    old-timers / previous adc-student buyers:

    in your experience:

    1. how long does it take to receive the following for ADC-student: "an Activation Code via email"?

    2. how long does it take after I have faxed the necessary documents (which I have already prepared) to actually activate my membership to actually make the hardware purchase?

    thanks a bunch

    Do you actually have to use the ADC membership-or can you use it just as a means of getting a discount on a mac? I.E. do you have to verify that you are a developer/actually use their tools? It says that your computer can only be used for development-what does this mean exactly, and what info did you have to send them?

    I believe it took me 24-48 hours. Bought the item online, got a verification code and then faxed them my documentation. After faxing them my documentation it took one day.

    Sorry, its been so long that I don't recall, but I do remember it was rather fast. You do not have to wait for the package to come for it to be effective.


    You just have to prove you are in college, not how you will use the computer.

    definitly took me under 5 business days and i wanna say for sure under 3 as well as long as you fax that day or the next.

    EDIT:
    Looking at my archived emails it appears the whole process took about a day.

    I'm not an ADC student member but as far as I'm aware, once you've received the activation details you can order over the phone by explaining the situation to them.
