork...He is actually meeting with me tomorrow morning at my work place...

                          Guys and Gals, Please wish me luck....

                          • Some odd ball questions I haven't found yet. I like to know everything before it happens if possible so...

                            how much time do you get from your last day of EOD to your FLETC? a day? the weekend? And again, how much time from your last day of FLETC to your first day of working at your port? I ask because i'm reading it's best to have your own car there if possible, but I only think that's possible for those that live in a driveable distance. So Cal, probably not but who knows.


                            And for those at FLETC, what do your weekends consist of?

                              Good luck brother, dress well. And Relax, you've already answered most of the questions in your packet.

                              Some tips:

                              Type up and print out as many references you can, complete with addresses and phone #'s. Make a neat list, your BI will appreciate this.

                              Go to freecreditreport.com and print out your latest credit report, once again your BI will appreciate this. Costs about $15 dollars.

                              Once again, good luck.

Takes the edge off!!! There are alot of insightful people here (Merlin--Yoda whats up guys?) Anyone here waiting for SFO/OAK?
                                After waiting two months I am also able to post. Im waiting for an SFO/Oak TO, but my current TO is CA, SW Border. I have a feeling we're in for a long wait.
