Default The numbers don't add up

Per the last EB-inventory update
http://www.uscis.gov/USCIS/Green%20C...07-17-2013.pdf
as of 7/17/2013, we had 9,751 EB3-India pending with priority dates older than 01/01/2004.

Per http://www.travel.state.gov/pdf/Empl...utOffDates.pdf
as of Oct 07, we have 2,900 EB3-India pending with priority dates older than 01/01/2004.

Am I correct in understanding that in roughly 80 days, USCIS approved approximately 6,851
EB3-India 485s?

However, if we factor in the cut-off dates, the number of EB3-India applications that USCIS could only have approved by Oct 7 is roughly 6,540. Then, by this analysis, we should have all been approved by now.

Can someone please help me understand what I am missing...

you are not missing anything..you just assumed USCIS follows a procedure and its numbers make sense which is incorrect in my opinion and experience.

I should also have been approved by now but there is no word from USCIS yet.. so the x factor is USCIS.

Default Cautiously optimistic

Hi guys,
Yesterday, I have received CPO email in the morning and received decision email in the night.
I have received CPO email before and changed back to RFE processing after a few days so I am cautiously optimistic this time, I will only believe when I see the card.

I received mass RFE and responded to that on 08/27. Opened an SR a couple of weeks ago but haven't heard from USCIS on that yet. Took info pass yesterday. My case is with TSC

Cheers

Mass RFE was about employment verification.

As the dates have not moved I suspect USCIS will eventually clear our all applications soon. I think they were in a hurry to allocate all visa numbers because of sudden increase in Visa number availability for EB3. Hangin there your turn will come. Good luck

Cheers

Thanks CaliHoneB,

Did not want to sit idle, so opened a expedite request through Senator.. to see if we get the much required traction on our case.

Also USCIS did not release the demand data for EB3 since July. Could you share how you confirm the sudden jump in visa availability for EB3?

there is new demand data out in oct. There are many threads discussing avalability, PD movement etc on this forum but it is definitely not my forte..

I can finally say that my GC journey is over. I just received the physical card a few minutes ago. I will still be involved in IV efforts and I urge other people to stay involved as well even after you received your GC.

Cheers
