Default Fastest US citizenship application ever?

My sister (who lives in San Diego) mailed her US citizenship application in on March 8th. She took the oath today, May 3rd.

Beat that!

Not only that but there's apparently a new passport office in San Diego so she'll probably have her passport in a few days time.

I, on the other hand, mailed in my Canadian citizenship application on April 30th last year and I'm told the absolute earliest I'll get it is sometime in June...

Don't want to burst your bubble but there are others coming in roughly the same time frame I was 11 weeks myself.

That's incredibly fast! Mine took about 5 months back in 2005 and I thought that was fast.

It's amazing considering that back in the late 90's adjudication of citizenship apps were measured in YEARS! Now it's almost measurble in weeks.

Looks like they're finally putting those hefty application fees to good use.

You can see many active immigration trackers here (ie. timelines) for US citizenship:

I see a few people on there around the three-month mark, so I'm going to say eight weeks is a record until proven otherwise.
