    Toured some new sub divisions, let the kids play at a little kiddie gym, had some lunch, checked out the station, toured a few near by towns like Sommerton, Az and San Luis, Az (port of entry)...

    A little bit of culture shock even for those of us from San Diego.

    This is going to be interesting. We found out we had some friends who moved out there a few years ago so thats a nice surprise. Met a younger gal at one of the sub division models who is also a transplant and gave us some good info on the town.

    This is gonna be an adventure ha ha.
    You'll have to give me some details when we meet. I'm not familiar with the area, all my knowledge comes from online research. Coming from Michigan, this is going to be a huge change.

      I have no clue i just started checking my CASS after my BI interview was done. My backround interview was done 7/22 just hoping the phone will ring anyday now with the good news

      • Anyone know when they will accept GS-4 applicants? I have my Associate degree, but at the moment they're only accepting GS-5(Bachelors degree) and up.

        I also have completed STC core corrections academy and Module level 3 LE academy. Currently in level 2. Not sure if this is considered experience. It's the academy to be a Police officer in the state of CA.

        • hey kimo,

          i believe you can still apply with your associates under G5 if you got a combination of education and experience. are you still attending school? if not, i believe that is only way you can apply,unless if you have 3 years of exp according to the announcement. hope this helped you somewhat.

            Never.

            A year working at Burger King is all you need. With an associates, all you need is 6 months of full time experience. It ain't rocket surgery...

            • Random question for anyone that's taken the pft2. Just out of curiosity do you run the 220 yard dash and then the 1.5 mile or the other way around? Thanks in advance.

                I just completed the pft2 last week. I can't say for certain your expereince will be the same but we did the 220 first, then sit ups, push ups and last was the 1.5 mile. We were given five minutes rest between each test. Good luck!

                  Thanks for the fast reply. Sadly, the last couple of interviews would not work with my school schedule.

                  I will keep trying to get employed.

                    I was accepted at the GS5 level with an Associates and a year of LEO experience.

                    I hope they call soon. IA said that my paperwork is up to date and in order, my file is in the security office being reviewed for clearance...still! lol

                    Best of luck to everyone starting academy this month!

She said everyone she has talked to says its almost just like being in Mexico.. It's going to be quite different for all of us. But hopefully this will open other doors for us in the future. Everyone has to start out somewhere I guess..
                        You will be in my Academy class that starts on the 31st. Right? After I fly to Laredo I have Orientation in El Paso, for a day or so.. Fun fun! Lol
                        My class starts on 08/29. I will be in El Paso on 08/24-08/25.

                        Absolutely man. Im not complaining by any stretch. Its what you make of it. The family and I decided that we dont love it...we dont hate it...we will make it work. We have friends out there. We have fellow agents to lean on...it will work out man. Just gotta keep on keepin on.

                            Ok thats cool, ya I arrive in Laredo the 25, then El Paso the 28th (I think) & then I believe my Academy actually starts 9/1. I guess they have quite a few classes going in around the same time.

                            LastSamuri, How is your Spanish? I'm thinking of getting Rosetta Stone or look around online, just to help familiarize myself more..
