Hi all well the interview is behind us...

Appt was for 9am and we arrived to fallon building exactly 8:30am to find a line wrapped around the building. It was freezing cold so the security allowed all people with children to come inside and wait, but only one parent the other had to stay in line.

While waiting the security scanning machine decided to stop working which slowed down the process even more. So at 9:10am my husband finally got in the building.

We took out letter to the receptionist took a seat and waited about 5 min and our name was called. I was surprised because the waiting room was full.

We got sworn in and straight into the interview. took our ids and at this point my husband the who is the one getting the green card was asked most of the questions. Verified the yes and no questions from the application. He was asked my mothers name, where does she live, when did he get the US, where did he enter..when did we get married, when was my birthday and where did we meet.

I was asked both of my in-laws first and last name and my husband birthday. She asked if we had anything else to add and we gave her our lease, bills, insurance and photos. She looked at the photos and gave them back and asked if she could keep the other stuff and of course we said yes. Said everything looked good and we will get a decision in the mail and that the green cards are usually mailed within 3 - 6 months but people say they get it sooner.

I asked if she would update our online status and she said she was not the one to do that but we can check in 2 weeks.

She put our file in a drawer next to the desk and showed us out.

For those of you interviewing in Baltimore my suggestion is to get there more than 30 minutes in advance to clear security especially if you have an early morning appointment.

For those adjusting from B2 she did not ask any Visa type questions which i thought she would have as my husband and I have been married 2.5 years before submitting the AOS
