Hello my fellow UK'ers!

I'm patiently waiting for my NOA2. Well kinda patiently lol.

I was just wondering what time was it that you guys received your e-mail/text notification (in EST)?

I'm trying to get a round about time period that I should be on the look out for it! Thanks!

Well I'm hoping that isn't the case!

There have already been a lot of January approvals around and on my date. So we'll see! I'm already at 191 days!

Personally, I started checking a couple weeks before mine got approved... by just inputting numbers that were close to mine into the status checker. That's how I knew we were getting close, when I started seeing numbers around ours get approved.

Ahhh I get what you mean. I think so... You mean just changed the last two digits on your case number, right? I just did it and all the ones surrounding me were approved or RFE'd .....

Well you could be close, or just very unlucky. No way of knowing.

Here's to hoping. :)
