I haven't seen anybody mention anything about whether we're suppose to bind the AOS packet? Kind of like we did for the I-129F (small ACCO fastener). The instructions were pretty clear back then. I've seen no mention of it for the AOS.

I'm a few days away from turning our's in.

USCIS says on their site they prefer ACCO fasteners so I'd give them what they want :) I prefer them as well, I know my papers are secure and nothing can accidentally fall out and get lost.
