:D So I had my interview appointment for 11am today. I arrived at 10:45, and there was just a handful of people in the waiting area. I got called in at 10:50 for my interview. The lady was really nice, asking me about the weather and such. Then swear to tell the truth, and asked the history questions:

What is an amendment?

Who vetoes the bills?

Who did the US fight in WWII?

To what do you show loyalty to when you say the pledge of allegiance?

What's the capital of your state?

What is the supreme law of the land?

Then she went through the questions on my application and had me sign that and my pictures. I had originals of what I sent in, but she didn't even ask for them. She only asked for my greencard, passport, and driver's license. After that, she gave me a letter that said I was recommended for approval, and said I would be notified about the oath ceremony, which might either be in July or August. I was out by 11:10. The whole process took only 20 mins.

Good luck to everyone waiting for their interviews.

For the amendment question, I answered a change or addition to the constitution. And for allegiance, I said to both the United States and to the flag. Good luck!

Did Milwaukee say anything about their oath policy? Like you should receive your oath letter in a couple of weeks? We must live on the line, biometrics for Milwaukee, interview at St. Paul, was always curious about Milwaukee's oath policy.

Know you can get excited if you pass your interview, but like Vince said, "it ain't over until its over." It ain't over.
