F1 visa, 221g slip
Interview on 25th June, 2019:

VO asks for my I-20 & passport.
I pass him my I-20, passport & SEVIS payment confirmation. He inputs my details on his computer.

VO: Is your brother on an H1B visa?
M: He's a green card holder.

VO: What does he do?
M: He's an IT consultant.

VO: How did he get his green-card?
M: He was sponsored on an H1B by the first company he worked for.

VO: Which university did he study from?
M: Told him the name.

VO: Is this program related to your Bachelor's Degree?
M: Yes.

VO: How many universities did you apply to?
M: 7. 6 in the US & 1 in Canada.
VO: "Wow!".

VO looks at my I-20 and smirks.
"That's a lot of money..".

VO: Who's sponsoring you?
M: My family, primarily my father.

VO: What does he do?
M: Told him.

VO: Have you taken the GRE?
M: Yes.

VO: Do you have an advisor?
M: Yes.

He proceeded to hand me a yellow-slip, and requested for my CV, my advisor's CV, and research plans. I sent those the same day. 100% a TAL issue because my program is an ME in Robotics.

No update since. It's been 63 days. Had to defer for a semester.

To those who underwent TAL AP: how long did it take to clear? What are the chances my visa is issued before January?
