Congratulations Nameless! From previous years' threads it seems like that GAO's approval is a formality and they merely look into basic entry requirements like english language and minimum level of funding required by the candidate in addition to fees.
Guys, so far we have one instance of movement and one rejection. Any other updates?
For what it is worth, my LLM application status has changed to "Awaiting approval by GAO", which probably happened on Friday (assuming they have not been working weekends). So it looks like they have started to progress some LLM applications. Best of luck to all!
