So I have capped out my 10hr/week and earned my first 150$ on this website. Do I need to wait till 24th of may (3rd week Wednesday) or do I get it earlier. I'm a bit confused about that whole system since I don't see why I gotta wait so long. I rented an apartment so I kinda need the money earlier if possible. Is there any way I can take my money once my client has reviewed my work in the 2nd week, instead of waiting a week and 3 more days for it? Thank you.
Can't 'expedite' the review period, it ends at Friday.
Top rated people get the money immediately after the review period ends.

That's just the way it is. I freelance independently most of the time, and I think I can understand. Some clients pay immediately, some other cannot pay for any freelancer expense until the next accounting month. Upwork's reason is different, but okay.
The client has from Monday afternoon until Thursday to review your work. Payment goes through after the review period and becomes available to most the following Tuesday/ Wednesday, depending on your time zone. Please read up on how you get paid in the Terms of Service.
