Moscow interview scheduling

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Almost to the interview portion of this process.  Late last year there was a lot of worry/discussion about difficulty in scheduling in Moscow.

those of you who have recently been through this part of the process or are going through it...please, any insights? Tricks? We are hoping to grab an interview appointment as quickly as possible.

Anecdotal evidence says that after largely clearing the backlog from last year and catching up with everyone whose case made it to Moscow in January (including us, thankfully), it's been a few weeks since new interview dates have shown up. Seems to be how things go in Moscow.

Good luck.
