Re: 2018-2019 SEO Applicants

Out of curiosity, do we find out which firm we’ve been placed the same day we’re accepted?
No although you will be told the location. You’ll find out exact placement shortly after.

It definitely depends on your organization and the clearance level you’re being investigated for without that even an educated guess could range from a couple of months to a over a year for some of the higher levels. SF 85 is for non-sensitive non-national security positions so I think you can take...

I know someone who got an offer but turned it down so they may be reaching out to their next pick shortly.
How recently did they turn it down?
Maybe 2 days ago or so.

Re: 1L/Diversity SA Thread 2019

If an offer says to let them know by 2/9 does that mean I can tell them my decision on that day? Thoughts? If it says by 2/9 I'd say the absolute latest you can respond is COB on 2/9 but if you can get them an earlier response you should and if you need a response it might be worth requesting one.
