I just had my biometrics...I think the next step is for your EAD to be approved (and AP if you filed that also)...Once approved it will be mailed to you, then another wait for Interview (some people receive one some don't depends on which office has your case if transferred)...if no interview then your AOS case will be approved and greencard mailed.

It depends, it's not the same for everybody. Some people get transferred to the California Service Center (CSC), and then are usually approved without an interview. Other cases are transferred to the local office for interview. Nobody knows how they choose who gets transferred where, it's the luck of the draw. It's like playing lotto, except that we all win in the end, but some have an easier and quicker time with it. good.gif

The common denominator is that we all wait until we hear something.
