Click on 'quick links' on top right. In the dropdown, click edit profile.

We need PD information and stage of GC process information so that we can create an analysis document and show the powers that be how much backlogged people are in the process.

Maybe when we answer a post, we make it a habit to ask people to update profiles with such details. What do you think about this ? Also, Some people reported some bugs in the tracker. If you find bugs or have suggestions to improve IV tracker please PM me. We will improve it.

Came to US Jun 2000.

But I mean to say, the guys waiting for 5 years might not be having less pain than the guys waiting for 10 years.

After some time when pain is at its max., it does not increase.

But what's the point of this thread, PPl are already very frustrated..Lets not remind them how long have they been waiting. unless there is a need....and i do believe there must have been a need for this information, otherwise it wouldn't have come from administrator. It would be nice if more details could be provided

wow this is depressing.
I came to US without any goals in 1996, started working in 1999
applied for GC in 2000, company screwed me in terms of labor and GC and got laid off in 2001 (dot com bankrupcy). Waiting since then with a PD of mid 2002. Took part in all IV related activities till the EB2 Vs EB3 nonsense started.
