J1 Visa Change of category J1 research to J1 clinical

Hi everyone...

currently I am planning ofor applying for a change of category from a J1 research to a J1 clinical visa, I will be submitting all the paperwork to the ECFMG next week...

I am still worried because I have read in other forums that this process might get delayed at the Department of State and people missing the start day of the their programs...

I hope if anyone has been through this process would give us his insight and experience, when did he apply , when did he receive the acceptance ?

Thanks a lot for your help

It is known that changing the visa while you are in the US may take longer time than leaving the US.
