What about you?

It is better to wait than to write to them again and increase the anxiety for a response and outcome. It appears to me they are making some background checks and in my view they do have obligation to prioritize your application since it was lodged close to an Year now. I am quite sure you will hear soon in this month itself with a positive note. Stay positive and I wish you all the best.

Hang in there mate - I remember our 189 friend GUNBUN who had an inordinately long wait, but ultimately got a grant.

Maybe when you're feeling up to it keep calling the hotline and leaving a note - hopefully it ruffles some feathers in a positive way.

At least we aren't caught in the sad case of "Priority Group 5" applicants (don't Google unless you want to get depressed, poor applicants waiting 5-8 years for a grant).

Can't wait to share your joy when you do get the grant.

Hey Pretty, just wanted to ask. Is it normal to not have any sort of contact or commencement even after 165 days?

Hey mate - it seems normal to me, of course there have been faster grants - but you can never know the reasons that led to it being so with so many moving parts and internal DHA resourcing / workflow issues we aren't privy to - 5 months so far seems reasonable judging by their global processing times.

Are you expecting a CO contact for anything? :)

Thanks man! Well, have uploaded absolutely everything that my MARA agent has asked me to! So, not expecting a CO contact! Hoping and praying for a direct grant. Today is the last day on my current job and yesterday I got an offer for a new job! So confused about what to do now :(

No I won't Google [emoji1787]. We sure will meet and celebrate when in CBR. You have been such a support on this forum. Did you get yours? I remember you too are for ACT!

That was a quick turnaround unless you were expecting it!

Take it.. and resign in a blaze of glory when you get your grant :cool:

Kidding, but perhaps a job might be useful to ease the eventual move :)

Yeah for sure lets catch up in CBR, I've been here now 4 years so happy to help share any helpful info :)

I haven't got mine yet - then again I had a CO contact on 1 Dec '18 and responded on 6 Dec '18 - so expecting another 2-4 month wait :fingerscrossed:
