After calling to check on approval, spoke to a very nice person who was on the learning curve. Apparently they were inundated around the 13th 14th of this month (Suspect this forum may be the culprit). But they are trying to get the process going. Was reminded that acceptance notice does state 4 weeks possible, so hold tight. The link in that message that is supposed to check status does not work and is a known problem. So, patience, grasshopper.
