He has only been there a couple weeks and I figure its way too early to tell what it's going to be like. This guy was running everyday and going to the gym. He got out of the Marines a year ago. I figure that's what he is comparing it to. Anyone know the difficulty at FLETC??
    One should never get over confident going into something new and unkown, but your buddy pretty much has it right on the money.

My background investigator said that she had to turn everything in 2 weeks ago so I hope I hope my status change in the next two weeks.
      Sit tight there buddy.

      I met with my BI 19 weeks ago at the end of Sept. She submitted my case to security on 10/10. Nothing since.

        No east coast love. I've been seeing a lot of East Texas and Florida calls.

        Where's the Philly love?

          Well at least someones in the exact same boat as me. How did you know when you file was submitted for review?

            The BI told my mom when she interviewed her. Said she needed to conduct the interview on a Wed. because it needed to be submitted that Friday 10/10. Makes sense since I was interviewed on 9/24. From what I hear, BI's have about 3-4 weeks to submit your case by their deadline after they receive it.

                Interesting, i know some people have their BI's number and/or email, but not me. I have no interest in bugging my BI. Was just wondering if it was a common thing for the BI to let you know they submitted the file and was wondering why mine did not. Of course last time i went through they didnt tell then either, so who knows? Had the same BI both times and she interviewed me, my folks, friends and neighbors all in the same day.

                    Its safe to assume you passed. You'll get a letter in the mail telling you that.

                    • You can also say "oral board" when you're on the CASS hotline and it will give you a more detailed description.

                          Some BIs do, some don't.. depends on the person. Its more of a courtesy than anything. If you were to call and ask, I couldn't see why he or she wouldn't tell you.

                          I like knowing that I'm not the only one waiting. This forum is great. How are you passing the time? I'm close to 5 months since my BI meet. At 6 months, I'm going to ask for that IA phone number.

                            Just pulling my hair out and eating TUMS like everyone else. And shoveling snow. Im not the type to call BI's or IA. I just would hate to get someone mad and have them drop my file behind their desk.

                                The Investigator that interviews you is a contractor paid by OPM, they have just a few weeks to do their interview and submit a report...to get paid!

                                As to calling IA to check up on your case... If I had not contacted them, I would probably still be a file gathering dust since my adjudicator didn't even know she had my case! The last action taken on my case was right after they got it from the investigator in Jan 08', and that was before she even began working there, she got stuck with the previous adjudicators cases... Mine was one of them. It shouldn't take more than 6 months to get cleared, some that I have helped were tossed aside by some stupid thing that a phone call could've cleared... they waited 6 months or more and when they finally got in touch with them it was a simple matter of "oh that information is incorrect, it should be this, this, and that"... and soon after they were cleared. We shouldn't be afraid of getting anyone mad at us for them not doing their job, and it is after all our future that they hold idly in their hands...

                                NORDY...
                                Congrats Man!...
