It varies. Mine showed up about 2 weeks after I requested it about a year ago.

Mine took about 4 weeks last Fall. A friend just got his after two months. I'm not sure, but it may help to have a Gmail account when you apply. Can't hurt.

If your a student with an email that ends in .edu apparently you can get an invite in 24 hours. ... -with-edu/

If you have a friend that has GV see if they have an invite they can pass on to you.

I just got the invitation today; took about 3.5 weeks with a gmail addy. I requested another one a few days later with live addy and got the invite today as well (precisely 3 weeks). My guess is that they do these in batches. Having gmail addy didn't necessarily speed up things.
