  • Hello everybody and congrats to all of you getting that awesome EOD call, my time line is very similar to those of you that applied back in jul of 2010. I too got a call a week ago but it was for the dreaded "POLY", i went in there as confident as could be telling nothing but the truth. Poly start time 9 am end time 5 pm, 8 hours of repeat and repeat and hearing things such as theres something your hiding. At the end of the day he said my results were inconclusive that i had supposid reactions to a few stupid questions. He then stated that he would call me back when he "had time" to retest. Any body have any input on this? A few people ive talked too say most likely i will never hear back from this guy...

          There are many reasons, some withdrew voluntarily while some were dq'ed from the process with the notion that they can reapply after 6 months (I believe). Yeah, looks like people applying now are in for a long wait.

                  Sorry to hear that. Did you ask them about waiting for a location in your geographic preference?

                        • Just got a call from my background investigator. He says that we have to meet again to make some corrections to my paperwork because of some changes that were made in the requirements of BI's...says he will make the changes and I just have to initial on the "X".

                          Back to the waiting game...

                            • this is the absolute worst station I couldve gotten a call for
                              Yuma is actually one of the better locations to be stationed in the Border Patrol. I think you might have a a skewed idea of what living conditions in the Border Patrol are.

                              There are anomolies, like San Diego and Tucson, but the majority of stations are in small, middle of nowhere, towns.

                              Here is a quick, but not complete, list of stations that are worse places to live:

                              Boulevard - SDC
                              El Centro - ELC
                              Calexico - ELC
                              Blythe - YUM
                              Ajo - TUC
                              Nogales - TUC (this is debatable, you could commute 45 minutes from green valley)
                              Sonoita - TUC (also a long commute from green valley)
                              Wilcox - TUC
                              Douglas - TUC
                              Deming - ELP
                              Lordsburg - ELP
                              Truth or Consequences - ELP
                              Almogordo - ELP
                              Sierra Blanca - MAR
                              Van Horn - MAR
                              Marfa - MAR
                              Alpine - MAR
                              Presidio - MAR
                              Big Bend - MAR
                              Sanderson - MAR
                              Compstock - DEL
                              Del Rio - Del
                              Bracketteville - DEL
                              Eagle Pass - DEL
                              Eagle Pass South - DEL
                              Carrizo Springs - DEL

                              I haven't even included Laredo and Rio Grand Valley sectors, but I think you get my point.



                              I stopped because I am tired of typing.

                              Clearly, it is your decision whether or not to accept a duty station, but be prepared to accept a station in a less then desireable place
