Hey act0482,

Did you get you EAD?

I applied the same date as you and still the status is "Initial Review".

Any update, much appreciated.

Hey act0482,

Yes, I do have a job offer in hand and that's why I am worried.

Hi act0482,

Congrats for getting approved. I have applied on Apr 22nd but my status still shows initial review. Do you think I should also request for expedite processing... Does it help (even if the request is rejected) ? My job starts on July 1st. very anxious,

@ Amit: I have the same situation, applied on 22nd April, Still Initial review... It's so frustrating.
I requested expeditious processing twice, and both of them were rejected. :(
I don know what to do...

Do they process the requests in order of receipt number?! I was just checking some random numbers after mine, and some of them were in the card production status... I am not sure how it works!!!

hey act0482,

My card was approved around the same time as yours. Would you please keep me posted if your status has changed to card mailed or you have received the physical card? Thanks a lot!

It is a very sophisticated system, but basically it's based on country of origin. The darker you are, the slower they process...
