B1 Visa Changing the port of entry after getting B1 Visa

Dear members,

I applied for a b1/b2 visa for step2 cs exam in march and got a 10yr multiple entry....i mentioned my port of entry as Houston. However, I got accepted for a obsie in Ohio now. would this be a problem if my POE is Chicago and then to Houston since I didn't mention this in my Visa interview.....

That wouldn't be a problem at all.

You have to notify them if you change the "PORT OF ENTRY" for example going to America by ship or crossing the border by car from Canada or Mexico.
