Got cc today. How long ussually does it take to get an interview scheduled

For IR1/CR1. Anywhere from 1 week to 3 months. If I would be forced to guess, you'll get your IL in about than 2-3 weeks maybe less.

Your interview date will be roughly a month or so after getting the letter.

Congrats. Hopefully you'll get it in the next batch of IL scheduling for December.

Thanks! I hope so too. Was hoping for November but they're full per the online scheduler.

In your case, the online calendar doesn't apply. Even if there are slots in November, they generally won't give it to you as NVC (and USEM) needs time to get your physical casefiles sent over and processed.

True!

I called NVC and was told that they haven't received an interview date but i can call again next week to check cos she believes they're still scheduling for November. And i thought, November was full. So i check the calendar, and true enough. there are hundreds of spots opened up for November. It's weird cos there were only 3 yesterday.

Is that normal?

I can't speak for the open spots online as I'm not familiar with what pattern it follows. As for NVC still scheduling for November at this time, that is definitely not normal.

Maybe there's weak demand these days. I guess that situation bodes well for you. Maybe you will get a mid-late November slot then.

Btw, the IL email comes in within a day of them scheduling your interview. There's really not much upside to calling NVC (and it's long wait times) for that.

Thanks yannix! I won't call then. though i got lucky the past couple of times i called them, only got the busy tone ones, and only took 20 minutes to speak to somebody. But yeah, it could be just a waste of time. Still keeping my fingers crossed to get a November interview. The calendar still shows a lot of open slots for November. It might mean something for me or not, we'll see. :D
