Offshore/onshore: Offshore

Medicals submitted (yes/no): YES

Police check submitted (yes/no): NO

Date CO assigned: 03 JAN 2012

Date visa granted: Today! March 16, 2012

I still have to submit my FBI check, which I have the clearance letter for, and the state check they requested. Then we begin the waiting game!
I can't believe it! I wasn't expecting it this soon, although with how crazy I had been going it felt like forever. Now for the whirlwind that is moving!

Hi piedy!
I have a question. When did you submitted your police clearance? Was it prior you lodge you application? Or after the CO asked you for it?

Usually when someone just answers "Yes" to the police clearance part, it means they had them done and submitted them with the application. A lot of people will do that to save time in that the Case Officer won't have to take the time to request it. They will already have it there with the application. My suggestion is once you are about a month away from submitting your application, get your police clearances done so that you can save time (for you) and submit them with your application.
