  • Hello Everyone,

    Update as of my last post April 19

    Just as a little intro to what i have been going through.

    I applied last Aug 08, and outta nowhere i received a package with the TO letter this March 09 and To be completely honest i figured i was out of the running. Well i turned in my prelim paper work at the end of March, and have completed the physical/medical, drug screen and VBT, I recently met with my BIs over the last couple of weeks and on Cass everything is checked off except for my medical evaluation -- which i may add that I received the paperwork they sent me for further info on a previous injury I sent that back within the timeframe they requested and its been a good month or two since i sent that in. Apparently everything is completed My question is, how long does it take for them to review and clear you from your medical documentation? Shouldnt it have already cleared? Once that clears I guess im sent to TSU to join all you folks? Seems to me that its pretty much gonna be over 90 days at least to get out of TSU?


    When i applied, i chose East TX. Any one else on here choose East Tx?
    TSU since 07/10/2009

    • TX54- I also applied for East TX and had to sent medical docs to clear me. I sent in my docs about two weeks ago and still cass has not updated.

      Have you thought about calling or sending an email?

I haven't heard of someone getting 2, or did you get into somthing since your last response? Or did you maybe not answer one of the issues? Whats the specifics?
            Well the first NOPA they asked about each issue which included the total amount in which I owe. Now this 2nd one is asking about the total that I owe. Like Yoda said, just do what they ask and deal with it. Annoying, yes, do I feel lke doing it anymore, no. But Ive like the rest here have spent plenty of energy in the whole process, whats another correspondence.....

              I suppose one could look at it that way.

              It's the way it is. Hiring starts at the beginning of the FY(10/01) and runs until they've hired all the people they need or until the money runs out. My understanding is that this summer's "hiring freeze" was brought on mostly by the fact that it has been a fortuitous year so far for the folks in hiring. Lesser numbers of folks this year have quit, retired, were fired, failed the program, et. al. That meant that few numbers of classes were need to fulfill CBP's annual hiring goals for 09.

                If you've made it to TSU you've past the hurdles of pre-employment.

                Where GS-07 jams people up is:

                One, in the TO. You can't get a TO for a GS-07 slot unless there is a GS-07 slot available.

                and...

                Two, in qualifications. Obviously it is more difficult to qualify for a GS-07 position than a GS-05. More difficult usually means greater scrutiny and a more deeper vetting of a person's quals. All that takes time, usually more time than qualifying for a GS-05.

                So if you put in for both GS 5&7 do you think it would delay getting a TO?

                      Sorry man, you can only use the GI Bill for OJT is you have NEVER used it for anything else before. At least thats the way i understand it.

                        Hard to say. But yes, normally if it was good news he/she would keep us all up to date on the progress.

                          Found this on military.com Notice the note on the bottom:

                          Eligibility
                          You may be eligible if you are eligible for the GI Bill either under the Active Duty (Veteran) or Reserve GI Bill programs and:

                          You are no longer on active duty
                          You were recently hired or promoted
                          You left active duty less than 10 years ago or
                          You are currently a member of the Guard or Reserve (Reserve GI Bill)
                          So, if you are qualified for the GI Bill and you have started a new job or apprenticeship program, you should apply for this little known GI Bill benefit. In some cases, the VA will even pay retroactively for OJT from the past 12 months.

                          Note: You may not receive GI Bill OJT benefits at the same time you receive the GI Bill education benefits.

                              Yes, this happens when steps expire or in my case when they "erroneously" enter the clear code for a step.
