I'm excited to meet a bunch of you in March! FWIW, I processed through the San Antonio field office. :)

Anyone have any idea when we'll get this infamous packet of information, so we know what to bring with us and what not?

I am excited to meet everyone as well and we'll probably get the packets after the class has been filled I would imagine :)

For everyone...

My friend has not (until today) had any contact with the FBI about his application since August 2017 when they asked a few follow up questions for his background investigation.

They just called him to inform him of his school date this summer. Apparently he has been cleared since August and no one has said anything to him. He had lost alot of morale seeing others (such as myself) come after him yet get cleared ahead of time.

If you haven't received notice that you are cleared, you very well COULD be cleared and just no one has contacted you yet. Keep your chin up.

Good luck to everyone.

I agree with @itshappening, I just messaged my person multiple times until I think I annoyed him enough to get answers. I had to do that with finding out I was cleared and to find out what class I would be going in. Which they said I am slotted for the May class right now (I'm out of DC). She said I should receive my packet in a few weeks and then there will be a one hour info session about a month out. She said she has one scheduled for the March class too. If you are in the March class and haven't heard about the session I would message your contact.

BI time and Adjudication dates vary for everyone, depending on many different things, mine took 8 months but I also have traveled a lot and my mom isn't originally from this country, she is a US citizen now, so EVERYONE keep that in mind, keep your chin up!

Hey all - just to add to what @swimchick7 says - send her your info so we can all coordinate and share information: for example: I'm in DC and willing to help people carpool, get to Quantico day of, etc. I have an SUV, so it's roomy. We're all going to be FBI family, so let's help each other out.

We have such similar timelines! Did your friend try contacting the FO at all? I sent an email recently to see if I was cleared and they said I was still held up at HQ and waiting. Just curious because I'm not sure if the FO is updated with the adjudication status even if you do contact them; maybe they have to contact HQ first, or the info isn't readily on hand? I'm hoping to get a class date sometime this year, especially with how long the BI has gone on for me. Being in week 79 of your BI is mentally and emotionally exhausting. It's preferable to having your BI suddenly cancelled (lol!), but it's still a total morale failure.

Anyways, best of luck to everyone heading out in March! I'm excited for all of you!

Hi All,

It seems that there's a lot of anxiety and confusion about the position *and* the moving issue. Read the fbi.gov website closely, and watch all the videos on youtube.

And just a few things for those of you who are still on your journey, and those of you who were in yesterday's VidChat:

Here are the FBI Field Offices:
https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices
(Hint: make use of Google maps.)

Go to this website and see what the cost of rent/housing is for an area, in order to educate yourselves on life choices with the FBI:
https://www.apartments.com

Then, for those of you needing to see what a GS 7 or 9 can live off of in bigger cities here is a great budget calculator that I have used in the past:
http://www.youcandealwit.../budget-calculator.shtml

(It CAN be done - it's a mindset to live small and simple, not a bank account thing.)

Also, when @swimchick7 and I say we're in the DC area, what we mean is that we consider Quantico to be part of our extended "neighborhood" - I've been down to Quantico several times over the years and I don't think of it as 'another city' or 'far away' so just understand that it's kindof considered part of the DC Metropolis. This is for those of you out-of-towners who might not yet understand the "DC mindset".

Continued good luck,
SFO

Hello everyone, I received the phone call for the May class this week. The person who called me said that invitations would go out the first week in March. I really would like to submit my resignation letter asap in order to spend as much time as possible at home with my 4 month old baby before going to Quantico. Has it happened to anyone that they get the call but for some reason their invitation never comes or is delayed to another class date? Is it virtually guaranteed that one follows the other?

I would not hesitate to wait for the final offer/invitation to resign, but I feel super guilty leaving my baby now when i know that I will have to leave her for another 12 weeks in May

I heard from a contact at HR today. I was told that I will likely be in the July class but they may be able to get me into the May class. I was also told there is a September class as well. Not sure if there will be classes after September as my background check would have to be redone after that; she did not bother mentioning whether there were classes beyond September. So even if you aren't in the May class there are several other classes this year. Also she told me that all of the conditional offer letters say Washington D.C. just so they can get the background check started. When I was on the phone with her she asked what office I wanted to be in.

Yes, he did call several times since September and he was told that he was still pending background. The person that advised of his training class said that he should have been contacted back in September. He was slightly annoyed but not really because he is slotted for a date, that overrode everything.

They would not have to do your background again for September, they have a yr and 30 days from your adjudication date to get you into a class :)
