It is very straigtforward. Once your number gets called, your ID will be checked, then your fingerprints will be taken electronically and your photo will be taken. Then you are out of there!! Your EAD card should arrive a few days later.

Just a word of warning...dont count on getting your EAD a few days later at all. I had my Biometrics done on April 5th and nothing more has happened since then. It is more based on how long after the AOS was submitted than when the biometrics are taken. I see you only submitted your AOS fairly recently so dont be expecting your EAD too soon. Who knows you might be really lucky but that doesnt seem to be the normal order of things

bring your NOAs, your ID and marriage certificate if there has been a name change.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
