I received an email and txt notification from USCIS, stating that my case was accepted for my Deffered of action application

Asked about 2 years ago - Fresno, CA

Here is the email
Received on 9/10/12 at 1:33pm
"Your case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS California Service Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number WAC*********. With the official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) you may visit www.uscis.gov where you can check the status of your case using My Case Status. We suggest you wait until you have received your Form I-797 before checking My Case Status."
What exactly does this mean? Is it time to celebrate or can it still be denied?

You will soon receive other notice for your biometrics appointment, and within 6? months or so, hopefully, a notice of approval. Oh, and within 2-3 months you should receive an EAD card issued to you, valid for 2 years, one that even Romney won't be able to cancel..
