Interview at Buffalo (NY) DO

I had my interview back in November, at the Buffalo (NY) DO. It was so quick we were in and out of the office within 10- 15 mins. We had a very nice woman officer.

She asked us to swear the oath, she asked us 3 questions and wanted to see our utility bills.

Once she had photocopied them, she came back in the room and said my GC had been approved. She said i should recieve it within 2 weeks, which i did.

Hope everyone's GC interview could be so quick and easy.

The questions I had - I am very grateful.

Now to the story about my interview experience today: My appointment was at 1:30PM but we arrived there at 1:05PM and we were called in like 5minutes later.
