I am a little ticked off at the lady at the CA BRN that I spoke to today. I was calling to see if I could get an update about my IP as almost all of my classmates have recieved theirs already. What I got was a lecture about how it takes 4-6 weeks from the time they process my application until I get it. According to my instructors, it should be about 2 weeks. I finally was sick of getting lectured and said thank you and hung up. I understand they are understaffed and all, but I just wanted to make sure they weren't missing anything. Grrr...

Get used to the CA-BRN, they are not the most helpful all the time. But if you are legitimatly missing information you will notice a very different tone of voice from them. They actually lost my fingerprints and they had to do a lot of leg work to get me cleared without me having to redo my fingerprints but they were actually very halpful when I needed them to be. But, don't plan on getting any information about your testing results because it is a waste of your time, they will not even give you a hint.
Good luck, I am sure your IP will come soon. They actually get assigned to different people based on the alphebet and it really depends whose desk you end up on..

Thanks for the encouragement, Yvonne. I called them again today and they told me my application hadn't been processed yet. I asked for the name of the lady who was processing it at a friend's suggestion. I am going to try calling her next week. My friend who suggested this got ahold of the lady who was processing them and found out her application was overlooked. I hope that hasn't happened to me....
