OP and others, it’ll be smooth. Lines at the consulate is painful. Agree with SC1 in general timeline. Just a suggestion, don’t lookup online ‘experiences’ on this, you will get stressed out big time!

Have fun wasting 14 years of your life trying to get a green card,

I won’t sugar coat things, but 2 things !

God help if you are working at a client site. Else New Delhi is better than the rest of visa centers in India.

If you get the green slip be ready for a great long vacation, I am here for the past 80 days.

All the best though, I hope you don’t get into what I am in.

I don’t know what happened to me, may be background checks since they haven’t asked me for anything yet. I think you should be good, I would just say if you are into data science or AI, please don’t use all savvy words in your DS 160 since that might trigger additional TAL checks. Keep your job description same as it is on your petition.
