DCU MEMBERSHIP & VISA APPROVAL TIME?

I kinda went about the approval process Z to A,  instead of A to Z. When speaking to a rep at DCU, he suggested that I apply for the visa card before apping for the membership just to check out a potential offer. I was approved for the credit card right off but I'm curious to know how long does it take to be approved for the membership? Anyone knows?

Should be pretty quick and instant, I suppose they can't use the same HP for membership eh?

I wish they would but I do see two pulls on my credit report from DCU but from different departments and on the same date. I wonder if they would erase one of those pulls?
