I came here before the age of 16 (I was 15,) and I have no criminal records of any kind. Also I have very good grades, I am in college through a full scholarship (private scholarship since I am undocumented I can't get government benefits.) However when this policy came out I had been here for 4 years and 6 months, and the policy says I must have been here for 5 years from the day the policy came out. Will I be eligible on January when it has been 5 years since I came, or will I never be eligible?

No,,,,you need 5 years from when it came out, not total time in US.
I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.
