I went for my interview today. I feel i screwed it up i completely went blank and forgot important date's. So this is my question at the end of my interview I feel a bit uneasy about it he said

"I have all the evidence I need to make my decision. Thank you"

That's it he asked for my passport in the beginning of the intervew and then gave it back to me and went on with the questions, passport was not stamped I did not get anything. Just that statment he did not say stay in the waiting room or anything like that. So what dose this mean for me? I dont feel ok with how the interview went because my mind went blank and the end of the intervew made me feel uneasy. I am confused and not sure what this means. I didnt get told "Welcome to America" but wasnt really expecting that anyway but I also wasnt expeting the response I did get. Any help is appreciated.

***Moved from IR-1/CR-1 Process and Procedures to Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, and Tourist Visa discussion area as OP's post history indicates this was not a CR-1 interview******

 

If this was an Adjustment of Status interview, it is completely normal........just wait for the official notification.

You won't get a welcome to America until you get stamped at your POE in the US. Please update your VisaJourney timeline :)

 

Did they keep your passport? If so that is a good sign but I can't figure it out by what you wrote "That's it he asked for my passport in the beginning of the intervew and then gave it back to me and went on with the questions, passport was not stamped I did not get anything." Did you receive a piece of paper (221)? Your passport does not get stamped but they would keep it to attach the visa (which is a sticker..) FYI

I believe this was an Adjustment of Status interview.......see OP's post history.  He/she posted this thread in the CR-1 forum.

Ok. Just the way he ended was odd and weird I thought. From what i hear from other people who have gone through the same things I have has had a different outcome from getting a stamp in thier passport for temporary perpuse and a handshake and welcome to America. I wasn't expecting that as everyone is different, but the out come of my intervew left me with mixed feelings and confusion. My mind went completely blank and couldn't remember important dates of events. It feels that I have just messed it all up. It it normal for this sort of thing to happen?

Getting a stamp is not standard procedure.   In fact, I don't recall the last time I saw a post stating they received a stamp at the end of the interview.   I have seen MANY posters report their interview was exactly like yours.  Just watch for the status to update.

The immigration process always generates a lot of "What if" thoughts....😊

They don't keep passports at AOS interviews.  You're not interviewing for a visa, so why would they?
