Eb3 ROW card in production
After almost exactly one year, my journey is complete. I normally do not post in online forums but wanted to share since this has been a really supportive group during the journey. Some lessons I have learned during the process to lessen the stress involves signing up for myuscis account and enabling email notifications. That takes the pressure of checking USCIS tracker everyday expecting an update and getting disappointed.

Timeline below

ROW priority date June 2019
I485 filed 15th october,2019
Fingerprint 21 Nov 2019
EAD/AP Jan 15 2020
Medical RFE September 8 2020
RFE Response sent 24 Sep 2020
2nd RFE October 8 2020 Lawyer failed to include medical documents
2nd RFE Response sent October 14 2020

9/2/2020: I-131 and I-765 renewal received by USCIS
9/11/2020: Fingerprints applied for I-765 EAD
10/20/2020: I-485 Approved
10/23/2020: Chatted with Emma and found out case was approved (special thanks to user @josear04 whose post prompted me to check Emma)
10/23/2020: USPS picked up card

When I mailed my RFE response in July, the case status online never updated to "RFE response received". It showed "RFE sent on 6/25" up until 10/25/2020, when it finally updated to "Card was Picked Up by USPS". I did call in August and September, and one of the immigration officers confirmed that my RFE response was received, but the online status wasn't accurate.

I came to the U.S. in 2006 (yes, 14 years ago), and went through F2, H4, F1, H1B statuses until getting my green card just now. My English is way better than my native language at this point, and it's honestly been a long time coming. I never liked hearing "you just have to wait" from people even when they meant well, because they couldn't imagine how excruciating the wait is. I do hope that all of you will get your green card soon.

Recent RFE or any notice From Texas Service Center for EB3/EB
Just wondering if anyone has received any recent notice from TSC in last month or so. I have not heard anyone whose case is in TSC got any recent notice and was wondering why TSC is way slower then NBC when the processing time for both service center is showing same amount of time (9.5 or so for eb).
PD is sept 2019 and still stuck on fingerprints received notification from last 6/7 months.
Thank you
