Followed up again 6/25, was told that "Your application was sent to the June 11th review meeting. However, no decision was made at that time. I will contact you when more information becomes available."

Thoughts??? If they have their meetings the second Tuesday of the month, maybe there is hope I will hear something very soon since that's today?
Let's hope. I'm expecting a response as well.

My timeline so far:

Mailed application: 7/19
Acknowledgement email and letter, with request for transcript: 7/26

Also, does anybody know of a source (or just have a general sense) for salary range for a new EA? In the NY metro area, if that makes a difference.

Last I checked, DW Simpson doesn't publish anything in their salary survey specifically for EA without ASA. My current company has always paid on the very low end of the salary range, and i'm not expecting a very good percentile when I get my EA, so i'm looking to gather some ammunition while I wait for my approval.

Timeline update:
Sent in my application early February
Sent SOA transcript 2/19
Actuary at my old firm returned his form in March
Actuary/current supervisor's form got lost, he returned his replacement form in April
Asked contact at IRS for an update on 6/11, was told my application was scheduled for review at the meeting to be held that day
Followed up again 6/25, was told that "Your application was sent to the June 11th review meeting. However, no decision was made at that time. I will contact you when more information becomes available."
Request for additional info 7/23. Have not had a chance to respond.

Re: the salary question, I have heard 90-95k for a new EA. I am in Northeast Ohio so adjust accordingly.
