I have considered it, several times, but haven’t called him. I do know from talking to him back in May that he was responsible for the portion of the BI from where I currently live and work. Since I lived in a few other places, there will be other investigators for those areas. But even so, I can’t see how it is taking so long.

Thanks for bringing that up, good suggestion. I am going to give him a call and ask to see if there is anything I can do. Thanks!

That was about the same timeframe for me. FBIJobs had me in background as of March and was contacted in Mat by the background investigator. Hopefully you hear something soon!

I've been in BI for 3 months and haven't had any contact with my AC as I don't want to bother them, knowing it's a waiting game. But I also am very near the age cutoff so if I get stuck in the BI for a year, I'll get the old age boot.



My AC said to check in every couple months. That seems like a good time for us and probably for most people. That way you can be like “hey, I’m still here!”

I'm with you guys, applied Aug 2016. HQ returned my medical in Sep 17 asking for a follow-up because of my VA disability rating (which isn't actually accurate, LONG story). Competed the medical follow up in Oct 17 (passed with ease) and now back to waiting. My clearance isn't complete either. Granted I moved often due to the military, I've maintained a TS/SCI for 18 years and yet I still wait. People with no clearance ever have gone faster then me. And to put icing on the cake, I require an age waiver which will add even more time to my process. So the March class sounds about right for me, March of 2019! I may be a front runner for longest application timeline. I'm contemplating when is the time to throw in the towel as my current job was meant as a filler job while I wait for Q...

I hope you all make it in soon!


You are not alone WOLF! I applied in Feb 2016. Like you, I had a med follow-up in Oct and am still waiting for clearance. All I can say is to keep faith and stay the course.

I was with you all until recently when I found out that I was discontinued for suitability reasons (see details in the long post I just put up). A kick in the gut to say the least. Not sure if I can re-apply again in the future, but I'll give it a go and find out. Good luck to the rest of you. Keep the faith.

Nothing that exciting, just had a few qualifying races I was focusing on and since my AC said not to expect to hear anything till 2018 I just put it in the back of my mind :)
