How much longer than a month? Up to 5 weeks or so seems fairly typical, but if it's longer than that, I might give them a call.

A few people have reported completion delays due to not sending in a Dean's Certificate to accompany a C&F disclosure from something in UG-if that applies to you and you didn't submit a Dean's Certificate with your application, that could be holding things up.

feeney, no need to panic. There are people well above both 75ths with significantly earlier complete dates than us (I'm 1/8) still waiting.

It'll be 5 weeks in a couple of days. So, I'll wait another week or so. Thanks!
