I filed my I-90 to renew my greencard but failed to show up at the Biometrics appointment, this was 22 days ago, I still haven't receive any letter of denied, can I still withdraw my application before uscis makes a decision?

It may be too late, but her in Boston, when something like that happens, I just have the person show up at the biometric appointment center as soon as possible and explain the situation. 9 out of 10 times they take the fingerprints and the case proceeds without a problem. If you simply don't wish the case to proceed, then sending a withdrawal letter to the office that is processing the I-90 couldn't hurt and might speed things up.

If I send I letter to withdraw, what do I say in the letter?


You could, but I am not clear why you would want to do so.
