Its been a rough ride.

Guys after scouring these forums and making my own posts regarding my concerns… I can finally join the ranks and say that I have been favorably adjudicated for SECRET.

Almost exactly one year. Thank you everyone who’s given me advice or even took the time to read my posts. Its been a rough ride!


Under a year! Yes . . . Only by a week, but still . . . Congratulations and welcome to the club!

Congrats! Whew! Did you follow up with the agency/recruiter from time to time to ascertain status?

can I ask what Agency your secret is for, ie, DoD, DoS, DHS, etc. Thank-you

Yes I was an annoyance to I’m sure. I called and emailed ALL the time. I bet my FSO was relieved to give me the green light.

Ha! Nice catch. My hire date was May 1st, so I was going by that for some reason lol. You’re right though. Under a year! And thank you, I’m happy to join the club.

I work at one of the NASA centers. Won’t say which agency.

Outstanding. Now continue to live within the guidelines and pursue the TS.

I feel better to hear that! I have been wondering whether my follow-ups may be perceived as a royal pain in their asses, but really, who cares. They can’t expect folks to twiddle their thumbs in the dark so I will continue to be annoying. Congrats again!
