  • It took me 10 days from when my BI cleared to when I entered TSU. Usually your BI won't clear if they intend on giving you a Polygraph, because it because apart of the BI.

    • I missed the test date. When will they give out applications again?

      • Going to be a while, there are people who have taken the test and who are still waiting on Tentative Selection letter You probably need to check CBP.gov often.

        I would guess this summer there maybe another opening.

        • I took the test November 18th in NYC- received my scores back within a few weeks as a 91 with no veterans preference points. Anyone have any idea of how long it will be before I hear anything back? I know they have trouble recruiting athletic females, so I didn't know if that might expedite my process at all. Any information would be appreciated! - Thanks Guys!

            Unfortunately for you I have yet to see where being a female will expedite the hiring process for CBP. I have seen announcements open to females only, however I believe you applied to a general announcement open to both males and females.

            At this point, things are going to continue to be at somewhat of a stand still until we're into the new calendar year. A 91 is a good score, you will be placed in line in order of score with all of the other applicants waiting for a TSL.

            Best of luck.

              • No calls for anyone huh? I've been in TSU since oct 26 I hope some one gets the call soon so we can keep the hope torch lite. I'm guessing it's the holidays slowing things down. Any thoughts?

                • I took the written test in Nov and got my score back. One of the guys in my Reserve Unit is a 1801 with the FDA and said I shouldn't count on hearing anything from anyone until Jan or after. Of course, that's nothing more than anecdotal. With the budget being signed recently, I;m pretty optimistic.

                  • Ususally calls for a new class start on Thursday but with the Holidays who knows. They appear to be done with class 1000 and should start calling for class 1001 any day. I don't know what your timeline is but that determines if you may get called. They are calling those with TSL from July, August, and September. Maybe today will be the day.

                    • Very cool. Just found out this morning that I qualify for a 10 point vet preference instead of 5. Hopefully, I can get that added in to my score.

                        • Ahh ok I tested sept 3rd 2010 so if that's accurate I'm just out of reach. Well I can't complain I've waited a long Time a few more mOnths won't hurt. Thank you for the info.

                            • Thank you, I appreciate it! I feel like I’m waiting to get accepted to my top choice of college again. The suspense is exciting, every day I check the mail like a kid at Christmas. A few of my friends did the Customs exam, and they both got offers within a month and they only received scores in the high 70’s. So I was getting nervous I haven't heard anything back yet. I see you've taken the CBPO and BP Exams with high marks, do you have a preference?

                                If your friends applied for a Southwest border CBPO location, that explains it. CBP has spent the last 6 months really focusing on hiring CBPOs for the SWB and I think as a result border patrol applicants have been put on the back-burner for the most part. Unfortunately, for CBPO I am hoping to get an initial offer for a port in the Northeast region and since I don't think a single TO has gone out for Northeast region for any Dec. 2010 testers, I am probably out of luck for CBPO.

                                For BPA, I chose AZ as my geo. preference. At this point, I feel like it's pointless to change my geo. preference for CBPO to the SWB so I will see what happens there, otherwise I would certainly take a BPA spot in AZ someday. I'm currently a federal employee and while I'm not doing anything even remotely close to law enforcement, I love my job and my GS-9 pay.

                                Good luck, be patient, and most importantly, keep working out, an initial offer can come out of nowhere and you want to make sure you're prepared to pass that PFT1.
