Citizenship Interview Experience

I had my naturalization interview yesterday. I was able to answer all questions successfully (civics, english etc). At the end, the officer said that my immigration file was missing some documentation and he has to wait for it to arrive to approve my application. I asked if there was some documentation that i could provide, but he mentioned nothing from my end was needed.
He handed me a Citizenship notice mentioning that no further action is needed from me and they are waiting for 'complete permanent immigration file'.

Hello All,

My mother is over 71 years old and she went for the N-400 interview yesterday at Chicago DO office. My brother-in-law went with her and requested if he could accompany her. The IO, a lady officer in her late 40's said 'No'. But, we saw many people accompanying with the candidates.

OCI Experience at CKGS Atlanta office

Country: 
United States
My Experience - I submitted my application at CKGS Atlanta office. I went to Consulate general of India office to collect my OCI. They asked me if I received mail from them and I didn't receive any mail. I did receive mail from CKGS requesting me to drop/mail the passport. They asked me to go back to CKGS office and told me that they will be handling it. The girl at CGI is nice, but she pretended not to acknowledge the process.

Country: 
United States

My interview was on, 6.18.2014. I got to the Houston TX office at 12.50pm for a 1.20pm interview. They haven't public parking and had to look for a business parking lot around to park in.
After being sworn in, the questions:

1) What does the president cabinet do.
2) What did the declaration of independence do
3) Name one part of the US government
4) How many supreme court justices are there
5) If the president and vice couldn't serve, who becomes president?
6) Forgot!

Atlanta Citizenship Interview

I have read somewhere from another person's experience that if you want a faster Judicial Oath Ceremony, you should take matters into your own hands. What this person did was to call up most of the Judges (District Court?), who can perform such matter, & to ask/request if s/he could perform the service for her. That was how she got hers done quicker than waiting for the normal time frame it takes this type of ceremony to be scheduled. Depending on your DO, it could be a very long time (5-13 months).
