I am so sorry, first of all congrats on your interview appointment, I just have a question, you filed your N400 online for the DC office on 10/01/2019, when did you received your notification about your interview appointment scheduled?, I files on 09/29/2019 and still have not received an interview appointment.

What are you so sorry about ? I received the online notification in MYUSCIS profile on the 11th Feb and the letter through the mail on the 18th Feb, have you checked your online profile and is there a message there?

I am so sorry about bothering you with my question, that's what I meant, and I have, no messages, it only says the my case is being actively reviewed by USCIS.
Fcat on 2020-02-20 said:
Oh no problem about the question, i am sure you will get details soon, just keep checking onkine as it shows online usually a week before you get the letter in the mail

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
