Note that USCIS did not this time provide numbers for pending applications, and also didn’t report estimated processing times. They are currently revising the formula for calculating processing times (the previous formula estimated time to an adjudicator’s desk, not time to completion). The next CSC processing times report should include the more realistic estimates.
