Default Will I get my PTAL in time?

Hi I passed CS and sent the transcripts and the certification status report to the medical board of California in June. How long will it take for me to get the PTAL? Everything else is complete.

Hi wa90. I'm also in same boat. Can you tell me how long it took for you to get yours? I have sent all docs in but online my status shows pending. How long will it take for the status to change etc. Thanks!

Hi.
I got mine within 20 days of submitting everything.
I am not sure about the online status because once I received the PTAL it still said pending.
Good luck

My case analyst has been only replying with std replies like "please wait 45-60 days". I applied online. I mailed in notarized L1F (just one sheet as asked by online instructions). Do I have to submit L1A Thru L1E as well ? Do you recall what all items you mailed in?

Thanks

Hey
I filled the application online too.
And sent the L1F form by mail.
You don't need to send the L1A - L1E by mail.. That's the same thing as online application.
