I applied in Miami in December 2017.
Current estimated completion is May 2019, so that will be 18 months from start to finish, if it completes as scheduled.

I applied for mine (Online) in February, using the Chicago Field Office, Biometrics were scheduled fora couple of weeks later.

The Interview was scheduled for Mid September and the Oath Ceremony a week after that

If possible go for the Online Route, it's pretty simple and seems to be a little quicker than paper filing

Also my Estimated Completion Date was April 2019, so I became a Citizen much quicker.

6 months from beginning to end in San Jose CA earlier this year . Some FOs are much more predictable than others.

I'm in Tennessee, applied mid-July 2017 and did the biometrics at the end of August. Interviewed at the end of November, and took the oath on 18th January this year.

You lapped me! In Boston, applied May 2017, oath date Aug 2018 - no issues, just went into a black hole for just over 1 year...

Ummm... Maybe a little bit

Holding onto the fact that anecdotally things seem to be going through a tiny bit faster than that. Their online processing times say 17.5 - 19.5 months

WOW! Although I realise it may be different in VA, that is good to know as I have been putting it off thinking it would be a lengthy process.

Filed in May. Had biometrics in June. Got my interview letter today, scheduled for December 19 in Detroit. I’ve heard that there’s a chance the oath could happen that day if I get my trivia questions right.

Atlanta, GA. Applied in January 2018, Biometrics in February. Apparently they are still 'Actively' working on my case with an estimated completion time of July 2019. That would be 17 month in total to complete a 2 week FBI background check, schedule an interview, talk to me and schedule the oath ceremony.

Well - I guess there is no hurry. They can take as long as they like, just hoping its completed in time for the next presidential election
