I received the approval email today and that it right at the 7 week mark. A number of people on CISSP's subreddit have been reporting about a 7 week wait as well. So hopefully you don't have too much longer!
I remember when my email from ISC2 came. I saw the notification pop-up and then debated if I should open it then (at 10:00 in the morning) or wait until I got off that day at 4:30. If it is bad news then that would mean I would have to sulk around the office being sad all day. If I had passed then I could be jubilant the rest of the day. I took about 5 minutes of hemming and hawing deciding if I should open it or wait. Finally I said "Who am I kidding? I want to know!"
So I opened up the email.
Slowly I scrolled down.....
Someone told me, "If you see a score, that's bad. They will tell you your score if you fail so you can see how close or how far you were. If you pass they don't tell you your score."
I was sweating and hoping not to see a score.
Finally I saw these words....
I jumped up out of my chair with so much excitement that I kicked over a trash can under my desk and people came running to see if everything was alright, it was so loud.
When I took the CCSP last year I knew when I walked around to the test proctors desk and he handed me a single sheet of paper that I passed. Well I assumed I passed. I figured if I would have failed they would have told me the areas I needed to work on, and surely that would have been more than a page's worth. I flipped the paper over and read the Congratulations message.
