Default Re: Immigrant Visa (DCF: I-130 Filed in UK) - TIMELINE ONLY!

This timeline (3.5 months) was not the fastest possible, as I didn't start to gather the required documents until after receiving the first I-130 approval letter from the embassy. And I also somehow managed to download and fill out a payment form for the I-130 that was for $50 more than required!

31st May: I-130 application sent on 31st May
14th June(?): I-130 re-sent, due to accidentally sending in the wrong payment form the first time.
15th July(?): I-130 approved.
31st Aug: Medical
13th Sep: Visa interview (in the embassy <25 min in total!)
19th Sep: Passport returned w IR1 visa
