Unfortunately, these things just take time... a lot of time.

Nov 2015 - applied
Feb 2016 - exam
April 2016 - interview
August 2016 - COE
September 2016 - medical
October 2016 - completed SF86
March 2017 - references contacted by DEA as part of the "accelerated" background checks
September 2017 - contacted by first OPM investigator; additional references contacted
November 2017 - official BI interview

My BI interview was completed this morning. The investigator let me know that she "might" work on typing everything up next week. She stated that she was working on multiple contracts and others took precedence over mine. So it is what it is...

I was told that the candidates for the Feb class has all been contacted. I wish OPM would send my background back over to DEA so I can be in the running to get hired.

May I ask who told you that? Typically they can contact people up to the day before class starts. It would be odd and out of character for them to have completed the calls this early.

I see this thread is very long and I havent been able to read all posts but for those who recently applied to the recent graduate announcement and have taken the online assesment, once the results are in and interviews are conducted, any idea when this group of new hires could start training if hired and you already have a TS clearance? Also, for this type of announcement should you be hired, would you already know your duty station before going to training? Appreciate the assistance-

I spoke with HR last week and was advised that. It sounded odd to me but thats what I was told.

@Goose1200. Sit back and enjoy the LONG ride. Many 2015 applicants haven't received an academy date. I am a 2016 applicant and my background hasn't even been started. Many DI applicants have clearances, so that most likely will not speed up the process.

What percentage of people make it past the DI Exam? Is it a 50 percent cut-off?

Goose, I applied to the recent announcement as well but have you already gotten the assessments? I took the questionnaire assessments but I have yet to take the logical reasoning assessment. Is that what you are talking about or the biographical/questionnaire assessment?

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.
