It took me 12 weeks to get to QC Verified. My application changed from submitted, to QC verified, to approved all in a single day. That was last Wednesday. I am still waiting to go Active which based on other posts in this thread should be any day now. Good news is that I will have gained a little over 2 months on my expiration. My original license expired 2/28. When mine goes active it will be at least 4/29 if not a few days later. I am also in the process of renewing my Global Entry from TSA. This process is now very back logged now as well due to the federal shutdown. Renewals were generally a few weeks but now they are taking a couple of months. I suspect those will catch up though and return to the more normal processing times once they get through the backlog.
