Did you get the hard copy letter in US mail telling they received your packet yet?

Oh, I just noticed you mentioned Nebraska above.

Well, i guess only 5 of us posted our cases. I know in my Uni every day we have 5 session of OPT where about 8 students attend.
And when i requested an appointment i had to wait in line for two weeks for my appointment. Therefore although we do have stats on this website, they are not that good as represent just minority of applicants....
Wish we had more representative statistics here...
For Nebraska Service Center it shows - 3.0 Week(s) average processing time, but as February, so it is not really applicable for April.

I also checked Vermont, and it's average processing time (as of febuary 28th) is also 3 weeks...so fingers crossed it still holds true.
aGoodgirl you are one of the first in line, so hope you get it soon!

Yes, I am thinking I might get approval in early to mid-May.
Busy now studying for final exams, so no time to really worry about it.
I haven't applied for any jobs yet, as I want to have OPT approved for sure before any applications.
I will get masters in STEM area, so could get 17 month extension also, if I am working for employer participating in e-verify program.

I am from purdue too. The 3 week average time is inaccurate. I am pretty sure its close to two months or more. I know people who have filed in the beginning of April and who are yet to get theirs. So thats the time frame you should be aiming for.

Fizi, you can look at the total processing time shown on tracker right here. There are a few who have gotten in less than
30 days and several who have gotten in the 30-40 days range.
Of course there are some 90 + days also.

Hi, are you able to view your case status on the USCIS website (under the "check my case status link") ? I am not able to do so. It says my case is not found. I submitted my application a couple of days after you. How long does it take for the case status to display on the website? Thanks!

Mashka, have you gotten any word yet?

I wonder if they are holding up the processing for we Ukrainians for some reason!!
