I had a great experience with my IR1 visa interview with a short waiting and interview time. The officer's main question was why I had not applied earlier, and when I answered him that it was due to the 2-year residency rule of my Fulbright scholarship, he sympathized with me! He did not ask me to review the originals of my documents and accepted a missing document via email. I submitted it about three days later, and my visa was approved and printed within the next 3 weeks. During the time prior and after the interview, the consular officers corresponded with me via email if something was needed, and they responded to my questions very promptly.
