Pre-Completion OPT I sent my job offer letter as soon as I had one. My expedite phone request was denied.

My application got into Vermont Center around 8 April.
Hope we April applicants all get good processing times.

I hope so too. I sent my application through UPS and someone signed it. I'm still waiting to receive my receipt number. Let's hope for the best.

If you sent the form for notification via email, it will come in a couple of days.
Then you will get letter via regular mail 3 or so days later. Both will contain your case number.

Hey humming28!

Did you go through any security clearance while getting your F-1 visa? I had to go through and I will apply to OPT soon so I was just wondering. Good luck!

It's hard for me to be optimistic at this point. I'm not even sure if my employer will give me a flexible starting date.

Humming28, what dates did you request for expedite? I called last week Tuesday and when I hadn't heard back from them by Friday, I called again.That was when the customer service person said I should have received a notice the wednesday after I called. Insisted that I had received anything, so she connected me to an officer. I stayed on the line for 40minutes only for officer to tell me my expedite was denied. I checked again this past sunday and it said alien reg. number....It's good that yu called. Maybe you're next in line to hear back. Don't give up yet.

I got approved today but not card production yet. How long does it take from approval to card production? Thanks for all the support.

Optgirl, have you start work?

I mailed my offer to their mailing address. I'm not sure whether mailing the offer helps but it doesn't harm to try! Good luck!
