Congrats to everyone passing their Phase 3s and recieving CJOs.

I'm curious to ask- did anyone from the December San Diego Phase 3 rounds receive CJOs? Or is anyone from those rounds not "Discontinued"? I have sent countless unanswered emails about why my app got Discontinued with no notice.

I can't pretend to know your frustration, but I imagine if it were me it'd be pretty bad.

I'd recommend getting in touch with your local FO and having them provide you with the number of an HRS (Human Resources Specialist) in the IASP program. They can duck your emails, but once you have them on the phone, you're set. Unless they hang up on you. Just keep calling. Nag them. It may sound petty, but honestly what other choice do you have?

Best of luck, and do let us know of any updates.

I'm glad CJOs are starting to happen for more folks! I'm sure it varies by FO, but mine seems to be flying right now (by comparison to other wait times). My PSI and Poly are scheduled already...both next week!

That's awesome things are moving for people! I was recently told by HR that classes are only full through Fiscal Year 2017 - September. Maybe there's some hope of starting earlier than expected for people already in BI?

CJO - 10/2016

Have to make sure I'm reading this right, you've been in background for almost 20 months? If so, any particular reason, frequent international travel/moves, etc.?

So sad... I know I read that as 2016. In my mind I skipped a year and said, hey, it's already the following May. Subconscious wIshful thinking, I'd say.

Anyway, regardless, I think you're still within the normal processing timeframe. Average is 8-12 months I think?

Good luck mate.

Thank you! Average is 6-9 months according to the emails the FBI has recently started sending out!

In a great turn of events- someone finally got back to me and said they "re-reviewed my application, and that I now possess a top critical skill." Just received my CJO and I'm jumping with joy!

I feel like an ass for this and don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but all this news of everyone receiving offers makes my P3 failure even more embarrassing.

Sorry for that.

Congrats, you deserve to enjoy it.

Just wondering, how did you get this information? I got my CJO in August of 2016 and I haven't heard any news about when I may be called to camp. You are saying that the September class is already full?

Is it true that IA training classes are booked up until 2019? Kinda seems pointless to go through the process to wait two years for a start date doesn't it?


Just wondering, where did you get your information that classes were full until 2019? I have been trying to get in touch with someone for months about when I may be called to camp but haven't heard anything.

My contact from my FO emailed me saying I was undergoing reviews in the final stages of my BI, and also told me that HQ told her classes were full for fiscal year 2017. She also said that this could change though, and she would keep me posted. Tough situation when you're trying to make plans! I'm relocating in two weeks, which makes it even more difficult since I can't really get a full time position as I could be starting with the FBI at any point within the next year. I feel like I have to disclose my job offer with the FBI in any interview.

That's actually my concern. My PSI is later today. I'm currently between jobs and feel like if an offer appears for somewhere else, it's a tough situation...being torn between acknowledging this process up front or waiting until I absolutely have to say something. Obviously, I'm just starting this part of the process, but the timeline for getting to Q is so random...it could be 6 months...it could be 6 years.

Being that I was part of the Atlanta group I am obviously fairly new to the process. That said, I have already put in a year for the process as far as applications and testing goes. At this point, I would just say that everyone still waiting should keep checking emails and remain patient. If a job or location changes or both, roll with those punches and cross that bridge when you get to it.

If need be, update your contacts or info on FBIjobs.gov. You have given them the best information when it was available to you, so update them when you know more, I'm sure there have been more complex situations they've dealt with in the past. The way I see it, most of the parts I am required to really prep for and follow up on are completed, so all I can do now is wait or email if need be and POSSIBLY expect a response. Otherwise, it's like getting a number and waiting at the DMV to be called.

Haha, exactly. I would say if you're in the BI, you have to disclose it up front. They will definitely be coming in to interview your employer within a couple months of the start of your investigation - they did for me. Might make for an awkward situation if you don't mention it.,For me, all of my employer/contact interviews are over, but they would probably interview a new employer, so it's a tricky situation.
