USCIS cannot provide a specific time period when you will be scheduled for an interview.  USCIS gives priority scheduling to individuals who have children in the United States who entered the United States after October 1, 1990 and who will turn 21 years old within a year.  USCIS also is making every effort to schedule interviews for individuals who have filed a NACARA 203 application and have been issued a fingerprint request.  You may experience a delay between the time you file your application and the time USCIS schedules you for an interview.  Also, if you live in an area where the Asylum Office does not have permanent staff on location, it may take longer for USCIS to schedule your interview.
