Silly question- how formal is the PSI? Not planning on wearing torn jeans and dirty sneakers or a suit. Just curious how casual I can get away with.

It's still a professional meeting, so I wore business casual. The agent conducting the interview was wearing a tie, though no sport coat, so I felt like I chose appropriately. YMMV

I wore a suit and tie. Suit no tie for the polygraph. At every stage the agents wore suits. So I suggest the same.

I wore a suit/tie for both PSI and poly (both were the same day).

Just got word that an investigator stopped by my most recent employer... So things are still moving along. No update on my applicant profile, still shows the same processing date.

My employment situation has drastically changed, however. Just got a new job which means joining the FBI would result in a 66%+ paycut (before it would have been a 5% raise) and I definitely want to be assigned to a large(ish) city like DC, SF, NYC, LA, Seattle (aka high COL). More factors to consider now..

I’m in the same boat. But seeing as how you move through the grades pretty much annually , I figured I’d be ok in a couple years. That made my decision to join easier.

This is exciting to hear that people are already getting notice of being in the March class! I also interviewed in Arizona and had my poly in September. So fingers crossed! But 6 months is definitely on the short side from many other timelines I've seen.

I interviewed in Arizona also and had my polygraph early September. It seems like 6 months is the common timeframe to receive a final offer and fingers are definitely crossed to hear something relatively "soon" lol. Exciting to hear people are getting placed in classes.

Yes my background was very short. My investigator called on early September for information, my previous jobs were interviewed in other cities that following week by a second investigator, and by the first week of October he was at my current job, which he said he would do last. For what it’s worth, I’ve lived and worked in a few cities and moved apartments just about every year. I found out I passed background when I was invited to the March class. He contacted me almost every day in September and after interviewing my current job in October, no contact. So I assume I’ve actually been done for quite some time.
