N400: I did some Maths Wait Time from Biometrics to Interview

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-3 Timeline

I have gone  through the timelines  (from 2010 till date) for my local office painstakingly and I noticed that the average wait time from biometrics to Interview is approximately 3months and a little change ( less than 2weeks)

however 30% of applicants had one month from biometrics to interview while 15% had > 1 month but < than 3months wait time

 

My question then is asides from workload does the local office have a scheduling software similar to the one the DMV uses for scheduling where the days that are "full" are grayed out or the adjudicating officers just use discretion and throw wait times around???

If you get interview in three months, you are lucky that you live under a good local office.    If I were you I would relax and wait for 3 months to get the interview letter.

You know USCIS is very "notorious" for making our minds think weird and crazy stuff during these wait times :rolleyes::goofy:

They got me thinking how in the world do they do the scheduling asides work load? Looks to me like in some instances within a certain month the speed of processing is dependent on work ethic of the officer in charge of a case (Putting in mind all things being equal with cases)

We see the same thing in our everyday life at the place of work, grocery store, state office etc some workers are just generally faster and smarter in dealing with same case compared to others.

Some will get up 1 Million times to go grab coffee, smoke a cigarette, chit chat on facebook, Instagram and all the other BS  SM handles out there when they should be hands on board knocking out jobs

 

Just a rambling takeaway from a waiting lad.

Just waiting for it to be 90days In a couple of days before I have an attorney wire them a stinker

On what basis? Processing time for n400 at Oklahoma City (per your profile) is 5-22.5 months. Receipt date for a case enquiry is 16 December 2017. ( I’m sure the attorney will take your money anyway though.)

On the basis that its more than 90 days since case was accepted.

Don't worry about me "throwing" my money away. It is MY money and I can do anything I want with it  including wiping off

Well, he will see a letter or email from them politely referring him to above-mentioned receipt date for case enquiry, but yes that’s what they’ll do behind the scenes!

I've been on VJ for a while and have been in this game for 11 years total.  I'm shocked at the number of responses lately that are snotty, arrogant, and demeaning to the OP, in this forum and others.  Maybe something is not an issue for YOU but you don't know the life circumstances of the OP-maybe there is a reason they need the case to go faster (sickness, dying parent, job loss, sick children, problems in country of origin to name a few) Maybe there is a reason they are confused (recently learning English, or getting bad advice from a lawyer both come to mind).

When I came to VJ there were rarely snotty answers and most tried to answer as best they could. If VJ had been this demeaning when I first joined I would have gone elsewhere.

Frankly it's sickening.  We are all in this because we are going through a tough process-we are looking for answers because we've not done this before and have no way of knowing how it works.

Can someone explain why in the past few years this has become a scary place to ask a question? Obviously I'm not talking about violation of the rules of VJ because they are dealt with.  I'm talking about demeaning someone for asking a question or having an opinion. Can anyone answer that?  Or does someone want to give a sarcastic answer to me for asking?

Which OP are you referring to? I opened the thread and haven't seen anything derogatory or demeaning being thrown at me

The poster who I believe you are referring to was asked on what basis he was planning to send a “stinker” letter. He did not answer that he had any life circumstances that required expediting, just some arbitrary timeline that had nothing to do with the processing time for his FO (both the question and time processing information being politely posted), and he then asserted his right to, in his own words, wipe off his own money. If he had answered that he needed it done for any reasons other than apparent sheer impatience and the will to get his lawyer to be nasty, I’m sure people would have gladly offered help. You get what you give.

I would say that in general the gross discrepancy in wait times across field offices is due to variations in the number of people who apply relative to the size of the office. More even staffing across offices - that is, staffing in proportion to the number of applicants - would significantly improve inconstiencies in wait times. But it seems that's too logical/obvious to be implemented....

 

In short though, I'd be happy if I lived in an area where the wait time was only about 3 months. Meanwhile in NYC, 8 months after applying, nothing but silence.....
