Dear friends: I just filed my I485 in Dec 01 and got a receipt last week. I did not attach I-693(medical exam) to the 485 application because I did not have the carbon-copy form(the medical center says INS rejects forms that are downloaded from the ins website). I just want to start the filing and then mail the I693 later as RFE or just attach the receipt to the I693 when mailing. Question1: Is this wrong and too late? The I485 form says "wait for INS instructions for medical exam". Question2: Should I take the exam now right away (I now have the form) and mail it off with receipt copy or wait for RFE? Question3: I was told that I693 expire after 1 year. What if my case will not be adjudicated for more than 1 year? Does that mean that I have to waste $200 again to do the same exam again? Question4: Is it true now that most employment-based AOS do not need interviews any more? Just an approval letter sent to you and you take it to INS district office to get the stamp? Thanks!!!
