Default credentials verified

Maybe it is bad timing due to the match application season, but it's been over 10 weeks now, and nothing has changed on my OASIS page. The poll also states that, in relatively large proportion of cases, credential verification can take 3 months or longer. It's frustrating, because I have already passed steps 1, 2ck and 2cs. But what else can I do, other that hang in there? Good luck to yo all, guys. Best.
Just a brief update, my credentials were verified yesterday - approx. 3 months after being received.
