Missed my original biometrics appointment because I got the letter at night on the day of the appointment (USPS hold mail screw-up), so I went the next day - no problem. Same-day oath in Portland!

Hi. How did your interview in Portland went? I have interview there next month.

It was super easy. Everybody was real nice and friendly, really pleasant. You even can take pictures/film during the oath ceremony.

Great! Thank you. In that case I have a lot of questions for you. Would it be possible to chat on a private email?

Congrats on your passport. Do they always have same day ceremony? Also I see you applied for passport couple days later, do you need to send your original naturalization certificate?

I don't know whether they have same-day oath every day of the week. In general, you can only get same-day oath if you have your interview in the morning. Otherwise you get a later oath date. When I took my oath, the wait time was about 2 months (there were people with interviews in November at my January oath). And yes, you need to send your original certificate with the passport application.

Oh wow. That 2 months is long. I have interview 10 am so hopefully it is same day. How soon do I need to change status with SSN? If I don't have certificate for couple weeks, I guess I have to wait or should I go SSN office first?

With 10 am you should get a same-day offer if you get approved right away. You will get your certificate during the oath, so you have it the same day you become a citizen.
