Default September 2008 Last minute 485 approvals

Hello folks,
We are left with 5 or 6 working days this month (and this year). Is anybody expecting last minute 485 approvals in this 5 or 6 days? Any unused visas in all categories should be used in coming few days. Letís see what USCIS going to do with these unused visas. Some people are getting soft LUDís on their 485ís in last few days, including me.

Letís hope for the best

Thanks

Soft LUD for me. It was so soft that it didnt even update the date.
New term: Very Soft LUD. No visible change to the naked eye, but something is cooking behind the scenes regarding your case

soft LUD on a case 1 no. ahead of you or 1 no. behind you = very soft LUD on your case. Isn't everybody is smart enough to calculate the formula for very-raised-to-the-power-of-n soft LUD now.

I think they touched our cases but i think they cannot give any result as there are no visa numbers left..

Lets hope for the best in last 6 working days !!!

C'mon, the receipt numbers are not related at all. It is possible that reciept number X is for I-485 and receipt number X+1 is for refugee.

You might get soft LUD's or hard LUD's. Even if CIS wanted to approve your application and requested for a visa number from DOS, DOS systems are not going to assign any visa number because DOS made them U and the case will have a pending visa number status. If there was any chance for overflow, we would have seen some date rather than U.

I think he is serious. 485 receipt numbers may not be in sequence. Eg. TSC may assign one receipt number to 485 and the next one to 765.

This is my understanding

Very Very Soft LUD = when 1 case before you and 1 after you.. is touched (Soft LUD) not necessarily consecutive cases
