Which background check form for USAO internships?

Former USAO interns -- what form were you required to fill out for your security clearance? SF-85, SF-85P, or SF-86? Or something else?

It would be helpful to let me know when and where you interned.

Thanks!

I don't remember, but this has been covered endlessly. Search this forum for the various forms and you'll find it.

I have searched, but unfortunately the answers are neither recent (figured these things might change from time to time) nor consistent.

Hmm so it seems like it might vary by office?

This definitely varies by office/district. I know from experience and the relevant people.

Did a 1L internship in a large-ish metro area (not CA/NY), and I had to do the SF-85 + supplemental questions that basically made it look like the SF-86. I also had to take a drug test FWIW.
