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).

Hello All - Just want to let you know of my interview experience today. We were scheduled for a 9:00 AM interview at the Baltimore office, and having woken up bright and early, both my wife and I were in the waiting room by 8:10 AM. Fairly simple process to check in once you get in the building and find the room. It was early so there just a few people there waiting. Seemed like people were getting called in quickly and the environment was pretty light, stress-free. I was called in 30 minutes early and was ready to go.
Interview done and Recommended for approval.
I have been impressed with the Orlando office. Ours was a very good experience. We arrived 20 mins early got checked in and were called on time for interview. 8 am for me 8:30 for my wife.
I was sworn in by my interviewer a really nice ex marine. Basically told me everything was a formality and as our case was straight forward we would be approved. Gave me the test as we chatted and he did the paper work.

It is my turn today to share Citizenship interview experience with you guys, which was indeed a pleasant one.
Citizenship Journey started on 8/3/09 with submission of application via Fedex Overnight. My interview was at 8:30AM, reached there around 7:30AM, submitted the interview letter at the receptionist window and name was called by a courteous immigration officer at ~ 8:15AM. He just interviewed lady from India and escorted her back to waiting room before calling in my name.
