2018 applicant here. Recently received interim security clearance and a preference sheet for the next class. Anyone know the odds of starting the academy with an interim clearance pending the completion of a full investigation?

I was told there probably won’t be another class this year and the next one most likely won’t be until next summer.

Yeah. I found odd given how close it was to the class starting. I recall people getting notice about a month or two ago.

The preference sheet will list what class it is for. What class did it state this was for?

If your asking about what you'll be graded on in the Academy - everything! You'll have written exams as well as practical exams. Your writing skills will be evaluated. Your attitude will be evaluated. Your class participation will be evaluated. Your personal appearance will be evaluated (no dirty/stained uniforms). Proper uniform or dress for the day. You will be evaluated on how well you follow instructions. You will be evaluated on how well you get along with others. Your team spirit or team work will be evaluated. Your rooms will be inspected. Not a military style inspection but they will be looked at. Your counselors have to do written evaluations on you. You will receive counseling from your counselor and advised of your progress and areas needing improvement. Heed their advice. Every staff member at the Academy will be watching you. Every agent and DI there at the Academy for advanced training will be watching you. You will be under a microscope for the 12 weeks you are at Quantico.

Pay attention in class. Ask questions if you are not sure of something. Be a team player. Help each other. Form study groups. Don't be a smartass know it all. Don't rock the boat. Remember, it's DEA's house. You applied for (ask for) this job. DEA has been doing it their way for a long time. Don't try to change it because you don't like the way its being done or it wasn't done "that way" at your former employment. Play by their rules and you shouldn't have any problems. COOPERATE AND GRADUATE!!!

Good luck to all headed to the "Q" next week for DI-56. Your new adventure is about to begin. Fasten your seat belts you're in for a bumpy ride. Safe travels. To those waiting in the wings - hang in there. Be patient, your time will come.

Hello All!
I have received my letter from suitability stating I have not been selected to move forward. It has been my pleasure in being a part of this group for the last 3 years, and I wish you all the very best!
No worries, though...I have accepted a position that I am most grateful for!
For those from 8/18 group still waiting...be patient. Your time is near!
Take care. Stay safe.

Tentative offers are going out for the summer 2020 vacancy announcement. I interviewed in March 2021. I'm hoping they'll rely on my Army Top Secret from 2020, but it sounds unlikely.

Are there international opportunities for DIs? I know that DEA has offices in other countries, but what are the requirements for getting picked to go overseas? I would assume that the preference sheets before the academy only list domestic choices and that you’d have to have some tenure before working at a foreign post?
