One of the best summaries I have seen. Maybe USCIS should patent this random number/everything else generator. They even might get a Nobel prize for it.

3. Processing times themselves (can be anything)
4. Processing order (can be anything)
5. Answers from customer service (one can say "Your case will be processed in 60 days", other will way "we do not know anything more then website")
6. Answers from Service Requests
7. Answers from Infopass appointments
8. Unpredictability in transfers (eg. mine was transferred from NSC->TSC->CSC ..nice roaming)
9. ..the list goes on and on (feel free to add please, I think there is no limit).

Sorry, my mistake, there is one thing predictable in USCIS . The predicatble thing is unpredictability

Applied for AP & EAD sometime in June I think. AP was approved very very fast (in 2-3 weeks). Got EAD approval email today after the 485 approval email

Not sure what you mean by "online receipt date". Sorry - not up-to-date on all the jargon.

Lawyers suggested to go to Infofass in Boston (nearest to where I live) and get my passport stamped. I checked the appointments and there is none available for today.

My AP is valid till this December. So can I use it. Lawyer suggests not as there will be intense scrutiny. Horror stories and happy stories shared by friends about friends who were in similar situation.

Does anyone know about this? What are my options. Please advice asap.

Note: I could not figure out a way to create new thread. So, just used a new title. Administrators please pardon me.
Many local offices accept Walk In appointments for INFOPASS.... can you go there quickly?

Assuming your trip is not an emergency postpone it !
It might cost you $200 to $2000 to do so, call airline and find out.

Dude, it is easier to deal with an airline than with USCIS.

Not sure what is being asked - the RD is 05/07 and the ND is 07/09 as per the 485 receipt. Sep 26/27 was either the last LUD or something online. Pardon my ignorance - was distracting myself with an MBA to not get caught up and stop living by getting too involved in the GC mess so not up-to-date on all the different dates.

Online receive date should be close to but earlier than ND. My online RD is Oct. 11, 2007 although my official RD is July 2, 2007. Perhaps that's why I am still waiting. As far as USCIS is concerned I sent my case on Oct 11'07

I know...It's all because of USCIS date system...FYI...

Receipt Date - Is the receipt on I-485 paper receipt, Usually it's the date they received ur app in mail...

Notice Date - is the Notice date printed on the 485 paper receipt

Online Notice Date - When u check ur case status online, the message goes " on so and so date, we received the app...blah blah..."Usually this should be the same as Notice date on 485 paper receipt. However, due to intricacies of USCIS workings, they are not the same. e.g., for my case, the 485 paper receipt notice date is sep 27, whereas online notice date is sep 26...

Yes..that might be part of the delay. But there is some hope because off late there have been many pre-2006 PD approvals regardless of the online date (OD).

Atleast, hope the last four digits (on your receipt number) is a high number, i.e closer to 9999. If they start stacking apps in a box, then a higher number would place your app closer to the top
