Status changed out of order?

My husband and I had our citizenship interview yesterday. His was at 8:30 am and mine at 11:50 am. When he came out of his interview, he said the officer congratulated him and approved his application. 30 min later we got 2 SMSs for the change of case status and I confirmed on egov.uscis.gov the history of the changes. He got the following:

"We recommended that your form N-400, application for Naturalization, be approved. Your case was submitted for quality review." right after that, the latest change says: "Your form N-400, Application for Naturalization, was placed in line for oath ceremony scheduling" therefore, his latest update shows: "Oath Ceremony will be scheduled"

Then I was called and the interview went really smooth. at the end the officer told me he was required to review my whole file and that he could not give me an answer just yet. He said, he would review the file by the end of the day but that he does not anticipate any problems. 2 hours later I got 6 SMSs for the change of my case status and when review in the history on egov.uscis.gov I see the following:

First change of status: "Your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, was placed in line for oath ceremony scheduling." and then, I got the "We recommended that your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, be approved. Your case was submitted for quality review." Therefore, the latest change shows as "Case Was Submitted For Quality Review Based On An Approval Recommendation"

when I check my status on myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov it says: "We approved your application, Your final step to becoming a citizen is to attend your naturalization ceremony. We will mail you a letter when we schedule your naturalization ceremony."

I cannot check my husband's as he never opened the account. Does myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov have a status for "in line for scheduling" or for "quality review"? I am trying to find what are all the statuses possible but I cannot find any info

What do you all think? I know I just need to wait and see. At this point I do not know if I am in line for scheduling or if they are reviewing my case.

Congrats on passing the interview!


Sometimes the status can jump back and forth a bit as you near the finish line.  The main thing to focus on is that at the end of your interview the IO stated he was recommending you for approval, and the online case status showed the approval.  


Keep checking the online status---You should see the status change to the oath ceremony letter being mailed once they've scheduled you.
