i am not an expert but I think what matters more is whether or not you have payed your AOS and IV packet fees first?

I am assuming you have already otherwise I don't think you will be able to fill out the DS-260.

Anyways I filled out the DS-260 first and am about to send my IV packet in the next few days.

I think at this point, its best to just send the DS-260 as soon as you can.

They say it takes about 60 days for a review but you never know when they will actually look at your application so its better to be safe then sorry and just send it soon.

So if I were you I would just send the electronic application soon.

If you don't send it soon, then they can get your packet and see that the DS-260 hasn't been filled out yet which can delay your case.

Just my 2 cents.

Again I am no expert.

I did not wait, as soon as the IV was marked paid, I sent in both the AoS and the supporting documents. The NVC received my package 10/27/14, although it has not been scanned or marked in yet.

The waiting continues, good luck!
