Ok, I know it's been 2 weeks already since I had my interview but I just didn't have time to stop by and write about my experience. Anyway, my interview was scheduled for September 13th at 1 PM - of course they only let us in at 12:30 PM. Me and Phillip were the first ones from the 1 PM appointment to get to the room, we put the appoint. letter in a wooden box and sat down. By then a lot of couples started arriving and also being called :angry: and me and Phillip were still there! :whistle: After 2 hours Phillip got mad because everybody was beeing called and we were still there and went to ask the man that takes the letters to the officers how was the procedure, like, if whoever gets there first go first or what. Well, the man said he puts the letter at the same table and the officers grab them when they are done with a couple. So, since he puts the letters on the top of those that are already there, our appoint. letter was pretty much at the bottom! No wonder why people were getting there after we did and leavind BEFORE us! Anyway, finally about 2 1/2 hours of waiting, waiting and waiting the officer called us. Thank God he was a really nice one. He asked for our Picture I.D., asked for my Supplemental Form (I-693A), documents in both our names. Then he asked my husband my Mama's first name (which I thought he didn't know since we call her by her middle name, but, SURPRISE!), how we met and if he had already visited Brazil. He asked me my full name, our current address and phone number. And that was it! HE didn't ask for ANY photos, he didn't take my EAD (I gave him the copy) and he said there was NO reason for him not to approve us. He was really nice.

Anybody else didn't have the EAD taken????

I didn't have my EAD taken. BTW Did they tell you when to expect a card in the mail? Did you get your welcome letter yet? I jus posted my question about it. I'm also in Ga, 2 weeks after interview - nothing in the mail yet :unsure:
