  • yeah, i had a feeling they would extend it again and add on other regions, so many people applying or switching to the swb, if i were you i probably wouldnt change it at this point.
    but so many people applied it's kind of hard to believe they would need to extend it twice, i guess with all these people failing polys, pfts, and interviews it seems as if its more 1 in 20 than 1 in 10 lol.
    but like i said before, a lot of applicants apply out of state and end up not being able to take the positions because they can't afford the move...so make sure you have thousands saved up people

    i relocated for my current dhs job, and let me tell you it is a costly and gambling investment, i easily spent at least $4500, not including a downpayment for my place...lol and thats something you need up front, one of my friends that lives near my other house in AZ ran into that dilemma...waited 4 years, didn't have the money to relocate. he reapplied and got in within a year though

      the only reason i was wanting to change to swb is because i already had everything green in cass at the end of last year. I couldn't take the position at the time due to unforseen family circumstances...everything is good now though and am ready again. The first thing i took was my medical on July 19, 2011. I know it is good for a year. Thats why i am hoping for a tsl soon. I understand what you are saying about moving though. I know patience is a virtue. Trying to keep it...lol

I was thinking of switching to SWB but am trying to hold out as long as I can.
              Hey same situation I am in except for Northwest/Northern Border Region (see my signature). I am also seriously considering switching to SWB, but I am hoping to get picked up in my current GEO soon.. its a crapshoot though

                  I will stick it out with my southeast pick as long as i can. I currently live in Nashville so if i was given an offer of Atlanta it would only take me 4 hours to drive there. My wife doesn't want to go to the swb. I also look at it as that so many people switch to swb it shrinks the applicant list for our geo prefs.

                    Guess I can call tuesday and ask if they are sending TSL's for Southeast and make sure they got my docs. I doubt they would care about being all green previously in cass but maybe i will get lucky.

                      Graduation isn't always on Thurday's or Friday's, it can be any weekday. But you go to Charleston the next day and start class. That depends if you have enough people to make a class. If not, you'll report to Charleston and wait for enough people to graduate from Glynco and make a class.

                            Years back, it used to be that the badge/creds came with the graduation ceremony and the gun was shipped to your port to be picked up there.
