    Good luck getting Atlanta. If you finish the process, and they offer you DC, don't take it. Tell them you want/need Atlanta.

        For starters the same houses in say suburban Birmingham that go for 150k, go for 450k to start. It's very expensive in DC. You'll never live the same life style you would in Atlanta with a 100k as you would in DC with a 100k job. Shoot, bus drivers and train operators can make around 100k in DC.

            If I were a betting man, the bulk (majority) of hiring will be for NY/NJ/ and DC.

                I did the civilian announcement, and completed the interview portion. For you where is your blue star? Is it over "Met Requirements"

I doubt it's not a huge difference but I wouldn't have thought the pay would be the same between ATL and DC. I think I may have listed DC first when selecting the locations to apply for without taking cost of living into consideration. If for instance they were to select me for DC, would I be able to request another location instead?

                        Locality pay does not come close. Locality pay does not take into consideration the difference in housing cost. You can try and request a different location, but they likely will not care. If they think they can force you into a less desirable location they will. They did it to me. If you are in a position where you can stomach the risk for the huge reward, turn down the job if they offer you NYC or DC, and tell them you will only accept ATL. I have friends that have been in for almost a decade that are still trying to get to ATL, with no hope in sight.

                            Signed a non-disclosure so you probably won't get any insight into how the interviews went. But in terms of day I can say I did two interviews, fingerprints were collected, and performed the physical assessment.
