Harassment Level : 5
Comments : Long wait with a close call with the layover. All took about 2-2:30 hrs to complete. See the Seattle POE reviews for my complete review.
The harassment level 5 here is a mistake? I chose 'some', not giving me number options. I would give a 3 on 1-5.

POE Review: Seattle
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-09-15
Embassy Review : As soon as the plane landed, they made us wait on the plane about 15 mins. because 'customs hasn't started work yet'. Our plane was already 20 mins late into Seattle.

It was looking good at first- We ran to the front before we got into lines at the passport stamper's desk, and were quickly processed, ONLY to find out that it doesn't matter how early you get there, you're a "second-class" entrant if you need additional processing, as they told me.

So they had us wait until EVERYONE else on our plane was processed into the US, and when it got to the very LAST person, ANOTHER plane just got in. At first they told us we would have to wait until all of THEM got processed as well, and then they changed their minds and said they'd just process the 3 people in wheelchairs first. I'm not sure if they really needed the wheelchairs or not, but one lady seemed to have no problem kicking her husbands wheelchair in front of her.
There were 2 other people that were waiting for the additional processing as well, and they got processed before us. It was starting to look like we might miss our plane, which we originally were supposed to have 2:30-3 hours before it took off. In the end, we made our plane with about 10 mins to spare (thanks to not having any additional problems at customs), and all was well. POE also asked us both basic questions, real easy stuff, and although they were pretty friendly, we heard them mention numerous times that they don't care if we miss our layovers.

I give it a 3, for not being hard, but also not being very helpful. If our layover had been just a few minutes sooner, we would have missed it.
Harassment Level : Moderate

*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
