    I chose Brownsville, TX b/c it's right by the shore, it's a very busy port and cost of living is very affordable.

      Being by the shore was a factor that attracted me to there too as option doesn't seem like much but lived by water whole life

        Yeah, I hear that south Padre island is pretty nice. It's the island right next to Brownsville. I'm always reading of Brownsville being involved in some type of busts and also read that it's a pretty busy port too.

                      • Can we all talk for a moment about how ridiculous the standards are for the 2nd pft. 1.5miles in 17 minutes? Thats 11 minute mile pace thats absurd.

                          The 2nd pft does seem extremely hard. I have not taken the polygraph yet and I see that you got a chance to take it four times. Do you mind telling me how that was possible just in case I don't pass it on the first try?

                            Results are pass or fail... Only very few people get a re test and that would be a case of an inconclusive result. Not something you simply request.

                            • It isnt hard in the least im saying how insanely easy it is lol Most people go for two I found and I honestly have no idea how I was chosen to do 4 of them being that I was honest and didnt have anything in my background to exclude me. I just stuck with it and answered what they asked and eventually I was cleared thankfully. Definitely one of the worst experiences of my life though for sure.

                                I cant believe how easy the requirements seem to be. I thought they would be much harder.
