It was a rollercoaster experience. All were friendly but I don`t know why so many questions. And why on this day the both CO were constantly speaking with the other CO. It seems that my CO was a trainee.
And at the end of my interview he asked the other CO to come and check his doings and his PC listings. The other CO raised her shoulders and smiled and that was it. But in between I was after so many questions very nervous! I did my Interview in german! And I was glad I did it. After my approval I talked to him english!

*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
