I submitted an application to the NYC REC for an increase in scope right around the time that the government shutdown ended. It has been nearly two weeks, and I have not received so much as the standard email indicating that they are processing my application. No application ID or anything. I’ve called to confirm that the application did make it into the right inbox, which was confirmed, but no progress beyond that. I was planning to use the fact that I am available to take the celestial upgrade exam at the NYC REC, but this delay is starting to interfere with that plan.
Any other data points out there from people who have submitted applications to the NYC REC and have or have not made progress in the last couple of weeks or during the shutdown?
What about other RECs? Wondering if I should apply to a different location if there is a less of a backlog.
Thanks for any insight.
