  • Looking for some info from current CBPO's, if there are any on this forum or anyone that might have some knowledge on this.

    I EOD on 12/19 to Nogales but don't start at FLETC until 2/6. They told me that I will be in Nogales for that entire time shadowing and filling out paperwork. My questions are:

    1. Will I be allowed to drive my own vehicle to my EOD, and then from there to FLETC? (I'd hate to be stuck in a town I don't know with no vehicle for over a month)
    2. Will they provide me with info on where I can stay during that time? (I understand the cost is on me but I'm wondering how expensive it's going to be to find somewhere to live for the month)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

              Second, is anyone here going to/ currently stationed in Nogales? My housing situation for the "job shadowing" is stressing me out.
              If 3 people test with you it will take less than 1 hr. If 23 people test with you expect closer to 4 hrs.

                    1. No one will care if you drive your own vehicle to AZ. You'll be paying for it all, so you can do as you please. As far as driving from Nogales to FLETC, you might run into problems there. Nogales might not give you enough time between your last workday in pre-academy and your report date to FLETC to allow you the time to travel the 2700 miles or so between the two. They may 'insist' you fly.

                    2. Maybe. See if there is a contact number for the port, call and ask. Somebody there ought to be able to give you some idea of what to expect.

                      It seems like driving might be the best option. I'm on LI too and it's not really a bad drive. Good luck and I'll see you there.

                          I also EOD in AZ and wanted to bring my personal car, but the whole one day off between pre-academy to academy ruined that idea. I went to Orbitz.com, clicked hotel+car and found some "good" deals even though it's going to cost me well over a G. The trick will be how to get my personal car to FLETC.

                            • Conditional Offer Accepted

                              Thank you so much for the advice. Declining the offer to take Columbus was difficult, but I had no choice; fortunately, the agent worked with me and offered Santa Teresa, which is a 2 hr. communte there and back. I'm so happy!!!!!!!!!!! My EOD date is 12/19. Has anyone been offer this POE?

                              As to the academy, what can I really expect? My husband has confidence in my ability, but is concerned about being injured. I'm in physical shape, but anything is possible. Also, what is the ratio of women to men? I'm aware I'd be outnumbered, but I'm curious.
