Observation about people getting NOA2's

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just a general observation, but I notice that most people seem to get a their NOA2's towards the end of the business day... (5pm ET)

However, is this just because this is the time people come back from work or is this when USCIS posts the actual change? I know touches are updated there and then... but not neccessarily any change to the case.

I can't remember anyone getting notice during the day... Can anyone correct me?

This is a computer batch work. what happens is that cases are being approved during the day, but computer system will send out emails at 5PM to all the applicants who's cases are approved during that day.

Tonyeck...perhaps while we're waiting you could put together a graph to either prove or disprove this. I will read both of our tea leaves and consult with a psychic to find out when we will be approved. And Safitu, what do you want to do?

Might keep us busy (but definitely not sane) as we watch those who went after us get approved before!

Yes, the approvals and other notices via email are computer-generated. In another forum we were sharing what time we got our approvals. I got mine at 7:15 PM, others got them at 5 PM, midnight, 3 AM, etc! There was absolutely no consistency.

Or both at the end of the day!?

I think both (online & email) at the same time. :yes: Once I got a touch at 8 AM! So only a touch (no change of status) I guess is possible at any time. But emails (for me at least) always came after business hours.

Mine came at 9:19AM CST. However it was two weeks and one day late and more than a week after I got the letter from the USPS, but I finally got it...


YMMV
