Thank you for the exhaustive reply.

I think that would be very helpful.
Just wanted to give you some more background: My wife is the principal applicant and I filed as a dependent. I am currently working as a researcher at a University on my H1B, the new job is at a for profit University.My understanding is you cannot transfer H1B between the two types of University. Would that be right?
At the new place i just filled a form where they asked if i have work authorization in the US and I ticked yes. I guess i could contact them if USCIS is not forthcoming. Do you think infopass would help at all is it worth trying to you think its a net negative?
Hi Amazon or anyone with sound knowledge ,
I need opinion on what to do.
My wife and I filed an AOS on June 6th, based on the trends i observed then, people were getting and are still getting greened in 2 months, so for some boneheaded inexplicable reason I chose not to apply for EAD- I reason before i get a job offer the Gc would probably be out.
Now its almost 3 months, most of the people I know have their GC but I am yet to get mine and last of all, I got a job offer to start October 1( Full disclosure: I told the company i had authorization to work- which I do, I'm currently on H1B- its just that i can't transfer the H1B and I will have to wait till April next yr to file another one). I got the offer mid august, realizing my profound error, I quickly filed for an EAD on August 14th.
I am still hopeful that I will get the GC before October 1st but is there anything i can do to maybe help. i am thinking of scheduling an infopass to explain the situation to an IO, or maybe call TSC and explain my worry to them- At this point, while it would be good to have the GC, even the EAD will suffice so I can start the job.
Please advise, I am hearing all sort of conflicting advise from friends- its getting confusing.
Thanks again for your help
I have tried adding my case to the tracker. I have done that about 4 times now. After i click submit, I get message that says
"You have successfully submitted I-485 data!! View Case"
When I click on the view case, it gives me the message below
"It looks like you have not added anything to the tracker yet.
