To Venkat521 - Based on the response in this forum, apparently, there's no pattern or order or sequence in which the approvals are happening. I've seen approvals of applications submitted on Sep 17-2011 and you're still waiting for an approval of your application submitted in August '11.

I wonder though if USCIS (VSC) has any tool to monitor why so many applications are still not processed. My receipt date is Sep 9 2011 and there's no news. My attorney says 'regular applications' can take anywhere between 2 to 6 months to get processed.

Good luck to you and me and others who are waiting.

USCIS website updated today by 12:00 Noon EST... They didn't updated the site since 10 days.. check the forum you will see many people update their status today....

People who wait beyond 140-160 days please expect RFE and be prepared for the news... I have random search of case numbers filed in Aug 22nd to Ag 31st.... around 3132 applications total I129's

887 are done with premium processing first time - 90% of them approved in 2 weeks max

573 converted to premium after filing in regular - again 90% approved with in 2 weeks max

1186 applications got approval in 130-150 days span i.e without RFE's (Approvals dates between Jan 3rd to Jan 26th)

193 received RFE's with in 140-150 Days span....still not approved

293 applications crossed 160 days in which as on today update 87 RFE's and 12 Approvals remaining are still in Intial review

I may be wrong with few numbers but this is purely my analysis... for information only

Don't get tensed... prey for your luck

To ripi

Don't worry. U will definetely get it. It is just that all of us have been made to endure such a long and painful wait. Even though the duration has been long, my attorney was telling me that the rejections and RFE's are significantly lower in the last 3 months
