How long will I have to wait to get into a co-op?

Because co-op waiting lists are long, the wait to meet with a co-op for an interview after applying could range from at least three months to three years or longer. Some co-ops are not even accepting applications for their waiting lists. Those hoping to pay less than full housing charges (and qualify for a subsidy) will usually have a longer wait than those able to pay the full charges.
