Both service centers work in intervals,sometimes one is fast,and then the other catches up and takes over.

When we applied back in Nov, VSC was super fast,churning out those NOA2s in a month!! And we all thought we would be lucky as well,but we ended up waiting 4 months.Now CSC is appearing fast but you never know when the tide will change.

Just have to wait and good luck !!

A good thing is also not to compare or check CSC related threads since there is nothing you can do about that. Based on the Immigration Timeline infos and that particular graph showing the average time from NOA1 and NOA2, it looks like VSC is catching up and speeds up a bit...

Good luck!

3 months ? That's a godsend. I'd say anywhere from 150 to 180 days.

If it's faster, that's a blessing.

Well if you look at the areas the Vermont Service Center Covers its a little understandable. Oh and this touched thing everyone does. What is that? Well I know that it meens that the paperwork has more or less been moved. But how are you recieving these so called touches...lets just say that its been all most 60 days and not even a touch haha..I guess that could be good or bad.

But yes the Vermont Service center is slower then the California one but it used to be vice versa a few years ago.
