    Someone said there must be a typo in NSC's schedule. It should be 7/1/2007. What do you think, Greg?

    I feel that its a typo too. I believe the intent was to type 7/1/2007 and it erroneously ended up being 7/112007. While its difficult to read it as 7/1/2007, most probably it is 7/1/2007. If you read towards the end of the update, it clearly tells people to wait for 14 days for the receipt number before phone inquiries and we are gonna have weekly updates of these. If it were 7/1/2007, most of us should have had receipts by now. Wow!

    I think 7/1 was a weekend so that date is a likely typo. Agree with the other comments.

    Hi Greg,
    Is it 07/11/2007 or 07/01/2007?

    Thanks

    If you filed a whole bunch of things all at once, do you get a separate receipt for each one? Or one for all of them?

    Greg,

    Do you know if Service Centers are now approving all cases on based on priority dates of labor certification vs. recipt date of the application itself? The reason I ask is because on trackitt I've been seeing a lot of approvals for concurrently filed applications, where I-140, if filed concurrently are being approved faster for those individuals who have an older priority date, even though the person applied later then some of the other pending applications, and even when the Service Centers are showing that they are working on cases that were filed months before.

    Example, some of the cases approved in July for EB3 ROW were for priority date in 2003, and the I-140 (regular) and I485 were filed in May 2007. There have been quite a few cases of these, especialy for cases at NSC. I was just wondering if the prosessing dates for service centers are reliable.

    USCIS just told me Friday they will not provide any information regarding cases if they were filed less than 90 days ago. I.e. forget the 14 days rule. They ask now a question "Was your case filed more than 90 day ago?" and if you answer yes - they stop talking to you and refuse to check your name in their system.

    Sorry, updated the typo in my comment:
