Hi Everyone,

After endless paperwork and that awful licensing exam, I'm waiting on the State Bureau to issue me a license number. A colleague of mine who took the exam with me on the same day and submitted his reports and materials to the bureau on the same day has already found out that he got licensed. His number was issued this past Monday. He looked up his name in the "Find An Appraiser" function and up popped his name with a number next to it. Me? Nothing, no number, well nothing yet at least.

I called up the Bureau contact and the guy said there's nothing flagged and I haven't been called for questions on my reports. He said it was likely I got a "slow reviewer" for my reports. Just my luck, after all this hell of trying to pass the exam and finally passing it (took two tries for me, I'm a horrible test taker) I have to wait even more to get the license and be done. Just want to be done with all this and be licensed already.

So, what is the average time frame for any of you out there? Has this happened to you and is checking the website multiple times a day to see if my name comes up a good idea? :p

Thanks :-/

It won't speed things up any. :peace:

No answer for you, but they have been quicker with renewals the last couple times than they were a few years ago.
Good luck with it.
