Issue with Membership + BuddyPress


So I'm just about done getting our site setup to use Membership and BuddyPress to create an online learning facility. The only problem I have (or can see right now) is that when I purchased a test subscription using Membership, it did not give me access to the BuddyPress group that was specified in the membership/subscription settings that I established.

Anyone else experience this issue? Or maybe I'm just overlooking a setting. Any light that can be shed, I would appreciate it! If you want to see the system in action yourself, let me know and I can send the link(s) and/or setup access as needed.
