yeah, 9 or 10.
When I was here in July, they looked carefully at my appointment time before letting me in. I saw some people not being let in I'm assuming because they were too early for their appointment.

They ask for very few copies anymore. I think one copy each of my passport, cedula, and residency card was it.

Check your file regularly to see when it is approved and then select a date.
Actually, once approved, you'll be asked to confirm a date/time that they give you. If you don't like the date/time, request another one. There's no penalty for that. Unless there's a recent change, you cannot select a specific date and time of your choosing.

If you don't have to go home in any hurry, just keep waiting a while. If you do have to go home (which I assume is not in the DR), you can try to tell them and then resume the process next time you are here. A friend of mine did this and although he had to pay a small fine for late renewal it all went through eventually without a hitch.

You have to upload the " police letter " during the 30 day period.

I wouldnt start worrying yet, I renewed in december and the time frame from upload to " acceptance", ie when you get a date to go to DGM was around 3 weeks, give or take.
