That made me stop being so darn cynical and take the time to appreciate just what it means to become a US citizen to so many people.
It had the same effect on me. It made me a lot more appreciative of the opportunity I have to live here.

Yes! Mine was in a courtroom in the Federal Building in Lexington.

Haha, yes I'll let you know if I cry or not.

Today's update on the USCIS website:

On February 27, 2013, we scheduled you for your oath ceremony and sent a notice providing the date, time, and location.
Chugging along nicely here!

I don't think so, no. We still have my stepson's card. Only my wife's card was turned in.

Regards, JEff

Congratulations. I just posted in my n-400 this morning (4 Mar 13). I should be interviewed at Jacksonville, FL. Your interview came around quite quickly...I better start cramming just in case. I'll try and keep my timeline on this thread if that's ok.

Hey I mailed mine this morning too and I also live in Florida, I think it should be a good idea for us to keep each other posted about the timelines and notifications? Good Luck!

No problem, Welshgator. I do believe it's okay to post a thread of your own if you want, or in the past there has been a N-400 thread around where people could post their timelines. I'm not sure if it still is around. If not, it could be started. But, I don't mind if y'all post it on here either. lol

Good luck to you and to you too, nycawesome!

Jeff, thanks. When I went to look at the passport application forms, I noticed it said to send kidlet's PR card in with the application, or a copy of it, I don't remember already lol. But either way, I'd still need it for kidlet after the oath ceremony, so definitely hanging on to it. Thanks!

Update:

Posted n-400 on 4 Mar 2013 to Dallas Lockbox.
Received notification of receipt of n-400 through e-mail on 11 Mar 2013
Waiting for letter with case # to arrive so I can log on to watch status on USCIS website.

They received my application on March 6th and I got my notice with case # on March 11th and checked status, it was initial review. On March 13th, they sent me an email and two text messages saying that a fingerprint appointment notice has been sent out. I should get that notice tomorrow and I will have my fingerprint taken on Monday. The process has been pretty fast so far.

Did the email/texts indicate that the appointment was for Monday?

I've used the case # from the original e-mail. Status says they mailed out an appointment letter on 13 March. Also, states that they try and mail out the letter at least 14 days ahead of the biometrics appointment.
Status on n-400 application processing at Jacksonville,FL is 5 months.

No, it didn't but i'll go anyway. Last time when i was applying for my permanent green card, I went to the appointment after i got the letter and they processed it right away. As long as you go before or on the scheduled day, it's fine.
