I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at United Technologies in March 2013.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process tends to be extremely long at UTC. I went through three interviews that were spaced out almost one to two weeks apart, and then didn't start until about three weeks after that. This could only apply to internships.

It will give you a great advantage and they will be very impressed.
