To be honest, I'm not entirely positive. I went UR in early/mid December (when they finally started reviewing apps) and was accepted the week before Christmas. I'll check the dates (yay for the status checker app, since that saves them) and let you know when I am on my personal computer later.
The reason I'm posting now, however, is to say that I wouldn't use the December times to gauge the turnaround for now. At the open house I attended this past fall, they said that the only had about a hundred applications so far, meaning they did not have many to get through in December, but that this is typical and they usually have an influx following the holiday and that slows down their turnaround time. (This is all loose paraphrasing, since it didn't really affect me anymore, having already turned it in back in October.)
That said, I wouldn't expect it to take terribly long, since the December test takers haven't submitted/gone under review yet. I would still expect a small application pool and relatively quick turnaround - just maybe not a week.
