Passport after Oath Ceremony - Oakland - Please help!

Good day ya'll.

 

I attended the oath ceremony in Oakland on Aug 14th. Right after the ceremony, I dropped off my application with the US Department of State/Passport Agency officials. However, I did not get any confirmation from them. It was just a drop off, based on what I have been told during the Oath ceremony.

 

So, the next day, I went to the San Francisco Passport Agency on Golden Gate Ave and they said, I should wait to hear back from them and that my application is handled at a different location and SF office cannot provide any details at this time.

 

This uncertainity of whether my packet is properly sent for processing AND when I could expect to hear back from them is killing me, tbh! The only proof I have is the fact that I took a picture of the packet with my name, dob and the check amount, written on a sticky note provided by the passport agency representatives at the Oath ceremony. 

 

I feel like I should have just waited and submitted the application at USPS rather than this ongoing limbo.

 

My question is:

 

Did anyone drop off their application after the oath ceremony?

 

If so, how how long did it take to hear back from them?

 

I truly appreciate any thoughts or experiences.

 

Thank you for your time.

 

PS: I checked my application status on travel dot state dot gov website. It says, "not found" :(
