Well if you want it you should apply, there is nothing else you can do to improve your chances and you have nothing to lose.
You cannot change your race, you have already crossed the "assumed" minimum reqd residential period and you already earn a lot more than most.

The only reason you "could" get rejected is if the fact that you didnt apply all this while weighs higher than your credentials.

Not saying that its true but it might appear to the evaluating officers or anybody for that matter that you are doing this to save the ABSS on your next condo purchase :twisted:

Thanks mate.

Please can you explain this 'your race weighs higher than your credentials'?

Pls ignore this.

On another note - what is the typical turn-around/processing time for PR applications these days?

Can't say. We've heard reports of several weeks to several months just in the past year.
