what say people? I haven't got any response yet from ICO and PCO. how long do they take usually to respond once you have submitted the application?

Well, anyone who is applying for this cycle and has yet to receive any interviews is unlikely to be accepted.

I submitted my optomcas application feb 4. ICO sent me an email saying I got selected to fill out the supplemental application about -10 days later. I submitted that right away by snail mail and received my interview invite via e-mail as well on march 2.

well, I applied very late in the cycle but I don't want to lose hope. though I can't stop thinking about not being accepted. wasting a year is something I really don't want to do at all. well I guess I will wait couple more days and then call them.

i think PCO usually sends out something stating things that may be missing from your file. even though some of them actually aren't in some cases. try calling them, last time i called they said they were currently reviewing and I would get a letter to tell me what things that i was missing.
