    Quick question on residency preference. On the 2017 CS test, can we pick 3 towns lists to be on?

    Pretty sure the only town you can claim residency is the town you currently live in, and you have to have lived there for a year prior.... I could be wrong though. I'm new here

    Believe you only get residency for the town in which you currently reside. A few loopholes for those on active duty. So you will be on your town's list, as well as state and MBTA should you pay the extra. But I'm far from a CS expert.

    You're talking about the old non-resident way of doing things. Unfortunately you can't pick the towns you wanna be non-res on anymore. So, if by some miracle a department exhausts the residents, you are competing with literally everyone else in the state on the non-resident list.

    You can only claim preference for the town you lived in for one year prior to the exam date.
