I got filed to Nebraska, which I was expecting, but still :(. However, I did get an IOE receipt number even though we filed via mail. Is that standard now? Or did others receive a different code on their receipt?

Are they any faster at processing than they were prior to this change? 

Nope, unfortunately it’s the same, IOE hasn’t been any faster so far. Nebraska is still working on January-February 2019. They’ve just transferred a lot of I130s from Feb 2019 though so maybe it’ll cut off a month or two, but that’s from the transfers not the IOE. So far IOE hasn’t shown to make Potomac or Texas any significantly faster either; I think Potomac has actually slowed down. When I filed a year ago Potomac was taking 4 months, now they’re taking around 6-7

I filed by mail too! How many days did it take for you to find out your IOE and service center? Also, were you told via mail or email?
