Keep waiting ... it will probably be early next year.
But, by now you should have gotten an EAD ... or will soon.
Thus, other that you wanting to get it 'overwith' there is no reason to rush to an interview.
In fact, it is usually in your best interests .. you now have more time to accumulate joint bank statements, bills, etc.
