    I thought I would start keeping track of the start date when the MSP starts working on approving applications for a particular "acceptance date". Remember the MSP approves many applications that don't show up on this forum, the change could happen at anytime on the date reported and I will ignore the occasional outlier so I will post the date when we see several reports and post the next start date when we get several reports from the next day. Over time you should be able to better estimate how long it will take to get to approving your particular acceptance date.

    8/1 started 9/14 @ 7:07 PM
    8/2 started 9/16 @ 11:06 PM
    8/3 started 9/19 @ 3:30 PM
    8/4 started 9/22 @ 12:40 PM
    8/5 started 9/26 @ 2:00 PM
    8/6 started 9/28 @ 11:00 AM
    It looks like something has changed I will update this when the numbers settle into a pattern.
    8/7 started
    8/8 started
    8/9 started
    8/10 started

    So approximately 5 days of acceptance took 14-15 days to issue approvals.

    So for a rough estimate of when you might see your approval, count the number of days between the acceptance date they are currently approving and the acceptance date of your application and multiply the number of days by 3 and that will be the number of days until you will see the approval +/-.

    For example they are currently working on 8/6 acceptances so if your accepted date is 9/1 then it would be 26 days times 3 equals 78 days until approval. So from today those with acceptance dates of 9/1 can expect their approval on or about December 15th, assuming nothing changes.
    26 days X 3 = 78 days before approval.
