Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : October 5, 2017
Embassy Review : First in line. From the time the doors opened until I was finished was less than 1/2 hour.
Rating : Very Good

Local US CIS Office Review: Philadelphia PA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : September 15, 2017
Embassy Review : Got the one power tripper in the whole place. Was not friendly from the moment she called us. Did not talk at all. Not even a hello or follow me, sit here, please, thank you. Did not look at or talk to my husband once. Did not acknowledge his presence. All other interviewers greeted the folks they called at the door with a smile, a "how are you'. I got the one rotten apple. Horrible experience.
Harassment Level : Very Poor

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
