Thread: Criminal background record?

    Default Re: Criminal background record?

    I went to my local police station with a fingerprint form I printed out from the FBI website (as per explicit instructions from my program coordinator) and paid $10 or so. The fingerprint technician seemed convinced that I had the wrong form. I was confused and tried to ask him what the right form was, but he said that we might as well try it. He said "I'll take your prints but don't blame me when they come back from the FBI rejected." Then he took my prints with a weary, defeated look on his face.

    I sent the form to the FBI and got my background check back soon afterward with no problem.

    When I mistakenly thought I had to have prints for the initial application last year, I had the same experience. They wanted me to buy the card from them, it seems.

    Ah I just got the card they had D: It had all the same info as the one I'd printed from the website so I figured I might as well. Ouch I didn't realize electronic fingerprints were so steep. Hope mine were good enough..

    hmm I'm cutting it close. I am supposed to fly to Singapore in June for my dad's wedding so I honestly would much rather be in the normal group anyway.. but it seams it would really increase chances of getting in to do early arrival.
