    Studying for the CPA exam is easy. Its like riding a bike. Except the bike is on fire. And the ground is on fire. And everything is on fire. Because you're in H-E Double hockey sticks

    My timeline as I just received my number this morning.

    12/28 Fingerprints submitted
    3/21 All four sections passed along with ethics
    3/21 Sent in application with $250
    4/19 CBA emailed me and said I was missing an hours form
    5/15 Hours form submitted (boss on vacation).
    6/3 CBA asked for criminal conviction disclosure form. Signed and sent in within 10 minutes
    6/3 Got initial licensure request
    6/12 $120 check cashed by CBA
    6/25 Got my license number by email.

    My only piece of advice is if the CBA asks for something, drop everything and do it that second. If you don't, your application will go to the back of the line.

    called CBA this morning and they said they have my initial license fee check ($120) – she said if I don't get the email with the license number in 7 days to call back. This has been a long journey! I was hoping I would get the email sooner but judging by all of your timelines, it may be a week or more. I have found that whenever I call them things do move faster. We'll see!
