Fitness of Character

I just finished the bulk of my Character and Fitness evaluation. It wasn't as bad as I'd feared. I've worked at the same place for ten years, lived in or around the same city for ten years and haven't done anything really bad.

If I'd done this back in September, I could have saved myself $190.

Why didn't I do that?

Oh yeah. First six weeks of law school or something like that.

I'd shelled out almost $1000 in books and spending another $150 on law school didn't seem like anything I wanted to mess with.

I also have to get a copy of my birth certificate, which may prove to be the glitch in my plans. I was born on an Army base in (then, West) Germany. I'm worried that getting a copy of my birth certificate may be quite a challenge because of that.

Has anyone else been in this situation?

I'm a naturalized citizen, and it took quite a while to find my naturalization certificate. I just called the person you're assigned to by last name at the BLE and explained it to her. It ended up not being a big deal.
