In donalds america very likely yes. Unless you do like EB2 and you are like a super expert in your field.

The policy was changed or is changing so every EB filed after a certain date will also have to interview.

I filed an AOS from F1. I’m kind of confused because I have been reading on this forum that some people don’t get interviews? I always thought that everyone got interviews. 

The policy recently changed to where all AOS require interviews. Some websites may not have updated with these new changes. This may be why you are getting conflicting info.


Just be prepared for an interview.


Good luck.

In the past, people who have had interview going thru consular processing/interview at their home country may waive the interview (k1 visa); or sometimes when they're adjusting thru employment, USCIS may waive the interviews. 


But now, everyone gets at least 1 interview.
