We had our interview today, and the officer took my I-94 and stamped my greencard on my passport. The officer said that she's taking it because now am legally in the US or something to that effect. So that should be a good sign. Be optimistic..:)Your green card will be in the mail soon...

They took my husband's on the spot too even though he wasn't approved on the spot. (In his case it did not matter, he had an overstay so it didn't really matter.)

That generally means you are approved, because you have no need for them anymore (GC is coming).

If you were concerned at the interview, why didn't you ask "Why are you taking my EAD?"
