      Did you even read the job announcement?

      Mandatory Completion of Basic Training: Soon after entering on duty, Border Patrol Agent interns are detailed to the U.S. Border Patrol Academy in Artesia, New Mexico for approximately 11 weeks of intensive instruction in immigration and nationality laws, law enforcement and Border Patrol-specific operations, drivers training, physical techniques, firearms and other courses. Soon after arriving for the 11-week basic training, all students are tested in their language abilities. Those who score below an established benchmark are assigned to an additional 8-week Spanish class at the Border Patrol Academy which will extend their stay to 19 weeks, while the fluent Spanish speakers who successfully complete the 11-week program report back to their duty stations. Upon successful completion of the Academy training, all interns begin the Field Training Program (FTP) and the Post Academy Training Program (PATP) at their stations and sectors. The FTP will consist of on-the-job, hands-on training with an experienced agent. The PATP is a combination of web-based training and instructor led training and will require the intern to successfully pass seven unit exams. The intern’s progress through both programs and job performance is evaluated by review panels at 12 months and 20 months after entering on duty. If the intern’s progress remains satisfactory through the 24th month, s/he is no longer an intern and is converted to a permanent appointment. Failure to successfully complete the 24-month internship will result in termination of employment.

        Did they tell you that you were still in the expedited process. or do you they place you on the normal list.


        put me in the regular process it took them about 3 weeks to send me my tentative selection letter....unfortunatly they said i couldnt continue along in the process due to my past mj use about a year back. just sent in my appeal to that last thursday with 4 recomendation letters one being from a current dhs/cbp supervisor up at march air force base here in southern california along with sending them a drug test proving iv been away from that dumb **** i used to do. who knows what will happen now...just waiting. but i figured, better to try than to roll over and admit defeat. lol

              They usually give you the option to withdraw, since it looks better on paper if you decide to reapply than being found unsuitable for employment.

                no they never gave me that option


                they just said "you have passed the test for the position of border patrol agent and you have been tentatively selected for the position, however you have been deemed unsuitable for this position due to statements that were made in good faith when you applied. If you would like to appeal this decision you must submit in writing and provide supporting documentation by such and such date."

                and like i have been told by many law enforcement officers...."if you want the position you dont ever give up"

                so Im doing just that....if Im still found unsuitable after I sent in my appeal at least I am satisfied that I tried my hardest and at the end of the day I can still say that I was honest, kept my integrity and my moral character, and didnt roll over and give up; and thats satisfying enough for me....because ill just reapply when Im eligable to do so.

                I know exacly why I was sent that letter, because a year ago or so I was involved with some Scum and got wrapped up in Marijuana use, its not something Im proud of, but all I can do is keep my life in order and keep working my butt off......someday, no matter if its this year, or 5 years from now, I will be employed in a law enforcement job. This is what my mind is set on, and this is what I am going to do with my life.

                  Check to see if your on the CASS system. I'm sure that if they weren't gonna hire you then they wouldn't either set you up or they might just take you off.

                        PR is not an option as a trainee. You will be stationed along the SW border or one of a few stations along the northern border. After several years you may have an opportunity to transfer to PR.

                            well law enforcement was always a thought of mine but i never really knew what i wanted to do with my life....but i was screwin around with the wrong people and i took the step a year ago and got the heck away from all that and decided this is what im going to do with my life. hey if it takes me 3 years to get hired on......whatever.....ill keep trying till then. i know the mistakes iv made and have done everything to correct them and not go down those paths or be around those people.

                              Well, I've got 2 more days until I take the BP exam and I'm pretty excited! I'm just worried about the ALT. Good luck to anyone taking the exam on 3 June.
                              I make my living on Irish welfare.

                                It seems from what we hear; the ALT should be the same as it used to be, however, it appears that they are accepting lower scores as "passing". As long as you study the practice test booklet and you can read/write proper English, you should be fine. Good Luck my friend.
