The reason I ask is, that at my wife's naturalization interview, the officer told her that her file just had reached the field office a day before her interview.
I am still waiting for my interview to be scheduled, and have been told that NBC sent my file to local field office for adjudication.
I am confused, please help! How does this process work?
The local USCIS Field Office is responsible for conducting your naturalization interview and adjudicating your application.

The actual field office that schedules you for the interview (because they have jurisdiction over your place of residence) makes the decision on your application for citizenship.
