Port offers are based on their needs, not yours.

Anchorage, Calexico, Otay Mesa, San Ysidro, San Francisco, Oroville, Pembina, Portal, Sweetgrass, Douglas, San Luis. Those were the ones she said were critical needs areas.
Also, Boston, Chicago, Long Beach, Miami, Honolulu, Seattle, Nogales.

I was given 24 hours to choose and accept. I called the next day and the first training time slot offered was already filled.

Training slots were starting in March, April, and two in July.

I accepted the day they called me since I was given the option of Detroit which was somewhat close to home and didn't want to pass that up. I honestly zoned out because I was offered so many locations, mostly out west. Once I heard Detroit or Chicago.... I was for sure I would choose one of those.

I am a 19-1 applicant and applied July 1. I have passed my drug test and am sitting at 73 percent just waiting for “the call”. How long does it normally take to be called once on the wait list, I have been on the wait list since the 1st of December? Also what are the physical fitness requirements at Fletc?

I was not offered anything east though I would have probably accepted an eastern position. I do know someone on here did get NJ.

I believe it took about a month or just over a month to get the call. It just all depends on how many are ahead of you. I do not believe there is a physical fitness requirement at FLETC. Ags do not have to meet a physical fitness requirement. From my understanding its basic self defense training that we do at FLETC. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.
