I'm posting this here because the Timeline makes it difficult to determine wait time on full requests after a partial.

Query: 5/2
Partial request: 5/7
Full Request: 7/24
Full Request sent after revisions: 8/1
Nudge: 11/20

Waiting on reply. I had a hard time determining typical wait time after a full, so I will update when I hear.

From the comments below I'm seeing
1 three month wait
2 one month wait
1 four month wait that ended in an offer of rep
