    My background investigator reached out to me to let me know he was done and submitting his findings. Had a great experience.

        So how long did said radio silence last for you? Which I guess in your case means between medical and med clearance.

          Yup same here. They notified me they were submitting it...that by no means is a green light.

            Well, I was notified around Dec. 8 that they were finishing the last of my info up and sending it in for adjudication. A nice lady called me to obtain the info and told me it was to finish up things and send it in. I then figured I would receive my medical clearance next if all went well (sent my follow up Sept 2 2015, just for a more in depth eye exam bc I had lasik and a new blood test for something trivial). It was radio silence and I thought I would be good to go soon and then out of nowhere on April 21st 2016 a very nice woman from adjudications called me for another supplemental questionnaire regarding a job I had and was very sweet, saying it was no big deal and to have faith. Then more radio silence until July 21st when I received it.

            • I have read most of this thread and I would like to ask those in the Schedule B process about the timeline of their application process. Most of the info here seems to be from the old hiring announcement and I feel bad for those poor souls. Can anyone in the Schedule B provide the steps and timelines for their applications? I applied for the May announcement and just completed the exam and am trying to guestimate when and what the next steps will be. Thanks!

                Most of us on here are and have been schedule b. Schedule b is continuous until they stop it. It doesn't work as a normal announcement so I don't know which old announcement you speak of. If anything most of us feel bad for those just starting out schedule b. Most of us have been in the process almost two years to get our med clearances. The rest have been in for a year with the exception of the recent schedule b rotation.

                • You're fortunate bcash, I also applied through Schedule B in May but have not received any correspondence regarding testing or anything. I hope to hear soon. But it does appear that the process is lengthy regardless of normal application or Schedule B.

                  • From the ATF recruiter, ATF is no long doing schedule B hiring and the May 2016 applicants were the last bunch. ATF will open up SA positions on usajobs.gov sometime in 2017

                      Ok then. Hopefully they will hire those from May 2016.
                      OUT!!

                        I'll admit. After being in an academy when the last shutdown hit, I have seen how easily budgets and classes change. So, I am pretty worried if those with med clearances just waiting on preference sheets will even get a class with the fiscal year starting midnight Oct. 1 or even timing out and making us re-apply.

                              Abacus is 10-4 though.

                                Eish, that is not what I was hoping to hear. I don't anticipate any issues with my medical or past employment but you never know. After being in this process for a year and a half, you'd think I would have learned to just expect the unexpected...but I guess I'm just anxious to see if this whole process is actually gonna work out for me. Just gotta keep telling myself..."Patience, grasshopper!"
