You have no reason to worry at this stage.Sure, it takes a relatively short time to have a student visa issued after submitting all the required documentation (a week or so I'm told), but there are numerous steps before that:- Receive acceptance letter from school- Send statement of financial responsibility to school- School to issue I-20- Schedule, and interview with US embassy / complete and submit required documentationConsidering that it took about a month to receive my I-20 from my second choice school (no delay on my part sending financial responsibility statement), I think 2 months in a realistic time frame, allowing for unforeseen delays as well (remember a lot of the above steps are beyond your control). In addition, I don't want to arrive in the US the day before orientation starts (a few weeks before would be ideal), plus it is a busy time for the US embassy issuing visas, with lots of summer students applying. So I think I should be worrying at this stage.
