I just get worried cuz I've been thru the wringer already 3 times, and this is a part of that "wringer" that hasn't happened the previous two times and I was hired then told due to budget i got cut. So this is weird to me. IDK, i guess i'll keep u guys posted. Next week first thing.
    what day are you scheduled to go?

    If there were questions on the background questionnaire the investigator would ask those not Ms. Hammond. So I think it is more in line with what Keefus said.

    There are others on here who made it through FP. Did you guys get called as well?

    To be honest, if Ms. Hammond is calling them, then it's probably for an issue that arose. She wouldn't be the one calling people directly to proceed, and correspondence to proceed is generally done through the US Mail system. Also, if it was to proceed then there would be a hell of alot more than two people posting their status on this forum. As long as no one is guilty of anything, than I don't see a need to worry. Could be something simple

Moving along is all that matter. Phew!!!!
    Awesome!!! Glad it was nothing major.
    It was hard for me to figure out why you would be called back. I don't know you other than posting on here but it is clear getting this job was something you don't take lightly. So I figured either it was the next step or something minor in question, which it was.
    Well let's hope we all hear from IAD next week and get moving along.

    You crapped in your pants and swam right in it. Worked out good :-)

    At least you got some up-to-date info. Calls going out next week sounds good to me

    Awesome man! Glad it wasn't anything major and they're giving people the opportunity to explain.

    So how long does the FP process take for those of you who have been through it? Is there anything more to it than background check and medical?

    Thanks for the quick update this morning and glad to hear they are moving this along. Hopefully we all start hearing back from IAD soon.

    Once you check out, an investigator will visit your house (if you live in city) ), once that clears, a Medical will be scheduled which consists of different types of screenings..i was there for about 4 or 5 hours, then a letter comes in the mail to report for FP. Hope it's real this time..

    Thanks, Bode. So would it be fair to say it takes roughly a month or so to go through those steps before FP?

    Well, I don't do drugs and have proof of my prescriptions so this should be fairly straight forward.

    It sounded pretty straight forward according to 2ndGen.
    As long as you have proof, you will be fine.
