The board is very slow. It took them 3 months just to process my MD license. I didn't apply for the temporary though. They kept telling me that the criminal background check is what holds it up. Plus when you call the board, you never get through to a live person. you leave messages and they hardly ever respond.
When i went to the board's office, they said it's done the same day. I already had my fingerprinting done(with results). the permanent license takes forever. don't call/e-mail them. go to the office in person. it's the only way you can get anything done on time at MBON.
