Hi there... We went through the DCF process in Ankara in 2008. There were a few hiccups in the process, but overall it went very quickly. My parents were our co-sponsors as I had been living in Turkey for quite some time and it's difficult to save that much $$ when you're paid in liras! Feel free to PM me if you want to know more.
