I made it a point to give them 6 months to review an application and just mark it on my calendar to call if it gets to that point without a response-and then get on with life.

jesusita I'm just curious if you turned in an online application or a traditional packet. I applied for my license electronically on January 12 and sent my fingerprint card on the same day. I can go online and check the status of my application. So far it lists my license as "in progress" but my fingerprint requirement has been met. So it looks like it took...See More
