Hi Guys, questions are in CAPS in the middle I would like to know if anybody had this problem. USCIS sent me an appointment for biometrics, dated on the letter 10-06-05 (I got email alert sent on 10/13/05 from USCIS); the appointment date on the letter was on 10-22-05. Reason for not getting letter on time. I am out of the country and my roommate was out of town for a couple weeks too. I am in Canada for a (school) semester, participaing on an exchange program sponsored by my university in California. I was thinking about sending a request for another apointment after I come back - at the end of December. I never seen an appointment so close to the date they sent the letter. I always had a couple months more or less - example my fingerprinting appointment last year. I have a couple questions: ANY RECOMMENDATIONS? DID ANYBODY MISSED APPOINTMENTS? Please, I need some constructive comments from you guys to help me to keep calm because I am panicking "a bit" to tell the truth. Dealing with immigration sometimes reminds too much oppression I suffered in my own country (it all might be in my head only (?) - I know) and I freak out a bit. So please really be gentle - it may sound funny or just plain ridiculous but try to be nice anyway. I say this because in the past I read some advices/comments that were not so constructive.
