It will take about 3 to 4 months minimum and any requests for expediting the same may not be successful.You can check with the university and it should not be a problem to commence your classes, or if they insist you need to request for deferring your admission.

How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

How much time is spent nationally filling out job applications?
I don’t know about nationally, but i personally spend close to an hour per application, including tailoring a cover letter and resume for each specific position.For example, Liberty Mutual application might take a bit longer because of the different assessments integrated into the application. Other Fortune-500 companies might have psychological or problem solving assessments as well.As a recent graduate, i filled out 250+ applications, and received only 1 interview. Therefore, around 250 hours are wasted only on applications. (I spend 100+ hours to write a compelling resume and 50+ hours for a generic cover letter, which i later tailor to each position).Total: 400+ hours. If i spend 6 hours per day applying, then i wasted around 70 days. ( I haven’t found a job yet )I truly believe that if you run a regression model, then you will see that there is a positive correlation between the number of hours spent on job search and School Rankings. Better School = Less Hours RequiredBackground: Non-target 3.95+ GPA, Major: Finance, solid extracurriculars, good internships. My generic CV and CL were checked by industry professionals, so i don’t think it is the issue. The Issue is a non-target school and stiff competition in Boston area. I feel that at this point it is useless to apply without having a connection or referral in the company.
