Phew!!! what a relaxation...I passed my N-400 Interview Test and now just waiting for oath ceremony letter. My interview was on 19th of July at 9:40am in Phoenix AZ. We allowed to enter the building 30 min before of its schedule time. They checked my interview letter and rest stuff and told me to go Window 1, what the Int.letter said Room 1. Inside the waiting room ouch!! soooooooooo many people. I submit my interview letter at the window and told us to wait until they call my name. We looked up at the window, they put my interview letter on the top of my big documents file what I submitted in US Embassy in India, for AOS and I-751...glub!! told my wife this much document I gave. So we were sitting and waiting for my turn. They calling everyone by name for interview, thought now they going to call me. There was another girl sitting next to us for her Citizenship Interview, she was from Somalia-so we all start joking to each other , as she was quite nervous. At 10:10 officer came and called my name...woohoo!! my turn finally. The officer was nice polite, kept smiling after all it was $ 675 smile what I gave lol!!. I took the Oath, than he told me to sit down. First he start going through with all the forms I submit, just to make sure everything is correct. Officer raised one question on the Affidavit of Support for my birth certificate what I submit in India-my middle name was spelled wrong by one letter as Phillip but I use Philip (single L). I gave the explanation,ah human error sorry :-D I never noticed that before as well humph!! So we done reviewing with documents. He asked me to sign the Oath of Alligence. Than he gave me another paper to sign, told me this is ur info going to be on your Naturalization Certificate-asked me if something wrong let me know....I said everything is perfect. He gave me another paper to sign incase I lose my Green Card or get stolen before the Oath Ceremony, so I signed it. Than he asked me, that he's going to take my english reading & writing test:

He asked me to read 2nd line on this paper, WE HAVE 100 SENATORS- He said I passed my reading test - I smiled :-)

He asked me to write - OOPS I FORGOT WHAT HE ASKED ME TO WRITE - He said I passed writing test - I showed my teeth this time-jk :-D

Now officer said, now I'm going to ask History & Civics question- I said OK -

1. What is freedom of religion?
2. What is economic system in the the United States?
3. How many U.S Senators are there?
4. What ocean is on the East Coast of the United States?
5. Name one state that borders Canada?
6. Who makes federal laws?

Than officer said ok let me look your answers on my computer, He said ok you passed-you approved. I shouted YES!!thank you. He smiled lol

Than he asked me if I have more documents to give with Joint name and same address. I open my folder, took out bunch of file, he said is this all for me -than he try to grab my folder...I smiled I said wait. I gave 2009 tax papers which I didn't submitted before. He said there are so many tax papers. I just need front page with your joint name and address, don't care about ur rest tax papers. I gave new phone bill, re-newel notice for our Cars from MVD. That's it. Took all my documents ,pinned up in my file....said you will get your oath ceremony letter in 2-3 weeks-I said Thank you so much...that was it people. He handed me N-6** paper of my test results. I kept makin sure of myself ok the paper saying I passed and approved yes I'm approved. looking forward after all this hard long journey going to be over soon....that's my story friends...Waiting for my oath ceremony letter :)

Cheers & God bless
