      Indeed, but you would have to be a native speaker to pass it... and it's a 6 week spanish course.

            • Each place has a trade off. The crackhouses are centrally located to your classrooms and the chow hall. Once you reach a certain point in training, your classes are so spread throughout the academy, you're eventually going to have to rely on the buses anyway. The Taj rooms are one bedroom suites fitted with a fridge, tv, desk, sofa, coffee table, and your own bathroom. The one glaring negative about the Taj is having to rely on the not always reliable bus schedule (especially on weekends) to get to the chow hall. But then again, once you're here long enough, missing a meal isn't always a bad thing.

              Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't students at the crackhouses sharing a bathroom with their neighbor?

                Are you sure you want to see it??? From the sounds of things seeing it might put a damper on your current perspective........

                JK, congrats on your arrival frisco, a guy from my office got on with CBP a couple of years ago and currently works at SFO. Good luck at the academy!

                  • Does anyone know or is anyone familiar with N.O.-Xplode 2.0? I know it's fairly new, but the only reason why I ask is because I know the original N.O.-Xplode is good to go with urinalysis. The CG recently banned the use of JACK3D because you pop positive for methamphetamine or something like that. Is anyone aware of any "cautions" or know if N.O.-Xplode 2.0 has any ingredient that could cause you to fail a urinalysis? I only ask because I wanted to start using it again, but not if it's going to make me fail my drug test, lol.

                      • Anyone knows what happens if you miss your oral board? I been checking my status on the CASS and it say that my oral board has been schedule but I never got an email, a call or a letter. I got tired of waiting and call and email MHC last week they finally reply to my email Monday morning I they say that my appointment was for August 5th. I been trying to contact MHC but so far I been unsuccessful. Anyone knows if MHC usually reschedule the Oral Board VBI apointment in these cases?

                          If you keep trying you'll eventually get someone to help you... you might be able to reschedule it since you never received the first notice, you might also want to check the address on file with them.

                              • The 'crackhouses' are also located nearer to the G-bar.
                                Wobble back to 187 once or twice and you'll learn to appreciate that fact.

                                Back in the distance past, The 'crackhouses' used to be those townhouses across the pond from the chow hall. I think they're mostly admin. offices now.
