    Rough timeline?! According to your dates, your process took ONE year. Ask people who have been in this process since 2010 (or even 2008) about what rough timeline is. You got lucky...and that was a good thing. I hope you get your call soon even if it's before I get mine.

          Think he meant roughly estimated timeline, what is your timeline looking like Stoneface?

            Haha I meant "rough" as in not a precise date for each step. I definitely got lucky (understatement) with going through this whole process in a year. Props to the guys and gals hanging around waiting for the call for 1,2,3 years...etc!

            Hope you all get the call soon!!!!

                  Prior to the most recent bg did they send you a notification to update your equip or did they work off of your previous sf 86?
                  I had to do an update. While you may not have to do all of the initial gathering of info for it, it's still a pain because you have to go back through EVERYTHING, line by line!

                    My timeline:

                    GEO: SWB

                    FLETC:

                    I know the call will come when it is suppose to, but in the mean time I've been training for PFT2 and enjoying life. I try not to think too much about this process...until someone asks me (every. single. day.) if I've heard anything yet!! So bloody annoying. I want to really be a brat and scream who gives a flying fig?!?!

                    Sigh.

                      Ohh my bad! I totally thought you meant it the other way. I stand corrected.

                        • I contacted the Minneapolis hiring center and I was told that I am waiting for internal affairs to contact me for the polygraph. Does that mean that my background has already started? I am trying to calculate when my background will be completed. I hear some people say that it takes two years.

                            It doesn't mean anything. If you have not been contacted for your polygraph, then more than likely your background has not started. The polygraph is the first part of your background...if you pass the polygraph, the second part of the background investigation will begin.

                            As far as trying to calculate when your background will be completed, don't waste your time. If you have not read the posts on this forum then you should because they notate precisely how random these steps are for applicants. You can wait a few months or a few years. There is no exact time frame for any of it. Just scroll through the pages and peruse the timeline of members on here...see for yourself. There is a huge degree of unpredictability involved with this application process, which it is often discussed on here.

                              Don't mean on stepping on your toes but I'm not sure if this is correct. I remember receiving 2 letters from my credit agencies detailing cbp's action on looking into my credit history. I have not done my poly yet and I don't even have it scheduled. I think they run through your paperwork very quickly and point out things of interest to them look at it then decided if they are going to proceed. But I could be wrong. Anyone have insight on this ?

                                What isn't correct? Can you please elaborate?

                                Also, CBP checking an applicant's credit report is part of their protocol relevant to your application... in order to have your file squared away for IA. I wouldn't necessarily say a credit check on an applicant indicates CBP's initiation of their investigation into that applicant's background. A credit check is much like a formal transcript request...all part of protocol for the purpose of making determinations on your file.

                                One can always argue that CBP looking at a credit report is part of background. Of course, this is subject to interpretation...
