      Just wanted to say thanks for the help guys and good luck. May all of you get the call you are waiting for!
      Hey man, don't spend much time worrying about it. I failed mine too, and have stopped trying to guess why. When I go to Dulles to pick up family, I chat with the officers there and they're surprised when they hear I failed. It could be operator error from the evaluator, or a sign that maybe you are not meant to be cbpo. You can always try again though, so good luck.

The tourists and non-locals have driven up the costs of the area's real estate, et. al. It's quite rural, If you or your family are urbanites you'll find it a challenge. The nearest city of any size is Calgary, AB...and that's a good 4 hours away in the best of circumstances.
          I imagine the nearest school is in Eureka. The nearest US towns of decent size are Whitefish and Kalispell, roughly an hour south of the port. Kalispell is pretty good size as far as MT towns go, and they have 'national' stores and business, like Walmart and McDonalds. The port is roughly 25 officers in size...so it's a cozy family sort of setting.

          I'm guessing the port there would allow you to burn AL and drive to FLETC. It's quite the trek though. I hope your vehicle is up to the task, especially on the trip back...basically in mid-winter.

          If I were you, I'd phone the port, explain your situation, and hit up somebody local with your questions. Last I was there, they were a good bunch of guys. I'm pretty sure somebody there would take the time to give you the basics of the area.
          Thank you for the info Merlin. Much appreciated ... I will be calling them this week sometime.

              • Hey everyone,
                I just got the call. I took Chicago since I am from Chicago, and it was what I originally had applied for.
                Very excited right now. Thanks to everyone for the info and the support throughout the entire process.

                • Wonder if its one class or multiple classes that are being held in September ?

                  • It'll be interesting to see how many EOD's happen before 10/01.
                    Those people they bring on-board on 09/30 or before count as FY13 hires budget-wise, regardless of when they attend FLETC.

                    It is entirely possible that we might see a bunch of people hired and EODed in the next few months and then left in extended pre-academy for weeks/months until academy dates open up. It's happened before, and not all that long ago.

                        I think so since Scorpion and pointman dates of Fletc are different, 9/12/13 and 9/16/13

                          My apologies. FLETC actually starts on 9/13/13, not 9/12/13.

                              • Hey guys, congrats to everybody that is getting the call, we all hope to get there some day!

                                Just out of curiosity, what happens when a new hire leaves the academy for an other job, like CBPO to BPA or vise versa, or for a completely different agency? What is CBP's policy on that sort of thing, does the ex-employee owe anything to the agency? I came upon those question in a discussion with some friends and didn't know for sure.

                                Sorry to deviate from the current topic. Any info would be appreciated.

                                Thanks.
