    So i bought the ADC package, and they charged my credit card. They asked me to fax over my enrollment, but it has been several days and they still have not activated my account.

    How long does it usually take to activate the account?

    Can I cancel the purchase if they don't activate it?

    It took me less than 2 days. The trick is to not fax them(who the hell uses fax anyway? that's so 1990's). Instead, just scan your documents and email them to devprograms@apple.com like i did. I simply scanned my license(photo ID) and pasted in a class schedule, and that was it. I was credited with the hardware discount and got $500 off my 17" mbp.

    If you call the developer number you can get them to speed things up. I had a friendly lady answer. I told her I had emailed a jpg with my ID and schedule scanned. She looked for it while I was on the line and immediately activated my account. Took less than a few minutes.

    if they don't activate the account do they give you refund? lets say your timetable does not fit their required classes
