Default First British passport--has anyone had to attend an interivew?

Has anyone actually had to attend an interview at a British embassy in the US for their first passport as an adult? I'm just wondering as I submitted my application for my first British passport 3 weeks ago (American-born, British citizen by descent through father). Thanks!

Sarah how many times are you going to ask this question? Please wait a week or so until you do so again. Please stop worrying about your PP...it's only been 3 weeks since you applied for it.

Yes I went for the interivew for mine, as it was my first passport.

What do you want to know.

How long after you submitted your app did they contact you for an interview?

Sorry, Jersey Girl--I promise I'll stop! It's just that I'm planning travel to China and Guatemala in April and I'm hoping to get an idea of when I might be called for an interview if I will be asked to attend one.

They've taken payment...therefore it's probably on its way...give it until early next week. Now chill.

GOT MY PASSPORT TODAY!!!!

Quite extraordinary--2 weeks and 2 days from their receipt for a first-time passport.

Thanks to all for your help and support through this process!
