there were two questions,

they wanted to confrim when I last entered the country, (which was July 2003, I still have the white i-94) their records 2nd Oct 2007, which was the start date of my H1b extention. I submitted copies of all my i-94s

I also didn't submit medicals with my 485 application, so they were asking for the medicals.

I would feel a little more secure if I had seen the approval notice first, I am surprized to see the "card ordered" email

good luck to all

As far as India is concerned, EB3 was brought to June 2003 dates current in last June 2007. So in theory EB3- India lot would start to be cleared from that pointer and and logically previous lot is out. Now many people with EB3 PD 2001/2 preferred illegitimate and now illegal path of switching to Eb2 by purchasing black market substitution labor and perhaps some may got a legitimate job offer under Eb2 category and choose to switch seeing death prone slownesss of EB3 queue then.Now many who used black market labor and switched to EB2 are now suffering by sitting in EB2 queue and they will pay the price by waiting 4 more years assuming system will not be changed. Having said all this expect EB3- India reaches to 2004-Dec to 2005-March border atleast by the end of this december. Till then EB2-India will have to suffer and once EB3-India reaches to mark 2005-March/June, EB2-India will start its march.

It's good that labor substitution EB2 folks are being served poetic justice.

I still think your view on the EB3 demand is too rosy. While many people ported off to EB2 only to go wait under the "U" banner, I think there are still too many people patiently waiting in EB3 to expect rapid forward progress of priority dates. Ofcourse, I hope I'm wrong and EB3 India dates do move forward as much as they can.
