    Good luck
    Haven't even taken my poly yet. So just that they didn't like it. All I can do is put my writing skills to use and explain the stupidity of my actions.

    Anyone on here appeal a NOPA for THC successfully?

          Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
          Good luck bud. Just be honest and thorough in your response and see what they say. I know MJ use is a big issue for them but I also have seen applicants pass with noted MJ experimentation from a long time ago. Five years is not that long ago though. I experimented twice with MJ 16 years ago (hated it) and fully expect to get grilled when the time comes.

                So you kept your beard when you enter your EOD? I wonder if you need to ask for approval from your supervisor?

                    I'm still waiting for my finger print card package to come in the mail still. My investigator told me she was going to send out a new package August 25th. I'm still waiting does anyone know how long it would take to arrive ? I'm also wondering if that means IA didnt get my equip because of me not receiving the fingerprint package. Im scheduled for VBT next week and I completed my pft-1/ medical. If anyone can give me insight to this matter I appreciate. Thank you

I've been wondering if it's unusual for it to take 5+ months since the date my info was sent to IA until getting a call for a poly. I contacted MHC and they told me my BI docs were sent to IA around March and I've yet to be called. I'm a 13-1 applicant in West Coast. Thanks!
                          My case was submitted to IA in March as well, currently waiting on my BI to clear and EOD. I have heard that they are backlogged at the west coast for poly. So it could be that.

                          NOPA is somewhat good coz it gives you a chance to explain yourself. After you write your heart out as you mentioned, make sure you go back and check it multiple times to make sure you are 100% sure. Good luck

                          Tell me, how did you send your eqip the same day you received it? Did you do it before? Was it ready?

                          Congrats Diana and best of luck on the pft2, you will do great. How long it took you between meeting your BI until it was cleared on CASS? It has been 8 weeks for me and I am waiting on my BI to clear on CASS.

                            Thanks for the reply Jade. I was hoping to at least have started the polygraph portion by now, seeing how others with similar time lines have already finished or almost finished their BI. Do you think this warrants a call to IA or just be patient?
