First time I’ve applied and it was for the 7/7 bid, current TOL holder just waiting on my medical to clear at this point. If you do apply for future bids good luck!
You already recieved cil? I got my TOL the first day they sent out and still no cil

CIL’s are sent out in very controlled small waves. HR is only allowed to send a certain amount each month to make sure they don’t flood the security, medical, or MMPI-2 POC’s with 1,200+ applicants all at once. There are certainly more of us than there are of them!

Last year my USAJobs said referred all the way up until a week before they sent out the next OTS bid, at which time I received an e-mail rejection and invitation to apply again. I applied again, took the ATSA again (I do not believe you have the option of re-using your same score) and was referred again. I got a TOL and CIL this year, have completed security and am now finishing up medical. It's a long process. I first applied in Aug 2016. There are others who have applied several years, been referred, but no TOL. Read up on the threads, there is a lot of helpful information here, on .65 and Reddit. Then study hard to hopefully get a TOL in the next one. Good luck!

I'm the same as you. I first applied in August 2016 but got a tol on this bid but still waiting on cil they only send out 300 cil a month. I know this because I know the guy that is over the dfw facility

Yeah I feel very lucky that the process has been really quick for me this year. At this rate, I could have a class date within a month or two. I've heard all the horror stories of waiting months and months for CIL and FOL, so have been very pleasantly surprised at the pace for me.

Good luck to you and hopefully you get your CIL soon!

What are EODs?

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G928A using Tapatalk
I got an e-mail back after I accepted the TOL confirming they received my acceptance, and then giving me access to the Entrance on Duty System (EODS), where you input all your background info for them to start the security check. That will come before your CIL (at least it did for me). I'd definitely call my HR rep and make sure they got the TOL acceptance if you haven't gotten that. They are probably still there right now, I'd call ASAP lol.

It's longer than just your social, it's all your past work history, your references, your past addresses, security questions, etc. It's an online system that you login to and fill it out. Took me about 30 minutes to complete, but could take longer if you need to get all your reference's contact info, etc.

There is also another form you sign to either take or skip the Basics course.

haha you're welcome, glad you got it because yeah that would have definitely screwed you over. Good luck with the medical and security, I'm doing my AME and drug test on Monday, so hoping to have a class date soon. Maybe we'll end up at the academy around the same time!

And I'm a dudette :p

you may make the deposit at any time, just understand that shipping will be a factor in the final cost, the more people that split the shipping, the cheaper itll be.
