  • Took the test yesterday. A wee bit harder than i expected, even after looking at the study guides. Ran out of time on the last 5 questions on the ALT test, had to play roulette and pray.

    • I was scheduled to take the exam on the 12th but I don't think it's happening because of the FCIP executive order.

      • Did they send you an email saying your exam was canceled?

        • I think you're making a mountain out of a mole hill. If you're this anxious before the beginning of this long process....you're in for an even longer road ahead.

          Just relax and take things in stride, it's the only way.

          • I'm not anxious, I just don't know what to do. My exam is scheduled for next month. Should I change the date to April since the executive order is effective after march 1st? I dont know what to do.

            • Take the exam next month and that's it.

But I heard the ALT was easier. Thoughts?
                If you’re not completely fluent in Spanish, I would strongly recommend taking the ALT. The Spanish portion is formal and most of the time the difference between the right and wrong answer is a letter or two.

                • I just got this email from the hiring center:

                  After reviewing your record it indicates your medical has cleared. Due to the budget parts of the pre-employment processing were put on hold. You will be contacted in the future to complete other parts of the pre-employment processing.



                  If you have further questions or concerns you can contact us via email or phone.

                  Thank you for your interest in Customs and Border Protection.

                  • Well I emailed Border Patrol on what the end of FCIP mean to applicants with a conditional offer and this is the response I received:

                    "At this point we have no guidance from DHS or OPM on how the loss of FCIP will affect the Border Patrol Agent (BPA) hiring process.

                        • Anybody thinking about being an agent should apply asap, the announcement is going to expire on the 31st. Just a quick reminder for those reading the forum.

                          • Hey guys/gals. I am waiting on the USMS for a FLETC date and now with the whole FCIP in the toilet I may be out. So a question about CBP- I was told it was a short hiring process and that you only have to spend 2 years in the southwest. Any truth to that? I see some stuff about FCIP on here, do they use the same process?
                            Just a note: I will be waiting 2 years this may and I'm not getting any younger so I want to get into the Fed as soon as I can.
                            Thanks for any help.

                            • I got my notice of results on my exam today....got a 96. Im assuming this is on a 0-100 scale? Any idea of where in the potential rankings that would put me (average/above average?).
