    Dumb question - I have my IE tomorrow. What does USPIS classify as "business casual"? I don't want to show up under / over dressed.
    There is no such thing as over dressed when you are meeting with a prospective employer. FWIW, here was my IE:

    Myself and another gentleman wore suits. Not a single thing was said.
    One person wore an outfit that was appropriate for the golf course. Yep he got an ear full.
    Another person took the casual concept really to heart. Jeans, untucked dress shirt with top 4 buttons undone, boat shoes with no socks. He too got an ear full, with a senior inspector inquiring why he left his socks at home.

    TL/DR, wear a suit to every single component. Business casual? Wear a suit. Dress comfortably? Wear a suit. You can always take a suit jacket or tie off. Hard to procure one when it's sitting in your closet at home.

      • Any other candidates in the waiting pool like me just waiting for the class date phone call? Has anyone emailed the PIR email for status update and gotten anything other than the generic template response?

          SuccessfulVibes Have you had your MI yet? I am still waiting on that invite. I am a December 2017 applicant. Passed the AC at the end of March of this year (2019).

      • Have any 1/19 applicants gotten an AC invite? I’ve npticed some IE’s over the past couple months but haven’t seen an AC mentioned on here since March from an ‘18 applicant.

          It's going to be awhile for the AC. Sit back, be patient and forget you applied.

        So I contacted them. They said I was taken out because. I didn’t meet drug policy. However I know I do because I’ve done it for several other departments and I use the same eqip which says I smoked in high school (nearly ten years ago) and their policy says 3 years for marijuana. So I’m guessing there is some sort of mistake in their records... unfortunate.

          What did the eqip ask? I know we were supposed to go back ten years but did the EQip ask marijuana use ever? This further proves my theory that they are looking at our EQips to weed out anyone even with the most minor issue on their app

      • How long after you get the fingerprint cards do you all get the notice for the Information Exchange? I tried reading past posts but would someone clarify the difference between the IE and AC and where they are held please? Thanks in advance!

          agent05 Getting the notice for the IE differs for everyone. I got my cards around March/April 2018 timeframe but didn't get the invite to the IE until September/October. My IE was mid Nov 2018.

          The IE is where you bring your completed fingerprint cards. You will take Exam 2 and the Business Writing test and you might watch a short video on the Inspection Service. If you have questions, make sure to ask them while you have the Inspectors right there. Dress like you are going to an interview.

          The AC is a 3 day event with the first day being the travel day and the next 2 days are the assessment center. The first day will consist of several activities and if you pass then you will move on to the next day. Somebody on here had a link to the old website that explained in somewhat greater detail of the AC. But I hope this helps.

      • Here's what I have as an updated list. Sorry it's been awhile, life gets crazy. Congrats and good luck to Cpa223 who will be starting BIT on August 19th!!

        I finally got the invite to the AC (next month) after almost 2 years since my IE. For the newly applied applicants, this probably answers a lot of your questions about timelines. it varies, A LOT! So sit back, be patient, live life, and one day you'll get an email/call that were expecting all along but still surprises the hell out of you! If anyone wants to update your timeline or add your name, please comment on this post instead of creating a new comment so that it's easier for me to keep track of. Thanks!

          A portion of your background Investigation starts before you're AC, but the big stuff like interviewing family, friends, coworkers starts after you receive a conditional job offer which is after the MI
