    It should not take more than 90 days but it is k even if u don't receive ur opt card... But make sure u receive ur ead number... It will be the same no on opt card too... If u hv that no u can start working there won't be any problem... I am pretty sure that Der won't b any problem... Just go n start working n I wish u all the very best for ur future...

            As soon as USCIS accepts your application and you receive your receipt, your employment is extended by 6 months so you need not worry about working now or not for 6 months, you can have the receipt as proof that its still in processing. Even my application is still in initial review. On which date did your application got accepted?
