    Yes, your going to want to be at the San Ysidro POE . I would think that would be a very popular POE to work at.

      yes but the chances of you getting directly hired there is almost impossible, like Nugg said, if you want to be in san diego choose san ysidro, as far as being popular, i heard different lol

        www.tucson.craigslist.org
        www.hotpads.com
        Both return a fair number of results in the Green Valley/Sahuarita area.
        True, until you pare them down by putting max rent of 850-900 (affordable on the starting salary) and you get only 2.

            • Also...i'm curious what the reasons are for avoiding Nogales as a living environment? High crime? Nothing to do when you're off? Easier to leave work at work by living north? I presently drive 31 miles each way as a commute and i'm not fond of it so a longer commute would suck, yet it seems inevitable based on the feedback i'm getting.

                this test is trying to fill the land borders, so your probably not going to get an airport or seaport, your best bet is san ysidro, then trying to swap or transfer out when the time comes, and even thats not guaranteed, plan on being there for 5 or more years, unless u get lucky

                • where is the best place to live if you get stationed in San Ysidro, CA? for family, school for kids etc... thanks

                  Comment


                  • It looks like there is another spot for SW. I received the Call today but my wife and kids do not want to move to that area.So guess what? Family first.

                    Looks like I' m going to roll the dize and hope to receive a new TO for SE that I re applied back in June. As the lady told me , if decline it will only be for SW and will not be out of race for SE as everything should transfer as soon as receiving a TO.
                    Not and easy decision but I'm not a young gun, & have to make decisions base on what is important for me.
                    At this point just stay in PR with CBP, relax and wait who knows???
                    By the way choices: El Paso, Presidio TX, Columbus & Santa Teresa NM. EOD 10/11

                        • &quot;Location Location Location!&quot;

                          I'm really curious as to if there is a common theme to the bulk of the SWB POE's being offered up. I mean, it seems as if there are quite a few calls going out as of late. I'm wondering if this group of calls are being offered POE's that have been passed up on for a while, or if there is a large spread across the board. Those of you that have received "The Call" in this fy 2011...what have you been offered? Has there been a few "choice" billets (not even certain what that would look like other than qeographical prefferances), or has the vast majority been in whole in the wall locations? Is there any theme to where this apparent rush of noobies arte being sent to?

                          Any solid logic is welcome to reply.
                          Thanks.

                          • I recently took my exam here in Livonia, MI. I also received a high school now depending on who else scored higher than you or I is when you will get your tentative selection letter via e-mail and/or regular mail. This could take any where from a couple months to I've heard years. Once you get your (TSL) things should start moving a little faster. Look on the CBPO website they have the steps for the application process.
