      Exactly. The whole thing takes 1.5 to 2 years, so it's not like we will be at fletc in 6 months. We might finish the process in 6 months, but end up waiting for the next year or longer for a class date.

      • So I tested on 8/31 in Sacramento; today I received an email stating "This is to acknowledge the receipt of the Occupational Questionnaire you submitted."

        Anyone else get this today, or in the past? Just curious... I was really hoping that it was my test results. Oh well.

        Good luck everyone!
        I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

        • Over at Honor First, theres a speadsheet that shows how long people have been waiting for the call. Some have been over 2 years.

            Cripes. I guess I'll just keep plugging away at my MPA in the meanwhile.

              I don't think it's gonna take that long this time. They are planning to deploy additional agents immediately, acc to what I read.

                I figured they would have at least 200 on a waiting list, but if they have a thousand, there is no way in heck us with recent TOs will get a chance.

                I'll just do what I normally do. Stand by and wait. It'll give me more time to finish my first 90 days of P90X too.

                    That's actually a good idea. If for whatever reason border patrol doesn't work out, you will have an advanced degree to take you further.

                    We will have just as good a chance as anyone else. Just don't expect it to be a quick process. Just be happy you didn't miss this opportunity. A couple of years from now, when we are approaching the end of the process, there will be a bunch of people wishing they had applied back in 2010

                      I got that email, then my NOR email about an hour later. I tested on 8/31 as well so it shouldn't be too much longer for you to find out your results.

                        Ah damn, but I would have been able to qualify for the GL-9 level with my MPA. Argh!!!

                        Here's to hoping and keeping hope alive. Economy is DEAD out there.

                        Seriously man, TK, you are my hero. I went back a few threads and found your weight loss one. Good stuff.

                          • It's not as bad as I thought it would be. Any proof to the rumor BP is looking to hire 2000 (instead of 1000) new agents? Wish everyone the best who are on the list, and who will be testing soon. I have my written tomorrow in Avondale, Az.

                              Its a time table of how long it takes between getting your TO and TSU. The ones at the bottom that have received the quick offers have already been through the process and are using past clearances.

                                I kind of doubt the rumor is true. It's a matter of funding. 1000 new agents were calculated with the money granted by congress. Another 600 million just isn't going to show up out of no where.
