US citizenship paperwork

Asked 11 months ago - Irving, TX

I sent in my N-400 Application yesterday, 4 years and 9 months completed on oct 292013. Exact 5 years will be up on Jan 29,2014. I have fulfilled all the requirements for being eligible to apply. What are the next steps? Is it reasonable to expect for me to get citizenship by feb, 2014? My friend told that they gave him the oath the same day as finger printing. What are normal time frames? Thanks a lot..rgds
