They should be able to tell you at the interview if you are approved or not. Explain to the interviewer that your father has just passed away and you need to travel to the Philippines as soon as you can make travel arrangements to attend the funeral. If your AOS is approved, ask the interviewing officer to put the I-551 stamp in your passport - that is basically the same as the green card and will allow you to return to the US the same as the actual 'green card' would do. Bring along proof of your father's passing as evidence for the emergency. If you do not receive a decision right away you can still travel with an Advance Parole - if you don't have one, you can apply right away for an emergency AP. Again, you will need to bring proof of your father's passing.

Good luck at your interview, and again, I am very sorry about your father's passing.
