2NLs are starting to be sent for May interviews. This is earlier than normal, and since last month was a bit unusual in the way the 2NLs were published, we might see similar unusual process this month, so the 2NLs might be spread out over a few days – I don’t know for sure. So – look out for the email – and check the ESC site.
The email itself has no useful information. It simply tells you to check the ESC site for the interview details. Some people that receive the email will find the ESC site is not ready, those people should try again after a few hours. Also, some people find the email itself goes to a trash or spam folder or somehow miss it. So – if you think you may have been scheduled but missed your email, you can check the ESC site, just in case. The 1NL (you have been selected letter) is replaced by a new letter which gives the appointment details.
*** please for our willing scrapers – let’s get scraping (as we can then identify the cases that have been scheduled, and that tells us how many interviews are being scheduled per embassy/region ***
