It is entirely possible to have more than one I-485 pending. USCIS may even let you choose which AOS to approve. Saw that with one of my clients.

Not quite related but congrats on winning the DV lottery! How many tries did it take

My spouse and I have been applying every year since 2016.

Did the DV results get posted? Or it's last year's DV? Also if you filed in May as ROW you should get it anytime soon, no? Am I missing something?

No it’s last years DV, I’m now eligible to file the AOS based on the May visa bulletin. Current processing times for EB green cards at TSC are 12.5 months to 51.5 months. So with DV I’ll have it by September as opposed to an uncertain timeline that goes up to 4 years

Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
