If I applied this June and already took the ATSA...do I have to reapply to take the test again?
If you mean "do I need to reapply in order to take the test again," yes... you can't just waltz in and ask to take it.

If you mean "do I need to take the test again if I reapply," not necessarily but if you didn't get a TOL it's probably a good idea.

If you mean "do I need to reapply and take the test again in order to be considered again"—yes you need to reapply if you didn't get a TOL, but your score is good for (IIRC) three years so you don't HAVE to take the test if you don't want to. If you did get a TOL there's no point in reapplying, either you pass your medical and background checks or you don't.

Any point in re-applying for experienced bid once you get your CIL to potentially get a different list?

I’m on course to graduate in May with my Bachelor‘s... would it be wise to apply for the bid that is scheduled for late January? Pending shutdown of course, I just wanted to ask since I have received different answers each time

190% apply. You will not go for he academy before school gets out. No way no how.

That’s what I figured, just didn’t know how technical things were going to be.

Finishing school won’t be an issue, but you have to meet the eligibility requirements by the closing date of the announcement if I remember correctly. So you would need some “progressive work history” to add onto your not quite finished schooling, I think.*
Thankyou!! Will do.

You can't get multiple lists. Coming back into the agency after some years off, I had 3 TOL's at once; prior exp, OTS, & direct hire. I was forced to choose one before proceeding.

I think if he turns one list down before getting a TOL for the next bid then he can essentially get another list without doing any of the clearances from scratch.
It might work so it’s worth a try.
