I actually got my FBI check before I submitted my application (end July) thinking that I would get the statutory declarations fast. HA! That wasn't nearly as easy as I thought. The first couple of people who said they'd be glad to write one, never did. And of course, I waited to submit until I had everything in hand.
I didn't use a channeler as at the time I submitted for the FBI check it was still a 4 week wait. Right after I got mine back it stretched out the the 12 weeks+ wait.
The CO was gracious enough to grant me until October to enter the country.......tho we are going to be back mid-June.
