I have become a permanent resident in April 2007 and then took several trips outside the USA, each of which with a duration of more than 6 months but less than 1 year. The reason for my stay for that long every time I went outside the USA was to complete my associate degree in the home country. Since February 2012, I have been staying in the US continuously. I want to file for naturalization in Feb 2014. Can I be granted citizenship in 2014 even though I had not been continuous resident until February 2012?
