  • While the job posting is still up (closes 12/31), can I change my answer regarding geographic availability/preference/duty station/whatever it's called without some sort of time penalty? I've only taken my entrance exam. I don't want to hurt my chances of getting in asap by doing so.

    First time I've heard that.

    • Just received my NOR for the Border Patrol entrance exam:

      "Spec Code: Spec Title: Grade: Rating:
      001 Border Patrol Agent 05 100
      001 Border Patrol Agent 07 I
      001 Border Patrol Agent 09 ID

      Rating Code: Rating Message:
      ID You do not meet the minimum education and/or experience requirements for this specialty and grade.
      I Your application does not demonstrate that you meet the minimum qualifications for this specialty and grade."



      Regarding the 'I' rating for '07', does this appear to be a fault on my part? Does this suggest that I didn't beef up my resume enough and could have possibly met the minimum? If that's the case, can I change that somehow and qualify? Also, the rating of 100 for '05', don't want to get my hopes up, but is that my entrance test score? I believe I did well, but not a 100. Or is it out of a higher maximum?

      Alright, no more questions... thanks.

        Congrats! Pretty sure that's your score. I know for GL7 it sounded like you already needed a LEO background.

            First time I've heard that.
            I took the ALT the first time I tested, and the Spanish test the second time. I passed both times, but I will say that if you don't know how to speak/write in Spanish, it is likely you will fail the Spanish test. A lot of it is sentence structure, format, and spelling.
            What is Perseverance?
            -Perseverance is commitment, hard work, patience, endurance.
            -Perseverance is being able to bear difficulties calmly and without complaint.
            -PERSEVERANCE IS TRYING AGAIN AND AGAIN.

                This is likely your rating based on your questionnaire from when you did you application, because the entrance test you take with the ALT or Spanish test and all the questions has nothing to do with your hiring grade.

                  Right, I didn't figure the test affected my grade. Thanks. I actually just got an email from MHC, and they're looking into it.

                  Side note, does anyone know what processes transfer from CBP to Border Patrol applications?

                        Np. How long did it take you to hear back if you pass the test? Took mine last week.
