Mine took two weeks from filing for biometrics, but then a year for my interview to be scheduled.

I mean you can hope for 4-6 months, but that is not a realistic expectation. You have to remember this is not standard timeline expectations. They are still backlogged from the shutdown and right now a LOT of people are scrambling to get naturalized as they have this unrealistic fear of deportation. I live in Southern California so my filing center likely takes a lot longer than others. I see you are filing through Texas though so you are also going through an office with a HUGE number of immigrants. I would be prepared for a long wait. At my ceremony recently I met someone who filed through a different office than Santa Ana and they still had a 9 month wait for an interview date.
