I believe the Jan class starts the 18th or 25th.

So if we haven't heard by now, I assume we are not going?

Anyone know if there is a way to update the attachments on an application. Just got what seems to be an automated email to update my attachments in preparation for my conditional offer but there's no way to update the ones pre-attached from a specific application, only attach new ones to your FBI profile

I've had almost no updates except that I did get an email back in October asking if I was still interested in the position and saying that HR was working hard to get through the backlog to move cases forward for adjudication. In December, I asked if there was any chance of this happening within the next few months and was told that HR had a deadline to get through the backlog "by the new year." I haven't heard anything since then, but I did see a date change in my application on 1/15/2021 (first one since Oct 2019). I don't know what it means, but any movement feels like a small victory right now. Has anyone gotten similar information about the backlog for the IA apps? Any recent date changes on their apps?

My timeline for those wondering...

Nothing here. It's the 1 year anniversary of any changes on my online portal. Took my poly about a week before that date change.

I messaged a contact at local FO at end of August to fish a little bit. All I got was "you're still in background". I appreciate the swiftness of the response (like 3 minutes) because I know some that have headaches just getting anyone to reply.

I've yet to see my credit pulled. That's kind of concerning, but I guess all background investigations don't necessarily follow the same steps/timeline. I'm about 4 months behind you based on poly though.

Congrats!! I got a call the other week which was my one year mark since my poly and PSI just updating stuff. I’m just hoping to hear something by the end of the year. Nervous that people from the 2020 posting will lap us.

Well, cmar, I'm still right there with you! I'm a 2018 applicant and my last portal date change was December of 2019. 😳 I contact my AC monthly to check in, but I either get no response or a nothing's changed response. 🤷‍♀️

Well, after posting on the 1-yr anniversary of my last portal date change...it changed! Went from last update of 1/22/20 to 1/29/21.

I know it doesn't mean anything is over or even nearing an end. As best I can tell, my credit hasn't even been pulled yet. But it felt like poking something with a stick and seeing movement. It's alive!!!

I hadn’t thought to even check for a date change, but mine changed to 1/14/21. That was about a week before I got a call from the FO.

I am a plan for the worst and hope for the best kinda person, which is why I didn't come in here sooner and mention my date change. :)
I am just going to go on expecting a rejection letter until I get news otherwise. I had a date change on the 8th, but when I emailed my AC asking if she could tell me what it meant, well... you know what happened. Nothing. Haha!

I just got a call from the agent in charge of my background. Based on that and a bunch of us getting date changes, I'd suspect they're finishing up backgrounds for several IAs for the April class. Fingers crossed, at any rate!

But I'm a little worried because I had to move to a different state recently and I'm concerned it's going to set me back several months when it seemed like I was nearing the end. Has anyone else moved to a new state while in background? Did you have to re-do any steps?


I moved across the country after I did my PSI. I let my AC know where I would be going, and she took care of forwarding all of the info they had to my new FO. The new FO contacted me to set up the rest of the steps. It wasn't necessarily a smooth transition, though. The new FO thought that the old FO did fingerprints, so they didn't have me do them when I went in for my poly and drug test. My AC realized the oopsie four months later and called me to return to do them...and the FO is 4-5 hours from me. Once my prints were done it was a very short period of time before I had an investigator knocking on my door asking me questions. I did not have to re-do any steps.

I think how smoothly the process goes will depend on who is handling your paperwork...when they care about their job and the impact it has on others, it clearly works out better (that has been my experience, at least). I would just recommend keeping in contact with both the losing and gaining offices until you know that everything made it where it needed to go.

I hope it all goes well for you!

Thanks for the response! I told my previous FO Coordinator that I was moving and asked about connecting with the new FO. Unfortunately, the old FO just isn't very responsive so she never got back to me about it. I ended up emailing the HQ Coordinator to let her know directly. She is a bit more responsive, so I'm hoping she takes care of it. I'm glad they were able to get all your stuff figured out eventually!


I'm sure a lot of people have had issues at some point with responsiveness, but if your old FO happens to be ATL, then I get it! :D

Come back and let us know how things are going for you!

My background guy previously called me when he was done interviewing people, but I thought there is a lot that goes on at HQ to adjudicate us?
