  • OPT stem extension shows initial review from 70 days

    Hi everyone,

    U guys doing a great job , i would like to thank everyone for solving our queries.

    I have applied for OPT stem extension on may 22nd to texas service center and still it shows as initial review, my opt 1 got expired in mid of july and
    am worried as it shows the same from couple of months .

    1) Can it be chances of RFE , is that the reason it is in initial review from so long ?
    2) Is there anybody who applied for stem to same service center and still waiting for card from so long ?

        I applied at the same time. Still waiting. Heard that they are taking around 90 days to issue the card. Their website also shows the same statistics.

          i applied to the same service center and it is going to be 90 days next week. mine is still in initial review too. i guess if it's RFE, it would be updated or you would be contacted.

                yeah it took me around 120 days for my stem opt to get approved without RFE. Called USCISr twice and put a service request and the next day the status changed to card production. Probably you should try the same...
