Question Medical Check for American offshore de facto

Hey there,
I've heard conflicting opinions on how necessary it is to get a medical check as an American BEFORE sending in the application.

In your opinion, how much would it slow down the process if I submitted a decision ready application, minus the medical check?

Thank you very much.

Quite honestly, so many people are submitting decision-ready these days that (from what I've read) it's no longer making much of a difference. I did exactly what you're thinking of - decision ready, minus medical check. I won't be able to tell you for sure how it affected my processing time because there are likely going to be other things delaying my processing time (my medicals will no doubt be referred). If you have a good reason for holding off on medicals, you're probably not delaying things much (if at all). Better to file now and get into the queue if there's a reason you have to wait than to hold off applying because you can't do the meds for a few weeks (IMO).
