I had already told myself that if I was going to be forced to leave San Diego for both positions that I would end up taking BP. If they would have offered anything in California, I would've loved to have stayed and I would have gone with CBP. But hey, at least by declining CBPO, I left a spot open for one of you I wish everyone here the best of luck, you guys have been my anchor and moral support, without this forum I would have gone insane a long time ago lol.
    That's great! I would have done the exact same thing.

                User I can tell you that Fal. has some pretty good opportunities. It was the last station I was assigned to when I resigned. Yes, it is a checkpoint, but they do field work and roadway interdiction too. It's a nice little town and you're not too far away from Kingsville and Corpus Christi (though both of those are a little far to drive each day). RGC being right on the border also has some good work being right on the Rio Grande. Originally I was stationed just down river at McAllen, which is a nice town...especially for a border town. We only worked up the river to La Joya. It starts getting more desert in that area (lots of cactus and mesquite). Both are good choices though. Good luck!!!

                • Laredo is a large city (compared to other border towns/cities), and you will most likely find out that most CBPO officers live within the city. Like any city, there are some nice areas, and there are some areas to avoid. If you are use to being in the city, Laredo is one of the better choices along the border. I consider El Paso, McAllen, and Brownsville good choices when it comes to living conditions along the Texas border. Good luck.

                    • Well looking at the similar timelines for those of you who have been getting "the call" here within the past few days I can only hope I'll be getting a call here soon myself. Again congrats to all of you who have received the offers, and the best of luck.

                            As Far as I have looked by people saying on this forum as well as at the delphi one, it is by TSU cert date, so the date that says you entered TSU. After that its by TSL date. For instance, ncls and I entered tsu on the same date, but whichever one of us has an earlier TSL date should theoretically get a call first.

                                Its by the date you were referred on a certificate not the date you were put in TSU.
