Hello VJ friends,

My fiance and I received a great news,NOA2 today May 16, 2013. NOA1 received on January 15, 2013, no RFEs. It came to us in a surprise since we were told that NOA2 usually arrives around 6-8 months. This is good news for all January filers, CSC. Thank you Visa Journey friends for all your help!
