Don't worry if you are a VCS filer...

Recommended Posts

things are moving on time.....we have just been approved in a little under 5 months. I still can't quite believe it! I really hope other people (especially fellow March filers!) get good news soon too! I think the key to this whole process is stay calm, keep positive!

Now on to NVC.....

alex_dc4 sorry for saying not to worry, I was just trying to be positive as there are so many posts saying VSC is slowing down, with people guessing the causes...etc.....which causes a lot of anxiety (which I was feeling too). I really hope you get good news soon!!!
