Confused about how to schedule interview - Rangoon, Burma

After the handoff from USCIS to State, we received an email from the embassy:

 

Quote

When all the documents including the medical result are ready, please send the email to <redacted> with the attachment of DS-160 confirmation page. We will schedule the interview date at that time.

 

My fiancee received her sealed medical result and I emailed the embassy in Yangon, Myanmar with an image capture of the front of the result envelope and requested an interview appointment.

 

I received two replies

 

Quote

Your name is added in our waiting list and we will contact to you if there is any available slot.

 Her name is added in her waiting list and we will contact to you once the visa gets ready.

 

The embassy says that for K1 visas, one is to email the embassy to get an interview slot.

 

It's been 7 days (and of course Thursday last week was an Embassy holiday -- Thanksgiving). I noticed that this embassy has an online interview scheduling system (which shows plenty of slots available in December). So I'm a bit confused about why there would be two procedures.

 

The second reply implies that they are actually preparing her visa, which is encouraging if true, but seems too good to be true.

 

So I am wondering if we should be using the online system to schedule an interview.

All is well that ends well. Received the interview appointment email.   It is toward the end of next month.  Very surprised how little was in the check list to bring to the interview.  As in just one of five police reports she spent weeks and thousands of miles and dollars gathering.  😡
