F1 student visa, section 221g, pink slip
Hello everyone
F1 visa
Going to USA for phd in materials science and engineering.
Interview at: Chennai consultant
Interview date: 6th November 2019
My VISA is on hold under 221g. After interview I was asked to mail some documents which I mailed same day. Till 23rd December it was showing case last update as 6th November. Now It got changed to 23rd December but it is showing in administrative processing. It's been more than 5 weeks. My classes will start from 16th January. I can't even book flight before final confirmation. Too much worried now.
Can anyone share their experience in this issue. How much time it may take to finish administrative processing.

Is change in the last case update good sign ?
