    I guess you'll be getting your interview notice soon as well as yeahbuddy has in this Seattle thread.
    Keep us posted.

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS!
    Now its just a matter of getting the Interview NOA by mail, it can never come too soon :-)
    Please do find time to keep us posted in the thread about the interview and the waiting time from email notification to actual receipt of the notice in the mail, we'd appreciate it very much.
    Remember there is a sticky note on top of all the threads in the forum about the documentation organized by others who have successfully hurdled the interview I really think its a good resource.
    All the best and Godspeed.

    Hang in there and let us know when you get your interview notice.
    Good luck.

    Correct, Seattle filer, PD mid-Dec 2017.

    My EAD card had an expiry date of the end of April 2019. I have received the NOA for the renewal, so it's valid for another 180 days, but now no AP. I wish I'd sent my renewal in a little earlier. I didn't realise the automatic extension didn't apply to the AP.

    Really hoping the interview notice comes soon. At the same time, my 2 yr wedding anniversary is in July, so also wouldn't mind waiting until after that so we get the 10 year GC!

    eta: my status changed to 'case is ready to be scheduled for an interview' in March 2018.

    Any Seattle Filers in March 2018 in the thread?
    Any one received an interview notice yet?
    Just crossed 14 months since PD last week and wondering if anyone got lucky with an interview notice already.
    Will appreciate reading from you.

    Hey Yeahbuddy,

    You have been quite patient there. So i'm assuming you are a Seattle Filer, and your PD was Dec. 2017 and its been 17 months since and you have no interview notice yet. I think you are ripe to make an Infopass appointment to check what's going on with your interview schedule. When is your EAD expiring?

    Which brings me to a head scratching realization that maybe Seattle Filers really have to wait between 17 to 21.5 months for AOS processing.

    Hope to read from you soon.

    Just bumping up the thread to get anyone to update their status on awaiting first interview.
    If you have a PD earlier than March 2018 and still haven't received an interview notice, we'd like to read from you.

    Will appreciate reading from you.

    Hi!

    November Concurrent filer at Chicago Lockbox / Seattle field office. I had my biometrics reviewed on December 29 2018 and have had no change on EAD / Travel permit. 5 months with no updates.

    No instant verbal approval but she told us, she will review the medical exam and additional documentation for her decision.
    If it is approved or RFE, we would receive a notice in the mail and if all is good, we should have green card in our hands in a month.

    She did subtly mention that USCIS could have an update this evening…
