well, according to VJ timelines, TSC is currently working on January cases.

 

You'll probably have another 2-3 months...  then again, expect no less than 5-6 months.

I totally understand, been there :)

Once this stage is done with, the next will be alot quick. Therefore, in the meantime while you wait, it's suggested that you gather all your documents or do more research on what the next stage will require.

Time flies, and before you know it, it'll be done and over with soon!
