    Using some info I've gotten from these forums (but can't remember the sources...) about 75% of appointments are offered in March. If you did not hear anything by April, then chances are really slim that you'd be offered appointment that late.

    I think appointments in April are off the National Waiting List or something, but I don't know much about this part so I'll stop myself before I say something incorrect. (unless I was already wrong about that :yllol:)

    Well, it also depends on your geographic location. If you live in Colorado Springs, you'll probably get your BFE (assuming Big Fat Envelope which holds the appointment information) before the website updates. On the other hand, if you live in Hawaii, the website could very well update before you recieve your physical packet.

    'Course, I'm waiting for mine too so this is all speculation on my part :yllol:. I think it makes mathmatical sense though.

    Our experience this year:
    BFE mailed 1/10
    App Status updated 1/13
    BFE received 1/14
    Others received theirs on 1/13. Depends of USPS.

    So when the website is updated, the BFE will probably show up very soon... I'm trying to catch this envelope before anyone else does. Personal thing :eek::D:cool:

    My status changed on the website about two weeks before I received the BFE. So it could take a while. I too wanted to be the first one to intercept it. It felt great to finally find it in the mailbox.

    Serious question, what does BFE mean. Too many new acronyms here:confused:
