Does Boston ASC (Application Support Center) (USCIS office) allow early biometric appointments?

Asked over 1 year ago - Boston, MA

Anyone has experience with Boston ASC allowing early biometrics?

If the applicants can't make the scheduled date, do they need to show conclusive proof of why they can't make the scheduled appointment and be allowed in earlier than the scheduled date?

I have heard reports from other applicants at various ASCs where if the staff is not too busy, they simply let you in and take the finger prints and stamp the appointment letter as the proof. At some other ASCs, applicants were asked to come in to wait until everyone else got done.

Additional information

Are there any better days or times for walk-ins at Boston ASC?

Again anecdotal evidence online seems to suggest that most appointments seem to be on Mondays and Tuesdays.
