Hi! I've had my green card for almost 5 years now (it'll be 5 years in December). However, I'm going to France in a study abroad program with my university in January, and the program is supposed to end in July, which means I'd be abroad for 7 months. If I do so, can I still apply for citizenship in October 2013? If I can't, how long will I have to wait until I can apply for citizenship again?
