    Anyone have any idea what might have changed? Could this have anything to do with MSP looking into some shady instructors? Some apps getting set aside maybe?

    No one here has admitted to working for the licensing folks, so we don't have any direct intelligence. We can only look at the data and speculate. So lots of ideas. No way of knowing if any of those ideas are right, thoughl

    The dates today threw me off big time but got me excited to possibly see my wait time cut in half.
    Maybe the new hires finished all their training videos and are approving? lmao

    **Pure Speculation**
    If we keep seeing several different acceptance days getting approved, maybe MSP has started assigning all applications accepted on a certain day to a single individual.
    One reviewer gets all the 8/6s, another gets all 8/7s, and so on down the line.
    Individual days will take longer to get through, but you can be working on several dates at once. Again, just a thought.

    I was getting ready to post the same speculation. Instead of all the investigators working on the same accepted date maybe they assign one investigator to one accepted date. As good a guess as any other at this point. Although I don't see how dividing the same amount of work differently between the same amount of people will speed things up.

    If that is what is happening it looks like there are 6 investigators (six dates) working on approvals.

    Not a word since.. nadda

    Needless to say it gets a little frustrating seeing others with dates after mine getting approved already after all this time following this with MSP only going in order by accepted date.

    Be interesting to see with yours...I think we are pretty much on the same time line:

    Submitted 8/1
    Accepted 8/8
    NICS 9/16 (Also received email that it was assigned an investigator that day)

    Nothing else at this point. Interesting to hear some with 8/9 and 8/10 accepted are getting their approvals. My guess is its just a slight difference in the speed that the individual investigators are processing the applications they have been assigned.

    My father in law applied the same day as me but roughly 10 hours later. His NICS was assigned 2 days after mine. We have the same 8/2 submitted and 8/9 accepted. He was approved yesterday so MSP's "order in which they are received" is now out the window.

    I never got any email saying NICS was done or investigator assignment or anything.
    I've gotten a total of 2 emails. One was submitted and other was accepted.

    You don’t get an email for NICS completion and only sometimes for investigator assignment
