Could be, but if it continues over a period of several days, we will know that isn't the case.

I am hoping that is the case but I guess we'll see offtopic45vn.gif

CSC is NOT in a slow down. Yes they have slowed from the pace they were on, but if anyone here thought that they would continue ignoring all other types of filers and keep up the pace they were on K-1's you were fooling yourself.

They are still churning out several per day according to Igor's list and seem to be on a more normalized pace again. This is nothing like what happened at the end of 2012 and start of 2013. THAT was a slowdown and of epic proportions.

The past week or so they've been sorting out RFE's, but just yesterday they pumped out 8 NOA2 with only one coming from an RFE (according to Igor's list). From the looks of that list, they are working mostly on November filers now, which means they have almost gotten to the 5 month mark, and seem to be sitting just under 6 months right now.

I have to say, that from what I was seeing when I first applied, that I will be ecstatic if they get me my NOA2 in 6 months.

I admire your optimism. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But the TRUTH is already out there.... thanks to the efforts of a few, many are (/will) reaping the benefits. "The cat is out of the bag, members have the information already. It's too late to put the genie back in the bottle." good.gif idea9dv.gif

It's not optimism, if you watch what happens close enough you can see it. The pace they were on in April is absolutely NOT a regular pace. They had to push aside other types of visas to prioritize the I29F applications to get that kind of pace. They are getting close to being within their stated goal again, and that is why you will see this back to a more normalized pace. A more normalized pace is closer to 100/month tops and not the 150/week we were seeing. If you think you can get them to keep that pace, you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

It always has been and will continue to be an up and down ride. They rotate through different types of applications to keep from falling TOO far behind in any one category. They got way behind in I-129F due to the DACA load that was unprecedented, so they got some pressure on them and they rearranged the priorities again to get caught back up.

I think you are correct.

Here is what a real slowdown looks like. If you see anything close to this, then by all means panic.
