Wondering, is the State Dept (as kind of an intelligence agency) like other IC members where a denial means you will never get another shot (provided mitigation exists)? I know technically some three letters will let you re-apply after a waiting period but in practice you don’t really get considered. True here also? Does anyone know any official waiting period State has for civil service? I’ve seen that unfavorable suitability will bar you from foreign service for at least two years. Thanks!
