Hi Anji, Congrats... My experience is pretty much similar.

VO asked me few questions regarding stay in US, education and job and told me I need to wait for extra couple days to get the passport. 

I noticed him circling 'PIMS' in the form and told me this happens all the time and I will be receiving passport by this weekend so that I can travel back by next week. He handed back info sheet and I797.

I got the same reply. For me the VO said that he has to get clearance from DHS as he didnt receive it yet. and said it will take 3-5 days or by friday. My interview was at 10AM. I checked my status now and it said ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING.
