Let me be the first to tell you:

If you don't get your NOA1 within a week, you can either relax and accept the fact that others have had to wait 2 months, or call your congressman. Touches don't mean anything at all except sometimes they mean some action on your file may take place soon. If you get an RFE its because you sent in too much information and confused the adjudicator or because you didn't send in enough to begin with - either way, you should have known better beause if you read the posts on this forum, you'd have known how to do it correctly. Last but not least, if you see alot of people getting thier NOA2's before you, that fied after you, that really doesn't mean anything, or it could mean something.

Good Luck to all of you that recently applied. :thumbs: Just remember to keep your cool. Sometimes the wait makes you just want to take it out on the one you LOVE. As I told my fiance, if we ever go through rough times, I will always look back and remember how hard it was for us to be together. Just the thought of it will resolve whatever you may go through. God bless you all.
