wow! i dint know that was possible.. congraats!! mine is next week...

Guys where is your application being processed?

the USCIS site says mine is at the national benifits centre..but again the nbc does not process I 485..ne idea?

your file will be at NBC for the initial process, they process your work permit and AP, then they will send you an interview letter, when they find you an available time , and they send your file to the local office for the interview.

Congratulations! I'm unsure if doing a walk-in actually speeds up the process or not... however, I'm only on Day 20, and my I-765 was touched today and is in "Decision"... so that's a good thing, I think?!
