Congratulations!


For those that have gotten the call...How long do you have to think about the offer/location and get back with your answer?

Just to recap: Did anyone who got the call get their first choice? Did you only choose "Orange" locations?

Also, when do you have to report to Quantico? Is it a few days before the start of the class?

A Big Congratulations to all those who have received offers! I know so many of us have been going through this process so long and it's good to see it paying off.

They said we had to choose an orange locality within our top four picks and a second orange locality somewhere within our seven picks, so we all had to put at least two orange localities down on our preference sheet.

Yep, I did the same with my SF86c but I was wondering whether or not the people who did receive offers just checked off all orange locations to maximize their chances or just chose a couple. I thought it might give us some insight as to what they're thinking.

I chose 4 orange cities out of my 7. Three out of the first four were orange. My top pick was the furthest one from me currently, out on the west coast. I chose it thinking there was no way they were gonna send me there and...lets just say that backfired lol.

Long time reader, first time responding.

I applied in August 2018 and received a call Friday morning. I also chose 4 orange cities, first choice being my overall top choice and an orange one. They called and offered my first choice. I had some stipulations to accepting the position in regards to step level, not GS level which the woman I spoke to said they should be able to work with my step level. I accepted the position and will follow up to ensure the GS/Step is finalized.

I was given 4 days. She even asked me if I wanted time to think about it, which I thought was very considerate.

I did not get my first or second choice. I did get my 3rd choice which was an orange city, so it does look like they are filling orange cities first.

I did not get a "report date"-just a date when class starts. She said someone from training would be contacting me later to provide all the info relating to training. She didn't say when they would contact me nor give me a timeframe.
