We interviewed back in July and applied in February.

When you actually get scheduled you will know because the USCIS website will let you know of the date/time you are to appear at the field office for interview, as well as informing you that an interview notice as been sent to the address they have on file for you.

From the time the website stated "Testing/Interview" Status to "Interview Scheduled", it was about a 3-month period for us.

Based on your timeline, if you applied in May and already in Testing/Interview status as of July, technically your case moved alot faster than ours.

Also, before you go to the interview, prepare every detail for evidence, small or big. We got an RFE at the interview. Luckily, it was for something minor and we sent it off the same day, but it's been 3 months since any update.

I believe that my field office will be Tampa. I am adjusting from a J-1 visa to permanent resident on the basis of marriage to a US citizen. I have been in "scheduling" since the beginning of August. I am also curious to know how quickly they are moving. I have no idea myself. I received my AP/EAD card a couple of weeks ago though I understand that is processed separately anyway.

Fullglass: do you mind if I ask what you received the RFE for?

Not yet.

You're EAD is different and has no relevance to your interview scheduling. In fact, I've read that some people get their EAD after they get their green card, which is voided at that point anyway.

RFE was for employment verification, even though I brought tax returns and every pay stub available. The IO did state that everything was good and there was more than enough evidence that supports my marriage as genuine, but that they really needed that verification.

Oof that's pretty rough given that you had tax returns and paystubs with you. Owing to your experience, I'll be sure to take a letter with me from my employer or something (I assume that's what you had to submit).

Take everything with you just in case. They only looked at my photo album. But it's better to have too much info. than not enough.

Called the 800 USCIS number and they weren't able to tell me anything and only saw what I saw on the USCIS website.

Scheduled an INFOPass, and that proved to be a complete waste of time.

So now, it's just a matter of waiting.
