Yep. With our tiny little 5% window to watch the action through, it makes sense that what we are seeing isn't always representative of the larger picture. Either way, though, nothing to do but wait.

It did seem particularly slow last week. I tried to stay away from the forums..It's been driving me crazy waiting for this. These last couple of weeks have definitely been the hardest. Hoping we see many NOA2s next week!

I have the same math problem: If on average 100 new VJ menbers file for K1 per month, then it goes to reason that we should see about 25 approvals per week to keep up with demand. As I see it, that's not happening.

I know I still have a long wait in front of me, but I would love to see more VJ members get approvals. Even if it's just to keep my sanity (members getting approvals = we're getting approved soon).

Keep in mind that a percentage of those registered here never come back to update their timelines. If you look at the timelines, there's a backlog of several years of members who never come back to report their NOA2.

Very true!!!! It does not stop impatience or frustration.

I'm trying to keep the faith and buy patience by the truck-load :(:blush:

It will be really interesting to see how approvals go for petitions that have the exact same NOA1s and touch dates. I would think they receive adjudication at a similar time. But I guess it could all come down to the adjudicator too!

Paul86 after checking some numbers yesterday , it looks like there's always a few petitions in a row that have RFE and are approved but also a few in the middle that are left out as awaiting ... Let's hope it won't happen to us guys! I wouldn't like anyone to feel left out and sad that others were approved and some not... There's certainly a few of us with the same NOA1 and the same "touch" :P

:wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

I still say the math doesn't add-up; No matter how small the sample pool, the equation has the same basic outcome. 100 applications per month, 50 approvals = our time gets extended :crying: .... 100 approvals = bussiness as usual :blush: ... 150 approvals = our time greatly shortened :dance:

I hope and pray that we get our approvals soon, very soon.
