From some of my friends and VJ-ers it’s been average 4-5 months for a interview for CR1. And yes, for some reason K1 are getting priority over CR1/IR1.

Both! :(  Trust me I know.  I am a year in the process and still waiting for a CC at NVC.  I am right here with you.

I pray that things go faster!  Based of VJ and those reporting their times, I didn't see any October or November CR1/IR1 interviews.  But, I did see some K1's.

 

I am praying you hear something soon!
