October 24th? Yikes. Try a land border, you can probably get an interview sooner.

I live in Montreal and that the only place they have on the list is YUL.
I don't want to go drive 2 hour for Ottawa.

Where can I find the land border info?

Here is the listing of all the Nexus enrollment sites (both US and Canadian): http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/tr...xus_enroll.xml

Champlain, NY is less than an hour away.

In GOES, click on "Manage Interview", click "Reschedule Interview" and select the Champlain, NY site. It should give you the next available time and let you look at the schedule.

To answer my own question, I received the email notification about 2 hours after my interview.

Now to get my iris scans done.

None of the enrollment centers in the US offers an iris scan. Can I use the nexus card without an iris scan at the GE kiosks?

GE kiosks don't take the cards, only your passport.

The GE kiosks also use fingerprints for identification, so an iris scan is not required to use GE.

Did my interview yesterday. I actually arrived a couple of hours ahead of schedule (took the last appointment in case I ran into traffic). There was no one waiting in the office, so they took me right away.

It took as long to watch the video as it did to do the interview.

I had the approval email by the time I got back to my car.

Looking forward to using Pre later this month.

Application submitted: 5/20/13
Conditional acceptance: 7/30/13
Approval: 8/10/13

I applied on June 10th, and received conditional approval this morning. My interview is currently scheduled for 9/1 at Toronto Pearson, but I may change that when my wife also receives her conditional approval; she applied 10 minutes after me and has not yet received any notification.

Both of us already have GE memberships and are US citizens.

Waiting since 6/17 here.

Sounds like they are finally getting into the mid-june applications. Hope that our applications come soon.

An extra trip to Niagara Falls would be preferred when it's still nice out.

I applied around July 10th and heard I was approved by the Canadian side a few days ago. Waiting to hear back from the US side which is another 6-8 weeks from what I was told?

That would be good news (if they're getting into the mid-june applications).
Maybe the backlog is getting smaller?
Let us know when you get pre-approved.
