        Deferring is a dangerous option, especially if you want upstate NY. I would take what you can get... if you defer, they might call you 2 months later and only offer you some **** hole in Vermont like Beecher Falls, Norton, or Richford. Hours away from civilization, and you'll never get out of there.

          Do you foresee Boston being called anytime soon? I know they are understaffed I spoke with a few cbpos that work there. If I was called for both cbpo and BPA I think id take BPA if only smaller ports were offered

            True, but they will usually throw the "business days" in there. Plus most of our eligibility dates expire on either the 1st or the 3rd of August and according to MHC they have to send out the TSL by that date. So I would imagine we will be seeing an email(TSL) by Friday.

              Boston isn't a large port by any measure and smaller than many NE land ports. I wouldn't expect to see more than a handful of Boston hires.

                  That's awesome to hear man! I've been doing VLCs for the past two weeks haha. How many are in your group? It's eight of us here, 4 in the same class, but they definitely become part of your family as the days go by. The academy is going to be great!

                  Fun note. One of the guys left last week for the academy and he called us saying it's so hot and humid and that he couldn't finish the mile and a half because he wasn't acclimated yet. He's in pretty good shape (12:05 time) so that was surprising.

                        I received an email last week asking for more information regarding something from when I was like 4 years old. My Dr should have all the paperwork, that they sent, filled out for my by tomorrow plus he dictated me a letter saying I am perfectly healthy. I'm ready to get the documents submitted and hope it doesn't take another 4 months to clear my medical. Then I can finally start my background investigation.

                            I have no information in regards to hiring/staffing at Boston.

                            At the end of the day, its your decision on which position you take. Just realize if you take the Border Patrol route, you're stuck on the southwest border for years. It is way, way more difficult for BP Agents to transfer to the northern border compared to CBP Officers. That is why so many BP Agents are going blue.

                            You can always accept the Border Patrol gig and then reapply to the CBP Officer position in the future. You'd definitely gain a lot of experience that way. But if location is most important to you, and you want Boston...then I would concentrate on your northeast application for CBP Officer.

                              I have no information in regards to hiring/staffing for Pittsburgh. It is probably quite difficult to get, but not impossible seeing as CBP is hiring nationwide.
