The twelve months is from the time you turn in the application. It took four months from the time I began the process to the date they gave me to turn in the application. I'm not sure how much more backed up they are with new applications, but it could easily be five months before you have to to turn your app in. On the other hand, you don't want to get an early interview date and be rejected for having 11 months residency instead of twelve and then have to start all over.
If it were me, I would pick up the app now, wait a month and then call to set an interview date.
