Default TSA Background Checks for Non-US Citizens

Hey Guys:

Anyone know generally how long it takes from the time of fingerprint submission to approval by the TSA for background checks for airplanes over 12,500 lbs?

March 5th is the class date, and I need to get it done before that date.

Website says 5-7 business days.. Do not send fingerprints until you have prelimenary approval and instructions from TSA

If your fingerprints are already in the system from previous type rating and sim classes and have submitted a new application, does it take as long and does someone have to resubmit their prints again?
