    On another note, can you have a gopro on your head to record things yourself???

      The training is meant to be a military type of environment. That means, definitely no cell phones and definitely no gopros. I'm not sure if there's a rule for watches, but if there is, I wouldn't doubt that it's the same as the military's rule for wearing them. The rule is, they're okay to wear, as long as they're black in color and made of rubber or velcro (nothing fancy). Though, you'll sweat during training. So, rubber is probably better, than velcro. You shouldn't want to wear anything fancy/expensive during training, anyway for obvious reasons. Those cheap Casio digital watches are perfect. They're not only black in color, but they're thin and very lightweight. They cost about $12.

Does anyone in terms of region, if you put down a specific region, but you may want to change.. is making a chance possible? For example, I am east coast region, but since I applied to the job some things have changed, and I want to put in to potentially be in NC which is the south east. Is that possible? I am about to take my polygraph examination (thats what step I am on in the process). Thank you.
        In order to change your location you have to reapply when there's another open announcement. but everything you have done that hasn't expired (medical, drug test, pft1, exam, etc.) transfers over when you reapply. so you're not completely starting over.

                    Congrats, Your drug test shouldn't take more than couple of days. I took mine October 2nd, and was cleared October 6th, I took a photo of my CASS for a memory coz it was all gone the following week and was replaced with an EOD date only.
                    Do you know when your pft2 yet?

                        the written exam is good for a year i believe. i know my gf took the written exam earlier this year but she had applied for North East GEO. when it opened again for South East she reapplied and her PFT1, medical, and VBT transferred over.
