Thanks for sharing.
Is there any guidance from the GCMS notes (or crowd-sourced wisdom) on better understanding which are the crucial stages and/or the bottleneck stages?
What I am struggling with is the lack of information on the flow/progress through the various stages a typical application. I am talking about the various steps listed when you click on the ‘Application Status’ i.e. Eligibility, background check, Medical, etc. (see my table below)
You mentioned that your application is still at the ‘background check’ stage. Is that good or bad?
For example: We submitted our PR on May-14th. So we’re coming on close to 5 months, but I don’t know that for a typical/average application, which stages should be complete and pending after 5 months?
My application says they’re still reviewing Eligibility.
Question: Is that typical status? Is that good/bad?
My application says they will send us a message when they’ve started a background check.
Question: We haven’t received any such message saying they’ve started a background check. Is this typical for a 5-month aged application? Is this good/bad?
It’d be useful if we can create a post/sticky that gives a broad overview based on crowd wisdom/experiences.
