The officer (USCIS) did not agree with the department of state (DoS) decision that I am not subject to the 2 year rule. He asked me to explain why I am not subject, submit a waiver for the requirement, or prove I've been residing in my country for 2 years

Nothing yet. I did e-request and received email saying USCIS will review and process the request and I should expect a reply by July 28, 2014.

Your case is still pending consideration. We regret that we are not able to give you a time frame for when we will complete the review of your case.

Anyone knows WTF means?.

I have my case under revision. My attorney and I prepared a response stating I do not have any government funds for my J1 program with the purpose of furthering international exchange programs. Being paid from a federal grant does not mean the J1 program is being financed using federal funds because the funds are not given for an international program. It is quite confusing for most of us, but the law is clear, and all those points are clearly stated in the J1 bases (even took me there months to figure it out). I have no cue what the officer can say to me. What can be said of an officer that is asking you to go to your country for two years to fulfill the two years rule, when he has in from of him a letter from the department of state stating the rule does not apply because there is no government funds involved and the skills list does not apply.
