Interview experience Oklahoma city office

Hi community,

So as the title of this post conveys I had my interview for adjustment of status to permanent resident today at OKC office and I am gonna tell you a little bit of my experience.

First a little background though, I came in the states in Jan 2013 on an F-1 visa, applied and got OPT thereafter, filed for AOS on December 2014 by virtue of marriage with a U.S citizen.

I got my EAD on March this year, and today 14th of September was my interview.

So well the experience itself wasn't bad but I am still not sure what to make of it, first of all, I was aspiring I don't know how common this is, but I was looking to get approve on the spot and get perhaps the I-551 stamp. This, did not happen which is kind of disappointing. Instead, I got a 'everything seems to be in order, so I will make a decision with what I have, so hopefully' that's it, a little unnerving indeed.

The interview started with going through my wife's I-864 (We have a co-sponsor as well, who happens to be my mother in law) I knew I had messed up my wife's Social security number on the form so this got corrected when she stated the right one, he went through all the info, address, name, birthday with her and finally asked her if the signature on the form was hers she said yes obviously. The interviewer started getting a little jerky by this point and picked a little on my wife asking her "have you ever been arrested like repeatedly' and then he was like 'are you nervous' "sorry I did't mean to scare you' all this in kind of a jerky tune, but anyway that's fine I guess.

Then, he went through the I-485 made me the same question as he did my wife I answered then we came to the point of the yes/ no questions about terrorism and communist party and whatever, he got a little jerky with me as well, he was of hispanic descent and since he knew I was too, he got to inquire if I was sure of my answer about being a terrorist in Spanish. He even made an annotation in red for one of the questions I couldn't read what it said I only could only read "NO" but that was it, I don't know what to make of this either.

Anyway, then he asked for evidence, I handed him Bank statements, utility Bills, Tax returns, life insurance policy with my wife and I as each other's beneficiaries, then he said "ok That's enough' he asked then to my wife how we met each, she answered, no further comments from him, then he said show me the pics you have, I show him pics of our marriage and of family reunions and whatnot, he browses to them and gave them back to me, then he saw my wife's sister in one pic and asked, are you and your sister twins, my wife explained they weren't (They are not). Then he sees a pic of my wife and me during her birthday and he says 'oh you look older here' well, you know kind of in a condescending manner.

Then he says about screenshots of conversation my wife and I had through Blackberry Messenger that I submitted as evidence when I filed and he said I am gonna shred this cos it doesn't establish relationship.

Finally, he asks for my old and new EAD as well as our Id's gets rid of the old EAD and hands me back the new. Then he said well I will make a decision with what I have everything seems to be in order so hopefully... then he said if you don't hear from us in 30 days, call.

And that was it! What do you think guys, good, bad? Should I be nervous? Is it a goner, or a winner?

Thanks a lot in advance for your replies!
