This leads me to another question. What are the chances of me even getting in? I applied when the site for the beta applications went up, and this was before I knew about the Square-Enix ID needing to be linked to the PlayOnline ID. I had linked my POL and SE IDs the day before VanaFest when I learned about the feature.
Would this end up shutting me out of the community beta?
If so, that is going to be a ******** :(
Edit: I also may have accidentally submitted the application twice during the beta application site's launch, 'cause it was getting REALLY hammered. I am concerned that this may invalidate my application.

Submitting twice should not be an issue. I accidentally did the same myself because I couldn't remember if I had sent one in, and you get a message stating that they already have an application on file for that email or something to that regard. If anything, they'll be on the lookout for grossly repeated applications from alternate emails or whatever, anyway.
Your odds of getting in at some point are probably good, as word is that SE wants to get everyone who applied in at some point. Now, that could mean you get in a couple weeks, or 1 week before the game's release. There's no controlling it. But the chances of getting in right now are slim to none.
