    Not too familiar with CT. But I would assume there aren't many or large enough POE to warrant hiring.

    • I noticed that the newest announcement closed early. So I guess that means 10k+ applied. According to the link on the DHS intranet they are looking to hire 2k FY 15. That's promising but still a lot of applicants for only 2k positions.

        There were over 10k+ on the announcement that opened in May and another 12k+ on the one that just closed. I have heard although haven't seen it in writing yet that they are planning on a total if 4k Officers by end of FU 2015. So I would imagine that score and region are really going to play a big part this go around.

              i chose alexandria bay. I wasn't offered any New York at first. Just Maine and Vermont. I asked for buffalo was told no and got offered Champlain and Alex bay. Champlain is to far from my home so I chose Alex bay. Look it up it looks awesome.

                • Does anyone know if you get any time off after the academy to relocate? I'm sure a lot of us would be moving far from where we live and will have houses to sell. The academy will probably be extremely stressful being that some of us will be away from our spouse and kids and trying to get things done while half way across the country. It will all be worth it in the long run.

                    Plattsburg is near Champlain, and from what another member member said, there are two colleges around the area. So if you're young and want to hang around people your age, then Champlain would be ideal.

                    I've seen pictures of Alex Bay, and yeah, I see some dilapidated looking castles/mansions, I'm not sure how life is over there. Seems very quiet.

                    Also, for the POEs in the NE, are their any inside an airport?

                      The announcement said, "Scheduling will begin August 28, 2014." That may be when they will send out emails.

                      • I notice alot of talk about the location people chose. When I applied I just selected the Southwest. When do you get to choose which location you'd like?

                            When they offer you a job. Believe you get 3 choices but I could be wrong.

                              It seems they offer whatever they have available. Could be 1 choice, 3 or 12...

                                Do they give you time to think about it?? or do you have to pick a location right away??
