    As far as I know when they call you for your EOD date they may only allow you to pick from two of those locations or three, maybe all four it just depends on man power at each im sure.

      • Has anyone ever been sent a letter stating they want you to clarify somethings in your BI. The letter is from DC and its the IA division. I was sent one and sent the letter back, I was wondering if anyone knows how that process goes?? Like who reads your response and makes the determination. I sent the letter with 5 letters of recommendations from my Lt and 4 Sgts from the San Diego Sheriffs Department.

        • Is the entry examination for a CBPO scored on a percentage? I noticed somene got 106 so I doubt this is the case. I took the test and knew about 75-80% of the answers for certain. Also, how would they score sections 4 and 5, Since there is no "correct" answer? Im probably freaking out about nothing.

            There is a possible 100 on the test. There are an additional 5 and 10 veterans preferance points added for those that qualify. So a perfect score with 10 preference points would be a 110. I scored a 94 with 10 preference points and my rating was 104. A person rating a 106 had to have scored a 96 out of the hundered and had 10 preference points.

            Who knows how or if the psyc eval was scored but good question. Do not sweat it. Study the guide you have been or will be sent and you will do fine.

              My bad, you already tested, so no worries. One down and several other steps to go along the way.

              Good luck

                  Do you guys mind telling me how long it took for your BI's? It's been about 4 months for me, and about two since I last spoke with my investigator. I called him recently, to ask a question, and he seemed surprised that I haven't received a call. I don't have anything negative in my background except for some credit issues almost 10 years ago, and I have some credit cards that I need to pay down. So I'm a little concerned that I haven't heard anything. I have moved quite a bit, so maybe that is the problem.

                    • If I switch my preference of location to Vermont, does that mean I will be going to Burlington? Or are there different POEs in Vermont? I orginally chose Buffalo as my preference but from what I have gathered, I think I had better stay away from Buffalo.

                      Also, if anyone has any info on Vermont or Buffalo POEs, that would be appreciated. I have been able to find some (mostly negative) things regarding Buffalo, but almost nothing referencing Vermont. Thanks folks

                        From what I've heard, you stand little chance of being offered Burlington.
                        There are quite a few PoE's in VT. Most likely you'll see Highgate or Derby Line as choices, maybe one of the smaller outports.

                        • I've been in EOD status for almost 2 months.....question is...are there people who have passed and sent on to EOD who are simply never called because the have too many applicants?....the battle for EOD has been long and hard but is seeming to be all for nothing if they never actually call... Just curious if anyone knows of someone/situation where this has happened.

                          • Does anyone know on average which type of port (Sea or Air) has more OT availability? I have my exam next week and I am applying in Miami. I hope to learn a lot more about CBP on this site.
