NYC N400 interview experience

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

I went for my interview today, heres my experience. I applied based on the 3 year rule.

My appointment was at 1:40. I got there at 1:30 and the room was in had about 100 people waiting. Waited about 2 hours was finally called in at 3:30. The officer was professional but made very little eye contact and doesn't seem open. He took me to his office and swore me in.

We started with the english test and asked me to read

"When is Columbus day?"

and to write Columbus day is on October.

Afterwards we went straight to the civics test he asked me the following questions:

There are four amendments to the Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them.

What is one right or freedom from the First Amendment?

Who is in charge of the executive branch?

During the Cold War, what was the main concern of the United States?

What is one reason colonists came to America?

If the President can no longer serve, who becomes President?

Afterwards he went straight to the application questions. Then he printed out a paper that he's recommending me for approval. He escorted me out and the whole thing lasted around 20 minutes.

Side notes:

-i had 20 corrections on my application because i filled my application via the pdf and missed filling in the A number on the top right corner of each page of the application. So as he was asking me the questions he's filling it in.

- I brought in all the paper work that the yellow letter asked for and he didn't ask for any of it.

-At the end as he was about to escort me out, he asked me if i signed up for selective service i told him no and asked the reason behind it and asked me how old i was when i got the green card. I told him that i was 27 already when i received my green card. I told him i have the selective service letter and gave it to him. afterwards he escorted me out and said that they will send me a notice about my oath within 120 days.

I hope this helps as this always helped me reading about it before hand from other applicants.

Hey, I am sure this would be helpful to those getting ready for interview. With a straight forward case like yours it usually takes less than 30 minutes. Hope people were motivated enough to write their experiences most of the time...
