Embassy Review : I DIDN\'T SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE,I WAS SO FREAKING NERVOUS

My day started beautifully! My interview was at 7 :30am,i arrive at the Kingston Embassy at 6:52am gave my phone to a man to keep (paid $200 ja)he gave me a card with numbers on it,then i joined the immigrant line. The security called 5 persons at a time,i went thru security and was told to sit in the court yard ,about 5 -7 minutes later the security started to let us in row by row.I went in and my letter was taken and was told to take a seat on the right,i was given a number and told to listen for my number to be called.I made sure i went to ladies room before the numbers started to be called.

I was so nervous!!!... I started to talk with those around me( nothing about immigration).My number was called 30 minutes later,the young lady asked me:
1. Have you ever been to the state?
2. Are you related to anyone sitting in the embassy?
3.are you still living at this address???
4. Is your number 876....

I am going to now take your finger prints
took my finger print and was told to sit and wait for my number to be called,the next time my number is called it would be to do my interview.

*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.
