I never received notice that I needed to renew, but did anyway. The apt. times at sfo are over 4 months out! I made an apt, but b/c of travel may have to change. So I've received provisional approval, but have to go in (probably b/c they can NEVER read my fingerprints - a situation that isn't going to get better unless they improve the technology!) for an apt and can't get in before the expiration do I turn into a frog (non GE person) on my birthday?
