    The only reason I can think of for readjudicating an SSBI is when the original clearance did not involve SCI eligibility and the new one does. Are you being considered for SCI eligibility?

    When an investigation is readjudicated for SCI eligibility, they use the existing investigation and do not initiate any new investigative action. Also when an investigation is readjudicated, they aren’t suppose to ask for a new SF86.

  4. I’m currently a college sophomore applying for a clearance for an internship in the summer of 2009.

    Would sharing an apartment with an Indian born permanent resident be a disqualifier? Will it raise eyebrows.

  5. Tom:
    Your non-US citizen apartment sharer should not be a problem for a clearance, unless your relationship involves obligation, affection, or loyalty or you live in a spouse-like relationship.
