    That is not true, in fact your preference has little to do with the process. A lot of people who had California as a preference were offered Arizona.

      Congrats on getting the call. I'm hoping that, if all goes well with the rest of the process, I get the call before winter. I'll have to sell my house and it's a whole lot easier to do that during any season other than winter, especially in Buffalo.

      My preference was Cali but I'll take anything they offer.

        • I know everyone's timeline is different but how long does the "average" background invest/adjudication take? Is it safe to say 3-4 months?

          I am in a difficult situation; I do not know if I should register for fall classes. I have completed all steps of the hiring process with the exception of the background investigation. I submitted my e-QIP back in May and I am still waiting for a background investigator to contact me. I am worried that if I start classes, I will be half way through the semester and get an EOD date. But on the other hand, I don't want to sit around waiting for the call, that may not come until 2012, when I could be taking classes and doing something with my time.

            • I guess I should have mentioned that if I go back to school, I will be using my Post 9/11 GI Bill. If I drop out during the middle of the semester to take a job with the Border Patrol, I will have to pay the VA back. That is what I am worried about.

                  • Hey guys first time posting on here decided I should share my info too.
                    Took the test in Oct 2010. On CASS the only thing I have pending is my background which I met my BI two months ago, an I took my medical an pft1 three months ago an all went well. Also have my drug test not complete.

                    Just want to add that I was behind a buddy who took the test about two or three months before me. He was was ahead of me in the steps until I got a call to meet my BI which he has yet to receive.
                    My brother took his test about two months after us an he already has his interview an did his medical already but has not turned in his eqip. So its really hard to determine what will happen next by comparing others steps with yours

                        • Hey Zkostrze! I see your from Buffalo, I am too!! I tested in October 2010 and I choose California for my preference. I completed everything beside the physical fitness 2 and the drug test. I'm waiting for my background investigation to go through. The investigator said it should take about 6 month for it to go through, which is fine b/c I have to let my eyes heal, due to having Lasik surgery. How far are you in the process?
