I paid my ELIS fee on 09/09/14 and entered the US on 09/12/14, after I paid the fee online. I just checked my ELIS fee status on USCIS site today and it says 'Optimized'. From what I understand, after it says 'Optimized', the actual GC does not take too long to be printed. I am not too sure about this, but I have seen it from the timeline of other VJ members.
