Aw great, despite having above-average grades and impressive extra curricular resume and records, I just have one basic, tiny thing that will ultimately prevent me from even have a shot at 4yr scholarship for Army ROTC : US citizenship. I am a Korean by birth and in the process of naturalization. If I am lucky, I may be able to get the citizenship by December, and the certification of citizenship for me would take even longer to process through. Even if I do get the citizenship by December, the Army might not accept the US passport documentation as a proof of my citizenship (and may stubbornly require certification instead, idk) And does getting citizenship by December even matter? I know that selection board meet every few months or so starting October and my chances will be diminished significantly. If I am not-so lucky, then I won't be citizen in time before the initial dealine (Jan 10th). So... I guess I am doomed? help! btw, I am applying to 2 service academies... they only need my proof of naturalization before July 1st of next year, which is more than enough time. anyways, any words of advice would be greatly appreciated, because I am literally so distraught by the fact that my whole future goal life an army officer could be destroyed by not having citizenship in time.
