    i heard some of branches of the military allow permanent residents to join some programs to become officers or reserved officers that allow waiver of citizenship (but require the applicants to acquire citizenship after a certain number of years after joining the program). no?

    Yeah, I don't know of any either. I think you definitely have to be a citizen first.

    You could enlist and work on your naturalization, then you would have better chances of becoming an officer.

    you have to be a full US citizen. If you have dual citizenship you cannot claim to have dual citizenship and become an officer. We have a cadet who is also a german citizen, so he can't maintain his dual citizenship and get commissioned.

    I think its because there will be conflicts on getting you security clearance. However, I think some ROTC programs are willing to take you in before you get your citizenship but you must naturalize before you contract.

    Your best bet would to enlist in the branch you want to become an officer in. Then get your naturalization and then submit for some kind of officer package. Already having your BA degree would help as well.
