For some of us that have just commenced documents reviewing at NVC, even if our case becomes current, we have to wait for case completion, before interview scheduling, August fliers and early September fliers, May is your month. Good to us all

I am certain you would get an Interview letter by the end of the month or 1st week in April. Once scheduling starts, you should call. Good luck.

No need to be worried, MAy or June, it is almost same thing, some have many more months to wait, we can only be patient. September is not too far from August, my priority date is remaining 8 weeks to be current, I do not think it is too much, with January 2014 fliers getting AOS invoiced their priority dates are close as well. Relax a little bit. We are almost there. A French adage goes like this Petit à petit, loiseau fait son nid ( LITTLE BY LITTLE THE BIRD MAKES ITS NEST) . Cheers.
