    As far as the announcements, I was going off the fact that two of my buddies had in district moves because of an announcement sent out. I'm guessing that was their way of saying the email went out to the district.

    As for Houston and moving there from Laredo, it could be possible, but from the list just to OPREF and the amount of people within that district wanting to get there, it may take a very long time. I would just bank on staying in Laredo for at least your first three years and hope you can get lucky with an in district move.

      Medical came back with a problem. My good cholesterol was 35 when it should be at least 40. Otherwise Im in great shape 27 years old 6' 4" 200lbs. QTC sent me the paper explaining the problem and referred me to my primary care provider. Anyone know what Im supposed to do? I called HQ and asked them if I needed to get a doctors letter etc but so far no call back.
      Thanks,

        Did you ever go to your follow up medical visit where they go over all your test results?

          No I haven't gone. I was told to return in 72 hours to read the TB test and that was all. No one ever mentioned a review. Is that standard practice with the USMS? What I found strange about this letter was that it didn't give instructions as to how to proceed. Im wondering if it is a report that is sent both to the applicant and the USMS. I will call QTC on Monday.
          Thanks

            Medical

            I'm not sure what SOP is but when I went to my first medical they did all the test and I had to go back for the TB read. They then scheduled me to come back and see the actual doctor. I have to go this Thursday and he is supposed to go over the test results and all my paperwork.

              Medicals

              Back in the day they used Occupational Health it may be someone else now but either way it should go like this:

              1) Get an appointment with the Nursing Staff
              2) They conduct Blood, Urine, Eye, EKG and TB
              3) When they expect the results back (labs) you get a Dr. Appointment
              4) The Dr. Conducts the Physical and -Follow-Up (if needed)
              5)The Dr. files his results with USMS
              6) if you fail a portion you are usualy given a form (by mail) to go to your Primary Care Physician to have them sign saying your fine.

              Example I originaly failed the eye exam. I was sent a form to go to an eye Dr. to sign off saying I am in the requirements. He finished off by saying don't worry about the co-pay you shouldn't be here period.

              You will get that. A follow-up for no reason, others skeet by with no problems.

                So far they haven't given me any instructions. The BP physical had problems (clinic messed up my eye sight) and they said to get a doctors letter within 15 days. So far the USMS hasn't given me any instructions.

                  Anything new

                  Has anyone heard anything about their process or where their background is? Spoke to HR today and they said my fit test would be scheduled in the next few weeks but no word on the background. There is supposed to be an academy in March but I am starting to worry if there is a chance of making that one.

                      Yeah, let me know if you hear anything about your fit or you background.

                      Also did you clear up the medical issues or are you still waiting on that. I had to do a follow up with my doctor but it is all clear now.

                        I believe my medical issue has been cleared up. I didnt have a follow up. Im still waiting on the FIT but I should be ok, today I climbed a mountain, walked/ran 4 miles and then chased down some perps later. Good times

                          Academy

                          Spoke with HR this week and was told that the next academy is going to be end of April not March. She said that my background is under review and should be done by then. Here's to hoping.

                            That is good for me! I was worried that I might have my house close while I was at the academy in March. My background should be done because they used my current employers SF 86. Looks like things are starting to move.

                              Still no news on the Fit test. Currently awaiting a response from HR regarding a possible duty location. Im really hoping they let me stay in my current city. Anyone else heard anything about the next academy in the end of April? It cant come too soon because I was just informed by my boss that I was going to do a three month stint in the lovely processing center. ug Time to buy some air fresheners!

                                I haven't heard anything either. I thought they would have called already about doing the fit test but I guess not.

                                Yeah I wish they would hurry up the wait has already been 2 years and a month. I just cleared everything with Customs and have been sent to TSU and would rather not spend almost an entire year at FLETC if the USMS call while I'm there for Customs.
