It takes at least a month, or it did the 3 times I got matched to hear from her. Twice it was much longer as she called me after what I suspected to be a situation where other people either didn't return thier paper work in time or they changed thier mind. AS far as how long it takes, it all depends on how picky you are in your selections. There are always a couple of really good sounding ones that I suspect the people on the top of the list grab. But if you have an open mind and keep the thought "would I turn away this baby if someone left it on my door step?" you can get matched quickly, three out of the four lists I made selections from I got matched despite being #50, #26 and not sure about the last time.
