There are some smaller airports like one in Manassas but it is usually cheaper to fly into an international airport. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask, this whole process for me at least has been dragging on and long but we only have a few more weeks before the start date. I will help however I can but I can't answer what isn't asked.


Chat,
So if we fly into any of these two airports, what's the best train/bus route to get into Virginia? I may not have a car. I'm looking into flights now before they get too expensive. No FJO tho :/


Great question I would suggest looking into VRE that's the main train and Amtrak. The only bad part is you may have to take a cab to the train station but it will be much cheaper than taking a cab. There is actually a station inside the base on main side. It will drop you off in the town of Quantico which resides inside the base.
I found this site which gives pretty good info. https://www.rome2rio.com...port-DCA/Stafford-VA-USA


Thank you for the reference. In your opinion, which airport is closer to the VRE station? is it Dulles?

DCA which is Ronald Regan International airport is the closest to Quantico. It is right next to DC and Arlington and the closest to Union Station for the trains.

Sorry mxm123 I guess no one has, I personally have never used AirBnB.


I was potentially looking at AirBnB! It could be a great option since a lot are furnished. Just be prepared for the possibility of your "land lord" to be living with you. That was my biggest reason not to take one.

Nice to know there may actually be a market for our home in that area if we ever decide to rent it out or sell it! I think it'd be kind of cool to rent it out to 5 fbi interns someday... especially since background checks and all that have already been done!

Hello everyone,

If you still need a place to live, pm me. I can suggest a place in Aquia Harbor (Stafford area) pretty close to the base. The guy has an RV and a basement that he is renting out...He has the place on Airbnb but if you talk to him directly he'll cut you a pretty good deal.
PM me for his contact info.
thanks 1 user thanked ISE93 for this useful post.

Yes. I am still waiting - no updates in the system and was part of the 2017 group that never got adjudicated last year.

Hey!
I'm still waiting for an FJO, but I did get favorably adjudicated last Friday. A lady called me June 8th, and initially said I could start with the Monday June 11th group. Later she called me back and said there was a glitch in the system and she wouldn't be able to get an FJO out in time for the Monday start date, but that I will for sure start the 25th. She said I should receive my FJO by the end of this week... Still waiting though. The processing date on the portal did change though. Hope this info helps.
