Or what i should write in the letter? I mean i know i need to obviously ask why, but i’m not sure if there is some kind of formality I need to include in the letter, or just ask questions as to why, and how long before I can apply again. I hope you all have better luck than i did. I appreciate any help!


Did it say to wait a year?


No, it didn't. All the letter stated was that it could be a number of possibilities as to why i have been discontinued, and to write a letter requesting why.

I don't think this is an "appeal" letter where you need to craft some carefully worded response, but just a request for info. After you get their response, maybe there are further steps you can pursue.

You may also want to do a "Privacy Act" request to get a copy of your investigation (people always say "Freedom of Information Act" but when it applies to your own personal case, I think it is privacy act). They used to have a link on their internet site.

So it sounds like the letter you received did not have the verbiage that others have reported about "you may apply to other positions" which you may have seen elsewhere on this forum.

DISCLAIMER: You read it on an open internet forum :)

How long does the In Review process take? I've been at it for over 11 weeks and have a hunch that they are probably going to say no.

Try to be as detailed as possible when looking for advice on this forum, it just usually gains better responses. What is your timeline? Where are you at in processing?

Is it because you are from the DPRK?

I see people mentioning they have talked to, emailed, or heard from the FSO (here and on other sites). Can anyone steer me in the right direction for finding out how to contact this person? I would really like to find out a little more information than my recruiter is able to give.

FSO is for contractors. If you applied for a job with the USG there is no FSO for you.

5/2019 - Applied on NSA Official Website.
7/2019 - Took DLPT test at HQ and had Operational interview.

What if your interview doesn't go well, do you still get the CJO or is it depends solely on your interview?

I am currently employed by the DoD and have a current TS/SCI with CI Poly.

Did you get the contact info for the people conducting the interview? If they did not offer it, always ask. You can follow up with them and be up front and ask if they are going to extend an offer to you.

They told me that I will hear from HR so I didn't ask them further questions. No they did not left any contact info. I only have my recruiter information.
