    Best of luck to you in the process whatever you decide and Happy Holidays.
    I know I'd be required to go to the SWB for BP, why not leave my NE region geo preference for CBPO on the chance I'll eventually get an offer for a Northeast port. Then I won't have to wait 5-10 years to get a swap approved back North and besides, I figure why put all my eggs in the SWB basket. Just keeping my options open and keeping my NE geo for CBPO is a risk I'm willing to take.

      Good line of thinking. If you're hired by the Border Patrol, you can always put in work on the SWB and by the time a spot for a CBPO position opens in the northeast in 2014, you can transfer over as a GS 7 step 10 (or equivalent).

            • They haven't hired people for LB for quite some time. There's a dozen of us at preacademy at lax, another dozen of recent graduates and ones currently at FLETC. None of us were offered LB.

                Do me a favor, if you can ask your group if any of them would want to transfer to MIA in the upcoming 2-3 years. I would love to do a body swap if anyone there is interested. I'm sure it would take a couple of years minimum. I just want to see if there is any interest.

                        • OK, so question. If 180 is still waiting for a TO from the northeast, I might as well give in and change my preference to the SW border. My question is, when do you find out what port you are going to in the process? Obviously with a higher score than most, do I have any say in the matter?

                            When they call with the offer of employment they'll give you a list of ports/FOs to choose from. I can't speak to how the rating applies to the hiring process though. With HSI, we were called to interview based on our rating, with CBP, where you are on the TSU list might be when the NOR/Rating comes into play.

                            • Has anyone gotten a letter in the mail lately updating you on the status of your tenative selection where they are confirming the grade (GS level) that you have qualified for? I qualified for GS-5 & 7 and it just seems weird that I got this letter.
