Hi, I also posted this in the USNA Forums and would like different opinions. I'm currently a sophomore in High School. I applied for a Greencard in 2004, and I will get it in around 2 years, before I graduate High School. My goal is to attend the Air Force or Naval Academy, however by the time I become a citizen I will be much too old. So my option is to enlist, get citizenship after enlisting, and then attend the academy. How complicated is this process? How willing would CO be to help me in this, for example even if I have outstanding academics and ports, but my CO does not approve, am I out of luck? How long do they want me to stay enlisted before I go to the Academy? I contacted my local representative, and explained to him my situation, and he said it is not in his power to expedite my citizenship. Should I contact a senator? Thanks!
