So, I'm scheduled for my interview on July 28. I had saved a copy of the N400 that I had mailed out. Glancing thru that today, I observed that there were a few typos (yes, I'm going thru this now & not when I mailed the form out..). The first one is a minor one - a typo on my city name. The second one was on Part 7 of the form. Questions A & B ask for days spent outside the country in the last 5 years. C asks for trips since permanent residency. I had 2 trips listed that were before I gained PR. Not a big deal, coz all those add up to like 80 days. Should I point them out during the interview ??

Yes you should point that out during your interview. It shouldn't be a problem. Just let the officer know. If possible go with corrected pages on the pages with errors. The officer will like that. makes his/her job much easier.

Geez, now I realize I answered question 7 part C incorrectly as well. :blink: I suppose they would figure it out from the dates; I included everything since I got my original greencard (with conditions). Anyway, good to know. I've already completed a replacement page that I will offer when I go for my interview. Glad you posted this question!

Guess most of us screw up on that form, after reading this board after sending in our application see we should have listed all of our kids, step and all, so filled that in, printed out the corrected form and wife brought that in.

The days out of the country in the last five years will always be a problem until the USCIS simply states, the days out of the country since you became a LPR and just leave the years out of that. Requesting evidence that is not even listed is yet another problem, could just provide it, or take them to court. Whole idea is not to go to court, just apply in the most rapid fashion and be co-operative.

And yes, the United Way and others are fund raising organizations, should list those.

An exactly how does one overthrow the US government, not that I want to, just wondered how. Is voting for a candidate that wants to make major changes an act of overthrowing the government?

A very nebulous and ambigous form to fill out, with the I-751, only wanted our kids listed that would tailgate the applicant.

Glad I could help & make your wait a little uncomfortable... :no:

Yes, the part 7 is kinda tricky if you dont pay attention.... But looks like they go thru the whole app with you, so we should be able to provide them with our form version 2.0 during the interview. good luck.
