I always find it irresponsible of SDCC not to get all badge types (except comps) confirmed before hotels go live. I know they're short-staffed, but hotels are such a nightmare that it's really horrible not to find out you're going until after there are no good hotels left.

So, for anyone trying to guage how long it takes to get a response, CCI received my application on 9/1.  Response was received back today.

That's great, DaveG! I'm so happy for you! In fact, I think that makes you the first person on FoCC with a confirmed badge for next year! ;)

Thanks.  As cool as that would be, I think anyone with pro status who didn't have to reapply would already have a confirmed badge.

Random question: If you applied to be a pro for both SDCC and WonderCon, does anyone know if the approval/denial e-mail includes your status for both? Or do you get two separate e-mails - one per convention?

I believe your status applies to both.  I've never attended WonderCon, but see that I did receive emails notifying me when pro registration for WC was open.  I did not receive a separate approval for WonderCon.

Giving this another second of thought.  I might be the first person to have a confirmed badge for Comic-Con 2019.

Sent mine in on 9/5 9/1, and got approved yesterday 10/19. Joinin' the club with DaveG.

Edit: Double checked, sent mine in on September 1st, not 5th. I remember being locked and loaded  when they opened up submissions.  ;)
