Then the rest is them telling you about what to expect and how tough the job is and are you ready for it.
    Not even remotely close. Don't go into any of the Federal the interviews cocky, because that will be you're undoing. Being humble goes a lot farther than most would think.

    This is why there is no purpose in all these BP threads being created, one for each announcement, each year, etc. The good information and answers can be found in the very large BP thread. Anytime there is a new thread, it is redundant, and increases the chance of bad information being passed along.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    How I described was exactly how my secret service interview went so that’s what I’m basing my response from

    Yup just heard back myself, submitted my e-QIP yesterday, scheduled medical for 5/15 and the structured interview for 5/30. To anyone who's been through the interview can you give some insight on what it's like and any advice during it? Thanks and good luck to other applicants who are going through it as well.

    My medical and pt test is scheduled for Friday 5/10:19. I kinda hope it slows down a little. I was thinking it would take about a year and it’s been 2 weeks and I have done everything except polygraph and interview which is the 22nd.

    I guess by definition it is a conditional offer but they called it a tentative selection for border patrol agent. Because I have LE experience I get to skip the written test. I completed the questionnaire and the form that "accepts" the tentative offer. I believe I am waiting on my E-Qip packet which I have already completed several months back for another agency so it should only be a review and resubmit. So we shall see.

    So they already have you a conditional offer based on your resume? Congrats!

    2019 Border Patrol Applicants

    just completed the application today for GL-9 with the Border Patrol. Anyone else applying? I’m out of South Carolina. I haven’t verified 100% what the PT test is for BP. I have watched some dated videos of it saying like 20-25 push ups, 20-25 sit-ups and a step test but I’m not sure if that’s still the standard. I believe I read the ad right that if you qualify for GL-9 you won’t have to take the written test. I hope it’s true cause I suck at written test. The test anxiety works me up every time.
