That's not true. There's another one here:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/447800-august-filers/

Also, I remembered posting in another august 2013 forum that has more people discussing it, I couldn't seem to find it now.. :/

BTW, my fiance sent our K1 Application on August 16th and the only news we have heard is that the package reached USCIS on August 20th according on the DHL tracker.

I'm beginning to think that he did not submit G-1145 form together with our application. I'm hoping that that was the case.

They should have a subforum with stickies for each months filers. Now that is an idea which I would like credit for.

Received my "A# change" notification today. Cautiously optimistic. Got two text notifications 15 mins apart, hoping that the second one is for NOA2 approval. Online the status still states - Initial Review though
