  1. Hi there, I recently got a letter stating that my interview for AOS will take place on April 16th. I was quite excited to hear from USCIS after such a long time since the last time I heard any updates about my case was over a year ago however, I read the list of all the paperwork I need to put together for the interview within a month and I just started to stress out about it. I've got so many questions and I don't know how I'll manage to get this done with such short notice (the interview is in 20 days) but I was wondering whether I had to complete the medical examination or not. As usual, I've got mixed information from the form instructions and USCIS agents. I had a medical examination before I was admitted to a K-1 visa holder. I filed my Form I-485 within one year of my overseas medical examination. The instructions for the form I-693 states that you are not required to have another medical examination if you filed within one year of your overseas medical examination however when I called USCIS, I was told on the phone by one of their agents that I still require a medical examination since it's been over a year since I applied. I'm not sure about this one and I've already scheduled the appointment. If that's the case, I wonder what the appointment is going to be like, how long, what kind of questions will the doctor ask, if it's going to be like my medical examination overseas where the doctor only saw me for like 10 minutes, did a quick q & a and everyone who went before me was like just answer what they want to hear. Then I got a vaccination record in like 5-10 minutes. Also, the day before the appointment I got a chest X-ray, blood and urine test which did not take more than 10 minutes. I have no idea what to expect from this medical examination if there are going to be unexpected screenings and tests that I am not aware of and will cost me more money than planned as well. Thanks for any further tips, details or recommendations.
