Has anyone found any truth to this, this is my first time hearing this...?
    I don't see any way that you could be reimbursed for the PFT2, as you are not employed by the agency at the time of the test. As for transportation from the Academy to your duty station, when you get to your duty station from the academy, you will fill out a final travel voucher where they will reimburse you for POV mileage from the academy to your duty station. If I remember right it was several hundred dollars, but I went to the academy in Charleston, so the mileage was substantially more than it is now with the academy being in NM.

      No, but the announcement just closed.

        You are reposnsible for all travel to your first duty station, to include the hotel stay for 2 to 3 nights before you EOD. Once you EOD/ get on the plane you start getting paid. The only reimbursement you may get is for baggage fees associated with the flight to Artesia, other than that it's all on you.

        • Stupid question but was all tests that were originally scheduled to be held in 2011 canceled? I was scheduled to take the BP test later in this month and have heard nothing from them other then receiving the Admission Notice a few months ago.

            If you haven't heard anything, assume it is still on. I imagine they would tell you if it were cancelled. I never heard anything about my test after the admission notice, I don't really see why you would hear anything. Call the OPM testing number on your admission notice a few days before the test if you are that worried, they can tell you if it is on or not.

              • I was scheduled to take the exam in April and I just got a email saying that they reschedued my exam date to March. Is this normal? Can they automatically change your exam date?

                • I got my NOR in mind October. Just now my CASS updated to show I am qualified for GS-5. I guess the next step will be the oral board because the medical looks like its frozen due to funding issues?

                    • Question for anyone: I heard that the Minnesota boarder is a hard to fill position and that if I applied with the intent of going there, I wouldn't be sent to the SW but assigned there right away. Any truth to that? Also, do you guys get LEAP?

                      • Oh, and don't bite my head off, I've only STARTED to gather info on BP.

                          First of all its Minnesota border. Northern border positions are not being filled right now, Southern border is the priority. You will be sent to the SB for x amount of years until you can get a transfer up to the NB, which is very unlikely right now. There is no truth to your statement. BPA's get AUO not LEAP. Read up on the BPA pages on this forum as well as HonorFirst.

                                I received a reminder about two days before the test. It was emailed.
