    • Where are the medical exams/PFT1 normally held at? A location near your home residence?

      Are applicants allowed to change their interview locations before an interview is scheduled?

          Whew!.. I only scored a 73- and that was with me changing a whole bunch of answers in the ALT portion with the little time I had left before the clock ran out- oh well, I'll take it.

          Much like the CBPO test, I thought I flubbed it, but somehow passed both??!

                • It's been a long week! I've got to get my e-quip and fingerprints mailed out by Saturday! I have not had anytime to get it done because my wife just gave birth to my third child early Monday morning! Guess I should be working on it instead of being on here.

                  In response to the conversation about the former BPA re-applying after getting into some trouble! I've been a cop for 8 years and I've seen a lot of cops get fired. Every single one lost his job due to alcohol, women or a combination of both! The ironic thing is when I first began a career in LE one of my sergeant's told me that nothing would end my career quicker than "badge bunnies" and booze! I took his advice and stay away from BOTH! Keep that in mind you young guys just starting out!

                  • I got my NOR today, got a 104 with 10 vet points. Better than I expected.

                    Im worried about the hearing test that will come after the TO because I have tinnitus in my left ear. Last audiology test I took for the DOE I had a 65dB loss at 3000Hz. On Honor First and OPM sites it says they only test for 500, 1k, and 2kHz. Its thats true I will pass ok, but CBP site says they also test at 3000Hz and you cant have over 40dB loss.

                    Anyone who took the hearing test have any advice?

                    • Quick question, sorry if it's been discussed. Once I start the e-quip I can pause, log out then log back in and continue, correct? Or does it have to be completed in one setting? I just do not want to screw it up!

                        The e-qip does save information and let's you complete the process by logging in at different times. That's exactly what I did. Good luck!

                              • Any military on this thread?
                                My application is complete and I'm trying to find out how long it takes to get a starting date from the date of discharge from the military.

                                I still can't believe it's been over 2 years since I took the written test, but CBP definitely helped me through a stop-loss deployment to Iraq. Not many agencies would do that.
