Wow. The people who sent it months ago and were told over a year will be pissed if you go first! Heh.

I like the sound of 90 days compared to 360 or 540! Who knows, I might get through in time to vote after all.

I for one! This happened to me when I applied for Permananent Residency. It took two and a half years, about average for people who applied when I did in NYC. But most people who applied just a few months after I did were granted Permanent Residency within a year of applying, because of some sort of automation introduced after I applied. The punchline: not only would I have had PR status a year sooner had I applied a few months later, I would also likely be a citizen now because I would have become eligible to apply long before this damned backlog - back when NYC was processing in 6 months.

Not that I begrudge Scorchio or anyone else for their good fortune. But that approval within a reasonable timeframe should come down to luck and timing just shows how feckless, flawed and failed an organization USCIS is.

BTW Scorchio - no fingerprinting?

I'm happy for Scorchio and others who seem to be having a quick and easy ride through the N400 backlogs.

I've just seen, on another forum, someone who applied in late November (Ohio) and now has interview scheduled for March !

I can't help feeling, like the previous poster, that there's something sadly wrong with the system when there are such drastic differences in timelines, depending on where one happens to live.


N400 to TSC 26 July 07
NOA 26 Nov 07
FP (1) 17 Dec 07 (OKC)
FP(2) re-do appointment 22 Jan 08

No mention of fingerprinting yet. Maybe I'll get an appointment for that soon. Maybe the fingerprints they took when I was sorting out my GC (or was it for my EAD?) are still good? It was on the posh hi-tech scanning machine, where they keep re-rolling your fingers until they get a good scan.

Sorry folks, I feel like I'm jumping the queue! Maybe the Texas branch is processing more quickly or had a smaller backlog. Of course, there's no guarantee that when the interview date is set, that it's going to be anytime soon!

Sis asked at her biometrics appointment about expected timelines, as she was going to come back to Aus while waiting for the interview/oath ceremony if it's going to be another year.

The officer said they get updates weekly and at the moment the interview should be expected about 3 months after biometrics. She asked if he was just guessing, but he apparently seemed pretty sure.

Time will tell, I guess!

Interesting. A friend of a friend who was fingerprinted early November has just had her interview ... her time line was around 8 weeks from fingerprints to interview.

We can live in hope I guess ..

Those timelines will be dependent on the Local Office's workload/timeline, so it will be different for different cities.

jokeworm - That's interesting! There are so few references to OKC on any of the message boards I read - it's good to see info about someone who actually made it to interview recently via that office.

Do you happen to know her priority date, date of application or the number of days they stated on N400? Ta for any further info.

Got this reply from her ...

"I originally applied in July last year.. I think I went for the fingerprints in November... Then back to OKC for the actual interview in January.

They told me after my interview that I should get the ceremony date, within the next two months!!"

Thanks so much jokeworm - and thanks to your friend of friend too!

It's looking more optimistic - even if it was very early July when she sent in her N400.

I'll update whenever I get my interview notice. At a guess it could be sometime next month for interview April or May....if I'm lucky.
