For anyone who is heading to Quantico soon - have you heard any rumors about FO placement in recent classes? I’ve heard the vast majority of IAs get placed at HQ, NYC, or LA and very few new IAs end up in a smaller FO. Just looking to confirm.

I have heard the same rumors that you have, and they're probably fairly accurate. If you think about it:

DC is headquarters, so it makes sense to have lots of analysts assisting in strategic analysis at that location.

NYC is the largest city and has a ton of crime (organized and terrorism) so that makes sense as well.

LA is the second largest city and is the largest field office outside of NY and DC. LA also has a lot of crime and is close to the busiest border crossing in the world (Tijuana/San Diego)

On top of all that, these aforementioned cities are all very expensive to live in, despite the high locality adjustment to pay. That would lead me to believe that many new analysts aren't volunteering for those field offices.

I'm fortunate to be starting at GS-09 so I could probably afford any location, but I can imagine it's very difficult for a new analyst in one of those places to be making GS-07 step 1 pay. That pretty much relegates you to a studio apartment if you're single.

I'm actually hoping for LA. While San Diego is my first choice (I'm originally from there), LA is my second since my Air National Guard unit is in LA and that would put me close to home as well.
