7. I wish you the best. I was rejected twice, and am coming up on 1yr waiting for a judge.
My year will be in May, so I believe they're obligated to at least give me a date by then. I have high hopes that an actual person listening to and seeing me will be more effective than dealing with some paper pusher.

As others have said, documentation is very important. So is being persistent. If you aren't fortunate enough to have one of the conditions they auto-approve for, they may reject you the first time, but people who stay the course and have valid issues usually get there.

A lawyer can be very helpful, too! I have one. They can only collect if they win your case (clerical fees aside), so it's in their best interests to do so.
