All, wanted to share my interview experience today at USCIS - Holtsville.... arrived at 12:30 PM for 13:05 PM inteview, very light crowd, was promptly called in at 13:10PM. The officer was very cordial and while walking to his office, first thing he suggested was that he wanted to change the eligibility status to 5 yrs since GC vs. the 3 yr route through spouse, which meant avoiding all the unnecessary paperwork req'd to verify marital relationship, etc. So that seemed like a good start to the interview process.

Comment: 
I should say that I have the highest respect for Mr. Khanna both professionally and personally. I got my EB1 GC (1 year total start-to-finish) some time ago through Mr. Khanna’s firm. Worth every penny and I still recommend to all my friends. This is my true feeling. As a matter of fact, I intend to apply for naturalization soon and I had a few questions concerning the same. I just wrote an email to him. Soon he responded back and he proactively gave me a appointment to speak to him at no cost.  He was very kind in clarifying all my question in a friendly manner and suggested that I could apply for the same myself. Who in this day-and-age would dispense free advice knowing tha they are not going to gain anything from it monetarily. To this end, I have great respect for him. Even during my GC process, he was very very helpful and gave the right advice during all the twists-and-turns. I know that many of us are not millionaires, at least staring our lives as non-immigrats in this country. In that regard, while applying for my GC, his services fees were appropriate and the extreme value that he provides. I know that because I inquired with quite a few attorneys at that point in time and was shocked by the extremely outrageous service fee that they demanded.  Furthermore, I know for a fact the immense help he provides indirectly through this forums and free conference calls to the public (not only his clients). I use his forums heavily to do my deligent research related to immigration. Furthermore, he has the website dedicated only for his clients where he was very much accessible via personal chat sessions and enabling people to share a wealth on knowledgebase. I know that there are other forums and none can compare to the one at immigration.com. Finally, I would like to conclude by saying that when it comes to immigration, Mr. Khanna is the man.

Arrived around 9:15am, there were about 50people in the waiting area, checked in with the receptionist, and sat down for my interview. 30mins, 45mins, 60mins, 90MINS went by still no one called my name. Finally someone around 11am called me, so walked all the way down to the other end of the hallway.

After the formalities, I was asked if I had brought anything that I hadn't already submitted, I handed him proof of selective service registration.

I was asked the following questions:

N-400 application

Hi everyone!.I filed N-400 application on 11/21/11 based on the 3 year rule. Interview was scheduled on 3/19/12 at NYC (Federal Plaza). I was a little nervous because everybody was telling me that the NYC office is really hard on marriage based citizenships. Interview was scheduled at 7:00am, there were like 100-150 people on the room (7th floor). I was called in at 8.10am. The first thing the officer asked me (even before saying good morning) was "did you bring your wife and a lot of evidence with you?" I said yes she is here, would you like me to call her?

Chicago interview

Did mine in Chicago on the 22nd last month. First I was asked swear under oath that you're telling the truth and nothing but the truth, and then came a quick firestorm of questions about things in my application. The whole thing was mostly painless. Because I'm a college student who goes to school out of state, they asked me to show them my state ID or driver's licence, and I gave them my licence from my home state with an explanation of my situation, and showed them my proof of enrollment and current class schedule from my school.
