It takes time, 60 months isn't true. It wouldn't take 5 years to go through. Mine went to CSC in late December/early January so April will be the 4th month mark.

Apparently, a lot of people transferred to CSC see their cases approved without interview....

I've had my EAD since mid January, so it won't take long for your EAD or AP to be approved. Once you have your EAD, you can live with a little more normality though.

Not sure why people are not reading things lately seems to be a huge issue.

If you go to the CSC processing times page it only lists EMPLOYMENT I-485 status on their website not family based.

Yes and, unfortunately, once something like that is posted it causes panic. OP - it doesn't take 60 months, but does vary greatly from a couple of months to a lot longer. The best way for you to get an idea of how long it'll take is look at the immigration timelines on VJ for AOS (http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/aoslist.php?cfl=$cfl&op5=5,6,8,9,10,11) and choose 'yes' for the 'Transferred cases only' drop-down option.

Good luck and hope you hear something soon.
