      It's a sixteen minute mile and a half, isn't it?

      If you run a ten minute mile, you'll finish with time to spare.

        It's a 16.5 minute 1.5 until October.

        If you normally run a ten minute mile, you'll finish with time to spare only if you don't twist an ankle, wrench a knee, break a toe, or otherwise injure yourself enough to slow yourself down. With a person really hurting and with the best he can put out is a ten minute mile, I'd expect him to be out of the program and out of a job.

          Our final PEB was blag flagged, so we had to run it before class the next morning. Kinda sucked for those who passed the first one, cuz we had to get up and sweated up extra early. But everyone passed so it was cool.

            Like someone else just alluded to- I can already tell that you are a rat. You will drop a dime on a classmate or co-worker in a heartbeat.

            "Shouldn't you be preparing for FLETC?" So now he can't post on here because he has too much preparation to worry about?
            As "Tracey Flick" as Reapplied's post seems to be, she has a point. Some people are remarkabley thin-skinned and if they found out that a CBP officer was discussing their body odor on a public forum, it wouldn't go well. The reality is that the internet age has brought a new dimension to discretion. I would not comment AS an officer anything that would embarrass me as an officer if supervisors saw it.

            As much as i'd hate to dissuade Amahast from posting his experiences, because I read them with baited breathe in anticipation of the job, for his own sake he would be well served to keep the more passenger critical comments off of a publically accessible forum. Again, the contribution will be sorely missed, but better safe than sorry just in case some vindictive jerk reads this (as we have seen they do). All pains should be taken to keep the job that has taken over a year to get.

            Hopefully no offence is taken, I do look forward to your posts Amahast.

              That would be me. Do you want the bad news or good news??

              Well, the good news is I GOT THE CALL!!!! Like an hour ago. Choices were Oroville or Point Roberts.

              The bad news, and take it as you will, the guy told me that he only had one position left. I asked if he had one position or one PORT left. He said "Oh sorry, I have TWO left. Positions that is." SO I will be deciding and calling him back by tomorrow afternoon and giving him my decision so for those of you waiting for Norther Border, WA, after me, Im figuring there will only be ONE person left to call. He also said Blaine "shut down" with the hiring. Sorry fellas.

              EOD on either June 15th or 22nd. So since RobRok took Sumas and I'll most likely be takng Pt Roberts so there will only be Oroville left.

              Like I said, take it as you will. It turned out that a previous post telling me that people who get offers here on out wont start the academy til after summer. Good lucky everyone.

              Oh, UofU76, to answer your question, I was never notified I was transferred to TSU, but my CASS cleared yesterday so I guess Im in the same boat as RobRok.

                    To anyone who went to FLETC or currently attending FLETC......is there any books I could read in advance to help me before getting into FLETC. Maybe the books you have to read in FLETC for your tests (thats if those books are available at book stores.)

                      Not really. Just wait and see what they tell to focus on in class and take notes off the powerpoints. There is so much info that your gonna almost faint when you see it on your desk the first day! Just take it in stride.

                                Well i didnt. I brought 2 exact pairs of black new balance. 1 pair to leave in my locker for p.t./d.t. etc, and one to wear around on my free time. Things may have changed since '07 though.
