Interview Experience:
My interview was scheduled at 7:45 am on April 5th in SF. Got there 15-20 minutes early and there were probably only 10-15 others in the waiting area at the time. At about 8:15 am, an officer came out and called me. The interview was a breeze - he went through my answers in the N-400 application, made me repeat all the Yes/No answers filled in in the form. He didn't ask for any paperwork apart from the passport, GC and driver's licence. Not even for the traffic ticket I had listed - just asked me what the fine was. Then came the civics test (6 questions) and the reading/writing test. 

He then printed out the N-652 form saying I had passed the civics test and would be informed by letter when a final decision was made. He also told me that the next step was for another officer to review my file and I should expect to be scheduled for oath within a month or so.

By 8:30 am, I was out of the USCIS office. Btw, there was a sign on the officer's desk saying all applicants should present their passport, GC, license, tax returns and recent W2s, but the officer didn't ask me for tax returns or W2s.
