Early Biometrics

I know that some people have their biometrics done early than originally scheduled. Now, I want to give it a try, is it a good idea? Experiences?

I did it even in a different ASC but that's because military fam. members can do that. Didn't speed up my processing as it's been over a month and I still don't have the interview scheduled.

If you have already scheduled bio appt go to the ASC and try to get in - the worst they can say is no.

By the way, click only once to post a topic - any more and you get what you get - 3 identical topics. I alerted the mod to delete the other two.

The site froze for a moment and then I tried to refresh it, but instead I created two more of them. Want to delete them myself, but don't know how :). Sorry.

Anyway, thanks for the reply!

I did mine early in Detroit. There were only like 2 people there and the officers didn't give me any trouble about doing it early. Its worth a shot...the worst they could do is say no. FYI, I went at 2pm, so if I were you I wouldnt go in the morning as they are very busy.

Just got back from ASC and biometrics is now done. There was only one person before me so then I was allowed to do it today. Can't go next week due to time conflicts with other stuff.

Triplicate threads removed - it's nice to know what happened, thanks!
