batsy,

Like you I applied just for AP. Do you know if someone applies only for AP, it will take longer than combo card? Have you received yours yet? Also, I am thinking of sending I-765 and requesting a combo card. Any pros and cons of this approach? Thanks.

not sure. i applied for my AP on Nov 10th. It still has not arrived which is weird, as it's been past 90 days. I am not sure why the AP has not been processed, is there some super long background check that's just got it stuck or is it that they are ignoring it for some other reason.

Hi Batsy71, in one of your posts you mentioned "Your RFE has given me some peace of mind too. Yours was the 3rd case of EB1-I, I know of, where 485 saw movement after 1 yr + 1-2 weeks of wait" ... I do have similar opinion, as per my observation of cases in this tracker. Do you think, per your observation, this applies to applicants of EB2 row? Please let me know .. ( Thanks )..

Yes. There is a high likelihood, USCIS would follow the same policy for ROW applicants stuck in extended review too. I mostly remember EB1-I cases as it's my category so easy to remember and also a personal friend who experienced the same timeline. You can verify this theory by checking trackitt tracker for ROW 485s stuck for > 270 days and > 5 months after I140 approval.

However, do note that there are a few users here on trackitt from Iran, Pakistan like lallee and metalheaddude whose cases are taking longer than 400 days, so in a few rare cases, USCIS does take really long maybe based on applicant's background, commonality of name etc.

I have got message from USCIS that on May 5th, they have received the RFE material, how long usually takes to respond to RFE? 2 weeks or 2 months?

typically takes 1 week - 1 month. if you don't hear back within a month, raise an SR.
