    Thanks in advance. Patiently waiting for the call.
    My BI asked to meet with me in my house. He also required that everyone else was gone.

      You could suggest using your home as the meeting place. But it is really up to the investigator. They will conduct it where ever they are comfortable.

          I had my BI come to my house twice. Once while it was just him and I - and once while I had about 20 friends & family over for brunch. My BI brought his wife, we all mingled while he setup an interrogation room in the back room of my house and questioned everyone there. It worked quite well and saved a lot of time I'm sure.

          • I just made it to TSU on the 11th of June. I know it can be a long time to wait there. I am also in the process for the CHP. My CHP BI told me to get a job because the process can be a long one too. I completed backgrounds with the CHP. Meanwhile i am interviewing for a few other civilian jobs until I get the call.
            Thank you to all that serve.

            • yeahh this waiting game sucks really bad!!!!. I wish I would have stayed Active Duty. 62 day in TSU. Got like 25 more to go.... hopefully. I had the chance to deploy to Iraq back in November. I told them no becuase I just got done with the B.I. so i thougt i was like 3 or 4 month away from getting in. Well the batallion gets back in july. I could have made it in time

                  Think of the $$$ they could've saved in recruiting with that line...

                        Let me just point out that this job is freakin' awesome. Attitude as an intern is crucial, but once you have that dialed in, you realize how great you have it as a PA, regardless of how much time you have in.

                        I know I said I would write more about my experiences thus far but I haven't had the time. Anyways to those of you guys still waiting: It's worth it.

                            • I have just entered TSU and am awaiting the final call. One question about the Spanish course after the academy for anyone who's in the agency. Will I still have the opportunity to use the training facilities (i.e. range, gym) while only in the Spanish part of the academy? I'm assuming yes since it is probably an agency priority to keep one proficient with firearms and physical fitness, but still curious.

                                During Spanish you will only be learning Spanish and firesarms x2 during the span of time. If nothing else, you will be hitting the gym out of boredom.
