My interview went well but he said he will leave in my passport and get back to I and my wife about his decision in a couple of weeks either through a phone call or mail. He also pleaded with me not to leave the country during this process. I was kind of confused because I was told that they take the I-94 if they are going to approve you and my interview went well because he only asked a couple of marriage related questions and spent most of the interview time going through the forms we had filled to make sure everything was correct. He contemplated taking the I-94 then said since I am still a student he won't take it.
Not on the basis of your I-94 not having been taken by the officer. You had been told incorrectly. It is completely discretionary with the officer whether to take your status form or not. Most officers in most jurisdictions I had interviews in, do not take status forms at the interview. Some do.
Who ever 'told' you this doesn't know what they are talking about and the world would be better off if they stopped giving immigration advice.
You are perfectly fine ... don't count the days, it could take more than 3 weeks. The CIS officer is only able to give an estimate ... it is not a promise to do something in 21 days.
Relax, enjoy your new marriage and ... STAY IN SCHOOL.
