That goes for me also. Our backgrounds are not adjudicated yet. That’s the only way for the pref sheet.

If it is any consolation on the ATF Ioi forum we are experiencing the same thing.

Academy is Feb 1 and we are all in wait mode as we are 8 weeks out from game time.

Alas, we are hearing nothing.

I was told DEA wanted to wait for information from my background. That is normal if your background was already completed. The ground work of my background was completed. Now just waiting for DEA to get back and adjudicate it. So no interim clearance. Does anyone have information on the OPM backlogged? Is there any progress?

Oh wow. Interesting. They requested info for my interim after mine had already been sent back to adjudication. Maybe that’s why I never got a call with my interim.

They requested forms from me for an interim clearance also. But A couple of months back I check on my background and it’s still pending from OPM.

Hello, first time contributor here.

I am a November 2015 applicant. I turned in my preference sheet last month, but haven't heard anything since. Any other status updates for November 2015 applicants? Does anyone know the chances of NOT being selected for the upcoming February class if you received and returned your preference sheet? I read that they can offer positions up until the day before the class starts, but I also read here that someone thinks they've already made their selections for the February class. Any input is sincerely appreciated.

Hi, Elle... welcome to the forum. No news here either but Government employees tend to take a lot of time off around the holidays so I am not surprised that we are not hearing much. I did check with HR though and contrary to the rumor that was floating around, the next academy is NOT full. Hang in there!

Was the Feb class originally the Jan class or was it a totally different class? And why do they move the classes so much?

Well at any rate Im still waiting like a waiter while looking like a looker over here.

If nothing else Ive learned extreme patience with this position.I truly hope its a dynamic agency with good supportive people, good personalities, moral and opportunities.

BootnGrind,

The classes get moved around for a variety of reasons.

#1 We need funding
#2 We have to have enough qualified and cleared candidates to fill the class. The biggest delay is getting people through the BI and getting them cleared.
#3 We need classroom space and living space. The Academy trains the basic schools for DIs as well as Special Agents, Intell and Chemists. They also have advanced training classes and classes for foreign counterparts. If any of the other classes get rescheduled it could and has effected the DI class because we only have a certain number of classrooms and beds.

Those are just some of the reasons a class can be rescheduled. All sorts of things effect the scheduling of the classes and can cause a class to be rescheduled or worse, cancelled.

I believe it is a dynamic agency with supportive people, high moral and great opportunities. In my opinion its the best kept secret in the government. Of course every agency has its issues and malcontents. It is a government agency after all so there is always room for improvement. From my experience its all about attitude. If a person has a crappy attitude and complains/gripes all the time about everything then no matter what they will find fault and be negative no matter how good an agency is or what the agency does for its personnel. So if a person has a good attitude, works hard, learns the job and doesn't "sweat the small stuff" then they should be happy and successful in this career.

The next BDI class dates are March 5 through May 25, 2018. For those that have received preference sheets, you can call HR and get an update on your status for the class if you are pressed. The class is not full yet.

I can contest to the BI, I’ve been waiting since March 2017. I still haven’t received my preference sheet from DEA, the last time I got mine was during the interview. Last I heard DEA is still waiting for my BI to be sent over by OPM and adjudicated.

In all my years I have never seen a class filled 2 or 3 months out from the class start date. Its just never happened. As I've posted many times before - I've seen candidates contacted 1, 2 and 3 days before the class starts. Now I'm not saying it can't happen - but if history holds true - it won't happen this time. I believe, based on history, they will be working to fill the class through January and February.

There is still time. Stressing won't make the time go by any faster and it sure won't guarantee your selection. Right now its out of your hands. Enjoy the holidays and give yourself a break from the stress and worry of the wait. Relax and enjoy your family and friends.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Last week I received my preference sheet for DI academy #50 in March, and today I just received my SF86c. Nov 2015 applicant here, a legacy applicant after two years and counting lol. All I can do is keep waiting and see what happens.
