have also applied for advance due to either
1) advanced age
2) terminal illness
3) financial hardship
So there really is no way to provide any answer that is
anything more than speculation.

What I have been hearing at all levels, RO, BVA, U.S. court, etc. is that everyone is doing hardship, congress pushes, etc. So when it boils down to it everyone is really in the same long order. What is your BVA docket date? I had a BVA docket date of July 2006 and they made a decision on March 2008. I'm sure you don't want to hear this but I'm just being honest.

The BVA already granted my application to advance it on the docket while I was at the BVA hearing.
Does that mean it goes to the front of the pile but behind the other claims that have already been granted an advance on the docket?
I know it may only be speculation but has anyone else heard how long claims take at the BVA once there is an advance on the docket?
It means you start out at the bottom of the pile that has been granted an advance on the docket.
What is the hardship your advancement was granted for ? That plays a role in things also.
My speculation is since you've already had your BVA Hearing and advancement was granted - you may hear something in the next 3-36 months.
It will depend alot on what reason advancement was granted for.
