Topic: EB2-NIW Texas (any receipt date)

Very few people submit EB1 and EB2, let alone simultaneously. Most people, when they do submit both, first submit EB1 and only after they fail they try EB2. Or, if they're from India/China, they submit EB1 after getting an approved EB2 to see if they can get the EB1 approved as well and not have to wait years.

There were 4 cases filed on 2/14/18, and 3 cases filed on 2/16/18 (all from VC), that got approved in 3-6 weeks. I find it highly unlikely that all those applications, submitted on the same dates, were simultaneous EB1/EB2 applicants.

In the last V Chen update (today) there were no approvals for NIW cases at TSC. I'm taking that as good sign. Since VC cases were getting approved so fast while the rest of us got neglected, hopefully now TSC stopped working on their cases and is analyzing ours.

Topic: Sent EAD extension w/o knowing greencard is approved

Best case scenario: USCIS will reject your I-765 form, and return your package along with your check.

Worst case scenario: USCIS will accept your I-765 form, cash your check, then deny your application because your green card is already approved.

Either way, it won’t affect your already approved green card. It’s only a question of whether you’re gonna lose $$$ or not.

It’s not a bug. It’s the cut off date for being able to make an inquiry about your case. Currently it’s advancing one day each day, likely because the number of incoming applications has been steady. If they got a spike in applications, it would probably slow down.

If your receipt date is October 2nd, you can already raise a service request if you haven’t heard anything about your case, since the case inquiry date today is already past your RD.

Topic: EB2-NIW Nebraska (any receipt date)

Sounds like fear-mongering. Many people have already talked about their interview experience here, and I never read anything like that. Also, publications don't always come at a steady pace. A postdoc may go 2 or 3 years without any publications, then have multiple publications come out in a short amount of time.

Finally, USCIS said when they announced the new interview requirement for EBs: IOs are not supposed to re-adjudicate the I-140 during the interview. The point of the interview is to detect fraud, not to re-evaluate if someone is worthy of NIW. That judgment has already been made by the officer at the service center.

Topic: EB2-NIW Nebraska (any receipt date)

Using VC's data to estimate processing times assumes that VC cases are representative of the whole. In Texas, the situation is actually reversed: processing times for VC cases (median is 3.6 months based on all approvals since January) is shorter than the time given by USCIS (5 to 7 months). Which makes this even more strange...

Someone suggested that VC cases are processed faster because they're picky with the clients they accept, plus they are very good in putting together a strong petition. But if that were the case, one would expect that VC cases at Nebraska would also be faster than the average. Something very weird is happening with VC cases in Texas. They've had multiple recent cases approved in one month or less!

NIW means “national interest waiver”. There is only EB2-NIW. EB1-NIW does not exist. What does exist is EB1A (extraordinary ability) and EB1B (outstanding researcher). Those 2 categories indeed allow premium processing. But the cases I posted are for EB2-NIW, which DOES NOT have the premium processing option. You can verify yourself at the VC website.

These are all EB2-NIW cases. There is no “EB1-NIW” category. And premium processing is not available for EB2-NIW.

But hey, who needs premium processing when you can file with VC. It costs $6000, but TSC will look at your case super fast, skipping ahead of all the suckers in line who filed on their own, like me.

VC just posted a TON of new approvals for NIW cases at TSC. Most from cases filed in November/December 2017, even some from cases filed in February 2018.

Anyone else who filed in October or earlier still waiting? My online status still says "case received". No RFE, nothing. So depressing...

I don't understand why they put an SOC code at all in your petition. You were a PhD student at the time of filing, why did they even fill out the "Proposed Employment" part of the I-140? A lot of their own cases, according to the approvals they post, do not have an SOC code.

The last 2 or 3 series of approvals posted on the VC website did not have a single EB2-NIW TSC case. They just uploaded some more this afternoon, and now there are EB2-NIW cases from TSC again. While there are a couple from November and December, there are also some from earlier (October and July), so there's hope they're going back to the cases that seemed forgotten, like ours.

According to the new USCIS processing time page, the median processing time for NIW cases at TSC is 5 months (the lower bound of their range). Yet, the median processing time for VC cases based on approvals from February and March (169 cases, so it's a pretty decent sample size) is 3.5 months. How is that possible?

Latest VC data. WTF? The vast majority of the approvals now are from November. Did they lose all the other cases from October?

Topic: EB2-NIW Texas (any receipt date)

So many approvals from specific dates. It seems that cases are grouped according to the date on which they are received... except that they don't process them in that order. They seem to just grab cases from a random date and process them. Look at those approvals from cases received on Feb 14, 2018. In the meantime, some of us that submitted many months ago are still waiting.

We pay those insanely high application fees and we get the worst possible service. I understand that green cards should be awarded based on immigration laws and USCIS regulations, and I respect that. But we do pay a fee and at least they should be able to provide us with service that is minimally decent, not the chaos that we see. No transparency, no accountability, no real feedback, no respect for those that have been in line longer.

Did each e-mail message include the case numbers?

I also have four cases on my account: two that should be finished processing since they were already approved and issued 2 months ago (I-131/I-765) and two that are still pending (I-140/I-485). But I only got one e-mail message, and it doesn't say which case it is about.

You looked at the wrong category. If you click on the "+ Read More" link, you will see the full table, which shows that the estimated time range for NIW processing at TSC is 5 to 7 months.

According to USCIS, the lower number (5 months) reflects the processing time for 50% of the cases, and the upper limit (7 months) is the time under which 93% of cases are being approved.

The specific date given in the last column is the "case inquiry date", which is not the processing date but the date to be used when determining whether you can raise a service request. If your receipt date is before that date, then you can inquire about your case through a SR. According to USCIS, that date on the last column (currently Sept. 11, 2017) is calculated based on the upper range of the estimated processing time (7 month). Today's date minus the case inquiry date is roughly 7 months (197 days or ~6.5 months), so close enough.
