Hi,

I am a 'July 2010 Filer' but no interview for me yet :(

I am getting worried now. Looks like the process was much faster in 2009....

also, it looks like Southern California is taking a longer time on average.

Edited by russviva

7/3/2010 USPS delivered the package

7/12/2010 NOA1 for I-130, NOA2 for I-485 (both MSC#s issued via email/text message on cell)
