I attended my N400 interview on march 1 2017. The officer checked the box " Congratulations, you have been recommended for approval. Next morning I checked online and it says I have been scheduled for oath ceremony and the letter has been mailed. The same day, another letter was mailed stating that my oath ceremony has been cancelled. I am freaking out right now. I am super nervous. I don't know what could have happened, that will warrant the cancellation. I have called the 800 number but I was told that no cancellation notice has been updated on my profile online. Right now, I have received both letters and they both have same date.

Does anyone have this kind of experience recently? I am in CA.

It happens quite a bit actually and usually has nothing to do with you the applicant, but rather the Field Office/Court might not be have able to hold Naturalization Ceremonies that day for some reason. Typically you will be getting a new date within a week or so.

It's happened to people I know and even if you google it you will realize it does happen.
