Default Long live USCIS!!!

Everyone is expecting EB3-I will be NOV-2001, and USCIS sets it as APR-2001.

Long live USCIS.

Thumbs down

As expected and as many posters said it would, all of EB3 including ROW is now screwed.. due to the change in visa allocation of over flow, july 07 fiasco and adhoc namecheck 90 provision, nothing against the ones who benefited from this.... ROW might see some progress but EB3 I/C are screwed big time....yes long live USCIS indeed...there is no hope for EB3 as a whole without a recapture provision.

Default perhaps i'ts a mistake

Like my title says - Could it be a mistake on their part for EB3 I ? Was it meant to be 15th April 2002 ?
In March of This year it was 15th Oct 2001. Then it goes to U for untli Oct and now its 15th April 2001 (gone back 6 months !!!!) This seems odd for a new fiscal year with new Visa Quota however small EB3I may be - are there still that many 2000-2001 applications pre-adjudicated in the system waiting for a visa that they had to roll it back ?

Unhappy EB3-I dates for 2009-10

visa bulleting indicates what is going to happen to EB3-I for 2009-10 year, in next 3-4 months it will again become U, with date around Nov'01, and that's it, unless CIR get passed (don't know when........) with some urgently needed fix for EB category, it is hopeless atleast for EB3-I folks

<Rant>There is not mistake, i always feel that there is some @#$hole at the USCIS or state dept whose only goal in life is to get a sadistic kick by toying with the dates. How can these @#$@#@'s not realize that there is a person behind each visa number </Rant>

Getting sick of this movement in dates.

Illegal guy in US makes more money & without any hassle.

Trying to stay legally hurts very much for the past 9 years.

Atleast they should allow to pre-file I-485 so that atleast guys like me (when we missed july 2007 race) can just file and complete the verification process in I-485.

LOL

EB3 ROW went to June 2002



Since I will never get GC, this may be a good time to plan the big change for my life.

Good luck, everyone!

Default Get serious

EB3 Folks!

This is pathetic ... And it's time for most of you to seriously think about converting to EB2. Now I have no idea how difficult or immpossible this would be, as I had always been EB2, but their are several threads on this forum that can assist you. I strongly suggest you to seriously start researching your way out of this mess. I wan't expecting EB2 to stay beyond 05, but it is going to be like that for another month. Are all the 2004 EB2-I applicants exhausted? ... I don't know, but I know EB3 just keeps on retrogressing.

If this abyss continues, think about it ... you will always remain struck where you had been for past so many years. This is no life.

Ask yourselves ... how can I convert to EB2. Take control!
