...just trying to understand what protocol USCIS follows in selecting pre-adjudicated applications for approval.
Thanks prem_goel. I didn't do anything. Last EAD/AP was applied in last year October. In fact I decided not to apply for AP last month when dates became current for me and No my last name doesn't start with A,B,C etc .

I guess they are using PD as the "protocol" because if you see the other tracking site then you will see applications with PD around 25 th July getting approved in last 4 - 5 days.

All the best and hang in there.

Teddy, for Nov 1st filers, how long do you think before receipting is done (NSC)? Also, are biometrics required to get the EAD/AP card? Thanks!

Default May be mid next week

As per the October filers tracker, I see majority of them got in 2nd week (mid to end) whoever filed in 1st week of October, so guessing the same trend for November filers too, my application has reached to Dallas Lock Box on Nov 1st early hours(8.50AM), hoping for the receipt no some time next week Wednesday to Saturday (receipts will come in through postal service).

I am not sure about EAD/AP approval without bio metrics, but strongly thinking that you have to get it to be done in order to get EAD and AP.

Will see some updates next week mid hopefully

Good luck with the next steps

Hi Teddy,

Did your cheque's get encashed ?

Will greatly appreciate your response.

Not yet still awaiting the same, hopefully by this week I believe few people should have cheques encashed or receipts received.

Receipting may take 2 weeks from submission because of the high number of filings ~ 10K. So far no one has reported cheques being encashed or receipting.

Default EB3I-Nov 8, 2002

Hi Teddy,

First of all I would like to thank you for your efforts and predictions. My PD is Nov 8, 2002 (EB3I). I missed the 2007 boat. I have yet to file for I-485. Could you please predict when could I expect to file for I485 and then how much longer would it take to to get "GREENED"

If I can say "TeddyKoochu" Baba Ki Jai

I started with combining PERM data from all of the previous years and filtered on India and included "Certified" and "Certified Expired" cases. I then extracted the actual priority date from the A#(which is hidden in Julian day format) and ordered the entire set by priority date. Next, I excluded all the data for which Priority Date as well as Approval Date was before Fiasco, because they were already included in the I-485 inventory. The remaining information was grouped by month based upon priority-date. Then I multiplied by 0.75 (the EB2/EB3 ratio) and then by 2.2 (the family multiplier).
So, this includes ALL of PWMB and when we are considering a total inventory target for this year burnt inventory needn't be substracted as it is these people who are getting these GC's.
The logic looks sound; I believe you are capturing everyone including China as well. The figures for the months before Jul 2007 look a little week. On another note have a look at the Oct Inventory for Jul 2007 you will find that the EB2 I + C count exceeds 3000.

I believe you are on the fringe of EB3-I this year there are 3300 people ahead of you. This kind of exceeds the Eb3-I yearly allocation but I believe that there are gaps in the EB3 Inventory. You should have your chance between Sep 2012 and Dec 2012.

Regards,
Hari.
EB2 outlook is currently 5 years so sometime in Jun 2014 your days should be current. However if 3012 passed it could become 1.5 years instead of 3.

Everything depends on the following 3 factors.

1) What SOFAD is expected if its 30K then CO's prediction will be realized in this VB itself. Move backwards by 1 month for every 3K less.
2) What kind of buffer CO needs, ideally he should work with a small buffer to justify the same kind of thing in the next year as well.
3) Current I140 backlog is 30K as opposed to 15K last year if this is cleared to last years level SOFAD might drop by 8-10K.

The current approval trend is very encouraging but we should be cognizant to the fact that 8.5K SOFAD has been used already. IMHO the chances of this bulletin going to 01-MAR are 50-50, there is definitely some chance for the next one as well if this fails. Let’s see some of the comments and guidance in the VB. It will be a very close race for all Q1 2008 folks. All the very best.
