I wouldn't count on it, I imagine everyone is on vacation, maybe a few days after new years, I was looking at the FAA placement list for December 2017 and there were a few prior experience spots being taken not sure if it was from our bid or the previous one though.

Not that I’ve seen. Just knock it a couple years at the undesirable place and ERR to a place you’d like. Hope that facility will let you go though.
That's one of the reasons I left the agency in the first place. A release date 2 years into the future, no big deal. But then I was told based on staffing at my facility, they could reevaluate at any time and reset the two years.

Got my list today, just over a week after my medical appointment. My prior experience (none of them are particularly busy facilities):
5 years RAPCON (two facilities)
4 years CTO (two facilities)
one year contract tower

All of my options are up-down facilities. If anyone has any insight into these places, would be awesome if you'd PM me, cause I've never been to any of them, lol

BUF - Level 7
CLE - 8
CRP - 9
DSM - 7
IND - 8
LIT - 8
MDT - 7
MKE - 8
MOB - 8
SAV - 8
SBN - 7
TUL - 8

 
My rep said they're still waiting on my medical clearance (appt was Dec 11 and maybe 3 days later I had to send in a Lasik check up). So I guess I'll just sit here and watch everyone else get offered the facility I want but probably won't get due to no radar qual.
