Assuming you have no other issues with your status other than dropping out of school, and you had an F-1, and you want to become a LPR ("green card"), your US citizen wife can petition for your permanent resident status. If you were on a J-1 and there was a residency requirement on the visa (2 year back in your home country) then you cannot get your green card through your wife until you have satisfied the 2 years or get a waiver. You should consult an attorney to thoroughly discussion your options and potential road blocks due to your violation of status by dropping out of school.
