I received my e-mail from the 3rd Dept. confirming the receipt of my application on December 8th. They told me that January 18th was obviously entirely full already and that I more than likely would not be admitted until later this year. They currently have a backlog of 8-10 weeks according to the lady I spoke to. So guess now I get to play the waiting game. Unfortunate because I need to be sworn in by early summer at the latest.
Whoa. Can anyone else confirm or deny this? She told you she didn’t think you’d get sworn in until later this year? I find that hard to believe (not that you’re lying, but I don’t think she knows what she’s talking about). When I called, they said there is no way to know how many apps they have to review, or how long it will take. I submitted mine on December 18—I can’t imagine it’ll take 6+ months to get sworn in. Unless by “later this year” she meant something like July? Anyway, would like to get a second opinion (or actual facts).
