So after 6 years my ROC was finally approved; since they took their sweet sweet time processing my ROC. Am i able to just apply for my N400 right away? I should've been eligible to apply from year 3 technically right?

Congratulations!!!

You should be able to apply under 5 year rule if you've been LPR for over 5 years, didn't have any trips over 180 days at a time and in general spent over 30 months in the US in the last five years. 

 

Of course you should have filed taxes and didn't have any serious crimes.

Based on your profile, you have been a LPR since February of 2016. If the physical presence requirements were met, you would have been eligible to file two years ago (or even four years ago under the 3-year-rule). Best of luck with your N400 journey. It’s the last leg. 

And wow! Your ROC was crazy long!

You could have possibly applied when first becoming eligible about 4 years ago.  You probably would have been a citizen years ago.  File under the 5-year rule.

I bet @JDWright was busy with other things in life. Meanwhile his LPR matured like a good wine and his N-400 will be a cherry on the top of the cake he ordered for dessert!

 

Good data point as to how long I-751 can take to be decided.

 

Did you have RFEs, any complications or gotchas you could share @JDWright

I only had one RFE, thought I put it in my timeline, I'll check, anyway, I responded to that promptly enough if I recall it was just asking for proof of joint finances, easy oversight on my part, easy fix too. They just dragged and dragged and dragged with a result.

Hopefully, you'll get a fast N-400 interview & approval.  I suggest you file online under the 5 year rule. It's pretty straightforward.
