    Wow, a couple of us sitting in the same boat. I finished my medical and urinalysis as well. Does anyone know when the next hiring panel will be? I'll be happy to know that I made the pool! Got my raft ready for the long wait and I've got room for anyone else that wants to help paddle.

        Congrats, Dan, I remember that feeling. Just keep being patient, word on the street is that NCIS will only have 2 classes for FY 2010, with the first possibly no earlier than Feb10.

        Good luck!

          Just received my letter as well! What a feeling! How big are the classes usually and how full is the pool right now?

            Repost from the other NCIS thread...

            Random question: Does anyone know about getting active duty orders to NCIS on the Washington Navy Yard? I know they have Watch Officers manned up in MTAC. What ranks/designators do they take?

                I am guessing these notices are in the mail?

                  Classes are usually 24. Can't speak to how large the pool is by a specific number, but I'd imagine it's fairly large due to the last class of FY 2009 being cancelled.

                      Only people at NCISHQ can answer that. What language(s) you speak, and how much they are needed could play in your favor, though.

                        I have heard the same thing regarding the classes - 2 classes for FY10. I am a bit disappointed. I heard that they are only taking people with "special skills." I don't speak a language fluently and don't have any computer skills to speak of, so I guess I am going to wait another year. I got my Pool letter June 2009. I hope I don't time out of the process before they have the money for more classes!

                          I wouldn't give up yet. NCIS seems to hire agents with a wide range of training and experience. I've met agents that seemed over qualified and agents that seemed under qualified . Knowing another language is a great skill, but being bilingual doesn't guarantee a person would be a good agent. If you made it to the pool, you have just as much chance as anyone else in the pool.
                          If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.

                            If it's any consolation, I barely speak English (being from the deep south), much less a second, third or multiple languages, so ya'll keep your hopes up!

                              Received email indicating formal screening board with me. Does anyone know what exactly this is?

                                It is what it sounds like, a formal (i.e. wear a suit) panel of agents who will interview you for an agent position. Expect tough questions about why you want to work for this agency, understanding our worldwide needs, and the mission. It can last several hours, so prepare your day accordingly. This is the largest screening tool in the application process (unless you fail the background investigation), so no pressure.

                                If this is a job you want, bring your "A game." Good luck.
