    Weird. My kit just went from 20% to 80%. After nearly 9 weeks at 20%. Hope this is legit.

    if I had known at the time how long it would take, I'd have never bought this kit

Averaging about 15 or 16 days between processing steps...
    Final update: My results came in last night (3/15/2013). Now to figure out how to upload my y-SNPs and mt-SNPs to FTDNA. Tah tah...

    I live in a city that borders Houston, where FTDNA's lab is located. I sent back the Geno 2.0 test kit with my DNA sample at my local post office on Feb. 28. Knowing of earlier problems with delivery of kits to FTDNA, I paid about $1 extra for tracking.

    According to tracking, my kit arrived at the North Houston postal sort facility the night of Feb. 28. It departed the sort facility on March 2. It wasn't delivered to FTDNA's office, probably within 10 miles, until last Friday, March 8. With service like that, it's no wonder the Postal Service is going bankrupt!

    I logged into my Geno 2.0 account and they still have that my kit hasn't been received yet. FTDNA either hasn't logged in my kit as received or there's a delay in Geno 2.0 updating information to my account.

    I just received a status update on my Geno 2.0 test - from 40% complete to 60% on 2/20/2013. So my timeline is: Received (20% complete) 1/15/2013; isolated (40% complete) 1/30/2013; analysis in progress (60% complete) 2/20/2013. It looks like batch steps update on Wednesdays...

    Isolation Stage Complete

    National Geographic sent notice today (January 30, 2013) that my kit had moved from isolation status to the DNA analysis stage. That makes 15 days for isolation - I hope my sample minds its p's and q's from here on!

    Isolation Stage...

    Yeah, I think it must be a period that your sample spends in "the box" until it learns to behave itself.

    I wonder how FTDNA is batching the Geno samples. If they're running Geno batching on an entirely separate basis, that could be part of the reason for the extended inter-stage waits. Either way, it's a lesson in patience...
