Hi everyone!

Just a tip that might be helpful on your interview.

Last tuesday, Sept. 29, I had my interview for my greencard together with my husband. The first thing the officer told me was my medical files were incomplete. In the I-693 form that we submitted, only the vaccination portion were filed out and the other physical exam were blank. Which was what we really did becuase it was said in the instructions that if you had your medical exam abroad within the last 1 year it was still valid. I had my full medical exam back in manila last april for my k3 and thats the reason why we didn't do the whole physical exam again here when we filed for AOS. My husband pointed this out and told the officer that I had my medical already back in manila and the files should be in the packet I gave to immigration when I entered here last May. The officer was so insistent that the files were not there with him, and even told us that he can't process my green card with an incomplete medical. But my husband was still arguing with him that the whole packet that the immigration should have delivered to them should contain the files from St. Lukes Medical. We didn't receive any RFE prior to our interview. The officer checked on the folder he was holding on to and found it. Tsk Tsk Tsk..he didn't check all the files in that folder before he started to interview us. After that he didn't ask further questions and just stamped APPROVED! Nice!

We should really be familiar with all these things, read carefully all instructions in all the forms, all the NOAs they send. It is very important for us to be knowledgeable about this and just not show them that we don't know anything and just follow in whatever they say.

Hope this could help you in your future interview! Goodluck to all!

The officer at our interview did not review our file before the interview either. That seems to be the norm.
